I'm about to pick up a pretty clapped out 1997 kx250. The bike has definitely seen better days and needs a lot of work. Two reasons I'm willing to pick it up, 1.) it started right up on the 2nd kick without choke. 2.) I'm picking up a running bike for $350.

Looking to source some items for the bike. Let me know what you have and I'll update the thread as I get the bike tuesday and get her up and going.

Was curious if anyone on here has any flo green plastics and or purple shrouds? Really wanting to do semi retro with the plastics and graphics, with a hint of newer style

Jeff Emig’s dad can make you some triple clamps for that bike. Ain’t cheap though.

Purple shrouds were tough I paid well over $100 for mine

I know. I found a set of NOS Blue shrouds, but can't decide what I want. Going to get it cleaned and snap pics this weekend, I've been busy with work

Well did some things to the bike this weekend. That two stroke exhaust spooge IS A B**** to get off of anything.
Right side axle adjuster is actually a spacer for a hitch on a pickup.
Found out the bike has Boyesen Power Reeds
Excel Takasago 18" Rear Wheel
Answer Oversized Bars
Aftermarket Footpegs That Are Wider
No Idea on the silencer
Fmf Fatty with some decent size dents
Swingarm bolt? Is it supposed to be like that, just the shape of the head makes me think axle, but this is my first build
I have a trailtech vapor from a 2001 wr426f, would this possibly fit on my kx250 with a different wiring setup?
Build will be going slowly, I am still in highschool and have bills. Have to pay car payment, insurance, internet bill, and pay off this dirt bike, which I am buying from a friend.

Might be trading the local mx shop my 2001 wr426 that blew up 4 weeks ago, for some work on the kx. Most likely all bearings, top end, carb work, plastics, axle adjuster
