Just change the suspension. Not sure if they have aftermarket suspensions aviable, but you should be able to get one to fit. Quiet a few people do taht now days.

its the old school suspensions, like they come striaght down from the top, as in verticaly,

not horzontaly like all the bikes these days.

how hard would it be to change that? and how much $$ would it cost?

you would probally have to get a big wheel kit to change the whole suspension and tires to make it jumpable which in my oppinion would be a waste...i have a 02 crf which is trail...took it to the track cuz my racing bike was broken....had to get new tires and new back suspension....they just arn't made for the stress and pressure of jumping and hitting the ground...totally bent all the spokes practically in half.... u get the picture

What do you meen by a big wheel kit?? Getting bigger tires wont do anything. Its the suspension. Blanko how big of jumps are you talking? If your talking 30 foot table tops, than dont try it on that, like lee said, it will be to heavy is my guess.(not quiet sure on the specs of the bike), but the bike weighs 50-75 pounds more is my guess than the new race bikes, along with its choppy acceleration and its bad shocks, it wont be able to clear thouse, and if it will it is gonna hurt like a *****.

i'm thinking about sand dunes, idk how high exactly, but sand dunes is what i'm mainly thinking,

also i jsut learned that its not the stock engine that i'm geting, its a 200cc 4 stroke engine from a xr200 trails bike,

how much will that change it by? as in how much closer am i to making jumps with it

umm bigwheel kit from what i'v seen i would get new suspension with it....yea u would probally bottom out with that suspension...and probally do some damage between the legs...on sandunes im not to up to date on those...maybe softer ground but not sure....you would still bottom out...is it 2 stroke or 4 stroke...if 2 stroke and being that out dated its going to be very choppy and a biach to get going

If it's the same as a boat engine... less pollution and smoother/quieter operation.

depends how big it is, 2 stroke will get you mroe power for a smaller engine but it will be louder and messier.
