2015 RMZ 250
Updated Review 1 Year ownership.
For anyone who read my initial review, you will recall I praised the RMZ 250 for its outstanding handling. I have decided to come back a year later to go over my thoughts of ownership and maintenance.
Performance- The bike still runs fantastic and starts up with ease. No major issues whatsoever. My only complaint with the RMZ is the clutch. Despite installing the Rekluse auto clutch, sometimes the bike has a really faint clutch feel. Perhaps replacing the OEM clutch basket may help. In my experience the bike shifts fine despite the faint feel. You essentially just need to trust the bike and be deliberate with your shifts. When the bike gets hot the clutch (for me at least) loses some of the feel when traveling from 2nd gear to 3rd.
Maintenance - I've put a good number of hours this year on the bike, and she still runs great. Routine oil changes, air filter cleaning, improved coolant, etc, have gone a long way (in my opinion) of the bike running and performing well on the track.
