2 transmission failures on my yz450. Scared me so much I sold the bike.

The seat to pegs does seem a little taller, but in a good way. I have an inseam of 31" and i find it about perfect. YZ was a bit cramped. The CRFs seem like they have a lower CG too and dont feel so top heavy into turns if that makes sense. I did initially ... more »

I went from a 2015 YZ450f to the CRF250r. No regrets. Handling and ergos are fantastic and I adapted quickly to the slimmer chassis. I was surprised how much I enjoyed the 250cc bike after having been on 450cc machines since 2003 .I can ride longer and ... more »

Robbie Reynard. In 1993 I was convinced he was going to be the next big thing.

I really hope that tracks will open here in ohio. We are getting very strict with this quarantine and I'm concerned it might stay that way for awhile. Bars and restaurants are now closed with more restrictions coming. I need to moto.

Having good tie downs is something you dont think about until you have one go bad at highway speeds.

I always wanted to give the hybrid sprockets a try. I like the wear of a steel ring but don't want the extra rotating weight on my 250f. Hybrid might be the happy compromise I'm looking for.

This is the one thing that makes owning a Honda awful. Two silencers. Why Honda... why?

I have 60 hours on my crf250r with no issues to report. valves still in spec too. I personally never had an issue with overheating either. The engine might be considered weak on the bottom compared to others in the class but the handling more than makes ... more »

Just installed the medium/medium mounts on my 2018 CRF250r. The best thing so far is that the packing receipt that comes with the order does not mention the purchase price. This saved my butt when the wife opened my mail out of curiosity.

Added reply in a thread More fun practicing or racing? 7/2/2019 7:31 AM

As for time on the bike, I enjoy racing. As a whole day, I much prefer practice days. Do my riding, hang with friends and I'm out after 3 hours. On racing days we are at the track for 8+ hours for a couple of 4 lap motos. I'm older now and have other ... more »

1995 KX125. The bike was slow but the mid 90's memories are my favorite. Even took my prom picture with it.

My 2011 YZ450f. I thought it would be a huge upgrade from the 2004 steel framed, carbureted, oil tank having YZ450f I was riding. It handled bad, had odd throttle response and every time I rode it felt like I was fighting it. It was also the hardest ... more »

short answer- YES. I am also 38 and mostly ride practice days with my friends. Since 2003 I have been riding 450s and was just looking for a change, something to make riding fresh again. I got a great deal on a 2018 CRF250r and so far I have no regrets. ... more »

Those prices are for 2018 models. The 19s are only a couple hundred dollars more though.

I recently had an opportunity to ride a new RMZ250. I was very surprised how much I liked the bike. The handling was very natural and even the stock handlebar bend felt spot on. I have never owned a Suzuki but I would definitely consider it now. Especially ... more »
