Thanks fellas, it was awesome being back on the track. I've got a lot to improve though, probably the main one being my fitness so i can do the bike justice. Still, to come in 8th out of 20+ riders on my first race in a decade wasn't too bad. There were

Thats a great match for 93/94, but in 95 they changed the colour. Here an original 95 swingarm.

I bought the 95kx250 first with the intent of keeping it. Did a lot of work on it and had almost finished it when i found the 97 kx250 on ebay. The 97mdl still had the original chain and sprockets, so i knew it was a low hour bike. Well i was right, ... more »

Filed and mounted the magnesium PC covers.........nice bit of bling. I re-valved the suspension to 2001 specs as the 97 specs were definitely on the soft side. Will take it out this weekend to see how she rides.

Great work Ryan, keep the pics coming. Ive got a 95 kit too that i will run on my 250 shortly. i think i might need to get the gold rims like yours though, to give it that mid 90's feel.
