Sorry, i am a non native english speaker so it probalby wasnt really clear what i wanted to ask. I was referring to mxb2's post, and would like to know why he would take the 18 250 sxf "all day long" over a 16. To me it seems like the small improvements ... more »

Could you elaborate why?

Around 1500 $

Thanks, that was perfect

One more question: is it worth buying a 2018 250sxf over a leftover 16? Are the small refinements worth the extra $? (In europe the 2016 already had airforks)

Well, I rode kawis for the last 3 years, and i always liked the feel of the kawi. It is a bike that is very easy to throw around, in the air as well as into corners (since the new chassis) and still feels very stable. I already put 110 hours on my 17 ... more »

I am currently in the process of rebuilding a buddys kx250f that he drowned in a pond

Quite a bit of sand got sucked into the combustion chamber, but it obviously immediately died as it went under water. Looks like nothing was damaged, piston, ... more »

Went from a 17 kx250f to a cheap used 12 yz 250 just a couple weeks ago. I set the sag, put a new piston and fresh tires on and did not do anything else since 15 hours (except regular maintenance of course). This thing is so much fun, awesome sound, ... more »

Have had a 16 450 and a 17 250. On the 450 the piston looked very good after 80 hours, valves still in spec. On the 250 i waited till 70 hours to change the piston and it still looked o.k., valves still within spec too! I am also not really slow and ... more »

Same here. Never really liked the look of the newer 4 stroke yamahas, but i actually like this one. Also, they are the only manufacturer to offer two different color schemes for their bikes. I think more manufacturers should do that.

Added reply in a thread My 2017 Alta Redshift MX... 6/6/2017 10:37 AM

One thing i was always curious about: When you "rev" the alta in the air, wouldnt the gyro effect be huge and make you do like a "half" backflip? I mean it would be like if you shifted up to 5th in the air and held it wide open

Of course this ... more »

There is a dirt wall about halfway around the track, from there you can see almost all of the track. Pretty awesome for watching!

Got one, very good bike. Only the stock plastics break very easily, especially around the radiator area. Other than that no complaints so far

Went from a 15 kx250f to the '16 kx450f. To my surprise, It does not really feel any heavier than the 250, neither off the track nor on the track. Took a while to get adjusted to the power but now i really like it. I added about 15cc of oil to the left ... more »

Rode my 450 for the first time yesterday. I was running the stock recommended pressure in the fork, and i did not like it. The track was pretty rough and it was my first ride back after an injury so i was not at 100%, but i hated the forks. They felt ... more »
