Bike transferring new bike!

Recommended Posts

So i have an old XR200R old as in 1983 4stroke and my brother is passing down his 2003 yamaha yz250 (2stroke). I've never rode a 2 stroke but am ready to get off the dinosaur of a bike. So any riding tips for the new bike?????

I rode an 01 xr200 until I got a cr250 last year. I got the xr brand new so I rode it for over 10 years. When I got on the cr for the first time I almost crapped my pants. The biggest shock for me was that 1st gear on the cr is like 3rd on the xr. So there's no going slow on the cr. Thing just flat out hauled a$$. The suspension, brakes, power, all of it was just unreal how much better it was. You will love that yz and wonder why you never upgraded before now. Just take it easy, get used to it, get comfortable and start going faster. You'll do fine.

You'll have a blast on the yz. Power, suspension, handling.

Cool thanks guys. Any clutching difference?:huh:

Clutch would be the same. All you have to do is pull it in. Just adjust it to your old feeling and you'll be good. The pull could be a little harder. It's a race bike.
