    The only place red and yellow go together is on a Ronald McDonald costume.

    That is awfully cheap for a 2012 with 2,000 miles.

    ? I picked up a 2011 last summer for a little less than that with 2500 miles on it. Lovely bikes and cheap to get into. Of course I had to put tires on mine and the CPS went out so That doubled the cost :dirtdog

    For some reason they just LOOK like a motorcycle should look to me. They go very nice on the paint also.

    Very nice, I agree, they look like a motorcycle should. Very classic. . . retro. . . much like the 60's Bonneville's I lusted over.

    Seems fast for carbs to get dirty? May be battery or fuel pump? I have the same issue with my car so would love opinions.

    I am looking for a little bike to learn dirt on.

    2009 Kawasaki KLX250S

    condition: good
    engine displacement (CC): 250
    fuel: gas
    odometer: 5835
    paint color: green
    title status: clean
    transmission: manual

    I've loved having this bike but I'm joining the military in a few months so it has to go. Having some trouble getting it started cold. Fires up fine when it's warm. Will probably need a carb cleaning. I had it cleaned in August and it started up easy every time but then it sat for a while when I was out of town.

    FMF aftermarket exhaust, larger 3 gallon gas tank, new battery, oil was changed a couple hundred miles ago, air filter was just cleaned and oiled. I have a new 5qt jug of oil as well as air filter cleaner/oil/grease that I will throw in. 5835 miles. Clean title in hand.

    $2200. No test rides without cash in

    ^^^^Leaving ethanol enhanced gas in it (carbs and tank) could cause it to start hard. If the owner didn't drain the float bowl or run it with fuel off until it runs out of gas, that could be the issue.

    Could be the oil he is using. Thicker oil makes it harder to start when cold. Had this problem with my KLR. When it got down to 40 or lower, it just wouldn't start. I would drain the battery trying to start that thing. Someone here on ADVRider gave me some advice to switch to a thinner oil weight, and it solved the problem. I tried many things for about three months to figure it out, including cleaning the carb, higher octane fuel, charging battery, etc, etc, and it was just the oil...lol

    I'd still go with the KLX. But that's just cause I don't like Yami's.

    that's a good looking bike, well sorted - if the Road King sells I'll come check that one out.
