Going From a CRF230F to an XR250--Advice?

Recommended Posts

Preface: I grew up on XRs and love 4-strokes.

I just found a mint condition 2001 XR250 that's street legal, but could easily be converted back to a dirt machine. My biggest gripe with the CRF230F is its poor suspension. I could probably trade the 230 straight up, given the fact that it's a 2008 in great shape.

My question is: would the XR250 be worth the upgrade from the 230? Where's SacTown Old Dude when I need him?:bonk:

A lot of factors to consider here. Depends on what type of riding you do, terrain, etc. Some info on that will help.

Lots of trail riding--sometimes rocky stuff. The occasional log hop and small jump here and there. I've jumped an XR250 before--it did fairly well. Just no doubles or triples. I'm 5'8, 150 lbs, but I found the XR250 to fit pretty well.
