2008 rmz250....any known issues?

Recommended Posts

i bought an 08 brand new summer of 2010 and have had nothing to complain about, nothing in the motor has gone wrong. only really thing i can complain about is that the acerbis desert tank is kinda a bitch if you plan on putting on radiator cages and a scoots stabo. for the cages i had to cut off the top mounting bar about an inch and the stabo fit good but the tank was to long where you bolt it down to the frame, i had to take off the tank and put it in a vise with a heat gun to shrink down the nose on the tank.

but even then it not really a mechanical issue. i have mine for woods and if your gonna do MX you might have a different story. . . i have seen some bad stories on here but there mostly from 07 and 11. but anything can really happen to any one.

all in all though its a solid bike, i love mine and im sure you be very happy with it

75 hours and my motor went.i rode the track like 3 times with it and the rest trails. it had to be fully rebuilt the only thing still goood was the clutch and transmission. $2000 later its fixed. i got 25 hours on new motor an now theres and strange ticking noise coming from the head. also if your a fast rider this things has no top end as you will see by how fast the power band signs of at half throtte.
