    haha i will wait to get an r1 motor for when i get a 700r for a showbike. im going to be getting a yfz450r soon so i can race in a higher class. but thats going to be awhile so i have to stick with the 250

    yea i heard the steering stabalizer makes a big difference. i will definately need one cuz when im in the woods riding trail everytime i hit a rock the handlebars jerk.

    im going to be racing in the schoolboy class since im only 14 and have a 250

    I think you'll need a kill switch, nerf bars, handguards, skidplates, front bumper if you plan on running into things
    I have Flexx bars & a Precision steering stabilizer to help reduce rider fatigue.
    ASV levers are a great addittion as well.
    After you spend a bunch of money your tires will be shot & you'll drop another $275

    Not overly expensive to start racing since you only need kill switch & nerf bars to race. All that other stuff is nice but not needed
    Good luck

    raptor 250 stock to race ready!

    My son raced his here in pa for 3 months with just nerf's, plates(#), and a tether switch. He held his own. Dont be scared about the power it's respectable stock. The suspension is more important than the motor work for starters. We have added lonestar a- arm's, swing arm, and elka shocks, what a difference, but thats about a 5g investment! Dont be scared stock dude! if you can ride you'll be ok!!!!!!!!!!!!!! period!!!!!!!!!
