the pics are crappy on that one but sounds like you've got your mind made up so good luck with the one it looks like a color blind beeThe LT looks alot cleaner.
+ 1 the TRX 250R is a good bike, fast and less maintenance than the suzuki stock. And it looks a lot coolerThe TRX is far supierior to the LT. If you are woried about look's you can clean whith plastic real good with SOS pads & some elbow grease.
The Honda is bullet proff as far as reliability & makes more power than the LT stock to stock, mod to mod..As far as weight I think the LT is a bit lighter at around 320 LB, The earlier TRX is around 360 LB & the latter 88 was around 320 ( same as LT )
Good idea...I am going to start a new thread with a poll. Thank you guys for all the comments.
If you have to get a Blaster and put a 240 kit on it to hang with 250Rs, you might as well just get a 250R, this way you will have a liquid cooled quad. If you buy a 250R you can always get a 300 kit for it as well and once again say bye bye to a 240 Blaster.If you were to find a blaster for $500 or so and install a 240 kit for $700 or so and a larger carb (not sure on the price $150?) You would have a strong runnin blaster. Might hang with some of the 250r's. Just my .02
There is not a whole lot to be afraid of. Maintenance is cheaper, aftermarket parts are cheaper. A 2 stroke carburetor has an air screw instead of a fuel screw, works exact opposite of a 4 stroke carb. Main difference is you add 2 stroke oil to the gas. Of course they sound different, lil' smoke from the exhaust, and have more top end than bottom end. My plan is to keep my 88 LT250R and get a LTZ400 later and keep both.I am kind of nervous to be getting a 2-stroke. I know nothing about them.
