Yz vs yzx

Recommended Posts

 

  • Suspension revalved for woods/single track riding/racing.
  • 18 inch rear wheel.
  • Kickstand.
  • Petcock with reserve.
  • Different CDI for more linear power.
  • Different gears in tranny (similar to WR gearing)
  • Different head.
  • Differences in the way the powervalve operates.

I'm sure there are a few things I am omitting, but the above list is basically it.

Yes, the YZ250X is a full on race bike. However, it is marketed as a "GNCC" (hare scramble etc....) type race bike as opposed to a MX bike (like the YZ250).

The X is basically a regular YZ with the mods that allow for off-road type racing without having to make the mods yourself. Other than hand guards, rad guards and a skid plate, it is ready to race.

I noticed you mention the CR, KX and SX, which are MX bikes. If you are interested in motocross only, you probably want to look at the regular YZ. Although if you do some searching, you will also see folks that actually race the YZX in MX.

It is a quick and very capable bike. 

Hope this helps.

For what it's worth, you can make a pretty decent woods bike/desert racer out of a YZ MX'er too.
