Whats up, hawk 250 hardcore riders!. Last week I shared a post about another user who painted his hawk orange and it inspired another user to do the same. Well he sure didn’t waste no time getting it done =), Checkout his comments below and pictures of upgraded hawk 250, its looking so good. I love seeing all the different things people are doing with their hawks.

“Painted the green plastics yesterday. Got halfway through putting them on today when USPS showed up with the exhaust.
It sounds awesome for a 250cc bike. I had a ktm 640 and it sounds identical. Nice bark to it.
I’d recommend that pipe for sure. Only issues with install were:
The flange coming off the head has to be notched for the stud spacing. Quick cut off wheel and were golden. ( You can see my hawk 250 exhaust guide on this, I just used a drill bit to make the whole bigger which is another option)
Also, it discolored within 60 seconds of idling. Looks good regardless.
Paint: 2 cans, Used 4 light coats of Rustoleum 7555 Safety Orange and 4 coats of gloss clear”
