I have never ridden 2t dirt-bike , i start my dirt bike adventure this year with a 4t yz450 and i love this sport. now am interested to test 2t cross and want to use it for enduro and MX. are this bikes ( yz250) good for both enduro and MX use !? i heard that yz250 is the same from 2006 up to 2016 and have no change . what about honda cr250r !? which year and model of this two brand worth owning !?
I utilize a Baja Light Kit but am looking to add a rear brake light in addition to just the turn signals which come along with the Baja kits. Theoretically, can I utilize a Tusk rear fender brake light in conjunction with the Baja system. It seems to me that I would have to employ two different switching systems on my handlebars to allow this as well as wire the rear fender brake light in a different way. Am I just a little crazy in the attempt of something like this?
This comes from a fairly frustrating position after looking at various bikes for weeks on end... I am 5 foot 4, which when looking at off-roading trail riding suitable bikes limits me somewhat (or it did to begin with).
To begin with I looked (or tried for want of a better phrase) at Gas Gas Pamperas or CRF230s. Pamperas appear very few and far to come by (UK) and the CRF230s are either a lot of money for what you get, are stolen (not interested), or non runners... Plus, my worry with these is that I would quickly get too comfortable on them and want something a little bigger again...
At the moment I have an XR125, which has been an excellent bike for me to learn on - both on and off road. But now I find myself wanting to challenge myself a little more off-road and subsequently need something with a little more go.
I've come here looking for ideas.
I don't want something new/expensive given that it is simply a bike I will be learning on. It also needs to be 'easier to lower' or low enough for me already (I believe my max seat height is between 34-35 inch seat height), not too maintenance heavy, and not too intimidating - whilst being capable of trail riding and being fun.
Am I asking for too much?

Hi everyone I just purchased a 1986 XL600r that was running ok when I bought it two days ago, but would bog down around 1/4 throttle. I drove it around some yesterday staying off the throttle, and she did fine , but not running quite right. At one point after shutting her down in town, had a real hard time (10 minutes) trying to restart her. I finally got her started and got her home. I tried to fire her up the next day in order to try and tune the carb for the altitude Im at.
Long story short, she just wouldnt start (wheras before it was very easy to start) - almost like she wasnt getting spark. Well I pulled the plug wire boot and the wire was completely disconnected from the coil! I figured this wire having been super loose while riding was likely the poor throttle issue I was having. Well reconnected to the plug wire to what I think was the coil, then pulled the plug to check that it was super black and sooty. I replaced with a new plug and.... still nothing. Not even close to turning over.
Whats going on here? My next step is replacing the ignition coil and wire with a new one, but anything else I'm missing here? Thanks.
edit: this bike had a new stator installed last summer.
I have a 2002 Honda XR250R and I love the bike but the gas tank but, let's be honest, it is quite bland. The seat also dips quite low in comparison to the top of the gas tanks so cornering is more difficult compared to other bikes. I was wondering if there is any street bikes (such as the newer xr250 or the cr230) who's gas tank and seat is interchangeable with my older XR. I have looked at aloop kits and such but they are just too expensive. Not the older XR has a single beam to the handle bars while the newer Hondas have a "double wishbown" frame style.
Thanks so much
