Pipe issues. (Score:1)
Power
Ok, This bike has Poor to no bottom end power but ill tell ya what to do about it in a sec. Mid to top end power is awsome! Great power from the midrange up. One of the faster years for the KX 250 ever.

You will never get ANY bottom end out of this bike, you can put any pipe on it you want and this will not help your cause. What you need to do is go find your buddy who has a 1994 KX250. Steal his stock expantion chamber, put stock 94 KX250 pipe on it. One mount wont line up but dont mind that the silencer will hold the exahst on just fine. Putting a 94 pipe on the 93 KX250 and all of the sudden you have torq like a KX500 with all the midrange and top you used to have. My buddy couldnt figure that one out, it will even sound like a KX500.
Ergonomics
Feels like a jap bike, how else do i discribe it.
Suspension, Front
A bit still for smaller riders, a bit of time spent playing with oil levels and spring rates will help your cause a lot.
Suspension, Rear
Hmmm...How do i say this.......Couchasaki! feels like riding in an easy chair compaired to my YZ490's
Brakes
the disks do their job with athoraty, rear can get too hot and faid out pretty bad, funny i never had that problem with any YZ.
Comments
Good fast bike for most users, you need that 94 pipe though.

Power
Wow. I'm hittin top in first gear before i realize it. Blip the throttle and you're up on one wheel. This is a fast bike. I can easy pass in 5th gear on the highway.
Suspension
I bought my bike with an upgraded Enzo Suspension, and it is wonderful- comfortable, but stiff.
Brakes
Back brake locks up quickly, Brakes are squishy. Not the best, but pretty good.
Comments
Excellent bike, I like it much better than my friends 89 Yamaha 490 (tt?). Also, much better speed and transmission than a 2003 RM250 I rode

Power
Great power. Lots of power. One of the most powerful 250s i've rode to this day.
Suspension
Great suspension. A little stiff maybe, but then again it was modified.
Brakes
Not very good brakes. Kinda mushy.
Comments
A good race bike, great looking bike. But it's just to fat. The perimiter frames are just like that, even the new KXs are like that. To tall to. The cylinder plating is a real concern to. The bikes pinks alot. Good idea to run race gas. Or just buy a CR250 of the same vintage. Worked for Jeremy!

Power
Good Power. It has a extremely hard mid-range hit that climbs to the high revs. With a fly wheel weight and some porting by Eric Gorr it has a complete powerband. Starts low and keeps climbing.
Engine Mods:
Flywheel Weight.
Porting.
Vertex Piston.
Boyseen Rad Valve.
Carb Slide Mod/Rejet.
FMF K-24 Pipe/Silencer.
Factory Concepts Clutch Hub and Basket.
Suspension
Reworked by Local Shop.
As the speed increases the bike gets smoother. At low speeds it is a little rough. Settings are back to base middle settings.
Brakes
I have installed EBC Race Pads and Rotors which improved the braking power. I would recommend this combo to anyone.
Comments
I love the bike. I will keep this bike for a whike
