In high school I had an ’81 KLX 250. Nice trail bike with gobs of suspension, terrible hill climber though. Got shown up bad on a hill called monster. Had rained the night before so everything was greasy. About 5 of us were taking turns trying to get up ***n thing. For me with my KLX 1st gear would get up about a third of the way before losing momentum and traction 2 gear on up was just too much for the motor to handle, but would get farther up the hill. Finally the guy that made it had a Husqvarna 390, put the thing in third gear wide open bottom to top. Man, was that wheel churnin some mud! :)

Welcome aboard Speedy_G. You will find some serious excitement between them legs now ! LOL ! Hope your wife/girlfriend isn't insecure. Just kiddin!

About your throttle stop question,

Did it all by me self. It isn't that difficult. However fitting an allen wrench in with Carb still on is a bit time consuming. With perseverance I am sure you can do the same. Do a search on Throttle stop and you will find links with pictures !!!! I took mine out and sawed off the tip - down to wear the threads start. You will find some on here like to have throttle stop chopped to a specific lenghth. I have seen different lengths. Some have removed all together while others state not to do this. I chose to chop - didn't measure but as I said cut down to wear threads start. Then I rounded off end with file. No problems ! Worked like a champ. Hope this helps and ride on my blue brother !!!!

I can testify that I feel 10 years younger. That would put me at age 26! :)

MUCH more fun than a street bike. :D
