My wife's bike, got it mid 2012, it's a 2009 had just over 2000km and like new.. got it serviced to make sure all good, then,
Put hand guards, bash plate, FMF slip on, better tiers D606 front AC110 rear (rubbish TW bullsh*%
Over xmas went down south to Walpole (Western Australia) had a great time now came home have done another service on the bike put foam grips on and a lowering link for my beautiful woman with shorter legs than mine
Also have put some heat wrap on both of our headers to get some heat away from the legs, seems to work well.
I have riding all types of bikes and have a WR450F and I can say I always love riding the XT250,
Only thing I find is that:
a) it's heavy when someone (who will remain nameless or I'll be sleeping on the couch) drops it and I need to pick it up
b) only 5 gears
c) annoying to work on
d) tooooo small for me, but that's ok coz I got a bigger one
I think the best thing is she loves it and give her the confidence to go some crazy place I got with the 450..
