I'm a little dumbfounded right now. I met my buddy out at the track today and we did laps on each others bike. He had a 2004 CR250 vs. my 02 YZ426. First off he had really REALLY stiff suspension. His is set up to do freestyle. I'm not sure if that affects cornering and going around berms or not, but the thing cornered like a truck. I had to lean WAY further down to get traction in the berms and stick my leg way out too. then there was the powerband. I haven't ridden a 250 2-stroke in a while, but that just sucked. It was shaky and my hands went numb after like 4 laps. Anyway.....question is.......has anybody else noticed their "vastly heavier" bike turns better than lighter bikes? Or is this just me? Let me know your opinions.
