    '96 RMX/RM 250 compression

    I bought the bike used a while back so I don't know. The bike seems to run quite well. I can almost beat my friend in a drag race and he has '94 KTM 300. I do foul plugs quite quickly. Perhaps due to low compression/incomplete combustion??

    '96 RMX/RM 250 compression

    I cannot find a compression spec for the RMX 250 anywhere. Does anyone know it? I have an RMX w/ the RM head gasket. The compression is right around 90PSI after three kicks. That seems low but I am not used to two strokes. Thanks in advance. -Mike '96 Suzuki RMX 250 '98 Kawasaki KLR 650 '05 Mazda M3 - for snow storms (yes, I have Blizzaks)

    bad cdi on KLR 650. what else to test???

    I ran all the tests per my Clymber manual. Everything tested good on my multimeter except SEVERAL resistance measurements on the CDI.
  4. I need to replace the cdi on my '98 KLR 650 with 22K. It seems like this is uncommon. Is there anything else that could be wrong with my bike (bad voltage reg., etc) that could have caused this? Or am I just unlucky? -Mike

    RM 250 is it good for me.

    My what fine grammar you have for an 11 year old! If you reallly are 11, you must be homeschooled. All the more reason to not buy a RM250. You will hurt yourself and perhaps even damage your brain.

    How can I make my 00 RM250 into a woods Monster

    You could follow what others have said or you could follow these steps: 1) Sell RM250 2) Buy RMX250, KDX200/220/250, XR250/400, WR250/400 or KTM 200/250/300 EXC Personally, I went for the RMX250 for low weight and plenty of power. -Mike

    Bext radiator guards for '96 RMX 250

    I picked up a clean RMX a few weeks ago. Before I do anything serious, I'd like to get a set of radiator guards. What is the best kind for my new-to-me bike.

    RMX 250 vs. KDX 200

    What are the major differences? I know the 250 has more power and weighs a little more. Has anyone owned/ridden both? Is the RMX a decent trail bike? I people have loyalties and biases so I am also going ot post on the Kawasaki 2-stroke page. Thanks in advance.
