As I am waiting for my tax return to get here, I was pretty much set on getting a 450(CRF450X, WR450 or KTM, not sure yet). After checking around for pricing, I ended up to a shop where the salesman was an die hard enduro guy and he actually advised me to look into the newer 250(he was suggesting the CRF250X or WR250, he sells yami and Honda). Less torque but plenty of power, less tiring ans easier to ride he mentionned, easier for single track(where I will be). My concern is I weight 255lbs + gears, is a 250 really enough to haul my ass around or I better look at the 450 series? I will be doing mainly single track with the odd enduro and some trail riding. I expect to redo the suspension on whatever I will buy. Anyone had the same issue and went for the 250 or 450? Thanks!!!
