2001 250f to 2010 or newer?

Recommended Posts

Hi. Ive ridden and maintained a 2001 YZ250f for a good amount of years now, and it does well for my intended riding. However lately I've been getting the itch to get something a little newer.

I was wondering, apart from ergos and maybe a bit less weight, would a newer 250 really be different enough to warrant upgrading? I also realise that suspension would be improved on a new bike, but would it be a large improvement.

I ride mainly for fun on local trail rides and tracks, and can do a decent job of keeping up with many of the newer bikes. I feel though that i have reached the limits of my riding on my current bike.


On a side note, I did also consider going to a 450, but given that I enjoy a wide variety of terrain, including tight tree sections, I figured a 450 would be too much bike in some situations.
