200 vs 220,, which one is best for beginner motocross when competing in the 250 class? Ive rode a 220 (a bottom end monster), but i hear the 200 is actually faster and has more rev.
i know i'll have to add stiffer springs for whoops,, but i found a deal on a 200....and i ride 50/50 mx (slow and small jumps) and trails. Any input on that?
thanks....

Go for that 200 if it has any aftermarket go fast mods. But the bucks you'll put into the suspension, you might as well put towards a real 250 mxr if that's what you are going to do with it.

Since you say you ride 50/50, I would go with a 250MX and put a flywheel weight in there. But that is if you are going to be riding a true 50/50

i had a new kx250 for christmas but i didnt like it that well cause i wanted a kickstand, soft seat, and the easy chain tension adjusters..also, i didnt think i could afford it,, but i wish i had kept it cause i got a great deal on it.
