I need some help.

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. Long story short, I want a track bike to ride the tracks with my friends when I'm not out in the desert. I found a used 08 Kawi 250f and have some of the photos the guy sent me, but I wanted an opinion on the bike. The story is, the bike was a magazine shoot out bike that was sold to some other owner, which then sold it to the current (3rd) owner. He claims it has 20-25 hours on it, but has no hour meter on it. What was the color of the clutch cover for the 08 year? I thought it was the brownish magnesium color, but this bike is completely silver/polished, which leads me to believe it has much more than 25 hours on it. The owner also claims there was never any engine work done to the bike. What do you guys think? Sorry this is so long.

Thanks :thumbsup:

First off, most shootout reviews admit they put 10-30 hours on the bikes. As for the clutch cover stock was a brown color. I have seen people remove the paint from the clutch cover to create what looks like a polished aluminum.

FYI- I couldnt load the photos.

Yea, that's what I thought too with the shootout bikes. No worries on the pics; I've seen them on Google images. I just wanted to be sure. Thanks for the post :thumbsup:.

      Hi, I have just bought a kx250f, 2013 with a freshly rebuilt 2016 motor in it, this is my first time on these forums, anyways, I have also bought a lowering link to drop it 4 inches on the arse, I was wondering if anyone knows how much I should drop the forks? 
      I havent put the lowering link on yet.

      Recently had issues with the original fcr carburator that was installed in my 2009 kx250f, tried jetting multiple time and different gas and the bike would only run with the choke ziptied out. Do I went ahead and purchased the lectron gen 2 4 stroke carburator kit, was kinda expensive and I was kind sceptical but after my first ride all I got to say is wow. The only adjustment I have done it set the idle, the bike runs amazing and feels as if there is more power than before. The kit came with a new throttle tube assembly and a g2 throttle tube with adjustable cams for throttle response. I highly recommend if you have a carburator on your four stroke and don't want to get a new dirtbike that is fuel injection then go the route of throwing out that junk fcr carburator and get a lectron gen 2 carburator for your old 4 stroke

      I own a 2012 Kx250F that I would like to make street legal if possible and I recently saw Rocky mountain I believe sells these battery packs that sit in the airbox for bikes without batteries that looks too good to be true and a headlight and turn signals like a conversion kit basically and I was curious as if anyone has had luck with those or if there junk it would be nice to make my bike street legal for short trips or just have lights for trail riding with friends that already do if possible any tips on converting it?
