Someone in Atlanta stuffed a WR500 motor in a modern aluminum framed YZ250 a few years ago. Bike was sick.

Silver rims all the way. But I wish they'd included anodized red hubs on the stock bike. Though Coldenhoff's MXGP bike still has the silver hubs.

no shit. but does he ride woods every week on a 450? just seems like a lot of extra weight and crank/wheel inertia.

I'd also be interested to know if he was shoehorned into riding the 450

Nice pics, though I'm still on the hunt for a good used pipe for a 1987 KX250.

I restored my 2007 KX250 and spent over $5,000 doing so. Also restored a 1989 KX125 again spending a small fortune. My 87 250 is not getting the same treatment LOL. Also just discovered the PO managed to crack one of the sprocket ears on the hub. Working ... more »

what are you looking for on the PC pipe? do you have a tank in good/very good condition?

Added reply in a thread WTB pipe for 1987 Kawasaki KX250 7/12/2020 6:16 AM

holy shit a NOS pipe. $450 is probably a bit rich for this project - I'm not doing a full on resto, just getting it in good condition for vintage racing then sell to someone who may want to restore it proper.

Started new thread Tips for installing dust seal in brake caliper? 7/11/2020 6:50 PM

Is there a trick to getting the caliper dust seal installed in a tiny MX bike caliper? I've fought with my 87 KX250 caliper seal for 30 minutes now. I've tried installing the seal over the piston first, but then the outer lip has no way of sliding into ... more »

YES YES YES!!
Ping there are plenty of factory 2 stokes in vital forum, what do you mean there aren’t factory 2 strokes anymore? Just because us average joes aren’t handed free parts doesn’t mean we aren’t building bitchin bikes.

KX motocross bikes USED to come with a sidestand and 18" rear wheel right on the showroom floor.
