Project 2006 KX 250 – Wiseco Performance Products

by Charles Owens on 10/16/2012

The guys at Wiseco Performance Products picked up a used 2006 Kawasaki KX 250 to illustrate the cost favorability of a late-model 2-stroke for track and trail riding, as well as ease of ownership.

They went through the Wiseco catalogs and pulled parts for the project, including their Racers Choice Piston Kit, Forged Aluminum Clutch Basket, Plates, Springs and finished it off with a top end gasket kit.

While the bike was apart they splurged and had the frame dusted and baked with some fresh silver powder coat.

Beautiful Machine

Below is a list of parts included in the build. This was not intended to be a ‘budget’ build, but for the cost involved it very well could be. Even including the ‘extras’ (powder coat, wheels, etc.) the build price was just over $2,800. Below is a parts list used for the project, as well as suggested retail prices.

This is a beautiful machine, built to spec, for much less than the cost of a new bike. What do you think?
