2007 KLX250S

SOLD For Sale in Northwest Louisiana - posting for our riding friend Michelle, who has purchased a new FI digital-camo KLX250 and is looking to sell her 2007 KLX250S. I know this bike well, having ridden and maintained it for 12,000 miles before selling it to Michelle a couple years ago. The details:

2007 KLX250S
17,200 miles
Last Oil/Filter Change at 16,900
DID X-Ring Chain with 13/42 Sprockets at 11,100 miles
IRC GP-1 Tires with 3,800 miles on 'em (30% rear)
Skid Plate
Seat Concepts Seat
Pro-Taper SE Bars with Handguards
Dirt Bagz Mounts & Bags
Lowering Links Installed - Stock Links Included
Engine, Intake, Exhaust are All Stock
$2,000

Typical scuffs, bumps & bruises for a 10 year old dual sport, but the bike is straight and fully functional with a clear title. Michelle can say that the KLX has never been dropped during her tenure; however, I sure can't say the same for my time, having dropped the bike several times.

Please contact Michelle by
email: mmarnold76--at--yahoo.com or
phone/text: 61seven-35nine-861three

Sorry, I don't have any current pics, but here a few "from the archives" that accurately present the condition of the bike:


(Note: Tank Bag & Fender Bag have been moved to then new bike and are not included.)





This KLX completed the 2015 Texas Tiddler Endurance run, even tho it found itself in Quicksand, but pulled itself out with a little help from a feisty TW:

Re: 2007 KLX250S

I wish I had the cash...

I had a 2006 and it was great. In my opinion, this suspension is just as good as a WR250. Not as much power, but it never stopped me.

Yes, the suspension does work well. By the way, for light touring duty, this bike travels well at 61mph per GPS - just right for small state highways we have in La & Ark, but the KLX excels in exploring oiltop, gravel & dirt county roads. This KLX has carried both Michelle and/or I on rides along Louisiana levees and through the Sabine, Kisatchie & Ouachita National Forests. I've ridden this bike on several 300 mile days without issue. Here is a pic from the 2014 Rich Mountain Rendezvous, after the duffle with the camping gear had been removed:

Yep, Dennis Leggett's shop in Joaquin, which is now more akin to a dusty museum.

By the way, Dennis is the host/organizer of the Texas Tiddler Endurance Run: http://www.twtex.com/forums/showthread.php?t=116358

Re: 2007 KLX250S

This KLX has even "been to Oxford" for some higher education:

Re: 2007 KLX250S

Yes, we have a friend that lives on the North side of Longview. It'd be a good location to meet up to ride the KLX, as we both could make the ride avoiding I-20.
