Hawk 250 Enduro Review by Tommy D
My Name is Tommy D
I purchased my Hawk in June of 2016 From 360 power sports in Texas. I payed $1300 Shipped to my door. I never Road a bike before this is first one. So far I read up on it and everything I needed to do to upgrade it to be a little better performance was pretty good. As Soon as i got the Bike Within a week I bought a 16T front Sprocket, Put upgraded carburetor on it, Put LED Rear lights, Hand Guards, Upgraded Shift Lever, NEW OIL INSTANTLY 15w40. I do get some valve tapping And Tried to adjust them down to .03 and .04 But they still tap. I think it’s Just the Bike. It doesn’t cause any performance. Putting the Upgraded CARB AND SPROCKET is a MUST. best thing I did to bike Honestly.
I haven’t had ANY Major issues with Bike EXCEPT the Bike Sucks Trying to Get INTO NEUTRAL. I’m 280lbs stocky guy and with all upgrades and thing’s i have added i still get to 60mph and it has very good Low end Torque. FOR the price of this Bike and probably $100 TO START in upgrades You can’t beat it.. When u get more into the Bike you Can do more Upgrades like exhaust for $160 and digital odometer $100. Over All Amazing Bike and I would recommend this bike for a Beginner or someone who don’t have a lot of money to get a Name brand.

Whats going on man bike looks great i wish i would of got the hawk looks more aggressive but i got the storm 250 basically same bike. However i poped the front tube and had to replace it while doing this i went to put the will back.on and there is no spacer on the side of thesisc brake . Does your hawk have a spacer? If soim pretty sure i lost mine if thats the case where would i find a replacement?
That sucks about the tube but it has happened to all of us. Well my rear popped after a few miles and I was told it was due to the air pressure and no rim lock. I just checked my front tire and I can’t see a spacer without removing the tire. It does appear there is one inside of the hub. I know the rear has a spacer but I’m not 100% sure on the front. Email me at webmaster @ hawk250.com and I’ll send a picture of my front tire.
Doing some research, it does appear there is a spacer. If you look at https://www.txpowersports.com/ricky_power_sports_Hawk_250_Front_rim_p/hs250y-a.100029.02.htm you can try emailing the guys at txpowersports.com and see if they can just help with the spacer. Ask for Manny at Txpowersports and let them know hawk250 sent you and hopefully they can help you out.
Maybe you can help. Used your website to push the nail in the coffin and buy a Chinese bike. Ive rebuilt my honda dirtbike and worked on it many times before this bike. But… this guy is being a constant thorn in my side. Upgraded the carb and got it going with alot of tuning but then fouled a plug. Now it acts like its not getting spark. Any issues youve encountered that can change my mind?
