New woods/trail bike.

Recommended Posts

I'm needing some help on a decision. I currently own a 2005 crf 250 r, and all I do is trail ride, cut very sharp corners in low gears, cross trees, and maneuver through terrain that my handlebars don't fit through. I am 6' tall, 210 lbs and have been riding for only about 8 months. I've been looking into the KTM's but need some advice. I like the weight of my current bike, but not much else for the woods.

Yamaha 2007+WR250F, electric start, good suspension, cut 3/4 inch off each side of the bars. You'll be good to go!

A gearing change or switch over to a CRF250X cam could help you greatly. As noted earlier, narrow you bars to snake between the trees. IMO, offing your R for a WR-F of the same displacement is not much of a change unless you're really excited about e-start or have stalling issues (a flywheel weight will help you there).
