  1. Well so far I've put around $100 into it which is nothing but I got a new shifter (The old one was stripped out because the PO did not tighten it when he put it on ) new fork seals, rear wheel bearings, and new rear brake pads. I kind of figured by the end it would be up in the thousands or so but its a project over time. I know I'm going to need rims and street tires, what would be your suggestion? SM rims and tires for them?
  2. Fredrick Mac Factory pipe too. ANYWAYS, any useful information? lol
  3. I have a 93 KDX250 that I just bought it today for only $500! I read a lot about it before I bought it and from my understanding its pretty much a 2 stroke with the brute of a 4 stroke at low end. I want to convert this bike into a "supermoto" but I will not be competing in anything or anything like that I just want to ride it on the road as a street bike kind of. I bought the bike and the only thing wrong with it really is that the shifter is stripped out. Of course there are other things that need to be done too, like hopefully repainting it/getting all the flat black crappy paint the kid that had it before me had on it off and get it back to its original kawi green former glory. It also needs the carb probably re-jetted because it has a pro-circuit pipe to an FMF turbine, the headlight bands are snapped on one side, the rear brake does not work at all, seems to me like the rear wheel bearings are bad, the carb needs to be cleaned, the fork seals are leaking, the rear fender was cut and the rear brake light was cut off with it, I don't have the title for the 93 frame but it is not stolen and I have a 91 frame that I got with it that I do have the title for so I'm going to have to switch everything over to that frame, probably needs new pads all around, kickstand, I need to lower the bike because it is a little too tall for me, I know the EX500 ninja rims fit some supermoto's. I was wondering what rims would fit my bike that are wider then mine that I can put street tires on or if I can just use the rims I have now. I also heard something about having to change the piston on 2 strokes every 50-60 hours which might be a problem if I am using it to ride around town on every once in a while. Also, I was wondering what type of fluids to use on it if I'm going to be riding it the way I want. Here are some pictures of it
  4. Well my girlfriend's brother and I attempted to get it right for the bike. So far it runs and idles great, BUT when the gas gets low (I think) it idles super high to the point where I shut it off because I'm afraid of something going wrong with it.
  5. That's exactly what I did, it runs a little funny sometimes with the idle but besides that it runs awesome.
  6. Very nice man, looks really good. The pedal was a nice touch.
  7. I wish you would have done a full write up (Yes I know this is old but I'm doing the same thing and I need some advice).
  8. Yeah I must have bought it from somewhere else but when I bought it I had to put my vehicle in and it said "This item fits your vehicle"
  9. If I were you I would get the KLX110, it is a great little bike. Plus the aftermarket parts for it are ridicules so you probably won't have a problem with getting a good amount of power out of it. I know they also make a 4th gear drum you can add also if you need to for more top speed. I have a KLX 125 and I'm 20 5'8 or so, it fits me pretty well.
  10. Recently I bought a rebuild kit for my carb and long story short I ended up stripping the bolt head on one of the bolts in the carb so I ended up buying a new cheap little $38 Japanese carb. I put it on the bike and it works great so far. I figure for now I'll keep it on until I have the money for an OEM Mikuni one again. I also bought a silencer/spark arrestor, new Renthal grips, a K&N filter (The other one was falling apart and looked like it was probably the one from 2005 because it fell apart when I pulled it out). I also bought new brake shoes for the back (which didn't work before I got it and when I opened it up the pad closest to the inside of the bike was laying on the bottom of the braking surface so that hasn't been replaced obviously either since 2005), I changed the oil, I bought a new adjuster screw for the front brake because the one that was on the bike was stripped out and useless. Anyways, this is what I bought http://www.motosport...ARK-ARRESTOR-35 . I found though that that part that is right before the spark arrestor screen where it looks like it gets bigger then the rest of it actually makes it not fit past a certain point inside the exhaust so I took like a whole day grinding that piece down and it still doesn't fit so I'm going to get the mounting plate moved back to fit better in the exhaust. The silencer works though so as far as that I'm not complaining, I am kind of upset though that they said it would fit my bike and there was like no way it would have fit before. This is a video of a 12 o'clock bar on a little 50, its basically a bar for the back under the rear fender that you can stand on to do stand up wheelies and things like that on.
  11. Yeah I know! I'm very satisfied with my purchase and I know I could sell it for much more then I bought it for. The seller wanted $750 for the bike and I talked him down to $650 before I went and got it.

  12. He used a GoPro, says it in the title. Not sure which one but the video looks great. I definitly need to pick up a GoPro soon.
  13. Hello, my names Joey. I recently picked up a 2005 Kawisaki KLX 125 for $650, since then I have spent $200 on parts for it so far trying to do the maintenance and get it back to how it should be running. I have changed the oil, tightened the chain, put a new spark plug in it, ordered a new K&N air filter, ordered new handle grips, a new brake cable adjuster bolt, ordered a carb rebuild kit, new back brake shoes, and got a fuel filter for it. I still have a few things I have to do and have questions about. The first is does anyone know where I can get a 12 o'clock bar for it (preferably one that bolts on so I can take it off when I'm not using it)? The second is that I have fuel coming from the bottom of my carb when I start the bike and I was told it had something to do with the float but I'm not sure what exactly it is, maybe one of you do? Third question is that my shifter has a HUGE amount of play, I was told that inbetween the shifter and the little bar it sits on there is supposed to be a bushing but mine is gone, can I get one of those or do I have to buy a whole new shifter? Figured I would post it in here too since the Kawisaki side is a little slower and they are the same thing anyways.
