How old are you? How much riding experience do you have? You are pretty small at 110 lbs. so I would have to say a 250 4 banger or a 125 2 smoker. Unless your 13 yrs., and a lot of riding experience and getting ready for a growth spurt. Then I would say fofitty, cause you always get used to the power. At least I do. I have seen a 12 year old on a 450r laying it flat over doubles on a track :ride: , so anything is possible. :thumbsup:

110 pounds, you just have even muscle mass to throw a 450. get a 250 your fore arms will thank you!!

110 lbs......250....I am 145 lbs and get thrown around my 450's although I can handle them. Just not as well as I can my 125 or a 250f.

I have a crf 250x and a wr 450....no question...go with the 250. With proper technique you will be able to ride much better and in control. At 110 lbs controlling the 450 power on any kind of climb will be VERY difficult with your ability and weight. Additionally, the 450 on tight trails truly is a handful even for very experienced riders. When I am riding tight stuff with switchbacks and off cambers I ride the 250 or my KTM. I am 6'4'' 225lbs.

With just over a year of experience remember...you gotta go slow to go fast!!!
