    Random question... I need a "new" KLX 250 here in Malaysia. From Kawasaki's web page it seems the FI is the same on the 300 and the 250 and the stroke is the same.

    We don't have the 300 in Malaysia... how difficult do you guys in Thailand think it would be to ride up on KLX250 and get the jug/piston swapped out with the 292cc from the 300?

    Looks Like Kawi wants people to race this bike in local venues. Some type of Niche market. No lights means no sale for me.

    But hey, Rock on to all you racers at there in Thailand getting your moto on!

    As far as swapping out Cylinders and Pistons, and all the associated 4 stroke parts required, why bother ? Unless of course, you are one of those persons who like to pull up to a start line, and claim your in a 250 Class but are actually running a 300 engine between your legs?

    Cheers

    The reason to bother is the KLX 250 has an extremely long life. However, that can be a negative thing if you hate every moment of it. It also is "extremely improveable"... My 2008 went from +/- 17 RWHP stock (non-corrected with knobby) to 29 with the 351/pumper/pipe etc while still being extremely reliable.

    Random safety reason: On Malaysia's freeway there is safety in being faster off the line and over all that a majority of cars/busses/trucks.
    A stock KLX 250 would currently beat about 40% of cars off the line and 20% of the average cars top speeds.
    My 351 beats about 90% off the line, and 40% of cars top speeds; it does beat the most dangerous vehicles on the roads at night - the busses which have a speed governor. (Police random road checks have shown over 80% of drivers are on speed. Most work insane hours with little sleep and the speed keeps the up but also makes them aggressive.)

    My 2008 was the last year with car in Malaysia. Until recently, I don't think anyone had gotten the FI to work well with Bill's 351cc kit.
