Long read below-can skip to the bottomNew guy here, and a new rider to moto. I got a CR250 last summer after i blew out my ACL riding downhill. There is a small "kids" track by my house that i ride it at and it was all fun. This year after having my knee fixed, i am trying to spend more time riding moto-and most recently started taking it to real tracks. (im local to Englishtown in NJ) The bike is a 2003 CR250 with some mods but nothing crazy-it was tuned and ridden mostly at southwick (and rides like such)The backstory is that I had no dirtbike expierience prior to buying my dirtbike. I youtube'd how to ride a dirtbike, and then went up to massachusets and purchased it-and rode it for the first time in the kids backyard. (i was shitting my pants as i putted around in 1st gear) I kept learning it on the streets by my house and eventually kinda got the hang of it. I have a pretty good idea on what to do, and how to do it for most of what I am trying to do. (I cant though)I feel that it is relevant to the discussion to note that I am a professional Downhill racer, and I travel the entire USA racing my bike-so I am not hopeless for learning how to ride a dirtbike. Although I do think i may have bitten off more than i can chew. So far I can jump it very well (30-40 foot tables) I can level it out in the air with the gas/brakes (usually stall it with the brake though) I can ride it decently on flat ground.My big problem is that I cannot control the damn bike when it decides to wake up. If i stand up i almost always whiskey throttle and it ends in 1 of 3 scenarios. I get lucky and it runs out of power and i can get back on the front, it loops out and i fall on my ass, or i catch it early enough and pound the rear brake. (stall and fall)This event happens in all of the following situations. landing most jumps when i need to hold the bars tighter, any whoopset or roller set, "rythem sections" and 2 opposite corners in a row. I know it will happen, i try to avoid it-but i cannot handle the kick of this bike. As you can imagine, after landing a jump into a corner, the last thing you want is the bike redlined trying to go faster.I was hoping somebody on here would have any advice-even if unconventional, on how to calm the bike down and make it more managable-the speed and air doesnt bother me, and the sliding corners doesnt either, but what i cannot get over is how the bike wants to ride wide open all the time, and i cannot just grab a fist full into all these sections with my current skill level. My idea was if i could get a thumb throttle like a utility quad, so i could still hold the bars and just move my thumb (easy to avoid whiskey throttle) or if there was a way to tune it down. Ideally i would have a 4 stroke but the dirtbike i got was the result of a series of events that worked financially with a DH for moto trade-so I did not have a choice.If this was too long for you-basically can you cut the balls off of a 250 2 stroke?
