My buddy wants to race my xx. Mine is bone stock and his 94 2 stroke cr250r is pretty modded from what he says. Who thinks the xx can beat him?
I don't know too much about 2 strokes but I've heard they require a lot of maintenance to run right. I actually just got my xx about another ago and I'm in love. I had a yamaha warrior before my xxwell if everything is up to par on your buddys dirtbike it would be a very interesting dragrace!!! my neighbor has a yami 200 stock blaster =200ccs and he gets the holeshot but i comeback and run him down about 1/8 mile into the quarter mile!
The bike would win. Even a modern 250 4-stroke mx bike would win. Motorcycles are crazy fast. Tell your friend to find another motorcycle to race. Like someone already said, bikes weigh at least half of what the 700xx weighs and a 2-stroke is even lighter. As far as 2-strokes needing more maintenance, that is false. I have both. In fact, they may even require less since you don't have to mess with any valves. They are more sensitive to changes in altitude.
Why did you get rid of you KFX? I really love my wife's. When she doesn't want to ride, I still take hers with me. I installed some TRX450R front shocks on it and am very eager to try it out. The old setup was way too stiff. By the way, did you ever have issues with it road walking? The steering was so sensitive that it wanted to follow any little rut or deviation. I did check the front end and everything was tight so I installed a steering stabilizer and it helped tremendously. Just wanted to know if this was common.
I haven't had mine long enough to do too many races. Mines stock and I beat a banshee ( the guy couldn't shift worth a crap he just sucked ) a couple 4x4 quads and won a Couple 125 dirtbikes smoked em and the best one was some Mexican on a general lee mopedThe cr250 was a 2001 I think. The only bike I ever lost to was a crf450 and jeez those things are insane mean as are any of the 450 bikes....Wow..... My kfx wasn't the normal though. I'll upload a vid of the 250's I gave head starts. That was with my kfx a 730 big bore with stage 3 custom grind cams not hotcams. They were both new bikes like 07+. I don't see a 250r beating any fourstroke with some umphhh off the line as they don't have the bottom end like a fourstroke does. If anything it shines more on topend.
Only thing I have raced on the 700xx was an ltr450 on the highway, I wasn't ready and he jumped me out of the hole by 2-3 bikes. By 4th I was back by him 1.5 to 2 bikes. I was surprised. Thought he would beat me pretty good. Not the case.
I'll see if I can find some of my old drag racing vids. I have an old computer with 100's of vids on it but the motherboard crashed so I gotta fix it or get a usb adapter for the hard drive so I can get my files back.
