Member Info: I started driving a bike in 2002, using a Kawasaki Kaze 112cc as my guinea pig! After two years I changed it and got a Honda CB400 1994 model (Japanese import). A year later... February 2006 I changed it again and got Suzuki DR250 DJEBEL 1998 model (also a Japanese import). Following that I sold the Suzuki (I must say as stupid as I am!). Anyway, 9 months later I bought the horrible KLR 650 and only lasted for 2 or 3 months since I hated this bike from the second day I got it!

Purchased: Nov 2008
Info: I exchanged my Hyosung GT250 Comet with this bike. Although the GT250 was less than 1 year old, I exchanged it for this one. The main reason was, I owned a Suzuki DR250 previously and I couldn''t get used to the hard ride that the GT250 offers when compared to the soft comfortable ride of a dirt bike! This TTR 250 is a 1993 model. I haven''t yet driven it except to get it checked at the authorit

Info: The exact model of my bike is SUZUKI "DR250RXLW". It was imported from Japan, and was manufactured in 1998. This bike is also known as "DJEBEL XC". The engine is a single cylinder, double overhead camshaft, 249cc. 6 gears (1 down, 5 up). One of the thing I like most on this bike is the digital (LCD) tripmeter/speedometer with a peach backlight display. This displays the a

Sold: Feb 2006
Info: This model has a 4 cylinder, double overhead camchadt engine, with 4 carbs, each of which pumps fuel into a different cylinder. A very powerful bike, but not very comfortable and practical for everyday use to and from work and errands. In such a case, this bike is not so economical and practical, especially since it´s very tiring in traffic and quite heavy to handle, especially when compared to a

Purchased: Jul 2007
Sold: Sep 2007
Info: This is a 650cc Single Cylinder eingine, Double Overhead Camshaft (DOHC) with 4 valves. There are two similar models in this range from Kawasaki. There is the KLX 650 which is a lighter frame, more torquey (apparently) and designed for offroading. Then there is the KLR 650 (the one I had), which has a heavier round frame (as opposed to the boxed frame on the KLX), less torque but supposedly bi

Purchased: Dec 2007
Sold: Nov 2008
Info: This is a 250cc V-Twin bike. It was in red, and still in mint condition when I exchanged it for a 1993 Yamaha TTR 250. I had done a mod on the bike to convert the lights on the instrument panel to white LEDs instead of the dull yellow given by the original bulbs. Although I had the bike for a year I don''t think I have pictures of the bike, I only have pictures of the light mod I did :-8
