Differences between 01 to 05 YZ250f

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone

I have a friend that is working on a few YZ250f's, one of them is an 05. The person that my friend is working on them for is a little interested in my 01 (don't know why) and might trade once its all fixed up. I'm just curious what are the differences on the bikes and if it's worth the trade, or if I should just wait to buy newer YZ. Thanks.

Every year was incrementally better than previous.

The 05 had better foks than the 01. The stock suspension front and rear was better than the 01 It also turned slightly better as the geometry wasn't quite as top heavy. The engine output was nearly identical but easier to start.

If it's a straight trade and you are looking for an even newer bike sometime down the road I would definitely do it. The 05 has a higher resell value...
