Thats an awesome find mate.......well done on getting it back to its former glory. Great low hour example. I found a pretty good one too, not as good as that but not too bad at all.

Peatz12 you should give your pipe a little bit more shine and then blue the welds with a blow torch. ....will finish the pipe nicely. Heres my yz pipe...it was covered in surface rust but came up great.

Great bikes fellas....I think the stock 96 look is pretty good as it is. Personally i like the older splitfire looks like the 94 kit. The purple screams 90's. Ive got a 94 kx125 but I'll be doing a 95 kit for the ease and cheaper expense of the parts.

Steph500 the forks are original 89's......im just using the 91 guards as i couldn't stand getting them damaged. ....the purists won't like it but its hard to find a pair of good forks these days.

Looking great mate.....they're an awesome bike. Tip: I advanced my timing and it really woke it up. Its snappy from top to bottom.

Haha, yeah everybody says that!

The forks are actually at a flush height with the stock clamps, but this old school Answer clamp is higher for some strange reason. I dont think the cr's needed to turn any sharper! Got it working really well ... more »

Hey Schwanz22, Hows your 93 going? That sticker kit and seat cover is from Evo-mx.com, a top quality product. Thats the HRC graphics from back in 93/94, just clean and simple. Racing it for the first time this weekend, cant wait!

Haha. .....well im not sponsored by HRC and I don't smoke either. ......guess the whole things a

Reply to Not another CR! 5/11/2015 6:59 PM

Details. ...... Had to build it from a few bikes as its hard to find a good unmolested cr these days. I found a 93 import, a 92 model and a 94 chassis. I decided to go with the 94 chassis as i want to minimize the dreaded cr headshake. And i had the ... more »

Yeah i agree. .silver rims would look better but there's no money for another set unfortunately. Got a basketcase 89 yz250 to do next. I thought about de-plating the pipe but haven't tried it yet. Yes Frank at Evo-Mx is making this graphics and seat ... more »

Thanks guys, im pretty happy with it to say the least. Yes Peatz12, send Frank a pic of my bike to let him know which kit you want as its not advertised on their website yet.

Reply to 1997 KX250 Restoration - UPDATED 5/9/2015 6:49 PM

Ok, finally got the 97 Factory look sorted. Im pumped about it, always loved the purple craze of the mid 90's. As always, Frank from Evo-Mx does an awesome job on his graphics and seat kits, top quality stuff.

Reply to 97 kx250 pipe suggestion 3/15/2015 4:29 AM

I ran the PC pipe last year, never ran the stock pipe so I cant compare it to that. It seemed to have enough top end though, but the 97 KX's were always low - mid engines. A lot of people say that the PC pipes just move the power up in the rev range. ... more »
