2007 Baja Motorsports X250
I got it to work, but I like to fix things so it's OK for me
Bought 2 for my wife and I.
Would not run at altitude, no jets avail from manufacturer, found jet at moto shop and then worked well -- large service fee.
2 flats on each bike.
Manufacturer did not put tubes in the bikes -- my expense.
Starter switch intermittent.
1 tire cracked.
Wires broke; plastic defective, only 1-5 strands at spots. Caused no start until traced and found.
Both bikes leaked oil.
Most frame nuts fell off on: exhaust, rear axle.
Swing arm axle bolt broke.
Shock adjustment knob fell off.
Won't go into neutral sometimes.
Weak handlebars bent.
Shifter fell off.
Foot brake pad fell off.
Frame bolts fell off (had to remove and locktight all non-engine bolts).
Rear axle bolt fell off, jacked tire, wrecked chain and rear brake disk.
Only 0.66 gal gas tank, short range.
Chain fell off.
Chain rubber pads to stop rattles fell/tore off -- bad design.
Right footrests used on both sides, swings back on right and forward on the left.
With the right jets, it starts right up.
Parts diagrams are good, and part sourcing through Gardner Inc is excellent. It's best to be a mechanic to keep this bucket of loose bolts together. Price is very low, and it's amazing what they can deliver for this price. It's just that something that is 95% functional may not get you anywhere when nuts and bolts continually fall off.
China metals are weak/brittle. Nut bolt tolerances are poor. Welds are suspect and inconsistent. Design structural margins are minimal given that they copied Japan, then undersized components. The copy is somewhat close, but many parts are not interchangeable.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I almost didn't make it back once because of the small tank. (always have a speedometer)

Did the jets work better than stock (added hp?)? Do you know the part number? I need more hp on this thing.

It said that it leaked oil... Where did it leak oil, because mine lets the oil through the cylinder somehow, and gets burned through the engine, and it smokes like crazy... I have honed out the cylinder, but it did nothing.

You should check the piston rings. If the rings are bad, it could cause it to burn oil.
