99 kx250 vs 2000 rm125

Recommended Posts

I have a 2000 RM125 and I have been thinking about maybe getting a 250. A guy I know has a 99 KX250 and said he would trade me straight up. I'm just wondering what you guys thought of the 99kx250 in comparison to the rm125.

Front brakes will suck, but that's as simple as swapping on a newer model master cylinder. If it's in equal condition to yours I would do it

I love my 99' - barks like mad right off idle, super strong midrange, so-so on top. Basically, the anti-125 engine, lol - it is the complete opposite of say, my friends '00 KX125 (nothing nothing nothing BAM!!!SCREAMFOREVER). Won the magazine shootouts of the day - KX250s were tops from like 97-99/2000. I swapped a master cylinder from the same year CR250 on, much better feel and braking power.

Can you ride the guy's bike? Seems like that would be the easiest way to decide. :thumbsup:
