Everyone loves putting in their input here, so i will listen to all sides here!

2013 KX250f
Everything apart from cams, transmission and crank is ruined. The nightmare of owning 4 strokes right??

Looking at $3000-4000 AUD in repairs...
Second hand 2 strokes start at $2500
Second hand 450s (40ish hours) start at around $5000
Wouldn't buy a 2nd hand 250f again before we go there!

What would you do??

How's the rest of the bike?

If it's all good, you might want to consider putting a 2t engine in it. It's harder to find just a 250 2t engine in OZ than the US, but you never know what you might find, until you try.

The rest of the bike is great! Who would you trust to do the kind of work over here? Motorsport is massive in Perth. Do you think I could have a fab shop with a back ground in motorsport do the job perhaps??

Try to find a 250 2 stroke engine and do a AF build?

Your post is a bit confusing.."Everything" meaning everything in the engine is ruined? Except the cam, crankshaft and transmission? So the cases, cylinder and head are bad?

$3000-$4000 in just engine repairs? Or for the whole planned rebuild?

Part it out? If you were in the states, I'd buy the forks off of you.

Ditch it
Buy 2 stroke
Rebuild 2 stroke for 1/3 of the price
Mix gas at 40:1
Haul ass
Drop every ladies panties within a 32km radius
Leave the track with a huge smile every time

Put a KX500 motor engine in it and be very happy with it.

Buy the parts and do it yourself. The more specialized things you can have a shop do, but I’d say 85% of the work could be done by you. Best of luck whichever direction you choose.
