  1. Unpopular opinion: The 1997 CR-250’s frame was actually just as good, if not better than the competitions at the time. The reason the bike rode so harsh was because of the terrible front forks that binded up with out a load. If you swap the forks on a 97 CR, it would smoke the 2002 and later Honda’s, and would still be good competition for modern bikes

  2. Yep, totally agree. I have a low hr 97 CR250 which I put 2004 CRF450 forks in and that made a massive improvement over the stock forks. Night and day difference.
