I think the 250 suspension is the same as a 450, and with the SX it just has more adjustment controls over the EXCs, right?
The 250sxf forks are closed chamber like the 450 but the 250 has softer springs and softer valving. Neither the 450 or 250sxf has good trail suspension. To not beat yourself up you would need to revalve front and rear.
The exc has open chamber forks.
