hey guys, just testing the waters here... not sure if im going to sell yet (possibly switch to a 4stroke). Its a MINT 2005 kx250, has protaper black anadized triple clamps and tag bars with tag grips and a brand new top end thats not even broken in yet, I did the 10 and 20 min. rides but still needs the 30min one to finish break-in. The bike has 20 hours tops and I ran amsoil dominator in it and amsoil synthetic tranny oil (changed every 3 rides). Wasn't raced, mostly trail ridden (been to the track a couple times to ride around). Its in New York on long island in northport, 4k cash gets it. Thanks for looking ;) Give me an e-mail address to send pics to if interested, won't let me upload them:mad:

Same year and model as mine.

Do yourself a favour and keep it...them 4 stroke pure dirt bikes are junk.

Curious what happened that you had to rebuild the top end at just 20 hours?

Maybe borrow a pals four stroker for a few hours of riding, and then decide.
Also they constantly need valves set, and top end overhauls are frequent items and very expensive and time consuming compared to a 2 stroke.
But mostly they are gutless wonders.
I race mine and i can beat all the 450's no problem.

yea im not sure if I want to sell, just seeing if anyone is interested. I love this bike, as for the top end my friend has the same bike and his piston skirt shattered at around 30 or 40 hours so I just wanted to be safe. Its very cheap insurance lol I heard that the 4 strokes are easier to ride and felt like trying it out but thats not definately what im going for here, at the moment it will pay for my car insurance and then the money over the winter will buy me another bike in the spring.
