1979 Kawasaki KLX 250

condition: fair
fuel: gas
transmission: manual

Looking to sell my 79' KLX 250. Bought it the spring and have worked myself up to a total cost of $3000. It's a good bike but still needs work on the engine.

New parts that I've put into it

-Brand new rear wheel (rim, hub, spokes, nipples, protector bead)
-new tires front and back
-new sprockets and chain
-new chain guard and chain guide
-new fork seals and oil
-new fork boots
-new air filter and air box parts
-carb kit (carb still needs help)
-new gaskets on top end, minus the head base gasket, still leaks
-new seat cover
-new used gas tank
-new used triple tree
-comes with extra throttle grip, spark plugs

Cons
-currently leaks gas out the carb
-leaks oil out the cylinder base and oil filter case
-striped screw on oil filter case, which is causing a major leak. Was opening to re adjust the o ring, and striped the screw.
-needs start fluid to start in the cold
-handlebar has a slight bend

It's a fun bike. Great single track and fire road bike.
