So I drove down to So Cal to get the 2009 KX250F from Sara Price. The motor was just being put back into it by the mechanic after Pro Circuit rebuilt it. The nice thing is the Pro Circuit motors don't have the black covers on the top or sides so they won't get all beat up and look old right away. The bike sounds totally different than my 06 but maybe that is just because it is a full PC motor. It sounded like a 450. I can't wait to ride it. I don't know why but it seems longer than my 06 also but I don't believe it is. They told me lots of iundustry stories (some I can't repeat) and I found it interesting that they said that the 09 was a better bike than a 2010. They said Kawasaki was trying to save some money on the 2010 design and did not put things into it that the 2009 had. By the way, Sara and her mechanic (Hoodie) have another 2009 race bike for sale if anyone is interested. Just let me know and I can give you a number to contact. I saw it being put together.
