what do you guys think about the reviews the 03kx250 got? they say it fell off top end power and had a big gap between 2nd and 3rd gear that made it fell under powered when going into third. I know they are selling the 03 cheap now days,, is it really that bad that is obsolete to the others? at least in the hand of a non money class rider? do you think its worth an extra 1000 bux for the 04?
thanks.

One of the local pro's here got a Kawasaki ride starting in 03 and I watched all year and thought he looked a little down on power compared to his riding in previous seasons in both the 125 and 250 class. Right out of the box his 04 250 moved him up a spot or two and the 250F seemed to be a big jump for him in the 125 class.

Bottom line for most of us spodely types the 03 will have more power than your ever going to need but if you fancy yourself a pro level mx'er you may want to look at the 04's.
