03 KX-250 -- is it worth it?

I have an opportunity to buy a friends 2003 kx250 for $1000. It is all stock except for a pipe/exhaust. It was trail ridden 10-15 times a year (most of which I was present for) until 2007 at which time it was stored away in a garage.

I'm not sure if all the fuel was drained when it was stored so I'm curious what if any action will be required there... Carb rebuild/cleanup? Plug? Etc...?

bottom line - how does the price look...?

is it average, a real steal, high, etc..

thanks for any/all input.


I would buy it for that price but bikes around here would be in the $3000-4000 range for an 03 unless it was a junker.

If it is in good shape, that is a great deal. Around here that would be $1,500-1,800 depending on condition. I'd have no problem a grand for an 03 as long as it was well maintained.

I'd buy it!

buy it!

If you don't buy it I would!

buy it now

Ware in Cali ., I have a G

thanks for the feedback. Looks like I'll be picking the bike up tonight for 1K.

dang I need friends more like those you have.

The '03 KX-250 is home... going to spend some time this weekend getting the maintenance current and firing it up. Cosmetically, the bike is in excellent condition and from my knowledge I'm expecting the same mechanically.


More before pics!!!!!!:busted::busted:

      Alright, found three bikes all located where i live in Texas. I know they're all very different, but if you could tell me what you think each bike is worth, and which one would be the best deal. Thanks.
      Notes: Both 2 strokes have new top ends. I think the front brake lever is broken on the kawasaki.

      So I'm at a bit of a cross roads, I currently own a 06 rm250 and I love it. I also have a 02 kx250 which I'm selling with intent to buy a newer two stroke. I can't afford a newer ktm and the older ones aren't that great and kawasaki never impressed me. so I'm stuck between 06 yz250 and 05 cr250. I've heard the yz and rm after 06 are almost the same bike just the Suzuki handles better and the Yamaha has better suspension. So I'm not sure if I wanna buy carbon copy of my bike with slight differences. That's why I'm interested in a cr250 I heard the 02+ models RC valves are shit garbage but was mostly fixed in the 05-07 models. I ride at a track and at some bogs down the road from me. So from people who have owned both, what would you recommend. I know the cr is known for a hard hitting power band which I enjoy since im an aggressive rider. Should i just see which deal comes my way first.
