These guys have the full stainless/aluminum system with the quiet insert/spark arrestor for 377.90. It is the cheapest I've seen with all of the parts. If the jcmotors price includes the insert/arrestor I'll be jumping on that band wagon. Every dollar saved is another dollar for more mods!

That is correct. You may want the spark arrestor/quiet insert to go with it at the bottom #0045-00012 for 27.95 - depending on where you plan to ride. Hope it helps.



On a side note... I have been really concerned about my suspension until today. I'm about 210 and do some aggressive riding. I could tell that I was really working the suspension and having a lot of bottoming. The dealership told me that the stock settings on the bike would be fine for my weight. On another klx site I see that the stock set-up is for 150 lbs. I guess it pays to read the manual, eh? I share this for those of you who may have been similarly misled.

re-jet the carb when you put the muzzys system on the bike at the same time.its a must
an other great idea ,would be to put a 13 tooth front sproket at the same time.


was in guam a few times getting fuel.(canadian navy)we did stay a week in sia pan.that place was nice,could only dream of what riding that island wouls be like.although we did rent a new jeep tj and write it off

its not to bad here there are alot of trails to ride out here, lots of jeeps and 4x4 stuff, got some hills and dust bowls only problem is like a sand dune but hard, first 1 inch is soft and loose underneith its hard as a rock, I was riding a 660 raptor last weekend and almost crashed it a few times little too fast for the trails.

fooking jap / thai bolts ... the bloody heads are made out of cheese, nothing has changed in 30 years.

I went to remove my gear lever cause I bent it a little and I wanted to streighten it off the bike. I have good quality tools and I used the correct size (8mm). The spanner just spun on the head of the %$#@ing bolt. Of course you can't get a socket to it cause the frame is in the way. So now I'll have to somehow get my visegrips onto it and try to undo the *&^%er. Jeeeezzzz that makes me mad

Valves @ 3200 Miles

There is a controversy over the first valve check. Book says 7500mi, dealer says 600mi. I skipped the 600mi due to the book, and I checked them due to high end stumble. HERE are my results.

A few questions about the klx 250s

I really interested in this bike, it fits with most of the riding I plan on doing, except for the long trip from TN to CO and back this summer. I will need to cary all the neccessary provisions plus camera gear and lap-top. Will this little wonderbike be up to the task of such a long ride? Very little if any super-slab, mostly state roads and trails that I run across. I will have to manage the wind of OK, MO, etc. but I would think that it would handle that okay... Am I nuts?

I rode 110 miles with my wife on the bike. The bike performed wonderfully, however, my butt was killing me. The seat isn't great for prolonged sitting. My off-road style involves a lot of standing so I don't notice it there.

The bike runs great on the 100-150 mile trips I've put it through. I will run wide open for an hour or so with no problems. Now loading a ton of gear won't happen. 10lbs of gas on the rack and...LINK

I was wondering about this too. I just did an oil change and lately I have noticed my valves ticking a lot. Thought the oil change might help it out a but... it didn't. I was wondering why the dealer told me I should have them done at 600 instead of 7500, I just thought they were trying to sell me something I didn't need...... guess I was wrong. I have an apt tomorrow to get the valves done, they said 1.5-2 hours of work at 55.00 an hour so I guess it isn't not worth it. I just wanted to say thanks for posting this info to help people like me that haven't been around a bike in quite some time. I have got a lot out of this thread and this just adds to it.
