i hear good things about this years RM250's, but you cant seem to get a better overall bike than a honda; then again, they are all competetive bikes.. I'd go cr250 if i had the money.

because 2 strokes eat up plugs, espicially if you ride them on the trails. @ strokes are also more maintence, you have to mix the gas. not to mention the gear ratios are different, power bands are hard to stay in (on difficult trails anyway) and they genereally don't come with a head light/tail light.

I guess it really depends on what type of riding you do, but here (and I assume most other places) big long trails and cut lines are what people usually ride.... A nice torquey 4 stroke is pefect for that.

I love my 2 stroke, but I'd also love a nice 250 four stroke...........yummmm, electric start.

4 stroke
adjust valves
bitch to kick over
oil filters
oil all the time
sucks *** when u stall it in a corner

2 stroke
oil and gas mix
and if u dont ride like a ----- you only need one plug.
2 strokes are made to be driven the ---- out of there is no power on the low end

overall i love 2 strokes but whats the bs i hear about them going to stop producing them in 2008?

the 4 strokes pull harder on the bottom end. We had an XR250R honda for a time (however short) and it was a nice bike
