husky wr250 vs yamaha yz250x

Recommended Posts

So I've got a dilemna

I've currently got a yz250x, but I've recently gotten my license and I can't register it. I was a bike that I can go out and smash the mx track and bush on the weekends, and then just chuck some motard wheels on to get to school during the week.

Hence why I'm looking at the wr250. The one I'm looking at is a second hand 2008 model.

What is this bike like? especially compared to the new yz..

thanks in advance

hahahah I could in theory, but I'm not keen to drop all my money on bikes. I don't ride enough to justify 2 dirtbikes

Impossible to start easily and reliably. The kickstarter is straight out of 1987 as is the weak spark ignition.

Good. Well adapted for off road riding. Softer delivery but still effective. Heavier than the YZ and you can feel it. Old school smoker design - not bad just not polished.
