I wanted the try the 250cc class. Just because after having many honda 650cc enduro’s I always wanted something lighter and a bike capable handling the off-road and dirt road driving.
I try to collect my mods and other KLX related stuff under this page.
my KLX250S is european EFI version 2011 model.
Mods so far:
-header ported (weld beam removed)
So far I have noticed that KLX seems to get very good fuel consumption numbers. 3.5litres/100km. It can run at 60mph(100km/h) travel speed, but is not very enjoyable at those speeds, anything lower is very easy and comfortable. It can go off-road, but it’s not a 100kg race enduro. But it can do it, in a slower speed at least.
The best usage area is small dirt roads where the speeds needed are lower and weight(138kg) doesn’t matter as much as in real off-road. And driving small dirt roads is what I like to do.
