One in the bazaar for a nice $12k. Such nice bikes but so damn expensive, whether it’s an AF or steelie. Engines alone are always over $4k and no one makes them anymore.

Love the build! Bike looks great! Did you buy new OEM cover or have to prep them before cerokote aside from cleaning? I bought an 04 about a month ago and plan on going through it and cleaning it up this winter. Suspension seals leak from old age and ... more »

Seems like the engines alone go for a few grand. I see AFs posted around me for $8k+, and steelies being $5K+. Bike market is crazy right now.

What makes the shifter “works”? May be interested.

Have you tried searching for just the shock body or asking whoever rebuilds KYB how much one is? Should be a part number somewhere you can search.

Have you seen if someone who does KYB susp. Could give you a quote to rebuild it?

Throw an hour meter on, and if you really want to, 2 in the event the first one shits the bed and you’re left without a correct reading.

Yeah I’m in the same boat as you lol. I just bought an 04 RM250 and it’s confusing as hell compared to the YZ I used to own.

Front will, not sure about the shock. You’d probably need the linkage if it fits at all. You should look for 04+ rear shock as they changed to Showa and are supposed to be better.

Is the shifter aluminum? Fits an 04 as well I would assume?

There has to be one coming to the MX bikes soon right? The RMX450 has one, how hard is it to swap to the Z? I just bought an RM250, but if I was in the market for a new bike, I would probably buy an RMZ250, and definitely would if they have an e-start. ... more »

New engine in 99, so more than likely different engine and exhaust mounts.

No spray adhesive, you’ll ruin the foam. I prefer starting at the front and MAKE SURE YOU HAVE IT CENTERED! If you mess up the first time, you should be able to have another go at it if you don’t mangle the cover pulling the staples out. You’ll also ... more »

Suzuki is now teaming up with Mazda to make a ridiculously unreliable rotary-powered dirtbike. It DNFs nearly every race after pulling the holeshot every time.

You may lose a lot of the ability to twist, so a thumb throttle may be necessary.
