this bike is a really good machine personally this is all i have to say about this great bike !! In stock form the bike is geared way too tall. The fix is to change the rear sprocket to a 50 tooth which tightens the gearing making the bike hit with a ferocious punch. Other than that I have no squawks about the bike. I have ridden YZ, RM, KX, 250's on track and they all are almost identical on lap times but with the CR I was 2 to 3 seconds faster from the great handling and suspension. The other brands are alright but i have always put my trust in honda and it has never let me down yet !! this bike can get you into some scary positions for an inexperienced rider but that also makes it a lot of fun for the experienced rider like me ! i wouldnt advise a learner or fresh rider to buy one of these bikes they can require a lot of maintenance with regular use which can be expensive.this is the perfect bike for enjoying your sundays around the track or ripping you local field up !!!! guaranteed pleasure !!!!!!!!!!
