Its a tough choice -i had a 03 kx and rode my friends 03 rm alot, the engines are very close.KX has better brakes, RM has better suspension.RM is taller and KX is smaller so if your tall the RM is better.RM steers better.
Its a tie overall so it depends on your preferences.
Id say get the KX. Some RMs have reliability issues from what I heard. Some kid I kno got an RM 250 04 and the nikasil in the cylinder started chipping. I own the 03 KX 250. Also, I have heard from my friends dad from down south, the guy got an 03 RM 125 and the bike seized first ride, got it rebuilt, then went out again and blew again. But again, its up to you, I just reccomend the KX
We have the 03 RM and have very few hours on it so far as we bought it for next season for my son. I wouldn't put much stock into the "I heard the bike blew up stories" Because it's the nature of these beasts and I'm sure we could all find someone who's relatively new bikes blew up. The one thing you will need to know for the RM is that the Canadian models come jetted WAY fat to the point I really feel someone goofed on the specs.
kawasaki have a long history of poorly desighned 125s especially the 1992. the suzuks on the other hand have been consistent with thier 125s. if you were to by a brand new 125 I think the suzuki would be the better option.

I have a 2002RM125 and I have never heard of this $25 spark plug issue? I run a NGK BR9EG and my bikes runs perfect. Somebody please post a link to the thread discussing these RM125 spark plug issues.
