Finally done with my CR (rode it twice, then sent the cylinder and head off for some “tuning”). Dad’s getting back into it at 67 years old (I don’t care who you are, that’s badass). Just finished the CRF for him. Best part is these two bikes combined are about even with one new 450 cost-wise.

Pops putting some hours on it, so it wouldn't just sit in the garage collecting dust (back in December, winters in Estonia are cold and long, no bueno).

Thanks a lot guys. I've got a Scalvini cone pipe ready to go, and a few other goodies. Sent the engine to Derek Harris, hoping to make enough power to get around my friends RM125 haha.

@ledger.....Get going on that Kawasaki, it is officially time to get your ass in gear grin

How do you like the 350? Tried to find some reviews and nothing too substantial to form a solid opinion on. Coming from 125/250f's, was looking at a new 2018 CRF250R but seeing that it weighs pretty much the same as the FC350 and having that little bit more oomph when needed has me intrigued. Just don't want a heavy, hard to control bike, rode a few 450s and not a fan of the weight and feeling of hard to throw around/manuever on the track. I'm a C class weekend warrior, 5'11, 155lbs.

To me ive ridden all the sizes and usually settle on 250fs as the best for me. I love the 350s. 450s are too abrupt and too heavy that torque right out of corners unsettles the bike for me and tires me out too quickly. Never feel like im pushing just along for the ride.

The 350 is SO smooth down low and thru the whole range. That smooth low end lets it stay hooked up and gets you out of the corner nice, just hold the throttle on and it keeps pulling. The mid-top pull is ferocious. I also feel i shift less on the 350 than a 450 becsuse it revs so much further it can stretch from corner to corner in one gear better

Tons of upsides to a 450 to me and zero downsides. Besides being able to crawl and last second decide to roll it on and clear something. 450 still does that better.

As far as getting tired the 350 is ridiculously easy to ride fast. Encourages me to push it and hit my lines. I love it seriously. I think it Will be an advantage in 450c this year when everyone else is tired i should be picking them off.
