    Picked up this gem this past weekend. 2007 Kawasaki kx250f. I've been a fan of 2-stroke bikes for the longest time but I got tired of the same bullshit of changing out pistons and unreliability, so I opted for a 4 stroke. This thing is MINT and it stole it from the person I bought it from.

    What is the best Kawasaki dirtbike forum? I've been looking but can seem to find any good ones. I need to change out my fork seals and can't even find a decent write up.

    Are there any sources for service manuals or diagrams?

    What are your experiences with Kawasaki bikes? I've ridden Yamaha all my life, but this bike comes stock with titanium valves, which I like. Also is jetted and HMF piped :) . Let me know what you think :x:

    Yeah I did. I was putting in pistons every few months. And fuck mixing fuel. What do you ride?

    A 250F is gonna be considerably MORE expensive to maintain than a 250 smoker.

    I've got a bunch of shit, currently nothing runs. My 625SMC got stolen a week and a half ago.

    Every Yamaha from 2001-2009 came with the titanium five-valve head.

    www.thumpertalk.com is the best.
