    Rm 125 a good bike for me?

    you might be able to pick up a used bike for quite a bit cheaper than that. but the rm is a good bike and it really depends on if you think 125cc is big enough. for your riding experience though it should be a good bike.

    2004 Rmz 250

    I have a 2005 rmz 250 and have checked into the top end for my bike. a cheap top end kit goes for about $130-150 depending on what kind you want it may come with gaskets. i was looking on ebay the other day and found a new high compression piston w/out pins etc. for $80. it does depend on what has been done to the bike and the way its been ridden. for my bike, i bought it used, i needed to adjust the valves and just scrapped the carbon off the piston. the real upset i had w/ my bike is i had to replace the cases because of major cracks on the inside and outside of the motor. Kawasaki and suzuki would not help me out at all which made me very mad. i called their customer service line but the people who answer are the most stupid people who i have ever talked on the phone with. But to the point, the rmz makes decent power and you can tune the suspension a little. for me though ive had enough of this bike and am going to buy a 250 two stroke. if you do go look at this bike, look at the cases behind the kickstarter and neer the clutch cover for cracks, this is an expensive fix. best of luck to you, and the rmz.-------ETHAN

    2007 Rmz250

    i think that if suzuki did this to their rmz 250 and made it light enough it would be a big hit. But if they make the e-button and dont do anything about the suspension and that steel handlebar i will not be happy. but with all of these improvements then i'm all for it. ------ethan

  6. I want to make the change from a 250 fourstroke to a 250 two-stroke. i would like to buy a 2004 or 2005 kx 250 with maybe an aftermarket pipe and possibly suspension. what is a good price for a good bike. -----ETHAN

    plug fouling problem

    I used to have a 1996 yamaha yz 125 and it fouled plugs like crazy. when i first bought it the pre-mix ratio was 32-1 and this was a little too rich for my nbike. i then went to the mixture of 40-1 because i like to ride hare-scrambles and motocross. this ratio really helped, along with keeping the motor wrapped out. ------ETHAN

    No recoil in kickstarter. rmz250

    I have a 2005 Rmz 250 and recently swapped the cases. i had it all put back together and tried to kick it over but the kichstarter has no re-coil and the kickstarter would roll forward. So i took it all apart again and the spring wasnt wound the whole way around. i put it all back together after checking the kickstarter unit to my manual but couldnt find anything wrong with it. i tried kicking it over again and still no recoil, the good thing is that it doesnt roll forward anymore. if you have any suggestions like the spring isnt wound tight enough, please tell me. Thank you.
