Too big for x-lite??

Recommended Posts

I am about to pull the trigger on a demo TC 250. Before I do I need input. I am 205 lbs without gear. Am I too heavy? Bike does have a full ackropovich exhaust and carb work done it. I know I will need new springs for suspension. Bike will be used for hare scrambles and practice bike. What do you think?

Thanks

spring it appropriately and go ride, you'll be able to ring it's neck and that will be a ton of fun!

I have that bike and weigh about that. Works fine. As Dude said it will need stiffer springs to be 100%.

The TC250 will most likely feel big in comparison. Everytime I ride a Gas Gas I feel cramped at 6'2" 230lbs

My gasser has a tall seat and lower pegs on it. Other than being a little cramped, I love the gasgas. Bike turns like no other bike! I had a WR 300 and miss the roominess for my 6' 4" frame. That's mainly why I want the TC, to give my knees a break.
