Bought this 250x from a buddy at work. His son in law was the original owner and only rode it for a season. The tank was delaminated and cracked, and the carb needs rebuilt. But he said he would take 500 for it and I couldn’t pass it up. Here are some photos of how it looked when I first put it in my truck to now.
First thing I did was replace the fuel tank, lines and petcock assembly. I went with the IMS 2.7 gal tank. The first time I rode it the throttle tube broke (it was sitting for 16 years, the plastic got brittle) and hung open. Now I’m going to replace the throttle tube and grips, and get the JD jetting kit and possibly a new exhaust (baffle is removed on stock, might as well replace it before the jet kit). Also I want to put on skid plates, and hand gaurds. I don’t have a ton of area to ride where I normally go but am hoping to go to a spot around 1 1/2 hrs from me.
