Going from a 450 to a 250f?

Recommended Posts

I am starting to do alot more track riding than offroad riding, and want to by a new bike next spring. I am really thinkin about a 06 yzf250 , I have a 04 crf450 now. I figure i can buy a 250F with athena 290 big bore kit for about same price as a new 450. My question is will i be able to adapt to the smaller bike? There is no way I ride the 450 even close to its potential on the track. I'm 26 , 5'10", 220. How many HP does 250f have compared to 450? 250F about 20 pounds lighter, must account for 1 or 2 hp. Any thoughts on Athena big bore kit?

I just went from a 450 to a 250f. The transition was very easy. The lighter weight makes the bike easier to ride. just had to get use to shifting again.
