    Recently picked up a clean 2001 Kawasaki Kx85 for my 12 year old son. He moved up from a Klx110. 
    So far it runs great. Starts right up, idles perfectly, revs well and pulls hard. A little spooge from the tailpipe but I will be jetting the carb asap.

    Here we go again with another chapter in the Yamaha saga. This platform we have an 03 YZ250. Still very fresh and loaded with goodies like Applied clamp, Renthal Fatbars, Kevlar grips, Pro Circuit Works pipe, Pro Circuit suspension, Maxxis Desert IT tires, One Ind. Graphics and seat, DID gold chain and more. 
    Some blue ASV levers and a '10/'17 front fender upgrade finish off the front end. A new air filter,  fresh atf in the gearbox, new NGK BR8ES,Yamalube 32:1 and all other fluids topped off and she is ready to rip. 
    First rides to the track and deserts of so cal have me wondering why I even sold my 2 strokes. Don't get me wrong, I love my XCF 250, but YZ250's will always have a home with me.

    I absolutely love this bike. My first KTM, also my first 4 stroke. Powerful, nimble, light, precise, reliable. This bike has it all. I have owned the major four Japanese brands and had a KTM 50 sx sr pro for my son that he outgrew. I have always known the prowess of KTM bikes, but this modern 4 stroke displays what they are truly capable of. Light and strong SX frame and motor, trailworthy 18" rear, large desert tank that feels small, handguards, electric AND kick start!.. and kick stand. The motor pulls hard from idle to limiter (which is high!) you can ride this thing down low like a 450 in tight off camber single track or pulling long hills in deep sand. Or you can rev it to the moon and flick it sideways like a 125. Love it. When the motor needs freshening, and I need more juice, big bore kit and done. Oh ya, btw the suspension. Oh the suspension. Very good for stock. I am 5'10" 185 and this thing is stuff enough for whoops and big jumps but plush enough to keep me riding hard and not be fatigued. Best of both worlds. Thank god the Sx/ xcf has linkage.
