Kx250 Built with the best parts- Frankenstein
The Kx250 wasn’t known for having the best handling yet was renown for being one of the finest powerbands on the market. with the help of porting and a larger carb we can agree… this bike rips! now for the handling, a lot was changed to bring this bike where the rest of the pack lays. When running current technology this bike is a weapon- cuts like a sword in the corners and shoots like a bullet in the straights. Here’s how we did it below.

KX250 swing arm upgrade
The stock swingarm is no longer produced and is a 1lb lighter. Not a needed upgrade but an option to further enhance this amazing platform.
Kx250 Rear shock Mod
The 16mm old style shock was great 20 years ago now there is better options and we’ve made a kit to swap it. 50mm body and more precise internals let ya run a $3500 works shock for a fraction of the price.
Brembo brakes on a Kx250
Bolt up some of the best brakes made for instant feedback and little to no faded under hard abuse.
Kx250 fork upgrades
Saving 2lbs in weight and still being able to run the stock wheel design this a win along with having the ability to adjust the ride height this is one of our favorite forks out currently!
Titanium bolt Kit for the KX250
with the ability to save 4lbs and look amazing the bolt kits are an easy way to take a dirt bike build to the next level.
Kx250 Rear brake improvements
From the lighter pedal along with a larger brake claw to the oversized rear master cylinder this bike feels like it looks… all new and improved.
KX250 carb kit – Keihin 39mm PWK
This bike was meant to be rode wide open and that’s where this carb shines, nothing compares. Unless one would run a Keihin short body 40mm which we might have to try on the dyno!
Kx250 footpeg wide option.
For the Pegs were running a newer OEM Kawi set up as they are amazing for this generation
Kx250 easy clutch lever perch pull
Another OEM part with a more progressive pull ratio. It’s a part ya didn’t think was needed till it’s being used 100 times a session!
