Split personality, I fake being smart
Never much of a fan of the 250 as it's a bit porky (lot of gravity in there) a 360 or 400 drops right in and with minor port work plus exhaust you hav ea 120mph dirt bike 8) Those wheels maybe direct from the MX bike, none flanged alloy was stock on them. They can be re-shaped pretty easy, I've done worse and made them look like-new. Just loosen off all the spokes in the bad area and anneal with a propane blowlamp. Put some hand soap on the inside rim flange, when it turns black your good to go with a dead-blow mallet or 4lb 'lump' hammer and wood blocks
The later MX (monoshock) had electronic ignition. Don't remember exact spec but advance curve was totally different on the DT400M<X and stock it was bit of a slug. Fit 250 ignition plus Franconi or similar pipe and it will out accelerate a Kawasaki KX400 then run away at top end, even with stock carb (I think 34mm?)teazer said:That's always a possibility but you need a pickup that can withstand hot(ish) oil.
Is there a later model DT250 that came with CDI that would bolt on? I did have a Hitachi single pickup system at one time (basically 1/2 a TZ system), but that had no lights. Not cheap but how about an HPI small rotor set up or maybe a powerdynamo/Vape large external flywheel system.
