I was looking at this kit for my 08 TRX250EX:

I know, if I wanted something fast, I should have gotten something bigger, but this is more about having fun and making it mine own. I want to do a few minor mods just to have fun.

My question is whether or not it's really worth it. My main concern is maintaining reliability. I have heard things can get iffy if you start messing around with the exhaust and jetting it. This is a weekend rider, so the last thing I want is to create any issues.

Secondly, regarding the exhaust, I don't want something obnoxious, I want it to be close to stock as possible. I've heard some quads with louder exhausts, and it's just ridiculous - no offense if anyone runs them here, I just simply don't like it. It sounds like a fart cannon on a 4 banger.

Lastly, would the stage 2:

Be a better buy? It doesn't have as much, and it's a slip-on exhaust instead of a full exhaust.


Thanks.

I would go with the second one. The first one you wil have to crack the case to install the clutch kit. Bot th look great. You won't lose any reliability from adding the exhaust, intake, and jets. You will make it breathe better.

Agreed^^^^^^^ the exhaust, jet kit and filter will wake them up pretty good

Thanks for the input, I kinda figured the Stage 2 would be enough for what I want to do. I just wanted to keep it simple but get it breathing a little better.

I'll probably get it in a few weeks after I get a chance to take it out riding.

In regards to the jetting, is that pretty straight forward? Do they give you instructions so you know how to match it to your mods?

Skin Rock> Have you bought that kit yet? I'm curious to get your take on it. I'm making the leap over from the 2 stroke jet ski world to quads. Nabbed my wife an 06 250ex. If you bought the kit and got it put together how do you like it? did it make a noticeable gain and where, top end or bottom end?

Thanks,
