TRX250r or Warrior?

I was looking into buying a warrior but I may have changed my mind. I was wondering what the TRX250r drivetrain consists of. 2 stroke or 4? Water or air cooled? Kick start or electric? Reverse? What should I build? A 250r or a Warrior??

Re: TRX250r or Warrior?

Here is a pic of a 250r for ya. They are a liquid cooled(i think) two stroke, will do around 65 stock i heard. Kick start. I think they are sweet. Warriors are fun machines too, with reverse and a six speed tranny. Electric/pull start(my friend's '89 is anyways.)

The surgeon general has determined that motorcycle riding will cause: Swelling of the TESTICLES, shrinkage of the BRAIN, and severe trauma to the EGO.

Re: TRX250r or Warrior?

I myself have been out of the game for a few years (now looking to make a return), so my knowledge doesn't carry as much weight as some of the vets around here. You ask a good question, however it's one that is variable depending upon the type of action you're looking for. The 250R (2 stroke and liquid cooled, by the way) is a full on race machine that is also capable of tearing it up on the trails. Be prepared to pay for one, though, as they are quite expensive (due to every racer-wannabe looking to make themselves competitive). The Warrior is of a different breed entirely. It's a sport machine (4 stroke, air cooled), complete with an electric starter and reverse to help you out on the trail should you get in a jam. You can modify a Warrior into a pretty competitive trail and track machine, but it will never hang with a modified 250R in the same environment (though you may be able to keep it close). HOWEVER, the Warrior has alot more torque down low, and its amenities give the rider an extra sense of security when riding. I myself owned a Warrior ('89 model) and loved it. Unfortunately, school was more important, and I had to bid it farewell. Now I'm trying to convince my wife that riding is a fun family activity (she's not buying it so far). Hope I helped.
