  1. So today my 09 KLX250 was sitting in the driveway after I got home from work, when I went back outside the bike is lying on the ground, and as I pick it back up I can see the kickstand completely failed. Basically the weld on the kickstand to the frame just broke off, it seems like a major flaw that Kawasaki thought putting the entire weight of the bike on a weld that was connected to a SUPER THIN circular steel frame part. No idea what they were thinking here. I went online and found other people have had the exact same problem, and really there has been no fix/resolution. Here is a picture of someones after they had a temporary fix on the weld. (Not mine), but mine broke in EXACTLY the same place. I was just wondering if anyone has ever heard of / had this problem, and what I can do about it. My bike was bought brand new in 2008 so I am out of warranty, am I completely out of luck?

    Duals or Single

    There are different benefits from each system. The single pipe is lighter, which translates to increased power (Although most of us couldn't tell the difference) The Duals have equal weight distribution which may contribute to better handling/overall balance. (This also is probably another unnoticeable difference for more of us riders anyway) Honestly all I think it comes down to is cost, repair cost and personal preference. Singles are cheaper to buy in the first place, cheaper to replace when you crash, and I like the look better. Which is why I recommend a single over duals.

    Need a New Oil, Maxima is breaking my bank

    Thanks for the answer, any other responses?
  5. Alright, So I got my 08 awhile ago and the owner had said he used Maxima 530MX Full Synthetic Ester formula for both tranny/engine oil. I had heard before its not good to change oils being run in the bike, but at $16.99 a bottle, and needing two bottles per oil change I can't afford it anymore. Is there a more reasonably priced Full Synthetic Easter Based Oil I can use in both tranny/engine that won't burn a hole in my wallet? And yes, I've used the search button and read other the numerous other oil threads but I'd like to get one up to date and specific to my case. Any insight/suggestions/recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, -Ryan

    Older Year Graphics on 08 CRF250?

    Alot of the graphics I liked were for like 06-07s so I wanted to be sure they'd fit.

    Older Year Graphics on 08 CRF250?

    I'm sure this has been answered many times, but my search came up empty. Will older year graphics, (05-07) fit on my 2008 plastics? I already have Front number plate, and side number panels done. I need to know about the: -Front fender -Fork guards -Radiator Shrouds -Seat -Swingarm -Rear Fender -Airbox Decals I'm pretty sure they fit, because on a few other posts for like 07's I've seen it seemed like they do, but I just want to be 100% sure before I buy them. Thanks in advance.

    Decided it was time to upgrade my old 05 CRF250R to an 08. Only had to pay $600 more for the upgrade. Will be trying the bike out at the track this Sunday. I think I'm in love...
  12. You should probably brag some more, it's not annoying at all.
  13. Good finally done! Looks great. Now I need that new bike so we can ride...
