why not the crf150r

it would be perfect for you and compared to your ttr is has a lot of power

for a 250 you will need to get the suspension adjusted for you weight cuz you are so light

I know a kid riding the crf230, and he can't be much taller than you. I say 150 or 230, they are both performing and relatively low maintenance.

i dont want the 150 because it is a red sticker, racer bike and although i might like to race one day my dad and sis have green sticker bikes. plus the bike hasnt been around long enough. will it keep up with 450 as well as the 250 will.

depends a 450 will have a lot higher peak power/speed but the 150 will be able to keep up with it off the bat.

and the 250x its OK for tracks

not the best thing but it can survive

He's probably just short for his age. Aren't 250s red stickers too?
