Hey Folks I've just scanned through this forum back to index page 11 I'm still not convinced. I'm 36, 195lb. Been riding 28 years. In the last 10 years I'v owned 01 KLX300, '03 KX125, '07 KX450F, and '12 250SX I mainly rode natural terrain until 18 months ago, and have since ridden mainly motocross on sandy tracks. The 450F was just too much weight. It trashed my body and I need it for work on Monday. So I got the 250SX. Like the weight so much better -it feels like the MXers as I grew up knowing them. But I'm not happy with the engineering on the KTM. I know I want to go back to Jap. So I'm looking at a YZ250 (2T), or a 250F. All the other new EFI 250s now seem to weigh as much as my old Carby 450F. So I'm set on either of the Yammy's now, weighing the same as my 250SX. I've never ever ridden a 250F of any brand, and don't have any mates on them. I just don't know if they will have the power I need I guess. I'm not looking to win any races, I just want it to respond when I tell it to. Snap! The stories of explosive midrange float my hopes.... So I guess I want to know if there's any other fellas on these, riding MX, weighing in similar to me. If I get one I won't be modding it - these things are 8K in Australia at run-out prices. The new ones will be 12K!!! I aint paying for mods. It's YZ or YZF. What you think?
