    Steahly 12oz Flywheel weight

    This was probably the easiest upgrade I have ever done. It's a 12oz flywheel weight to help mellow the bike out and make the power come on smoother. It helps the bike get traction in slippery or loose terrain, and makes the motor less likely to stall in low rpm's. This has made it much easier to handle on tight trails. It's very easy to install, but does make the bike a little sleepy. If you're wondering if this is the right upgrade for you're bike, first look at the terrain you ride most often. If you tend to ride dunes, then this will not improve the performance, or if you're bike is already on the lazy side, this will just make it worse. If however, you're bike tends to break the rear tire lose whenever you crack the throttle like mine was doing, and you can't keep it tracking up loose, steep hills then this definitely helps. The 12 oz. is as heavy as I would ever go on a CR250, and I am thinking about taking a couple oz. off, but overall it works great, is still very fast and the rear tire doesn't feel like it's on ice all the time. I can ride the bike in loose, rocky terrain that I wouldn't have dreamed of before. I also installed a FMF Gnarly pipe that makes more grunt down low, but it won't rev quite as high and free anymore, so it's all a game of give and take. Take what you can and try not to give too much up in return with these types of upgrades.
