Hey guys, I just wanted to say that I just bought a used Canadian 250f and have yet to get out on it. I have an 01 426 and wanted to have the 250f since I rode one recently and loved it. I have some questions though. I'm 6'2", 200lbs and I'm assuming that I'll need to upgrade the fork springs and shock spring. Any recommendations? How about stock 426 springs in the 250f? Do any of you 250f owners run an 0-Ring chain or do you stay with a taffy stretcher so it doesn't robb power? Where should I have the fork height set? Level with the top triple or the fork legs raised about a 1/4 in. like it is now? Does a pipe make a monumental difference on the 250f's and if so, what are some recommendations? Should I change the rear sprocket to a 49 or 50? (Stock is 48) I've heard many riders doing this and wanted to know if a tooth or two makes a big difference. Any other recommendations would be oh so greatly appreciated. I just luv these Thumpers.
