Bike pick advice....??

I'm about 5'11" and around 250-260 lbs and am wondering on which bike to get. The YZ426 or the YZ250F. I've heard stories of people being able to go faster on a 250F. I'm almost a novice, a few more weeeks of practice and I should be a starting out novice. With the 250F I'm afraid of the my weight/bike power ratio. Lookin' for some oppinions here....thanx.

I agree with you. I'd go no smaller than the 426. You need displacement, and the torque that goes along with it. Good luck with whatever you decide.

I agree with you fast kevin.

I agree @ 250lbs you need a 426! I am only 168lbs and 6' 1" and I can still hang on to the 426!


I'm 6' tall at 215 pounds. The 426 fits me like a glove.

Go with the 426.

Yes, what they said!!


I'm 5' 11'' and 230 and have ridden a 250F and i own a '98 400. the 250 is a lot of fun , but for racing you need the extra push.

thanx you all
