    Up for sale is my 2006 Kawasaki KLX 250

    I've had it for 3 years now and it has proven to be a reliable and capable dual sport.

    Asking price is $2,600.00 cash.

    I've added a lot of new parts since I bought it and many new parts just in the last couple of months.

    So, here are the details:

    6270 miles

    Oil and filter changed in the spring and fall.

    Air filter cleaned regularly and includes a spare filter.

    Tires are in Moto Z Tractionator IT.

    Both tires are in great shape. The rear is about 70% tread remaining and the front is about 85%.

    Both wheels have Teflon rim liners, Motion Pro rim locks and Michelin Ultra Heavy-Duty tubes

    I've rejetted the carb and replaced the stock snorkel with a KDX220 model to open-up the breathing. It runs very well to redline and has great throttle response.

    Exhaust is stock.

    It has new springs front and rear for a 220lb rider. The valving is unmodified but adjusted for my weight and riding style.

    After I bought it 2016, I flushed the coolant replaced the thermostat (just to be sure, the wasn’t any problem I knew of) and the overflow reservoir as well as added Unabiker radiator guards. The fan works as it should, and the bike has never overheated.

    When I bought it, it had a Clarke gas tank, but eventually the tank started leaking where the gas taps screw into the bottom. So, now it has a new Clarke tank with new brass gas taps as well as a new petcock, fuel lines and in-line filter.

    Stock, the gearing is 14 x 42. I've changed it to 13 x 45 and it is much better in the woods with the lower gearing.

    Included with the bike are the stock sprockets and a x-ring chain. All in good condition.

    After one of the stock turn signals fell off, I replaced the front signals with LED models and replaced the rear turn signals and taillight with a LED taillight that has integrated turn signal. Also replaced the flasher unit with a LED compatible one and added diodes to the turn signal circuits to keep the dash indicator light working correctly.

    Also included in the purchase will be a set of Pirelli MT21 tires that are in good shape, the stock springs, the replaced plastics, the original turn signals and taillight as well as several other replaced parts.

    There probably are other things I missed, but that’s the bulk of it. In short, the bike has been looked after.

    ***** Test ride conditions: I’m glad to offer a test ride with the following conditions-
    · You’ll need to have proper gear. Boots, long pants, helmet, gloves, eye protection and preferably a riding jacket. But definitely some kind of upper body protection.
    · I’ll take a picture of your valid driver’s license with a motorcycle endorsement.
    · Asking price in my hand, in cash.


    ***** Covid 19 Precautions: I’m also glad to show the bike to anyone. However, I’m insisting on good practices related to coronavirus.
    · Everyone will be wearing proper coverings that cover the nose and mouth per CDC guidelines.
    · As much as possible, we’ll all keep a reasonable distance.
    · No physical contact.

    If you not OK with any of the above conditions, I respect your opinion and simply ask you not to consider purchasing this motorcycle.

    And now, back to business!

    How has your gearing change affected top speed? Like a lot of guys my age ( less than 10 in dog years) I am looking for something lighter. And while it is not a hwy cruiser, my primary use would be on road.
    Any trade interest?

    It's not a highway bike by any means. Even with stock gearing, it's not fun at 60 mph plus. For around town, with street tires, stock gearing would be good.
    I lowered the gearing for the woods, to make 2nd and 3rd more tractable.

    Sorry, not interested in trades.
