    hey man - no offense, cause we all start somewhere ( i started on a DS80). But you're coming from a crf230 playbike and going to a full on race machine... frankly, its not going to matter which bike you pick - it'll be night and day.. go for the one that looks the baddest... and we know which one that is..

    Red Rider - Going Green?

    Yah it is.. i've ridden an 05 crf250f and had a blast on it.. it all comes down to the lighter weight I guess.. i just have more fun and feel faster. Its worked for me in the enduro arena, i ride a '07 ktm400 instead of the 450 or 525, and i'm getting much better results. personal preference i guess.. i'm sure i'll always miss the hit of the 450 but if can save some endurance and have more fun, thats what its about when you hit your mid 30's - imo

    Red Rider - Going Green?

    You might be right, maybe it was the crf450 they thrashed on the fork. I have thought about the suzuki for the same reasons - still some thinking to do. Good thing its winter here..maybe i find a used '08 by march

    Red Rider - Going Green?

    Hey Crusty, found this interesting..i'm in the exact situation.. years on crf450's vet racing and now looking to go with a kx250f, and race it in the 450 class. I'm 35 and I realize i'm faster on a 250f and hey its more fun! I can flick it around and my arms don't tire nearly as fast.. how often was I really wide open on the 450? Plus villipoto had the fastest lap times recently on a 250f OVERALL.. looking forward to the switch.. But i keep hearing how the kx250f is all midrange-top, so i'm still tossed up between the crf and the kxf... can always add more lowend, and I heard the '08 crf250 forks blow (mx action mag)
  9. Those are the exact reasons i've been considering it. Funny, i'm starting to miss my '92 kx250 when i saw what was probably an 06 kx250 2stroker at the track. But just a memory.. i'm probably going to go with a 250f

    08 kx250f modded her a litte :)

    you just answered my question: http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=552242
  11. cool - good info.. thx guys
  12. really... so does it feel a lot lighter?
  13. I'm 35, done racing the occasional MX, now only do occasional hare scramble and play ride MX.. I sold my '05 crf450r (great bike) and was thinking instead of another 450 of going down to a crf250/kx250f.. seems like it may be more fun..throw it around, etc.. don't really need the 450 power so why muscle it around anymore... BUT!! I do not want to regret this decision, maybe i'll miss the power? but the 250f professional MX laptimes like villipoto are sometimes only a cpl seconds or less behind the carmichaels... so ?? Anyone done this downsize?

    Preventive care on a XC-F-W

    he's a ktm rep All 2stroke manuals say replace piston after I think it's more like 30-40 "RACE" hours, and they rev like that... of course preventive maintenance could say - you know what, just in case, so ktm doesn't get a bad name, why don't you replace your motor every 20 hrs, that way, no ktm will ever have blown a motor! I would just forget his comment. I'm in the market for a 250xcf-w after owning a crf450 and it's not a concern of mine at all.

    Another 'which model ktm' question

    thanks for all the feedback. I didn't mean to insinuate that only MX is dangerous, I grew up riding woods,etc.. as well as MX, and they are both extreme sports, and I think HS guys are some of the toughest riders. I just meant i'm tired of having to clear a triple just to be competitive, there's very little room for error - not to mention at 34 I definately am not as fearless as I used to be so i have to build up the guts every lap to clear an 80ft triple, kinda takes the fun out of it. I'm really liking the 250 xcf-w... I do like the KTM200, and having grown up 2stroke - after owning my crf450 i'm kinda sold on the 4strokes...maintenance blows but I do like the motors.. Thanks for all the info.
