Got myself a new toy to play around with, I originally bought a KTM 150sx to this years season on but after not been as race fit as I thought I was I got rid of it.
Anyway, when I bought the 150, it was only one of 3 in NSW at the time (who knows what ktm are thinking) I put it on bikesales and it sold in no time only losing out a few hundred bucks, lesson learned.
My mate who is racing this years MX nationals called me and said he was picking up his new Honda for the upcoming season and while he was there maybe get a hookup on a runout '11 model CRF250R.
After a bit of negotiating, came up with a deal too good to miss and we were on our merry way.
Stock the bikes are alright but really restricted in the exhaust and a bit soft in the suspension for a guy my weight. Prepped the bike by stripping it down, regreasing headstock, linkage and giving the nut's and bolts a good going over, because they were crate bikes there was quite a bit to do before they were ready to ride.
Did a bit of shopping both locally and overseas, the bike has an impressive parts list that I'm slowly fitting to the bike as I get time.
