Yz125 or yz250f

Recommended Posts

Hey guys looking for a new bike for trail riding, what would be better a 2t or 4t. My budget is 2500, would the maintenance of a 4t be really expensive to keep up with or no because of how much less you do it?

Now this depends on you. If you plan to ride trails only? And consider your self a good woods rider? Then I would lean towards the late model XR's These are bullet proof bike's, way less expensive to buy and most of all maintain.  250 or 400 Your call I personally ride  1985 XR 350R and you would have to almost pry it out of my cold dead hand's!

Mordern 250F's are high tech, high maintenance race bikes. They became popular because they are easier to ride/race than the 125's they competed against. Some racers can afford the extra maintenance and have the money in the bank just in case the motor goes up in a $3000 puff of smoke.
Unless you have a healthy bank account and are worried about how many laps you can ride at your absolute fastest, I wouldn't consider a 4 stroke mx bike.
