Switch from 08 yz450 to ktm 200 exc

Title says it all. Just wondering what to expect. First time riding a two stroke. First bike was a 250f then I moved to the 450. Any tips on handling a 2 stroke for the first time? I ride trails. Occasionally I like to hop on a track.

Make sure you have the right springs in it. They come stock set up for a light rider. Also you need to keep your speed up to compensate for the lack of four stroke torque. That's why it's such a "woods weapon", it's easy to ride fast.
