I also think white plastic would look dirty real quick.

No, I am just saying, it doesnt look very clean. Do you know what is lighter, a TRX or LT?

The TRX is far supierior to the LT. If you are woried about look's you can clean whith plastic real good with SOS pads & some elbow grease.
The Honda is bullet proff as far as reliability & makes more power than the LT stock to stock, mod to mod..As far as weight I think the LT is a bit lighter at around 320 LB, The earlier TRX is around 360 LB & the latter 88 was around 320 ( same as LT )

+ 1 the TRX 250R is a good bike, fast and less maintenance than the suzuki stock. And it looks a lot cooler

I had an TRX 250R and I can vouche for all the good reviews. Quick, reliable, agile, great bikes. I wish I still had mine. I was young and dumb in high school and sold it for next to nothing so I could buy sterio gear for my car.......one of my premier dumb ass moves.

BTW, my TRX was white and my current LTZ is white and I have yet to encounter anything that Dawn dish detergent and elbow grease couldn't handle. After a good cleaning and drying I soak my bikes down with Meguires Tire Foam. With that on them the little bit of dirt I pick up from the MX Track rinses right off with the water hose. Just don't put it on your seats, you'll wish you hadn't.

the trx does NOT put out more power than the 87+ LT250, stock for stock the LT has more power. the TRX has alot better geometry for suspension ect and IS overall a better bike. the aftermarket for the trx is crazy.

check out the 2 stroke forum everything2stroke.com

the trx can be built ALOT faster but stock it is not. wish I never sold my 88 trx, my buddy is building it into a beast, he has big body PEP shocks on it now amongst other mods... makes me sick lol

07 ltr450 nicely modded

05 660 sold 10-10

04 Lt80 sold 2-19-11

88 trx250r sold 9-10

kasea 90 custom w/trx250r frame and front half
