    Need Parts for a 1982 KLX 250

    I might be interested in selling everything. I have quite a few spares for it too. There is the bike itself (which I have decided is a 1980 model) that is complete but the motor is out of it at the moment. I also have 3 extra motors all in need of pistons, two with spun cam bearings but all of them have good bottom ends and tranny's. (Two of them are from a KLT 3 wheeler) and an extra set of wheels that are off of a KL model. If someone is interested in buying everything then I would part with it.

    Need 1982 KLX Help!

    I was given what I was told was a 1982 KLX 250 but I am having trouble finding any record of a KLX 250 in that year. I am a former Hare Scramble rider that has been off of the dirt for 10 years now. I have still been riding but only on the street since that time. I am looking into getting back into riding dirt and Hare Scrambles and have every intention of buying a late model KLX 300 this spring at some point. In the meantime a friend of mine gave me this 1982 KLX just to play around with. Problem being is that it is in dire need of a piston and bore job because it smokes like a freight train. I cannot find a listing through any of the aftermarket companies for piston kits for this bike. I know that this was the same motor that Kawasaki put in the KL and the KLT but I am having no luck there either. Bike Bandit lists an oversized piston is still available from Kawasaki so I might be able to go that route assuming that one can be found. Do any of you know of a good source for parts for some of these older bikes or am I just SOL? I am also need of some non-motor items for it so if any one knows of a good source, new or used, let me know. I'm really not interested in spending a bunch of money or time on this bike seeing as how I plan to replace it next spring. It would be nice to have something to play around on until then and possibly have a "spare" dirt bike around for others to ride. Also, is there a internet based VIN search that anyone knows about so I can verify the year of this bike? Thanks
