New here. I have a 2000 250 mxc and can offer advice. I am a rider who enjoys trails
(easiest places to go for a boot) but also seek out challenging rides and tougher trails for
the thrill of it, My riding skill is ok and the bike helps alot. I have been mxing a couple
times and do occasional big air. The only complaints are at the extremes of the scales.
(It is funny to colmplain about the extreme rides where there are no trails and the
occasional huge air as this is so infrequent ,but still I complain) The bikes bottoms and
the chiro bills go up(lol,after my many visits the chiro went with me after we lined up a
new xr400 for him-which I have rode twice) the bike botooms but only on jumps of more
than 35 feet (I am 180lb) Secondly when I ride up areas where there is no trail or there
are rocks I really want to putt along, but a half inch throttle twist turns into tire spins
and not the torque forward movement you need. Ok ,those are the extremes ,the
infrequent ,but the excilerating moments. I want a bike as awesome for build quality ,as
attention drawing ,as fast ,a little stiffer in suspension and more resistive to bottoming,
but most importantly a little diiferent hook up at low speed trail crawling. I dream right.
Any comments from the 400 4 strokers, I am going to try the ktm 400 ,I would love it in
mxc with the tight ratio, but wouldnt mind opinions on the yz 426 and maybe the wr 426
might be better for low speed crawls. Oh yeah ,one last perfect touch would be an
any ways my 250 lets me hill climb in 3rd without shifts ,and I havent been beat in a
sprint yet. Just decide what riding is more prominent in your life and grab an exc(enduro)
or sx (motox) or the mxc like I did for the larger gas tank.
