    230 the right bike?

    I read a briefing that stated congress was going to ban it in 2006.
  2. I am just moved to an area where I can ride again. I am thinking about purchasing a crf230 but I am not sure if it is the right bike. I would prefer something with a little more power like the kdx200. I know the 2 strokes will be banned this year and I really dont want to hassle with mixing the oil. I cant seem to find an xr250 in good condition and I dont want to drop the 6k for a cr250x. Do you guys think I will be happy with the power of a 230 if I re-jet it, take the baffle out and put a new pipe on it? The area I am at is very hilly and I dont want to run out of power in the middle of a hill. Keep in mind that I will be riding trails, light jumping so I wont need gobs of HP....
