2011's any good?

Im looking at getting a 250F and WAS just going to get a leftover 2011 but it seems like every time i look on here there is something else going majorly wrong with the 2011, are these bikes just not worth a crap or am i just seeing all the bad stories and none of the good? Is it well worth it to wait on the 2012 and spend the extra$$?

the 11 is a great bike. The 12 will be far superior.

2011 is a great bike, but the 2012 is better. if you can get a good deal on a '11 its worth it, but if its about the same price as the '12 i would wait.:thumbsup:

I doubt that the price will be even close, but i have just heard so much about this low end trouble i was just wondering if everyone is having this prob at 40 hrs or if it just a hand full of people. I am pretty sure that the 2011 will be much cheaper unless i have that rod issue and i end up fixing stuff or worse fixing me, just trying to get a feel for the 11 from everyone who has one.

if you can do your own work and this rod is an issue and not just a select few you can allways just replace the crank during this winter..

      Alright so I just rebuilt my 2012 kx250f complete rebuild. I put the motor back in the bike get everything hooked up and ready to go it takes a few kicks at first (obviously) but after it starts it sat and idled just fine for a while then it stalled out. Tried to start it again wouldn't start I took the spark plug out of it it looked good I was dark and wet. I cleaned it then put the spark plug back in it it took a few kicks but started right back up again then after a while it stalled out again and now I can't get it to start again!? Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you guys and girls for reading and hopefully for the help!!!

      As close to new as I'd imagine you'd get! I bought the bike brand new, I'm older and have taken extremely good care of this bike. Very little use and is COMPLETELY stock - everything is original. 
      Comes with the title, original book and map couplers for the fuel injection.
      $4700 - cash

      Just thought maybe everyone could post up there youtube channels an we could all help eachother out by subscribing to one another.
      Heres mine ill sub back asap.
      This has been fun in other sections of TT, so I'll start the thread here and see if we can keep it going.
      Let us know what kind of mods, fixes, changes, etc.., you performed today, or just general fun you had with, your KX250F.
      I'll start with.. I installed a correct for my weight Race Tech shock spring, along with a Pivot Works shock spring thrust bearing. Also cleaned out all the nasty yellow plastic/wax crap that passes for grease in the lower shock bearing, and re-lubed it with Bel Ray waterproof.

      Time for a top end on my bike, just wondering if there are any alternative Valve springs i can use. I have PC cams and $400 for just the springs and retainers is alil costly at the moment.
