CRF150R/RB or CRF250R

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I am 14, 5"2'.

Currently i have a crf150f and being a 11hp bike the power is quite boring. All my friends are on 250f's and one is buying a yz125 this week.

Im just concerned that going from a 150f with only about 6 months riding experience to a 250r that i probably wouldn't be able to touch on. The other option is a 150R which seem that would fit me but should i get a 150rb or just the small wheel R model?

I had my mind set on a duel exhaust 250r but i dont think it would be much point getting one if its nearly impossible to start and i cant throw around when jumping.

My idea is to get a used 150r/rb for my birthday on the 21/06 then sell it before christmas and get a 250r so its a smaller gap going from 11hp to 36hp, as well as me being tall enough to fit it.

Just on a side note would the 150r have a higher top speed than my 150f?

Thanks, All helpful comments appreciated :lol::ride::lol:

well the 250 will be very big im a little taller then you 5'4 and i can barely touch the ground and it is so heavy and my friends 150r is pretty small so i couldnt decide i went with a 125 much lighter just the powerband is different.

Still if u deciding between the 4T go with the 250 you still probably wont have to much fun on the 150 not much bigger then the 150f

      This continues to be my favorite trail/race weapon!! In our Eastern tight woods, power is not King, handling is. And this thing outhandles them all!!!!
