    Should I pull the trigger on a 2012 TE250?

    I'm very very happy with my 12', too There is also another difference between them : the 13' has the sub frame in plastic instead of aluminum

    TE 250 vs KTM 300

    First ride last Sunday => Amazingly fast in long sandy sweeps, but also very very tractable in technical single track in a XC course, close to Sao Paulo City Loved it, exactly as written a recent Dirt Rider, which I quote => "eight-time National Enduro champ Mike Lafferty has found a second childhood aboard the Husaberg 250 two-stroke ..." Cheers !!!!!!!!!

    TE 250 vs KTM 300

    Congrats, borlo, I also ended up getting the TE250; I was considering either a KTM 250XC or a 250 XC-W but decided on the 'berg because of import complications here in Brazil; hopefully will ride this weekend and will post some comments Cheers from Sao Paulo City !!!

    09 kx 250f woods setup

    I also put hand guards on mine, besides changing to 14/47 sprockets (the tallest I could find) And a sidestand is very,very useful while you are trail riding Great bike indeed, it would be the BEST ever for me if it had electric start Cheers !!

    Need Starting Tips

    A suggestion: a soft kick all the way, until you feel the piston is at TDC, then a vigorous kick and it starts 90% of the time !!! Cheers

    Service manual download

    Another cheap suggestion: look for it at ebay.com and you will find it for as low as US$5.00. Confirm the year of motorcycle since there are two VERY different KLX250s (1979 and 1994)

    I stole a KLX

    Funny, you guys !!! Here in Brazil, a 2002 KLX 300 is selling for about US$6,500 That´s "steal" in other sense . . .
