Up until recently everyone in the world except me knew that the '90 CR250 is extremely harsh. Now that me and my teeth have figured it out I am in search of solutions. The bike runs great, corners and handles great and is really well behaved, except that it beats the heck out of me. I may have a chance to pickup a suspension set in great condition(just rebuilt) from a '95 CR500. I haven't compared measurements to see if the 500 tubes will fit in my clamps or if the 500 clamps will fit in my frame, but I'm gonna check. The 500 forks seem to be much more plush. I know the 500 is a heavier bike and that will have an effect. Does anyone have any thoughts?
