Track riding xr250?

Recommended Posts

Im going to a practice track for the first time in years with two buddies. It has 20ft table tops and decent sized doubles. Would a stock 2003 xr250r be good and suited for it? Anyone else done this?

My son used to do it all the time on the XR I now ride.  Used to clear huge tabletops with no problem.  I did have to replace the fork seals frequently, though.

 

BTW, I can think of better bikes to do that with. ;)

Maybe a yz125 is better suited. But I'm sure the xr would be plenty of fun. But they are a bit heavier than an MX bike. The KTM would be more of woods oriented.. Never heard of mxc

I believe the 200mxc is equivalent to the current xc lineup which is an off-road bike, with a little more aggressive suspension and such than the xcw... If you go with Ktm get the sx model (they made a 200sx in 03 and 04 and maybe some other years) and now currently make a 150sx. Both the xc, xcw, exc, and Mxc are off-road oriented not track

200mxc would be much more suited to doing that than a XR250. But,,, you could do it on either bike. Just don't come up short on the doubles or overshoot the table top with the XR. It'll hold up just fine but the 200 2 stroke will be much suited to the MX application.
