:confused: 250s weigh only a little more than a 125 and 250s have alot more power (I'm guessing 15 hp more) so I think you'll get bigger air in a 250 and you'll probably notice thattake less effort to get into the air because of the extra power

Well if your on a 125 you'd have to get a better run on the jump if it is hard, with a 250 there are certain mistakes that you can make and end up hurting yourself if you try to ride it like your 125.

You can actually jump most jumps except for the extra long ones with just a little 'blurp' of the throttle on the 250. 125's I think are harder because you have to constantly keep the momentum up. If you make a mistake on that 125, than you may have to back off and roll the jump, where as a 250, just a quick 'blurp', you could make it easily...Just my .02
