Here's my dilemma....I'm getting old..(49) ha! Can you help? Seriously, I've built up my 03 CR 250 to fit me. It's got plenty of power, Z-Start Pro, off road suspension mods and other goodies. My problem is that she's light as a feather, which I love, but squirley and a fair more work to ride as compared to my 525 EXC. and the kicker is I'm faster on the big heavy bike which just isn't right! I get worn out hanging onto the smoker and wondered if the addition of a steering damper is the cure all...? I've snugged the headset as much as safe. I've also put 08 CRF 450R forks on it. The bike is well maintained and tight as could be. One comment from a young pro that I know keeps haunting me - " my 300 XC has more power but my 350 XCF is easier to ride." I've read the posts comparing 2T's to 4T's and don't want to start down that path. Just wondering if your CR handles like a stroker but with that fun Braaaaap factor.
