I'm re-posting this in this forum because no one in the Honda forums seems interested I can get a 2004 CRF250 for about $1400. I'm wondering if I should jump on it or pass. I'm new to motorcycles and perfectly happy with my YZ250F, but I'd like to get another bike to have around. Then some of my friends who can't afford a bike could ride with me or maybe I could get my brother into it... The point is I don't NEED it so I'm happy to pass if it's no good. I've heard that Honda thumpers are hard on valves. This bike will probably never get raced and only ridden of trails or forest roads, will it still wear the valves quickly? Is there anything in particular I should look for if I go to check it out? It seems like a really good price so I'm thinking there might be something wrong with it. And just out of curiosity, how does it compare to my YZ? Thanks!
