Looking for a pipe for a 1987 KX250. This was a one-year-only pipe design so 86 & 88 won't fit to the best of my knowledge.

DG used to sell pipes for it but they only have silencers listed today.

Anyone happen to have a pipe in decent condition laying around?

So are there even any boutique pipe builders who may have a 87 kX250 pipe available?

Try dyno port see if they will make you one the oldest they went was 88 on the catalog online.

Was only able to find that DG and DEP made silencers for it. Even searched messico and jolly moto and they had nothing. Jemco maybe also.

Pretty sure the 85' through 87' engines were a shared design, but the frame changed in 87'. Looking at pictures of the 3 years, the exhaust pipes all look pretty close in shape. Unfortunately, I don't see any aftermarket companies selling new ones of any of those years, but maybe if you found one in good shape somewhere from an 85' or 86' that it could be made to work with a little modification.

Rich from Dynoport said that he doesn't have a template and would need the bike.
