    RMZ250 Plastic Questions

    I'm pretty sure it will work. My kx250f has 2010 plastics an it's a 07, I'm sure rmz would work with a little TLC an washers to make perfect fits but the bolting matches, I'd assume Suzuki would match up as well

    Trail riding tips NEEDED ASAP!

    Hey guys, update on the situation, been away from TT so sorry for delay. Put on some weight closure to my suspension, (147lbs) an it has helped, I've noticed a great deal on my riding style being a huge factor with the heavier bike, you guys have all contributed to a great riding season with lots of tips. Some of you probbaly saved my ass on some turns I would have came into 5th tapped lol thanks guys

    125 vs 250F bike advice needed

    i don't suggest the 250f you will be using the clutch a lot to keep up the rpms.. also if your just going around the farm an what not doing lets say mid to full throttle 30% the time and mid to low 70% your still going to run into a rebuild top or bottom what ever goes first an your looking at a 1000$ down the drain just to put around with your son. a 2 stroke can take the low spends with a little rev here an there, blipping the throttle just to keep momentum. Rebuild cost 200 bucks and i don't think youll need one by going mid to low throttle 70% the time. plus, a 125 is not that small dude, a 125 can throw you around pretty good, so id say go for it, wont cost much to fix, has power can keep low rps an wont be engine breaking bad. aslo its a Kawasaki over a Yamaha situation, you cant go a stray with a kawi. just encase any thumper cats come on here an say im bias against the 4 stroke. i ride a kx250f so the only bias i am saying is the brand. i genuinely think you will get more from a 2 stroke in your situation an purpose. have fun man

    2004 YZ250f or 2005 KX 250f?

    i have owned kawis all my life ever since my cr80 and yz85 blew up.... so with bitter blood i started with the green team, you will love the green team we are like the dark side of motto x, we never fail you and will always blow your competition out of the &%$#@!ing track. lol jokes aside, the 250f that your looking at is an ok model, i wouldn't pick it over a 09 but it is not a bad model. you will have issues with starting it hot until you get the trick, there are plenty of threads to help. DONT get a Yamaha. never had good luck with them and my friends have always had issues with running smooth on a 2011 and he had a 2008.. both were junk in my opinion.. but if the YZ looks cleaner an more "mint" then get it over the kawi

    125 2t or 250 2t

    i think you have your mind set on the 250 and i would say good job. I have been through the whole selection of bikes and i weight, from 166 to 125lbs i know what weight can hep and hurt. as for weight, the 125 and 250 2t are both lite compared to the 250fs an 450fs so in trails you will have much easier time cornering and easier going faster speeds. i have had the 125 the 250 2t the 250fs and 450fs the favorable one is kx250f but since you are a 2 stroke guy il give you all the advice youll need for the 250 2t, first il say the 125 is great but like you said not enough top end and you will soon be looking for a bigger bike. how ever, this being your first race bike obviously there are things to know about the 250s, they are not by any means not capable of making you shit your f****** pants. they have insane power in all ranges and if you are not carful will have you with road rash on the ass. so with that in mind, with such power always be using the clutch, and grip with your legs not your hands (if that makes sense) , because one slip of the throttle and your done. also be mindful of your traction, rear tire has a lot of traction on pavement an will pop the front easily in the air ( the front tire is slipper though and don't take turns so aggressively on pavement) none of the bikes you mentioned will prepare you for any race bike 125 or 450, the race bike models are meant to go 0-100 as quick as possible, so don't think you can master a race bike without some practice first. 135 is a ok weight for a 250 2t, i was 115 when my dad first let me ride is 450f and it was hard but do-able, youll be able to start a 250 2t easily both kick or bump. my only issue is.... Suzuki really???????? hahahh good luck man

    Bike won't start

    My kx250f has huge issues getting going when hot. my advice is if you a running the same bike 2006-07 kx250f, they flood extremely easy. so, open throttle pull choke kick over a few times. shut choke off, three throttle twist then shut gas off, have throttle at mid twist an it should kick over, if cold. hot! i have not found the perfect solution yet, but before i shut off, i shut gas off and let idle down, then shut off. it fires first kick 80% of the time hope that helps

    Your worst motorbike crash/stack?

    few months ago on my kx250f i was riding down the street my friends in order to meet up for some trail riding.. some lovely ladies were staying at the small motel in our town, cracking the throttle to do some wheelies for them i hit a speed bump, whisky throttled the bike landing on my ass. lesson learned, don't be a idiot, rev bike you want to look cool, safer and sounds better
  8. im not new to riding but I am new to riding in the bush. I have left the MX scene but I need help. I am riding a kx250f that I have been using on the track. My buddy has been riding in the bush his whole life he is riding a rm125. I am having huge issues keeping up, in trails there is nothing to use for turns an with such a heavier bike i am often slowing down as fast as i can or i wont make the turns. i have road his 125 an i can easily make the same turns at a higher speed no problem. so my question is what is my issue ? is it skill? or is it weight ? may it be my suspension ? 1) if its skill, what can i do to keep the speed without using berms or other traction aids. 2) if it is weight, how can i solve this without getting a lighter bike? 3) my suspension situation has changed due to me losing a lot of weight (personal reason) my suspension is at 170lbs, i was 166lbs. but now im barley pushing 125lbs this is also partly why i no longer race track, i cant afford re-valving or different springs right now ( i know it is a huge issue by itself) I don't know what to do that would help, i have been riding much as i can on the trails thinking its skill, but i cant get it without slowing down, my turns are just to hard, im ether going off the trail or i have to lean so much the front end wash's out or other issues. Trail riding is harsher then track in my opinion and id like some help, my friend goes so fast that i cant keep up and it takes the fun away. please help.
  9. Wrote this thread along time ago, my main reason for posting was from a business perspective and to take advantage of the minimal amount of Tracks around the surrounding towns. I didn't remember to check this thread, I have now a private track and it is slowly being rented by youth and local teams for practice. Hope to up size soon.

    Kawasaki KX250F 2007

    Weight is fine for the amount of power, it is a great bike for someone who's a intermediate or someone with a little experience and throttle control. The power is controllable, but it can be a little harsh in rough slow moving trails. top end is remarkable compared to other brands, Smoked the 2015 YZ250f and RMZ 2012 model. KX 250F Great bike
