I think that if joey gears an Mx bike higher than stock for trails he will like it even less.

ive never ridden a 250f in trails, but i had a yz400f i rode on a trip up to crown king. the oone thing i wished i had was better gearing.(and electric start...)

i had to use the clutch way more than i felt comfortable doing and ended up overheating the bike a couple times. probably didnt help i was running 14/48 gearing, riding in 110 degrees with a crushed radiator, and averaging 9 mph with a leaky water pump seal. oh well, i sold it and have a cr250 again.

anyway, i have heard that going up 2 teeth in the rear is a good start, or you could get a SMALLER fron sprocket. if your chain is still in good condition then you might be okay with the chain being the right length. buying a front sproket is definitely cheaper, but i guess its a pretty drastic change.


again, a flywheel weight will help keep you from stalling, but not give you any more low end torque like re gearing will.

also, i can tell you from experience that mx stiff suspension does NOT like rocks and riverbeds, and nearly vertical hillclimbs with a couple crazy washouts throwwn in. you might want to soften your suspension a little, it definitely would have helped me.

Seems like I'm the only one who does this? I ride a fully blown MX Yz 250 through trails that's ported and polished by millennium Technologies...No FWW or anything, and let me tell you, i'm the fastest mofo on those trails. I ride tight stuff as well, but my clutch hand gets tired there -.-
