    Tire problem

    Ive had to go up to 70-80 pounds before and smack it with a rubber mallot on the face hitting the tire outward - Sedona's were the TIGHTEST tires i have ever mounted

    What's a CRF 450 X like in the woods?

    I came off a dual sport 250 that is actually 15 pounds heavier than the x -the x feels light to me, especially the front wheel when you give it some gas. We ride tight singletrack and some double track and forest roads I thought it was a pretty good woods bike till I rode my buddies KTM's (big mistake) that 2 stroke 300 is a WOODS BIKE if ever there was one. Limited budget - got a great deal on the x - love the power ! It does a little better on the more open trails and I can see where this would be a blast in the desert till the headshake starts and requires a steering damper.

    Are 98 dr250r capable of jumping jumps

    Not afraid to flog my DR - 94 with very similar suspension. I have got to say. Not great on a moto track - Suzi is not so fond of big air. Now take her in the woods and she is a beast

    Other high mileage DR's?

    94 dr250S with 26,500 miles - never been in the motor, valves staying put, oil changes every 1500-2000 miles with Rotella T6, owned the bike for 6 years bought it with about 10,000 miles on the clock, Suzi used to do lots of commuting- but it is just quicker and easier to drive the car - she was relegated to pure dirt bike duties with lower gearing and full on knobs and pretty much goes where all the KTM's go. then a month ago I pulled the trigger on a Honda CRF 450x - talk about different ends of the spectrum Suzi (tame as can be), CRF (fire breathing dragon) Sadly suzi just sits there with a lonely look on her face whispering you used to love me...
