I don't think so ( I may be wrong). There are a few specifically for the KLX250s though
I got mine from this guy and am very happy with it, about the same price as your link. http://www.scorpionracing.ca/
Edit: Looks like its a few more bucks. I think I had a coupon code from someone. It is a beefy plate however.
Thanks FNG, ordered it from Bill today.
I put one in the airbox on my XT 225 Yammie and it worked great if I went from sea level to over 9000'
TPI claims you can compensate for upto 2 jet sizes for change in elevation/temperature
I shattered my Tibia and broke my ankle back on March first. I now have some screws and a titanium rod. In the Atlanta area we have been soaked and when I crashed this past March it was the 2nd worse rain amounts of all time. Within 2.5 months I was riding street thanks to my doctor who did a great job and he told me about the Exogen which is an ultra sound device which made the bones heal 40% quicker, I spent every other day at the gym on a recumbent bike.
The crash is at the end of this video.
Crappy K270 tire did not bite!
Tree and trail did!
This is what I slipped on..
I m almost 100% now
I have a brand new MT-21 and it has been doing well.
Think short term goals/milestones and you will heal quickly!
my 06 250s' shock is DONE.. i was curious if it could be swapped for a 1998 klx300 shock? or any other bike? looking for options.. anything will do as i plan on selling it, but i might keep it if i get it fixed & no one is gonna wanna buy it for the right price when it bounces like a pogo stick
Finally started the ride report of the Trans-Eastern Trail. Day one is complete, going to start writing day two later.
Going to read that to see how the KLX did. I just bought a 2006 KLX in June. I took the 800GS last time on the WV portion of the TET, but it wasn't much fun in the mud.
Edit: it looks like you started at the same Sheetz by 224 that we did last summer.
It was the sheetz in weirton that we started at.
I would much prefer a klx to the 800gs on this ride. It had rained a lot before I went, then rained again on the second day. There was a lot of mud. I'll get more written later on today if I get a chance.

Can someone recommend a longer shift lever with a larger bar for the KLX 250? I have a 09 with the BB351 and FMF Q4 mostly because I am Six two and 200 lbs. My problem is my size 13 feet. It is fine with regular street boots but when doing the dual sport rides with my size 13 Gaernes it is hard to get my toe under the shifter. I tried rotating it up one notch on the shaft but then it is too high and I have to lift my whole leg to gear up. Not fun. I am not lazy but searching the web is very time consuming and I am 72 so I don't like to waste what time I have left to ride.
I would appreciate your input.
Thanks in advance.

XR650L will fit it. I have MSR. TNC has a suggestion here....
Others have just cut and welded an extension.
Man thanks for the quick response. I will get one coming.
I could not get the MSR XR650L to fit. It needs to be bent out to clear the stator cover. I heated that thing up cherry red and it still would not bend. I ended up cutting mine and welding in another 3/4". That worked out great.
I ended up welding a plate inside the shifter to protect the stator cover. That was a good idea, as I dropped the bike a few times on that side and you could see where it contacted the cover but didn't damage it.
Do you think the stock XR650L shift lever would be easier to bend or is it steel also? I wonder how TNC handled that situation? Did he use the stock or MSR?
I'm sure the stock XR lever bends easily.
Thanks I'll give it a try.
Anybody have any ideas for a decent street biased DS tire for the KLX? I've promised Mrs. Stain no more off road till next year and I rode mine for the first time tonight. What a fun little bike - but the big assed knobby tires on it are LOUD and it seems a shame to ruin good knobbies on tarmac...
Why not just use T-63 tires. They're pretty good on the street, and cheap enough. I run K60s for my street oriented tires, but they're pricey unless you're going to do it a lot.
I've used them on anything from DR200 to KLR650 and really love them as a "street oriented DS tire". Economical too, not a bargain basement cheap but ecomomical. They last and grip.
