Hey guys. Making my come back at 46!! My parents bought me a leftover 84 kx 80 when I was 13. My first race was May 87, at Claverack in NY. MSC District 34. I did a handful of senior mini races that summer/fall, then moved to 125 in 88. Went through 88- 93 racing novice and amateur. In October of 93 I turned expert, that didn't seem possible back in 87 or in 84 5 6 when I was just watching at Andres Farm. I signed up for Budds, Southwick and Unadilla in 94. Missed the motos at Budds and Southwick and snapped my wrist at Unadilla in final constellation race. And that was it. Now married and 5 kids later I couldn't ignore the itch I've had since I was 5 years old. That dude with the reindeer brought a 18 KLX 110L to our boys surprise this past Christmas. Last Friday I picked a brand new rmz250. So excited!! My first vital question.. what's the deal with the screen on the filter cage? Thanks for reading.

No toil,twin air make kits, or buy a rm 250 screen less air filter cage. Helps the bike breathe a lil better. A slip on and remap woud be better with good fuel.

The RMZ 250 is a great bike! Keep the head pipe clean, or buy an after market pipe. The wall thickness of the stock pipe is paper thin. Other than that those bike are solid, it'll turn great, and have more than enough power!

Thanks guys, I'll look into the Twin air cage. Only have 30 mins on the hour meter I put on. Still breaking her in. OTD for 6160, it was a no brainer.

Thanks, just listened. I'll try the suspension settings first and leave the engine stock for now. Just getting back into the game.

If your not chasing power leave the screen in there. It's a back fire flame arrest that supposedly prevents the foam air filter that's soaked in oil that contains an evaporating thinning agent like alcohol from catching fire. Never heard of it happening but it is cheap insurance. It also can catch larger particles from entering your engine if you haven't installed from foam correctly. I've seen all sorts of stuff ups working on motorcycles for a living so this isn't out of the realms of some peoples mechanical skills and mishaps. Especially those that like to drink a beer or ten as they work on their bikes.

A dealership in Southern California is advertising 18' RMZ-250's for $3999!!
If this is legitimate, should I make the seven hour drive from Nor.Ca.? Thats awfully cheap for a brand new bike for my son.

You can simply cut the screen out.
