Though i will give credit that the NX gave me 21,000 trouble free miles as far as reliability.
My cam comes on at 5,500-6000... So maybe it was something else? That or the TWO FIFTY part...
More to the point, my discussion is not that of the bike, but of the motor... I'd have no qualms about a CRF230 if it had 10-13 more hrsepower
Or a 29hp CRF250r with 3,000 mile oil changes and 26,000 mile valves...
