    Post attempt 2.0. 2018 250 EXC TPI, received new in Jan 2018. Best thing I ive ridden. After years of 450 four strokes I don't think I'll go back to four bangers, all things being equal. No issues with the TPI, good power and torque and doesn't foul plugs, and love the oil tank so no mixing fuel.

      Jeez thatís a Beautiful bike.

      Iíve just joined the club with a 2007 KTM SX 250. The previous owner had it set up for enduro. It needs a few little service things but was good value and Iíll enjoy having a tinker.

            Assuming you are talking about the Yamaha version and not the Husky one then yes. It will unlikely ever drop below $2k as long as it is still running. Can still get plastics and graphics to tart it up and they are bullet proof.

              Yep, Yamaha. Thanks. Got to continue arguing with the wife about it. Apparently 7 regos is already too much.

                250 rego is very cheap compared to cars though

                Comment


                  My GSXR was put through wrong when I got it rego'd and is a 500 apparently. Cheap rego and green slips. Hopefully never crash and get dicked.

                  What are WRs like on the road? Got a 25km each way commute and it would be great if it could do that as well.

                    Depends on what sort of speed. They will sit on 100km without too many issues with standard gearing but they will be running at about 75% max rpm. Balancing tyres will help as well.

                          Took the 250 SX for its first blast.
                          Did front wheel bearings
                          Bled brakes and clutch
                          Reset front forks and bled air
                          New air filter
                          Drained and replaced gearbox oil (only 50ml came out)
                          New plug
                          New grips

                          It goes bloody hard that donk. Played around with settings, tyre press, dampers and bar position and started to feel really comfy.

                          Checked gearbox oil after a few runs and itís lost 100ml so will need to do seal into crankcase.

                            Do you have a property out at Balkuling, or are these actual tracks to be able to ride around on?
