Don't get a 250 4 stroke, get a 125 2 stroke. 250F's are high maintenance and love to blow up if you ride them hard. If you see much rev limiter at all, they're a ticking time bomb. Get a 125, it'll be similar to what you have but with quite a bit more power and be cheaper to buy, fix and maintain not to mention lighter and handle better and have the same power.

So a 125 has the same power as a yz250 or a cr250r

No the two you just mention are 250 2 strokes, i think people thought you where talking about 250 four strokes which are comparable to 125's. Don't get a 250 2 stroke , get a 125 2 stroke , any brand is good YZ,KX,RM,CR,SX

It's too big of a step, if you go in size order you'll progress smoother and faster than riding a bike that rips your arms off. A cr85 isn't the most powerful 85 as it is so its an even bigger gap.

A 250 two stroke is a bit too much of a gap for coming off a 85. If you think you can handle it, then go for it. The worst that can happen is you have to re-sell it after the first ride.

I made that same stupid mistake of going from my cr85 to a cr250... Stupidest thing I've ever done. Just go to a 125 and don't get a big head about the 250. You'll hate it I guarentee it... Just save your time and money and go to a 125 of any brand until you put atleast 2 years of hard riding on it before moving to a 250 2 stroke. But as ktm jake said, the 4 strokes are just too much maintenance. 125 is your best bet for sure!
