This is most likely a 1989- 1991 model. It is worth nothing . I bought a 1993 KX250 that appeared to be in a much better state than this one. I canít sell it for half of what it cost to get it running properly. For the money I could have bought an almost new bike.

I agree, I would not take that bike for free, you will just end up dumping it.

 :-\ I just got mindfucked. So I phone the guy and said the bike is bit old and parts are expensive he just said "okay, so R4000 is to much to ask for it then" I said hold on I'll think about it some more.

What you guys think? Could I sell the worthy parts easily if it is gonna cost too much to fix?
I'm not saying kill stupid people, I'm saying, remove the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

I would not buy it for R4000.

This is how a RM should look  ;D



If I could afford it yes  :thumleft:
Nice bike  :ricky:


That is the beauty of these 2007/8 Jap 2t bikes, you can pick up a beaut for nearly no money.

If you are patient you can pick up 3 KX250/RM250 etc for the price of one KTM 300. And the 300 does not exactly run away from them. 

Dave that is so true  :thumleft:
And there are also plenty good YZ250's around , just look at Buff's 09 YZ

Donald; now that I have this one sorted I am really enjoying it; it took a jet kit, flywheel weight and some suspension work to sort it out.
