Jeff Ward’s second AMA 250cc Supercross championship was won on this KX250 SR in 1987 using the number 3. During the 1987 season Jeff Ward and Hondas Rick Johnson were involved in a very heated battle for the championship. Jeff prevailed over the heavily favored Honda rider and his 4th AMA Championship was won. The bike was based from a production KX model featuring KYB works suspension, magnesium front wheel hub, reinforced swinarm area and KMC developed porting specs along with a Pro Circuit exhaust pipe. Jeff used the number three and the year ending seven to continue using the lucky numbers within the Kawasaki Team, threes and sevens.
