My second pony in the stable!

As of last week, next to my beloved '05 Wee Strom now sits this '05 KLX 250s. Well, it's actually a KLX 351, as it has Bill Blue's 351 big bore kit and pumper carb, big gun exhaust, acerbis desert tank, fiberglass fairing, skid plate, aluminum handlebars, handguards, Trail Tech Vapor digital instrument cluster, dirt bagz panniers and hard top case, as well as Dunlop 606 tires. I'm having a great time with it and look forward to lots of dual sport rides!

Did the 351 kit kick you in the pants compared to the stock 250 ???

Wicked you are a Moto-bigamist!

Having two girls is great. Your problem has just begun. You have become a "Moto-bigamist". Are two enough? It won't be long before you smell the sweet smell of a third wafting across your nostrils, then there will be a forth, and a fifth. Soon it becomes like those 72 virgins Islam says are waiting in heaven...but we get to have them here! Welcome to the fold brother. Which one will you saddle today...

It was already a 351 when I got it, but the guy I got it from said going from a stock 250 to the 351 with pumper carb and Big Gun exhaust (he put all three on at once) TOTALLY transformed the bike. He also has it jetted and tuned on the dyno by some guys who know what they're doing. I have the charts; it went from 18 HP to 28 HP at the rear wheel! I'd say that's a "Kick in the pants".
