Trade Opinions

Recommended Posts

I've always wanted to see what the buzz is about with the 200. I have an opportunity to trade my 2004 250 exc for a 2002 200 exc. I primarily ride tight single track these days and weigh 150 in the nude.

Is the 200 a "better" fit for me? Is the weight and size between the 250 and 200 that noticeable? Both bikes are in similar mechanical condition.

Thoughts?

I agree with kxrob, 200's are great. Ask the guy to meet you at a local trail and swap bikes for the ride.

I wouldn't. The 02 had a older chassis, the 04 was a significant improvement over the 02 chassis...

What if the trade were for a similar condition '09 200 XC?

I wouldn't heasitate on the 09 200XC. Again, another chassis improvement but with vastly improved suspension...

what did they change from 04 -07 ?

A lot of the 98-07 parts are interchangeable
