I kind of have a problem here. I have been riding for about three years now and I just recently sold my KX125 to get a better enduro bike. I am going to race enduro. I have been looking at a XR250 now for a while and if I get one I plan making it into a whole new bike (black acerbis plastics, white bros pipe, renthal bars, acerbis DHH headlight and Acerbis Flag handgaurds). The only problem is when I watch enduro races on Tv and read enduro magazines I never see any XR's, except Scott Summers XR650-whitch would be too big. All the bikes I see have a Radiator, which the XR250 doesnt have, and inverted forks, which the XR250 doesnt have. I dont really have the money now for a KTM. Are Inverted forks and a radiator neccessary for enduro racing? Are they better to have? Do I need them? Is the XR250 a good enduro racer? Thanks for any replies.
