XR WHEELIES

Recommended Posts

I've been out of the sport for a couple years and I'm too old and fat to ride CR250's any more so I'm considering a used XR400 and was wondering how they wheelie and how they hill climb compared to a newer 250 2 stroke ?

A CR250 will never out climb a XR400 and a Xr400 will be a hell of a lot eaiser to wheelie on even though they r both pretty capable of wheeeling

XR400's are great for riding wheelies - - good torque for getting it up, and good engine braking when you back off the throttle to keep you from flipping over (otherwise you need a good touch with the rear brake). Another benefit of the XR400 is the slope of the seat. It's not as flat as an MX bike, and that helps keep your but from slipping backwards when you get to the balance point. Go for it! :cry:
