Deffinately not too much. I had a an xr250 bored to a 300 when I was your age. As my father always says "you can break your horns on anything that goes 20 mph." Just convince your parents you can handle it by handling the bike when you go to check it out!!!

p.s. dont tell them the "you can break your horns" part, just convince them you are ready for the next size, I'm positive you are!!!

well if he has been riding the 200 for a while then unless he wants a CRF230F then the 250 is the next size up.
