2000 Yami Xt350 vs 2007 Kawi KLX250
I currently ride a 2000 Yamaha XT350 as a DualSport. Love the Bike except....it's a Kick start and VERYYYYYYY cold-blooded!
I've ridden both off-pavement and like the Power of the XT vs the KLX, but HATE the kick start. Also, the air-cooled seems to be a down-side of the XT in the heat on single track.
I have an opportunity to pickup a KLX250 at a decent price and I'm considering it. But, I need a little help making the final decision............
I've done the +/- thing and here is what I have.
I like the Yami height wise and performace wise over the Kawai, but it is hard starting and Always a kick starter!
The Kawi is 7 years newer and has ~ 8,000 less miles.
The Kawi was ridden by a 250 lb man off-road for ~ 1500 to 1800 miles. Nornal scuff marks, but nothing beyond cosmetic that I can tell.
I know...why decide...have both!
Whatda you all think?
