Please help me and my friends here in Spring TX. because they got their bikes stolen tue. night! One is just 5 or 6 weeks old! He hasn't even made a payment yet! It is stock except for a 53 or 54 rear sprocket, o-ring chain and hand gaurds. It has a chip out of the left side of the rear fender and the right hand gaurd was removed because of a missing wedge bolt. The other is a 2001 with blue/silver renthal bars, hand gaurds, fmf disc. system insert with 6 discs, missing mud flap, 53 or 54 rear, o ring chain. all stickers removed except shrouds and side plate backgrounds. Look around for anything suspicious please. Thanks in advance! Oh yeh, it has a short clutch lever also.

Your ridin' bud, Kurt( yz 250 )

Kurt - I live in The Woodlands, not far from you. Where were the bikes stolen from? Did your buddies have insurance?

Sorry to hear about it.

That does suck. Just an idea but most of the time it is someone closeby in the nieghborhood. Usually kids. Keep a close eye out in the next couple weeks in fields and the hills, they are more likely to mess around there than a track.

Also, when my buddy got his stolen, he put up signs around his neighborhood with a reward and some 15yr old kid turned his buddy in. I Hope they turn up...

Thanks for all your input guys. SKTHOM 2320: My friend lives on acreage a few miles west of I45 in spring. Yes he did have insurance. Allstate paid the claim thru the mail in 2or 3 days! I must admit that part suprised me, because I just assume big ins. companies would give flack on claims like these. We are shopping right now for used bikes. Anyone know of a yz/wr 400/426 for sale? Possibly a ktm 520 or 400? Let us know soon because you know what bike fever can do to a man with cash in his hand and no bike to ride!

Thanks again, your ridin' bud Kurt

I have a 2000 for sale - about 8 hours on the bike - it is truly mint - no mods. All is original - even the back tire. It has never been down - original bars even.

My scanner is down - but if you're really interested I could mail to you pics.

$4300 - you would not be disappointed.
