I sold my DR350S a while back because it was kick-start only and I'm getting too old and weak to kickstart that bike if I dump it. So I was looking for something a little smaller. Looking for a Kawasaki Super Sherpa or XT250. Found an '08 in very nice shape, 5K miles, and I've owned it about a week now. So far I like it a lot. Not awesome power, nor is it a MX bike, but for what it is, it's great. Easy handling, competent off roader, that instills a lot of confidence when you ride. It has a Moose Racing rear rack, that I think is too big. May get something smaller there. I also want handguards and a skid plate. Any other recommendations on mods you've done and liked? The stock tires are on it (the previous owner swapped them out for street treads, and so the originals were in nearly new shape). They're not awful, but they're not great either. I haven't decided which way to go there. The bike will probably end up being a light trail bike, no big highway duty. I have a DR650 also, so that will handle more long asphalt trips. Anyway, glad to be here and see others with the same bike. Is it worth doing that carb mixture adjustment and stock exhaust drill-out? Any advice is appreciated.
