2001 yz285 or 2007 yz250f

Recommended Posts

So i just sold my 2005 yz125 to a buddy not to long ago and im of course looking for a new bike. My budget at the moment is $2500. Not even a mile from my house there is a shop thats selling a 2001 yz250 2 stroke bored to a 285, it looks pretty clean for the year and has a few aftermarket things on it including a full exhaust. He also just put in a new crank and piston. He wants $2500 for it. Im still debating if i want a 16 year old bike though i also dont know too much about 250 2 strokes and im not sure how it would compare to my old yz125. I also saw a 2007 yz250f in my area for $2400, ive heard good things about that bike and I believe that would be a decent choice for me as well. The one thing im very concerned about is when the engine is gonna need to be rebuilt because i know its an expensive fix on the 250 4 strokes.  Any help or info on those two bikes would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
