Well the last bike I had was a 2006 CRF250R and for the 2 years I owned it, it was a great bike and I never had any issues. I also take very good care of my machines and didn't beat her to death either. I am looking at getting another bike and am just curious as to the reliability of the newer models as the older years had some valve issues as everyone is aware of. How are the motors on these bikes in this current generation? It has been years since I have followed this industry and am just getting back into it. Also, I hear the X has a very noticeable decrease in snappiness and overall power from the R. This I am fine with as I am going to be more of a trail guy but my question is, is the detuning of this motor increasing the reliability? I am willing to accept that tradeoff if so. The bike will see a little bit of road use here on the Island. Thanks guys.
