Interesting comparison from 1980 of the XT250G and KL250A3 (not KLX)...

Basically, Two Wheels felt that the KL was the better of the two.

The XT is described as "ruggedly handsome" (like me  Wink) but "frankly, a disappointment" (unlike me).

It's "too soft everywhere" the writer complains, and he also says that it's a bit tricky to start. The frame, steering, suspension and brakes are also criticised.

The KL on the other hand gets quite a bit of praise, and is described as "one of the best dual purpose bikes on the market."

Brakes are "excellent," and off road handling was also highly regarded.

So there you go!

Your a long time dead, so get out there and enjoy yourself while you still can :-) would loved to have been able to race vintage enduro bikes in Victoria, but sadly that as yet has not happened, so many blokes would have loved to be able to race, owell shit loads of us still have the memory's of racing enduro bikes back in the late 70's and 80's, time to move on to other things I guess :-) but if racing classes for vinduro bikes start then I will dust off my bike and be out there racing my old bike as that is what it was made for ( Racing )
