Well, I'm thinking about making the jump to a big bike!! Any body have time on a CRF 250X??? I found a place that will custom valve the suspension so the bike will fit me, and I found one for a reasonably good price. I've been riding a CRF230f and want to upgrade to nicer suspension and a bit more power. I mainly ride trails, but am getting more and more into desert type riding. Hows the power in sandy conditions (not dunes, more like utah style desert riding)?? My 230 is great on the trail, but iT doesn't always have all the power I need. In deep sandy trails it definitely looses a lot of power. And, the suspension is very limited in it's tunability. I'm also hoping that a custom valved inverted fork will help save my hand from an early fusion. Any input on this bike would be much appreciated!
