Which Motocross Bike is Easiest to Customize?

Dec 28, 2019 12:00:00 PM / by Cam

Looking to transform your dirt bike into a worthy track contender?

The 2017 Kawasaki KX250F dirt bike customized is just what the doctor ordered.

For bikers, a huge part of owning a motorcycle or a dirt bike is the ability to customize it to fit your needs. Chassis looking a bit lackluster? Add a new coat of paint and some pinstripes. Sick of those stock saddlebags? Remove ‘em. Need to up your game on the race track? Now we’re talkin’.  

You paint the house the color you like, even if the neighbors think it’s an eyesore. You redesign your kitchen so that it looks more like you’re on an Italian vacation all the time, even though the pizza you make in there taste less like Italy and more like cardboard. You buy a phone case for your phone that shows who you are, you put a bumper sticker on your bike  to tell the world how you feel, and the list is ongoing.

Motocross racers are constantly upgrading their bikes to keep up with today’s competing MX talent (and, let me tell you, there’s A LOT of talent out there). From adjusting the bike’s suspension, to swapping out pipes, to installing a new chain and sprocket, dirt bike customization is about as inevitable as a rainy day in Seattle, Washington. 

Take the 2017 Kawasaki KX250F, for example, which is already a stellar performance ride. In stock condition, it’s a beast of a machine; but, a few tweaks here and there to improve power and handling will make it an unstoppable force on the track.

Extremely versatile, this Kawasaki bike is well-suited for racers of all styles and pedigrees.

Still, while this particular bike boasts more AMA National Motocross wins than any other bike in its class, there are a few ways you can customize your dirt bike if you want to cross the finish line before your opponents.

Fortunately, Kawasaki designed the KX250F to be extremely receptive to motor adjustments. They also made sure riders would be able to change out the brakes, bars and controls, the fuel system, and the body of the bike should they choose to do so. From graphic kits and trim decals, Kawasaki covered all the bases.
