I know that this is a open ended question but... Locally there is a 09 250XC-W and a 06 300XC-W. Both are in my price range and both look to be in good shape. I was originally looking at a 300 as I had heard (have been doing a lot of reading) that it can be built to more of a torque (ie) bike. I am looking for an easier transition to two-smokes from my XR400. Thoughts?
