2013 CRF250

10 posts in this topic

There is very few changes to the 13. Im betting they change alot for the 2014. It seems they make big changes every 2 years on the crf250r. The new 450 looks insane.

I'm kinda dissapointed with the 2013 250. I thought they were going to change more. But I guess it will be like in 09 when the 450s had the new style and the 250s were the old style

I don't see why they wouldn't at least put the air fork on there. Simple change, but huge diff in weight for the 250. I'm stoked air suspension is coming to MX. I use it all the time in mountain biking and it's awesome!

I wonder if any of the other companies are going with an air fork on their 250's......

Well it looks like the SFF for Kawi has been working and that has been in the mtb world for a while now. So maybe the airfork thing will stick this time.

Hey I'm new to MX, cant blame me for not being as old as the dirt we ride on... haha.

as simple as it sounds it isn't easy. They had to re design the whole frame around the new sff fork to keep the bike balanced and blah blah blah.

But i have a question with air forks now coming along is there such thing as an air shock? or something around this besides the standard nitrogen/oil shock we have now?

Sorry not trying to thread jack here.....

Well I know with sleds/snowmobiles and atv's they have them. For the downhill mountain bikes they tried them, but just didn't have the same feel as a coil. So I quess it could be possible....

Found a decent vid too... http://atvondemand.com/index.php?page=videos&section=memberview&vid_id=100879
