I'm sure it was the Suzuki holding you back. Once you get a KTM you'll probably be a fully sponsored factory rider within a year. :ahhh:

if i was you and was going to spend that much i would get an 07 or 08 rmz250r. they were rated the best 250f out of all of them or the kx250f my personal fav. im not much of a fan of ktm's for racing. but thats my opinion and you asked for it so... there u go.

im not saying that im going to kill on a ktm all im saying is that the suzuki aint gettin it for me and i can hardly keep it running. and if i can afford to get a new bike at that price i wanted to kno some opinions no thanks to you. but thanks to everyone else. any others?

Given your inability to keep a japanese bike working properly, you are in for a real education if you buy a 250F KTM. To quote Gordon Jennings : "Young man, you would be a fool to own that motorcycle. It will take all your money and break your heart."

I failed the reading between the lines course I took in Junior High but it seems pretty clear to me that Rich feels buying an 250SXF would be a mistake.
