Late notice, I know, but I'm thinking about RRMT tomorrow. New-to-me slow bike so I'll just be taking it easy.

Never mind, I just checked the weather.

OK, so the weather looks good for RRMT next Saturday, assuming they don't get a deluge of Biblical proportions on Friday:


Who's in?

Please tell me they're not closed

I'll be there Saturday, aiming for 10 a.m. I'll be on a new-to-me KLX.

Wwyd?

Hi NTX!
I hope y'all enjoyed RR. Been there, and can't wait to go back!

I've been in lurker mode on this sight, waiting for the perfect bike to come along. I may have found it! Its a 2009 Kawasaki KLX 250 SF. Attached a pic, and am hoping to get some feedback as to what you would do (I mean besides the obvious- tires) to get it dirt-proof.
Thanks!

I have the dirt version ('09 KLX 250 S); the only thing that I really changed was to drop the front sprocket down one tooth and I felt like it was just about as good as it would get. Now I need to get the suspension set up for my weight.

Handguards, skid plate, radiator guards, maybe change the gearing at somepoint (50 rear sprocket, 14 or 13 front sprocket), get the right racetech springs for your weight if you're over 180.

130. May be less expense just to get the S?
