Is this a joke?

I'd just sell it and get something different

Go up one tooth on the drive sprocket. It won't be slower but it'll be easier to ride.

IMO if you truly outgrow a 250 then you'll be ready for a 750.

But if she really outgrew the 250 let's see some vids, because I'll bet she's turning pretty good lap times.

I'm just thinking that if you are truly a master of the 250 then you can responsibly ride a 750 no problem.

I just think one can easily mistake being 'comfortable' riding a 250 with having outgrown it.

true. 750's are a wee bit wheelie happy. I would have to rig up a throttle stop to prevent accidental ham fists.

You could add DUMBbells!!!???....


Or drag a tractor tire behind you.....

or attach a wind sail....


or swap it out for a 600?!

To be honest just get her in MSF and tell her to take it EASY. If she respects the bike and what it's capable of you should be ok. A 600 is still too powerful for somebody with the wrong attitude.
