If you want to convert from X to R, maybe you can find someone who wants to go in the other direction, and swap.
More info in the WR250R/X thread on ADV

Thanks! Is it worth it going to a 18 rear wheel as well in your opinion? Or is there good 17 rear tires with the right profile available? I'm worried about the chassi being tilted too far backward so to speak
Or just drop the forks and be done with it?
