CRF250F vs. Road

Recommended Posts

alrighty, i gotta 250r that i like to ride trails with, to get to my freinds (the trails) i have to take backroads for about 6 miles. i have a few Questions...

If i put it in 5th gear and Barly touch the throttle for the hole 6 miles..( so pacticly go 40mph the hole way in 5th gear)

will i overheat?

will i kill the valves?

should i pull over and let it rest a bit?

is it alright to keep it at reaaaallly low RPMs in the same gear for awhile?!

thanks, if you have anyother comments refering to this, shoot!

well i do know that you bike will not overheat.

you dont have to let it rest

if you are at a low rpm, your valves wont suffer too much.

i ride my 250r long distances too, and it is fine
