Have 2003 YZ250F.......what year newer to upgrade to?

Recommended Posts

I have a 2003 YZ250F I’ve owned and ridden about 10 years now. I love the bike and it has served me very well.

I mostly ride technical single-track and Jeep trails in the Arizona desert. Have setup the bike with softer suspension,

flywheel weight, etc. for trail riding.

 

I’m thinking of upgrading to a newer YZ250F that I would set up very similar to this one. I’d like to spend no more

than about $4k. What might be the best year to look for and are there some years that have advantage over others?

 

Comments/info appreciated.

IMO, the engine will be about the same as your 03 for what you can afford. The biggest new thing is the SSS suspension vs the old KYB bladder forks you've been riding.

the aluminum frames are not as top heavy as the steel frames.

the turning is sharper for the 10-13 models vs the 06 -09 models.

all are as reliable as your 03

get the newest, lowest hr bike you can afford
