New owner of a 96 KX 250 !!

Recommended Posts

Got lucky and found a MINT 96 KX 250 gently used im the lucky 3rd owner :smirk: Original stock One Ind seat cover/graphics ... frame paint etc barely a scratch for a 96 :banana:

I have had a couple 125's and i LOVE the extra power of the 250 can't get enough of the power and the sweet 250 2T sound BRAAP ! :bonk:

Im runnin 14 / 49 gearing , 160 / 42 jets fatty pipe stock shorty silencer ... she's a ripper ... power wheelies in all gears no problem :busted:

I just love the fact that you dont have to ring it out like a 125 to get usable power ... im 160 lbs so there is lots more low end power than a 125 wow !

Can't wait to freshen her up over the winter !

The 250 is by far my fav bike .... prev bikes 97 kx 125 , 93 cr 125

Here are a few pics ...

Jeekinz ... does your bike do the cold start high rev? when was warmer it didn't rev too high but now as temp has dropped it revs way high for 2 sec until i can adjust choke ... i was thinking about making something to keep choke only halfway open so it doesn't rev to moon !

Chokey stated cud be rich pilot but bike runs crisp and plug looks good ... im runnin 40 / 160 main here in Chicago ... dont want to go too lean on pilot in winter

Any suggestions ??

Just throttle the choke on off on off until it settles down. Every KX250 I owned did that. Right now im just running stock pipe and silencer on my 94 until something neat shows up.

Thanks thats what i do now but just thought there was a better way or a "fix" ... just a pain trying to start it and quickly reach the choke before it revs to moon ... i guess good to know its " normal "

When it warms up im dropping my pilot down a size to see if Chokey is correct about too big of a pilot plus the choke circuit causing the high revs when cold start
