2000 XT350 vs 2007 KLX250
I currently ride a 2000 Yamaha XT350 as a DualSport. Love the Bike except....it's a Kick start and VERYYYYYYY cold-blooded!
I have an opportunity to pickup a KLX250 at a decent price and I'm considering it. But, I need a little help making the final decision............
I've done the +/- thing and here is what I have.
I like the Yami height wise and performace wise over the Kawai, but it is hard starting and Always a kick starter!
The Kawi is 7 years newer and has ~ 8,000 less miles.
The Kawi was ridden by a 250 lb man off-road for ~ 1500 to 1800 miles. Nornal scuff marks, but nothing beyond cosmetic that I can tell.
I know...why decide...have both!
Whatda you all think?

If you have the $$ , go for the KLX
Its a modern dual sport with a great suspension, and a ton of farkles available
It might be slightly underpowered compared to the 350, but a gear change, and a few mods, and your good to go!

You might want to look around for mods for the XT. I'm not sure if they exist, but for the 225/250 model, there is a air/fuel screw that can be tweaked that does wonders for the cold nature of the XT.
