250x is really jsut a 300ex with different crank and bore, otherwise, if it looks nice, not too much rust, check it out, look under plastics etc. yes the 250x and 300ex are great quads with tons of low-end, i can pull wheelies with a little tug in 4th now with a pipe, and 1 2 and 3 are a breeze to shift through the gears when "wheelieing" otherwise good size power and great for all-around riding, also it is open for mods, it is easy to find anyhting you want for it from Exhuast pipes, to jet kits to plastics, to a-arms and shocks, its all possible, how much is it? make sure not too much wear on the engine, if could be going, check the oil, test ride it etc

my x's do great wheelies just like 300exrider said but i wouldnt try anything really wild due to the fact i saw a kid take too big of a jump and the entire frame snapped at the joint right above the front shocks, needless to say his frame was trashed, so i wouldnt be trying nack-nacks and the bigger stunts or you might trash your bike

i just bought a 87 250x and it is an awesome quad for the price and its in perfect condition pretty much except for a couple cracks in the plastic and the original tires are a little worn.. it looks like a 2 yr old quad instead of a 16 yr old quad.. it runs good.. theres quite a few parts available for it.. and of course honda is adaptable/interchangeable so u can switch with like 400ex a arms and such...

Hey dude You meant get a 250x Or a 300ex right. If the kid trys to wheelie a 250r with not to much riding experiance he is probably going to bust the grab bar and end up on his asssss which wont feel to good. Go with the 300Ex , It is very modable and a fun bike to ride! [img]images/graemlins/givemebeer.gif[/img]

i dont think 400exman understands thats all, landing on your grab bar wont do anything, its there to keep you from bustin your tail light and exhaust, now fallen on your ass does hurt
