This bike raced the Mint 400 twice back in the day.The Frame has been modified along with the swingarm. It features JRM shocks, heavier springs in the forks, uni air filter, aluminum bars, Scott grips, AirCone Pipe, Motoplat coil, Dunlops (front & rear), Barnett clutch plates, RK chain, Sprocket Specialist (front & rear), Wiseco piston 2nd over and AMS Plastic.

Did you know that the 1972 Suzuki TM-250J Champion was nick named the “Champion” because of Joel Robert who rode his works 1971 RH250 to an MX world championship? The five speed TM 250 was actually based on Suzuki’s enduro model. The original plastic and tank was Suzuki (Aspen) yellow, however we like Klaus’s white scheme! The TM 250 was replaced in 1976 with the Suzuki RM250.

    I am struggling with a piston change on my 1972 TM 250?
    The piston I removed & the new piston have peg positions that slide over the inlet ports??
    Can this be correct? Please help.

    Can you send me a copy of the frame mods for the 1972 TM 250. A buddy of mine bought one and is restoring it to race. Thank you.
