Finally diving into this 2007 KX250 I bought. Picked it up for $1,500. Definitely needs some loving!! I have to say, finding parts for this thing is a 🤬. I’m looking for a Hinson clutch kit specifically but doesn’t seem like they make the fiber/steel plate and spring kit anymore for it. Anyone know?? Here are a few pics of the bike for tear down. Started a YouTube page for it too where I‘ll be posting a bunch of videos on the build! Check it out!

My plan is to go for a 2001 RC theme for the bike. Let me know some ideas if you have any!

Can you sign up to work overtime at your work...this looks expensive

Haha I wouldn't say it's going to break the bank but definitely not over the top. Doing the work myself saves a ton of dough as well as being selective with the parts I use. Its going to be about what a new two stroke would cost back in the day. I'll take a customized "new" bike for that price rather than a stocker at that price for sure.

Dude, beat or not finding a final year model for ANY of the japanese 2 strokes for $1500 is a fucking score.

If it can't be fixed with a hammer, it's an electrical problem.

I was pumped to find a 2007! The ad didn't even have pictures or a price. It just said "Make an offer". After getting some pictures of it, I offered the $1,500 and they took it. I probably could have offered less!

Bike was definitely "sent" during it's life. Looking forward to you breathing new life into it. Nice find.

Wow dude, pretty sure you're right on the stock chain and sprockets. Didn't even think to notice until you pointed that out. Believe it or not it still has the OEM Bridgestone front tire on it too. Granted there are like zero knobbies on it since they've all chunked off, but still. Good news for the amount of hours on it, but yes, a little neglected in most areas ha!

Bridgestone M 401 is also OEM for the front tire. I could see Bridgestone but no numbers

The M401 it is. Nothing like some 13 year old rubber

New video is up on my build! I put the Pryme MX cleaning pads to the test and see how well they work. I would highly recommend them if you want to shine up your dingy looking parts! www.prymemx.com

I also had some pretty damn good dings, nicks, and deep scratches in the swing arm and these pads took them right out. Super smooth now.
