Worth the money???
Will it improve the bike enough to keep it longer as my skills grow??
Mostly do trail riding and some limited street.

Thanks for the input.
I haven't done all the mods - just gearing/FI Controller/skid plate/guards and yes they have made a significant improvement, but will mods improve it as your skills improve enough to keep it? I would say that depends on your skills and your goals, if you find yourself wanting to do hardcore trail/enduro riding, and skillfull enough to do so, well maybe a different bike is in order - i had a CRF250X, it was great on trails much better than this bike, however, for the type of riding I want to do now this bike is much more suited for that, yes it has limitations, but thats ok, I love it for what it is....a great inexpensive, reliable 250cc dual sport.
