Yep I have got one and absolutely love the thing!

I just can't get over the power delivery. Coming from a CRF250, the difference is phenomenal; it rips if you thrash it, but also will quite happily chug up big greasy hills.

The one thing that I am trying to get sorted is the suspension. I find that it seems way too soft on the front end, which is giving it a tendency to wash out a bit when pushed and it seems to stop dead if you hit a hole that the CRF would glide over without even thinking about it. I have stiffened it up, but it is still not quite right. I am prop a bit heavy (maybe 14 stone in my gear), so will check the sag this week, maybe I need heavier springs?

Overall, I am deff converted though. The electric start is soooo much more useful than you would think on a 2 stroke as well!!

thats odd, my mate is probly 16 stone nearly all kitted up and he thinks the front is too stiff but the rear is amazing! when i had my suspension set up i said i would be about 14 stone kitted and kaise said i would probably be better going for the heavier rear spring

Interesting.......I was thinking of putting a heavier weight fork oil in, but as I said, gunna check the sag first.
