    Its a ok commuter bike that works pretty well in the desert. It get great fuel economy although it lacks power. I've got a full yosi exhaust and been jetted (Dynojet kit) but its still a little light on the power. Nonetheless, for me its a nice bike to commute with and take off road to the desert for some good fun. After some serious messing around with the jetting/needle, got the power numbers up a bit to do some modest off-roading. Still gets better than 60 mpg, which for surface street commuting is easy at the pump.

  5. This is my first post on this site so im not sure im doing this right but... I have a 2012 klx 250s and its mods that make a difference to my problem are Fmf powerbomb header, dgr slip on, dynojet kit 2, and the smog thing and the snorkel ( not the lid just the snorkel ) have been removed, and the crankcase vent has been opened up. I recently just did all these mods and tightened the cam chain ( it was slapping around inside) and it ran beautifully for a few rides. I road it hard and long through trails all day yesterday and it did fine. I hit the one last trail on the way home and got stuck in some brackish water id say it was def more fresh water than salt tho. I was riding thru sand all day too. So while i was stuck it kept dying, prolly getting water in the air box, and it got so stuck that i drained the battery from trying to start it so much. I finally pull the bike out and try to pop the clutch and fail then i hook it up to this dudes truck battery to jump my bike. It would not start til i laid the bike over to the left and kept feathering the throttle. It ran bad for awhile but i just let it run for like 20 mins while i changed clothes and got my gear. Then it was time to go and it road and pulled hard for the entire highway 20 mile ride home. Today i change the oil and put 2 oz's of pj1 carb cleaner in the gas tank. I ride it to work and it only barely ran odd for a second so i didnt think it was anything. Get to work the bike sits for like 4 hours and then i hop on for my lunch break and i hit up this basic no water no nothing of a trail and it pulls hard as normal then get back on the road and it runs like crap all of a sudden, and it bogs down the second you try to give it like 15% of throttle and since my battery had died the other day i didnt know how much gas it had in it so i figured it was just time to switch it over to the RESERVE tank.You know how the bike gets when its running out of gas and you just click it over to the RESERVE thats how it felt almost.Nope that def wasnt the problem, it ran like garbage all the way back to my work and i even had to ride with the choke on and barely giving it any gas at all just to try to get it going any faster at all, i mean it was really turtling up to granny speed. I get back to work and think theres water in the motor, in the past i was told if you get water in the airbox then it goes in the motor DUH if you pull the spark plug and lay the bike down on the left and hit the starter it will spray any water out. In the past even from day one this trick has saved my ass many times. So i do this and it doesnt make it any better so i ride home at turtle granny speed style with the choke on. I get home, research the possibilities , everyone is saying the carb vent is blocked with mud or the the carb needs to be cleaned out. I check the vent and hose, there was some scattered grains of sand in the hose, i clean the hose and the vent. Then i pull the carb off and clean that with carb cleaner. Put the diafram in wrong the first time cuz the needle wasnt smooth and do it again and the needle was sucking back out perfect just like when i put in the jet kit. Put the carb back on and take it for a spin, it pulls pretty good almost perfect right off the bat but then once again after a 1/2 mile i pin the throttle back trying to feel the torque pick the front end up and it bogs the motor down hard like it did before. I AM OUT OF IDEA'S, AND I AM IN DESPERATE NEED OF ADVICE. please help me. Sorry its so long.

    I like the bike. It's no Beta or KTM, but it get's the job done just fine, and it's very reliable.

  12. G'day folks, I've been lurking these forums for a while and have decided to make a thread to help my decision making process. After doing a lot of reading, I've narrowed my selection down to 3 bikes that roughly fit the criteria. Requirements/what I'll be doing with the bike -LAMS (learner approved scheme in Australia) -Mostly casual daily road-commuting -Weekend day trips to bush to check out fire trails and ride light off-road -Holiday inter-state/cross-country trips -Looking for something that is beginner friendly, and most importantly, robust, durable and generally free from technical issues. -Have a friend who's on an XT250 (and going interstate/australia wide tour with it) so something that can match/stay in range with that would be best I'm looking to buy 2nd hand as generally the brand new bikes are out of my price-range (with the exception of CRF250L) So, the bikes are -Yamaha WR250R -Honda CRF250L -Suzuki DRZ400E After doing some reading about the different bikes, it's come up that the Honda has a problematic frame susceptible to bending. (If any CRF250L owners could chime in here, would appreciate it). From what I understand the Yamaha beats the Honda in almost every category, and when buying 2nd hand a lot of cheaper 250Rs are available contrasted with the relatively new CRF250L. Questions for TT members What are the general comments on these 3 bikes and how do they stack up against each other considering what I'm going to be using the bike for? I have a couple of these bikes lined up, and will be going out to have a look at them, would TT members be able to tell me what things I need to look for/inspect when visiting the bikes, and any bike-specific problems that each one of these bikes have? As I have absolutely zero clue what to look for and what to keep an eye out for when examining a used/2nd hand bike. I will be paying a bike inspector prior to when I do purchase the bike so I can be assured I'm not buying a lemon, but I'd like to know what to look for beforehand as well on a preliminary inspection. Cheers, Bridgeburner

    reliable!
  14. Looking for the right street legal dirt bike for my 51 year old mother to ride and to learn some off-road and road riding techniques has proven more difficult than I anticipated. All the bikes I've looked at that spec out with 'confidence inspiring' seat heights weigh close to or well over 300lbs. The only 'lightweight' that I've found is more play-bike than d/s, the Beta 125rr-s and it looks pretty tall for an average/short girl to learn on. The Suzuki DR200s comes to mind as a candidate but is kind of archaic like most the rest of the Japanese dual sport offerings in the US. Key factors in my search are: +low to moderate seat height or the ability to lower the chassis a few inches to allow a 5'3" 140lb female to control comfortably at the stoplight or on the trail. +decent build quality +compliant handling +parts availability +electric start +lightweight or low center of gravity at least +inexpensive (under $5000) +street legal from the factory but really more of a dirt bike than a scrambler or adv bike i think +preferably wide ratio 6-speed Thanks for reading and hopefully aiding in a new addition to the bike life! Peace
  15. Hey all. I'm a pretty big trail noob. Looking at a xr250 for a trail bike. Have ridden one in the past, and quite enjoyed it. Went well for my height and weight, and wasn't on any really fast trails so it did the job nicely. Mostly though, the thing that is drawing me back to it is how tough they are. Anybody got any opinions on a better bike in regards to how much abuse they can take? Really not keen on doing rebuilds every 25 hours as Honda recommend for the CRF250 and other new bikes may require, which is why I'm drawn to the xr. All of my offroad experience is on a KLX250 '07 or a XR250 '99. Preferred the XR, felt it was more nimble and fit my riding style better. Wasn't a particular fan of the klx posture, and don't feel that I'm after that bit of extra power for all the extra maintenance that some off road bikes require. What's a decent middle ground? What are my options?

    First 4 stroke. Last dirt bike was a Kx250 2-stroke. <br />Very predictable and stable. Clearly needs some refinements (wHitch are well outlined by the folks here ) but a fun bike
