Default CRF250 or go CRF450 ?

     

I was wondering, once i sell my RM, what i wanted was a CRF250
I was thinking about getting a CRF450 though, it will be cheap, because i would buy a '02-'03 450 , but would have to get an '04 250
I am 5ft 8in. tall and 130lbs
I am afraid i might not be happy with the CRF250's power, do you think i will be happy?
and also, Would this be worth it, and would it be a smart move?

The 450 will be too much. Your the same size as me. The 450 has more power then a 250 pinger, and ive ridden a KX250. Way more power than anyone my size could use. Get the crf250. You wont regret it.

I'd say get either a 250 4-stroke or a 125 2-stroke.

My votes for the 250f as well. I'm over 200 and I really want a 250f. They are a blast, and a lot easier to ride.

I haven't ridden either one of those bikes...so take my opinion with a grain of salt.

If I had my choice between those two bikes, I'd go with the 250. I'm about the same height as you and got a little more in the luggage dept., I just think a 250 would be good enough. I'm sure there are some mods you could do IF you ever felt like there wasn't enough power.

I am 200lbs and went from a 426f to my 250f and am very happy with the 250f. It is much more fun to ride. The only time I really miss the 426 power is when we hit a long straight away. My buddy races in the Pro Class and he has both a 04 CRF450 and 04 CRF250. Any time he practices or rides for fun he rides the 250.
