My friend owns River Valley. He searched for property with the best dirt for almost 10 years before he found good dirt, with ample water, in the right location. Needless to say, you'll be hard pressed to find any track in California with better dirt. ... more »

Added reply in a thread KX250 -82, what to look for? 9/24/2016 8:01 PM

I raced one in '82. I quit racing for 6 months because of that bike. There is good reason why you very rarely see them at the vintage races. Sorry if that hurts anybody's feelings.

Comparing dyno numbers from different dynos is a mistake. The dyno can be setup to read higher numbers such as using STD vs SAE net correction factors. That alone can be a 4hp difference. There are also many other variables that make it a futile exercise. ... more »

Parts are very scarce. The '82 was not a great bike, even when it was new.

That's actually a gouge job for readily available parts. It's a OEM 1989 case cover, which is still available from Honda. Honda East Toledo sells them for $162. Boyeson clutch covers run about $80.

I had a new 1984 RM250 stolen at Mosier Valley. Some guy hopped on it between motos and rode off into the sunset. A big padlock in the rear sprocket will stop the lone wolf thieves like that. I use one for overnight camping and at restaurants.

Never underestimate how much money a motivated collector will throw at something like that.

ProX pistons are OEM pistons in a ProX box. With ProX, their A size is OEM standard bore. That being said, you can pick up a piston kit for $64 shipped. I recommend OEM gaskets and seals. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pro-X-Racing-Parts-01-3224-A-Piston-Kit-for-2004-11-Suzuki-RM125-53-95mm-/162181735171?_trksid=p2141725.m3641.l6368 ... more »

Cleaning air filters. I don't even do it anymore. I just throw them away after about 6-8 hours of riding.

My family owned a drive-in theater when it came out and I think I saw it every night for two weeks in 1972. My brother and I had already been badgering my parents for dirt bikes before that, but the movie sealed the deal and our dad finally caved in ... more »

10 out of the 34 classes are already sold out. Looks like they are on their way to a big turnout.

Looks like it was left outside near the beach. My guess is 50-100 hours. Find someone that does vapor blasting if you want to make it look good again.

Yes, I put it on the dyno a few weeks ago and have run 4 gallons of gas on the track. It really works great, and the top end power gains are amazing. I've never seen a simple bolt-on part perform this well. Here's my dyno results. Green line is stock

I wouldn't think twice about converting to a short body 38mm PWK air striker. I'd highly recommend installing a KPR Metering block while you are at it. The metering block made more power everywhere on the dyno curve and added 3-5hp at peak on my YZ carb ... more »
