2005 Kawasaki KX250F - Test Ride & Review - Dirt Rider

By editorial staff

February 24, 2009

It has been one year since Kawasaki and Suzuki embarked on their first joint project: the mighty 250 four-stroke. Last year's highly anticipated KX-F/RM-Z250 definitely opened some eyes as the bike was a contender in its first year of production. During our 2004 MX shootout (Jan. '04) testers praised the motor, but it wasn't long before the first-year blues became apparent. Problems in the cooling system, with the transmission and clutch and the suspension began to surface as the bikes were made available to the public, and some of the ailments left many scratching their heads. Did the co-op not work? Or did someone try to cut corners somewhere along the line in the bike's development? Whatever the answer, there was no doubt the bike had potential; it just needed some fine-tuning. And that is exactly what the '05 model received. After our initial days of testing on the second-generation KX-F/RM-Z, it was clear the bike got the redesigns it needed.COOL AID
One of the biggest glitches the '04 model had was in its cooling system. If the temperature was hotter than 70 degrees and our test bike was being ridden aggressively, it would lose coolant faster than we could replace it. For '05, the hyperthermia was treated with 40mm-longer radiators, which offer much greater volume and cooling capacity. The water pump was also revised to keep the coolant flowing properly. A side benefit was the water pump cover was separated from the oil-filter cover, so thankfully you no longer have to drain the coolant just to change the oil filter. Now that cooling is less of a headache, the motor runs strong consistently, and none of our testers smelled that warning odor of coolant dripping from the bottom of the bike.As for the motor, it didn't get too many performance updates, which is a good thing since it has some of the best power characteristics of any of the 250 four-strokes. The four-valve cylinder head received some minor changes to enhance overall throttle response. On the track, the motor gives an abundance of confidence. The power hits hard off the bottom, pulls hard through a strong midrange to the top-end and revs out well before hitting the rev-limiter. This personality caters to all skill levels; it is super-rider-friendly as it offers healthy roll-on power with minimal clutch required to get the rpm up.The modifications to the motor gave the new bike a bit more snap, so whether you're just cruising or out hammering motos, it responds. As Kawasaki technicians had come up with some great jetting in stock trim, we merely opted to richen the fuel screw from 1.75 turns out to 2.0. The transmission shifted flawlessly under hard acceleration. Last year's model became known for transmission woes, often losing third gear. The '05 KX-F/RM-Z has a shot-peened third gear for increased durability. Another weak link, the clutch also gained improved-design friction plates, and our clutch didn't show any signs of fading during testing. The clutch cable is now lined with Teflon, easing and lightening the overall pull a bit.A BIT BUMPY
We aren't going to beat around the bush: Some of us really hated the suspension on last year's bike. Unfortunately, other than new low-friction oil seals the '05 didn't receive any revisions to the Kayaba suspension. We were really hoping for some updates. It would have been great to see the bike come with the same Kayaba suspension as on the new Yamahas and the KX250 two-stroke, or the same Showa suspension that comes on the new Suzuki RM250 two-stroke. After spinning numerous laps, we played around with the clickers on the fork, ending up at 10 clicks out on compression compared with the stock 12 clicks out. We stiffened up the fork a bit to soak up big braking bumps but could do very little with high-speed impacts, as the Kayaba is harsh and choppy in fast sections.The fork tends to sit very high in the stroke and is too progressive in fast sections yet not progressive enough in low-speed sections. The shock worked better. We toyed with different ride heights and ended up running the recommended 98-100mm of sag. In rough track conditions we opted to stick with the stock compression settings at 12 clicks out, but we did speed up the rebound 2 clicks. A bit quicker rebound kept the shock from packing through braking bumps. Under hard acceleration the rear tire stays planted and hooked up. For the most part the shock is predictable; it can deflect off square edges and bottom abruptly when landed short or even flat in faster sections but responded well to some of our adjustments.MOLDED FOR MOST
The ergonomics are compact but were approved by all of our test riders. The seat did actually get a small update as the mid-seat height is a tad higher. Its foam is firmer and sits under a new gripper seat cover that is built much better than last year's thin cover. The handlebar mounts are adjustable, allowing you to rotate them forward to get a bit more room. We opted for the forward position as most of our testers felt the small change helped with comfort in the standing position. The footpegs have been widened and shortened for better clearance in ruts. We suffered no troubles from the footpegs packing with mud as with last year's bike, and we also found better grip. A new clutch perch and lever with a handy quick-adjust replaces the 1970s-era assembly and provides smooth action. Overall, the KX-F/RM-Z feels light, nimble and very narrow. All the bodywork is tucked in, and each piece molds with the next, so there is no snagging or hanging up your boots or pants.NEW AND IMPROVED
Although the '05 didn't undergo a myriad of alterations, the ones it got made a world of difference. The '04 enjoyed a bit of a bad rap, especially for durability, but today's competition is a tough and demanding lot. So it comes down to nitpicking. With increased robustness in the transmission and new radiators to keep the motor from overheating, this bike could very well move into contention for a shootout win. The only true holdback could be the unchanged Kayaba suspension. If you're thinking of purchasing a KX-F/RM-Z, you could get the suspension done and make your bike perfect. And if you're a racer, you'll find the contingency for this bike is awesome. Not to mention the trackside service Team Green and Suzuki offer.Opinions

Although the KX-F/RM-Z has been the underdog in its respective class, it's one of my favorites. For me, the motor has more usable power than any of the other bikes in this class, and the power hits harder and carries all the way through the rpm. The ergonomics fit me to a "T," and the bike's maneuverability is effortless. The suspension is not nearly as good as it should be, but who cares? Instead of spending $800 on an exhaust system, you should spend the money on redoing the suspension. With new suspension, this would be the bike I would take to the starting line week in and week out.
Corey Neuer/5'11"/159 lb/IntermediateI was truly impressed with Kawasaki's 2005 KX250F. After I got the suspension dialed in as best as I could, I was amazed at how well the bike handled. I could turn anywhere I wanted and pick any line I wanted. The motor has tons of power. I have been riding big 450s lately, and I have to say the KX-F didn't feel the least bit slow—it has power whenever you need it. I really liked the front brake; it offers a ton of stopping power and never faded on me. I liked the ergonomics with the handlebar mounts forward to get a bit more room, plus that seemed to give a bit more leverage on the handlebar, making it easier for me to pull up on the front end.

Kawasaki is expected to release their 450 four-stroke motocrosser for 2006, making them the last of the major manufacturers to jump on the big four-stroke bandwagon. Why did it take Kawasaki so long to release a four-stroke for the 250 class? It could be because their two-stroke 250 is a damn good bike!

Since our first ride on the 2005 KX250 last October, we’ve had the opportunity to spend quite a bit more time with the bike that James Stewart will ride in AMA competition this year. We rode the KX250 at all of our favorite tracks, and everything we learned basically backed up the impressions we got in our initial test.

The most impressive part about the KX250 is the motor. The low-end and midrange power is abundant yet smooth and controllable, and the KX fires out of corners with authority. The top-end is strong as well, but perhaps not the strongest in its class, and we learned that the KX worked better when short-shifted to keep it in the meat of its midrange powerband. If you are looking for a 250 with strong, useable power, look no further, as the KX definitely does not dissapoint in this area.

We also stuck with the jetting change we made in our initial test (dropping the needle one notch), and never felt the need to change the carb settings any further than this.

The gearbox on the KX worked well for our testing (we didn’t experience any shifting problems after our first test), and we found the ratios to be well matched to the bike’s powerband. However, since the KX motor makes so much low-end and midrange, we did consider going down a tooth on the back sprocket for faster tracks, which might let you hold each gear a little longer. Unfortunately, we never got a chance to try this change.

The KX250 received a new frame for 2005, as well as revised shock settings and completely new KYB forks which are similar to the highly successful twin-chamber Showa design. Recent Kawasaki motocrossers have been good handlers, and the ’05 KX250 is no exception. In fact, this is the best handling KX250 yet! The bike is stable in a straight line, yet it performs exceptionally in the corners, turning in precisely and holding its line well. The KX is particularly impressive in ruts and on berms, although on flat turns the front end sometimes wants to run a little wide mid-corner.

The new fork and revised shock perform well, coming close to the performance of the class-leading Showa components on Honda’s CRF450R. The KX was reasonably plush and did an acceptable job of soaking up small chop and braking/acceleration bumps, but was most impressive on larger hits where the action was smooth and progressive. This is the best suspension the KX250 has ever had, and one of the best ever fitted to a 250 two-stroke.

We also found the ergonomics on the KX to work for a wide variety of riders, including those in the 6’2″-6’4″ range who may feel cramped on some modern motocross bikes. The seat is well-shaped and the relationship between seat and pegs is comfortable.

The KX proved to be very reliable, with no mechanical issues despite the fact that our maintenance schedule was limited to oil changes and cleaning the air filter. The green plastics held up well despite a few tumbles, and the fit and finish of the bike was good. When we returned our test unit to Kawasaki after a couple months of riding, it looked nearly new, except for the worn paint on the frame spars above the pegs (which happens to every motocrosser we have ridden which features a painted frame).

With all these positives going for it, we weren’t surprised to see that the 2005 KX250 has won the 250cc class shootout in at least two major print mags. It doesn’t have any major flaws, while its motor and handling are at or near the top of the class. The U.S. MSRP for the 2005 Kawasaki KX250 is $5,999. See Kawasaki’s web site for more details and specifications.

KX250F 4-Stroke Ride \u0026 Wheelies

So I go into the bathroom, I see she continues to caress herself. I stood in a stupor for a long time and did not know how to approach her (After all, she is my best friend). And suddenly she gets up and comes up to me, gently kissing me, she began to slowly let go of her knees, unbuttoned the fly.

Poor - I also smiled, how close he was to the truth, I had no idea. Although I think he did, he had a lot of intrigues, and he was famous for very original antics. This photo. Just in the style of his relationship with women.

Bed. I hit my pussy, hot and juicy, my tongue sliding over the clitoris and inside. Julia raised her legs and put them on my shoulders and pressed them with her hands and began to moan. I squeezed my breasts and licked unconscious, like a dream.

Now discussing:

And Alexey began to check the perfection of Anya's ass and chest. He liked all this fussing under the covers next to him. Igor, with his mouth occupied, periodically made indistinct indignant sounds, and Alexei became interested in what she was doing with him there.
