2004 Kawasaki KLR250 Review

2004 Kawasaki KLR250

Modern, fuel-efficient engine and a lightweight chassis…

Dual-purpose motorcycles were introduced in the United States nearly 30 years ago, quickly becoming popular because of their light weight, simplicity and ability to travel off the beaten path. For motorcyclists who are explorers at heart, the 2004 Kawasaki KLR250 still offers those same attributes today.

The KLR250 features an air adjustable front fork and Kawasaki’s UNI-TRAK rear suspension, providing more than nine inches of travel at both ends to smooth the ride. The latter features adjustable spring preload and rebound damping. Helping to maintain good traction on pavement or dirt roads, the KLR250’s wheels are shod with universal tires, while a single front disc brake and rear drum brake help to ensure smooth, powerful stops.

The 2004 Kawasaki KLR250 is powered by a four-stroke, single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine with dual overhead cams operating four valves for superior performance. Double engine counterbalancers keep the powerplant running smooth from idle to redline, and an automatic cam chain tensioner keeps precise timing without maintenance.

The frame for the KLR250 is made of the same high-tech, high-tensile steel used in Kawasaki’s world-class KX motocross machines. A detachable, lightweight aluminum rear subframe simplifies maintenance by providing access to the airbox, carburetor and rear shock.
