Well I was finally able to sell my 1996 360 exc and come up with a little dough to finally get a much more respectable bike.
I just got tonight a 04 250 exc for great price that I could not pass. I can't believe how much better this bike is, I know it is fairly obvious, but this bike is amazing. I am pretty stoked right now.

Here are some pics from tonight, more to come.

It is a little dirty and needs really nothing but minor tlc. I got brain new sprockets and o ring chain in package still and rear brake pads.
Has some supension work, it has .46 springs which I have to fig out equate to.

I am pumped!

Looks like a nice bike. I would say the .46 fork springs in a 250 are ideal for a 220lb to 240lb rider.

From what I gather the bike was originally owned by ktm, and has ktm hard parts hand guards, and has factory connection sticker on the tube. I think I will call and ask Steve at LC to see what he has to say.
What a differnce this bike is compared to old 96.

It is a wierd camera angle for sure....I didnt see that afterwords, and I have spent a lot of time check the bike out.


I went for first ride, and all I can say is wow, what a bike! I am very much faster and so much I crashed twice and ruined my pipe hitting a tree.
Any suggestions of replace pipe?

Most pipe damage can be fixed. Lansing cycle/EE used to fix pipes for around $50 includes return shipping.
