Re: \'96 RM250
Blksheep, the RM, YZ, CR, KX, KTM... are all fabulous bikes. The engineering is almost identical. For instance they interchange between Kayaba and Showa forks (except for KTM), the carbs are either Mikuni or Keihin, some use one piston ring, other use two, etc... The only major difference is between the riders. Magazines are sponsored by adds placed by the manufacturers. For example, I firmly believe Dirt Bike magazine is owned by Honda. Their editor must be getting a kick-back. I seldom read an article that doesn't favor Honda over all other bikes. That is just not the case. You have a great bike. And so do the rest of you out there.... Don't be fooled.
