Ride a 93 bike and a current bike and get back to us.

The CR was not a "shit in the flesh" machine,it was somewhat peaky for enduro but as he says a flywheel conversion may help this problem.I myself would love a real world comparison of the two and actually think his research may be well founded.Outside the usual brakes and rotor upgrade and both machines with no fuel injection I must be missing something that you see?

The most glaring upgrade would suggest suspension, the CR has more travel but might need a re-valve or lighter spring but the components are fairly comparable.
