What year yz is the best?

Recommended Posts

Been looking to pick up a 125 or 250 2 stroke for a while. I keep finding YZ's, a lot of 2004 125's all well within my price range. I know 2004 was the last year of the steel frame, and the 06 or 07 got the upgraded suspension. How are the 04's? Handling still Good? Frames have any issues? I know a lot more about Honda's, this will be my first Yamaha ever besides my RT 100 I had about 7 or 8 years ago.

You'll be happy with either one, but I can tell you from experience it's a night and day difference from steel frame to 06+ on the track. If you can afford a 06+, definitely go for it. The 04's (or 02-04's) aren't bad bikes by any means.

I can afford an 06, I Just can't find any. There's an 07 on Craigslist for $1500, but the guy doesn't have much info on it.

Thats a killer deal! But if you can afford one, its well worth the wait for one to come around.
