What should my next bike be

Recommended Posts

Im currently riding my 99 kx125 and im unsure if i should get a 250 smoker or a 250 4 stroke

I only ride trails and pit

I want another smoker cuz i the way i ride i feel like id ruin a 4 stroke in a couple hours and i prefer the power delivery and simpleness of a 2 stroke

The 1 big thing making me want a 4 stroke is the fuel efficiency

I have lots of experince and would say im a decent rider
More or less made up my mind on 2 stroke just looking for someone to put into detail just how bad 4 strokes are
Also want someone to convince my dad that 2 strokes are better

Sounds like you want a yz250x or the ktm equivalent. Although, most xc orientated 2ts are newer models(Don't hold me to it).

That would be ideal not sure my budget allows that im in a 2500 - 3000 range

You can buy a decent YZ 250, 2006 or later.  Or a KTM around the 2010 models.  You'll love either of them.

Four strokes are extremely expensive to maintain.  Newer bikes are way better, lighter, and more competitive, but so are the two strokes.  My buddy blew his 4 stroke and it cost him $3000 to fix it.  I sucked sandy water into my bike's motor several years ago, it cost me around $600.... that's with a brand new piston kit and bottom end.
