Movin on up

So ive bin riding my 85 bigwheel for 6 months now and im getting tired of it and im looking to move up to a 250 4 t. Is the riding much different? Are jumps easier to clear? But mainly will i have fun?

Thanks ,flickin.

get a 125.

a lot of it depends on how big you are, in both height and weight. A 250f is a full size bike and a lot bigger, i know when i made the switch i had some trouble on tight ruts and corners. Switching to the bigger bike also made it harder to ride out swaps, front wheel washes, ect for a little while. Jumps should be easier to clear. Then again as long as they aren't too big a good rider on a 85 should be able to clear just about everything on a track. If your not to big and having trouble getting speed for jumps i would suggest staying on the 85 for a bit, it will make you a better rider and faster when you do move up.

hey i love my kx 100 im 200 pounds and im fine on it

I think staying on a small bore 2 stroke is smart as well.

I am rather large on my bike now and i have heightened it alot and am not enjoying the 2 stroke way of life, i had fun on my friends 4t 150 made me want change

I went from a 85 2t small wheel to a 250 ft and its alot easier than you would expect of course your height and weight considering, if you think your ready i say go for it as long as your comftorable, I've improved hugely on my 250 over the 85.=

Ask someone at a local track if they'll let you do a lap on a 250f personally im short and skinny and feel the 250f to be a hog! Id go with a 125/150, there harder to ride fast but once you get the hang of it you feel like your hauling even if your not

You might be fine but you bike is crying. HAHA

when i was 14 and 9 months i was on my 85 bigwheel, and all my mates had 250f so i wanted one. my parents said nah dont think your ready but i said i was. so we go to look at this bike and we end up bying it, and i couldnt even start it. i dropped it the first time i threw my leg over it ( i was about 5'4 then ) but i could ride it OK. my parents said, we arent buying another bike so either adapt to it if your ready like you say you are, or sell it.

i wanted to prove i was ready so i would practice everyday for like a month. now 6-7 months later, i am a way better rider, i clear every jump infront of my, i drop the bike into every rut, and i smash through berms with so much confidence. it was the best move ive ever made to get that bike. plus i have built so much muscle from it.

i think you will love the bike, depending on your weight and height. but then again im only like 5'6 or 5'7 and about 135 lbs. get a yz250f though. :busted:

Yea i dont get everyday maybe every sunday MAYBE i would really like to but i cant
