The only thing I can really hang my hat on is that it is well documented that Honda never liked 2 strokes. And since 1997, the CR250R never made many changes for the better. It even cost them their star rider. It seems like OEM's are about 4 years ahead ... more »

Well said. I also like having supermoto options for the street. So there is another silver lining.

After a string of RM's, Suzuki directly affected my life and pushed me over to KTM. I paid full MSRP ($6600) for a 2011 KTM250SX when Yamaha was giving away brand new 2008 YZ450F's for $4100 out the door. I'll go to TM, Beta, Gas Gas, anyone. I'll rebuild ... more »

Are people who want to discuss real racing less intelligent if they keep posting in two stroke threads that they are tired of the community arguing about again and again? Pro fisher.

Excuse me, but not having a option of a 2014 RM250, CR250R, or KX250 does affect me. It directly affects me as I had cash in hand in 2008 awaiting a new generation RM250 to buy.

The reason why there is "US vs. Them" is because the 2 stroke is the superior power plant. Fact. It is way more efficient and way less complicated. Fact. If the entire MX scene was four stroke, and someone had "invented" the two stroke in 1997, the entire ... more »

Isn't the frame coated with something? I wondered if aluminum brightener would go through the coating or not?

Can someone point me to a source of info that kind of glosses through the evolution of forks? I'm mainly interested in the Showa and KYB stuff that the jap bikes evolved through the 80's-90's and 2000's. Just wondering what stuff worked and what didn't. ... more »

Plus, dealers don't care if you are being responsible or not. They don't even care if the bike gets repo'd in 3 months. So we have clearly established that people going to the dealerships aren't dealing in cash. I'm still curious how many people are ... more »

Thanks. What is the max pressure you allow before starting to freak out?

Do you pressurize it to 50, then add heat? Or are you just capping the ends and the heat builds to 50 psi on it's own?

I think it looks fine, albeit the tail section looks like a CRF or KXF now.
