What you want is any of the 2-stroke 250's. They are lighter and have less rotating mass in the engine, both of which make throwing the bike around mid-air easier.

Then you will want to cut down the fenders and the sidepanels over the airbox to create areas to grab the bike when your jumping around on it. A larger rear sprocket won't hurt, it helps you get up to speed faster and many jumpfaces/ramps have limited run-up room.

Also a good idea to get a set of Fatbars and levers/perches than can fold in any direction, just to lessen crash damage. Because you will crash, alot. And gear-up your body well, you will be falling out of the sky from significant hieght regularly.

Drink lots of milk, your going to break a few bones. Count on that.

Good luck, and have fun. :mrgreen:
