    Exclamation 2003 Suzuki RM250 (2-stroke motocross bike)

    Throwing my race bike up for sale, I want to get into a 4-stroke 450 for next season so this has to go first. This bike is loaded with upgrades, runs super crisp, and meticulously maintained.

    2003 RM250:

    -Boyesen Reeds
    -FMF Gold Series SST pipe(not a single ding/dent)
    -FMF Pro Circuit R304 Silencer
    -Gripper seat cover with new foam
    -custom jetting
    -rebuilt braking system (3 months ago)
    -wave rotors front and rear
    -rebuilt rear suspension linkage (beginning of summer '12)
    -Suspension rebuild/upgrade by MotionCraft
    -Excel rims

    I have a bunch of extras that will come with such as a plethora or spare levers, a brand new in packaging rear fender, stock pipe, stock reeds, and anything else I happen to have for this bike. It's been a great bike. I purchased it off a technician from Hot2Go (a racing snowmobile and motorsports shop in wheatfield). Previous owner did a top end refresh on it and jetted the carb. Starts 1st or second kick EVERY time. Oil is changed roughly twice a week religiously, and filter is changed or cleaned (depending on condition) every couple hours worth of ride time.

    ONLY things this bike could maybe use is a new rear tire and maybe grips and a graphics kit. I'm pretty firm on my asking price of $1500, but money talks. I'll most likely continue to ride and maintain this until it sells, or trade it in for a '12 leftover in the spring if it doesn't sell.









    Dent-free pipe:




    Reeds:





    I'm avoiding CL cause I really don't care to deal with fuckbags trying to offer me $800 and mass amounts of flaky emails. Thanks for your interest, PM or post for questions and whatnot.

    they almost ALWAYS are..... I'm not a balls-to-the-wall type of rider, I'm 26 and past my prime so I don't ride fearless like this 13-16yr old kids I race against lol. I've had this bike around 3yrs now and it has never let me down.

    Damn this seems pretty cheap, I've ridden an old 250 and it was a death ride, I can't imagine how a new one is.

    it's definitely snappy as shit and a dream in corners.....I'm just ready to upgrade, and my old age has me more relaxed on the throttle and I would be better suited on a thumper.

    bump. Would take rock-bottom price of $1350 FIRM for an NYspeeder, not a penny less....if I can move it before winter. Otherwise I'll trade it in during the winter on a 2012 leftover.

    BUMP!

    $1350 until November 12th

    after November 12th I'll just trade it in. I was trying to sell this instead so I could pay off a few small credit card debts and take a little money to Vegas, but if that doesn't happen I'll just trade it in when I get back while the winter prices come down and 2012 leftover 450f's are easy to be had.

    NOPE

    only thing I would honestly consider trading for is a well-cared-for example of a 450f, either honda or yamaha. I would be willing to put cash on top for a great 450f, but would be via a personal loan through my credit union.....but chances are someone isn't going to be looking to trade down to a 250-2stroke from a 450f

    2 stroke 250s ftw, I've been thinking about picking one up with my tax money this time around. I hate the 4 strokes, way too tedious. I sold my 250s and bought two 450's and a 250f and had nothing but regrets. I will NEVER do a valve shim job again. Bump for you, someone will scoop this up.

    would CONSIDER trading for a RWD manual trans'd car with independant rear suspension (I.E. 240sx or something of the like)
