In some ways it's a big deal and in some ways it's nothing at all.

Physical size is almost identical, so no big change there.

As you know, it's all about the power. The big deal is that you will not have to scream it as the 250 actually has some torque.

You never mentioned how old you are or how long you've been riding, or even where you will be riding/racing, so all I can say is take it easy the first time you go riding.

if youre a solid B class racer or above on your 125, then i wouldnt think it should be too bike of a deal regardless of size, unless youre under 100 lbs...but if you just backyard ride or whatever on your 125, it will be huge and i dont think you will like the 250.

if you ride your 125 on the pipe and are a mid/front pack c rider and weigh 130 lbs or more, and you think your 125 is alil low on power than the 250 2t should be fine....if you just kinda ride every once in awile and think your 125 has good power then a 250 2t will kill you.....hope this helps
