The xt250 is a great bike, thats just me being very picky..
I just found it takes longer to get to things like the air filter, you need some tools to get the seat off and screw driver to get to the filter, my wr450f's air filter is accessible without the need for any tools or the removal of the seat.
But put it in prospective, how often will you need to get to the air filter and the like..?? Not that often!! For a simple bike there could be a few design changers to make it ' simpler ' but it's all good, when your riding down some tracks who really cares. Not me..
