it's supposed to run the 125cc class. pretty much the compitition for the yzf250, but I think this bike would woop all over it. I always liked 125's on the track more so than my 250, but in the dez, a 250 is the way to go. that crf250 should have alot of guts and will handle the sand alot better than a 125
Physically size wise it will probably sit about the same as my 450 or any 125/250 dirt bike. Powerwise would be comparable to the 125 class but probably no powerband, more linear torquey feel. 4 stroke style!!!
A little birdie told me that changing the oil filter on the RMZ is a real pain in the arss! Draining coolant and taking off side covers.... Sounds like way to much work for an every 2 oil changes type of job. Also the Clutch rubs on the clutch cover and makes a horrible noise Along with KYB suspension! What is that?
I am bummed I was going to get the RMZ but I am all CRF250 now.
-Just what I have heard. I guess we will have to wait to really see.
That's true, it's also on RacerX I think. The bike is all new with the aluminum frame, and is 100% Suzuki. I think the '04 date is realistic, and looks like Suziki really wants to impress with this bike. I'll be interested to see how the bike turns out!
