Im heading to Buffalo NY in about an hour to go grab a 2009 CRF250 for my sons racing buddy... he is finally ditching the 2 stroke.
I just ordered a kit from Pro Circuit for my sons 09 KX250F...it includes,
-both race Cams
-Hi Comp piston/rings/pin/bearings
-hi flow water pump kit/with impeller
and he already has the full PC Ti exhaust
should be a fun little project.
I LOVE dirt bikes!!
Right...What is wrong with 2 stroke? 4 stroke dirt bike are junk and just a big hype right now..Tm racing is coming with a 2 stroke EFI for their dirt bike.. 125 and 250..the only thing good about 4 stroke is their double displacement. 2 stroke are way more fun to ride!.
You know how sometimes people date themselves by touting some old tech as the bestest thing ever? Look, there hasn't been a two stroke on the podium of a motorcross or supercross in quite some time. There are some die hards in endurocross, and hare scrambles - but neither of those require having the fastest, best handling machine.
That said, if I were going to buy a dirtbike today, it would be a 250 2 stroke. I had a 07 kx250f, enjoyed it, but not enough to justify the cost. I can get a 06 kx250 for less than $4k, and the only maintenance is the air filter & trans fluid. If you pop the motor on it, big deal, $800, maybe. And they're a hoot to ride.
You just made a poor argument for something we agree on. However, if $$$ and time were no object I'd have me a new kx450f - they kick ass.
edit: sorry for the obvious thread jack. That's a good link there Garth. I have to spread rep before I can send you any.
how about you two make your own thread about a pissing match between a 2 stroke and a 4 stroke. I know 2 strokes can make more power vs weight and cc but I love the power delivery of a 4 stroke... who cares......
:+1:Thanks for the link Garth! Some of my friends thank you as well.
Morefire, you should try a Dr. D exhaust. They gave me a good sponsership deal through sponserhouse. I ran the full Ti on my Honda 450, and Kawi 250 and it really
woke both of them up.
Love that bike!! Mine looked about the same just a different stroke !Hey Garth... this was my ride last year..
The bike was still brand new in these pic, with the race parts just bolted on. The exhaust system was from one of the Factory race teams, and was completley different than the version you could buy. (contacts) :wink:
