Recommended Posts

Put a 125/150 on a trail with no meaningful hills or bogs and it'll hang.

pluse it will hang on trails with hills and bogs too boot!

One of my fastest buddies rides a husky 125cc

Most all of the riders on these boards would be better off on a 125 or 250f.

It depends on what you're after - I like the challenge of controlling a 450 in the woods.  It's all about what you enjoy.

Most importantly to me is torque. That's what saves me if I get out of shape on a steep climb. My preference is the 250/300 2 stroke. I've demmo ridden the 150 xc and really enjoyed it. I wouldnt mind trying out the newer YZ250F.

I have two 250s and a 150. The 150 is by far the most fun bike I have ever ridden! It is also much more fun in the Sierra Nevada mountains than either of my 250s. The only draw back that it has is that I can't

pry my son off of it. Even though I have a 250 for him he won't let me have my 150 back.

How come no body rides a ktm 300 in the 450 class.

Many people do, but I think you'll find that the majority of racers prefer the "revvier" engine of the 250. Nothing against 300's, but the 250's are generally faster in a race situation.
