My $250 KX250 1986 - E2S
Just picked up like 3 hours ago a 1986 KX250 for $300
Front tire is dry rotted. (Had to put this first cause I only have one good front)
Does not run.
Mikuni VM round carb.
Don't see coolant. Where did it go? The seller didn't have an answer.
Lot of oil under engine. Shift shaft seal leaky? Most of it is red filter oil?
Rust in a lot of places
Seat mounting tab on frame has been spot welded.
Rear brakes pads almost gone
Cylinder has a lot of vertical scratches and unknown bore.
Gas looks brown.
Someone painted the carb boot and it is flaking.
Pipe has dents.
No case saver.
Loose shifter (maybe tighten it?)
Should have tried to offer $250
Cylinder is sleeved and has compression.
Front forks not rusted. No leaks. Feel good.
Rear shock good and not looking stock with no leaks.
Shifts in all gears and turns the crankshaft.
Oil is clean (new?)
Clutch basket is not grooved.
Pro Circuit Pipe / DG Silencer
Plastics and tank
Rims / rear tire
Chain / sprockets ok.
Frame/ triples / bars / swingarm
Air box carb boot (I have three bad ones)
Nut and bolt heads not all rounded and stripped.
Pretty much complete.
