They require the same amount of maintaince as any of the other 250f's, except come with a much stronger motor. Your mates probably just cant afford a different bike then what they've got and dont want you to have something better!

do your homework and decide. Asking this question on a kxf forum will get you a different opinion than asking the same question on the yzf/crf/rmz forums.

You may also want an opinion from the mechanics who fix these bikes.

That hot start screw is a PITA

I have had two '04's, an '06, '07, 09, and now an '11. They have all been raced hard and cared for properly and I have never had a mechanical failure.

ive had an 08, 09. i think kawis chassis holds up better than the hondas and everything else nowadays. and my motor is still bullet proof on my 09 with 129 hours. change the oil every 8 hours and keep a clean bike and filter.
