Ok here is my situation. I am 27 yrs old 5'8 and 200lbs. I haven't ridden in 12 years. My previous bike was a RM80.
I want to buy a 4 stroke bike. I fit well on the XR250 but I am afraid it may not have the power I am looking for. I am considering the following 3 bikes:
1) '02-'04 XR250
2) '02-'04 XR400
3) 04-'05 CRF250X or R
I have heard that the XR400 is extremely reliable and a great bike. Does it have the explosive power I had on my RM 80? Do any of the new CRF's have that type of power.
I do not care how fast a bike is top end, only how fast it is off the start.
What is the maintanence difference between XR400 and CRF 250?
I do not know how to work on the bikes so I prefer something with good power but not high maintainence like my RM 80.
I am not planning to race, only trail riding in Ohio, Michigan, WV.
I look forward to your feedback.
