I am thinking of buying a KX 250F. Its a 2005 with a Brand New Top End Professionally Done. I was wondering if any of you guys have an 05? It was the First year Kawasaki and Suzuki Paired Up With each other. I heard the suspension was trash, other than that things looked okay. I was wondering what you guys options were on the suspension. What about the starting, is it Extremely Hard 2 Start? When i Hoped on the Bike, It Started 5th Kick Cold. I Thought that was Pretty Good for a 4 Stroke. I am a 2 Stroke Guy sooo, Yeah. Let me know The Pros and Cons. Thanks in advanced.

A used 250F? Bad choice. There is a reason Pro-Circuit started making their own valves for those, and radiators. Used 450 maybe, but a used 250F, no way.

My brother just sold his 05 this fall and bought it used in 07. We did the usual maintenance and had absolutely no problem with it. I wouldn't say its a bad choice as long as you know how to take care of your bike.

I bought a used '05 rmz-250 for $700 that was in rough shape. I had the top end and suspension rebuilt and it's been one of my favorite bikes since. I bought it intending to use it as a spare, but have sold my '07 crf 450 and my '08 Ktm 250 xc because I found myself riding thr rmz most often. Long story short, I think it's a very underrated bike....

Newmann is somewhat right on this topic I think, used 250f's can be sketchy. Obviously, if it only has 20 hours and looks new, jump on it. But you never know how a used bike got treated, out riding or in the garage. But to answer your original question, the only 250'f I would definetly NOT BUY would be a 2004 - 2006 RMZ250, or a 2004 - 2005 KX250F. (same bike) Poor oil flow, coolant flow, and at our shop we tend to see an above average amount of tranny/head/crank/top end issues with those bikes. But then again, lots of guys have those bikes with no problems..............
