Most common bike

What bike has had the largest production in the last 5-10 years with the same engine/chassis.  I'm looking for parts compatibility and production.  For example, the KX250 was pretty much the same from 1999 to 2002.  Thats too old though.  What is the most common dirt bike made in the last decade?

The 2004-2017 Honda CRF250X (off-road) and 2004-2009 Honda CRF250R (motocross) share about 80% or so of the same parts.

2005-2018 Yamaha YZ125 and YZ250

I would have to say the CRF50 but I have a feeling you are looking for something a bit bigger

XR650L ,KLR650, DRZ70/125/250/400/650S, RM85, YZ85-125-250, CRF250/450X CRF150R CRF150/230F KLX 110/140, TTR 110/125/230/250 XT250

 Not only the last 5-10 years, but ever.

Would love to have one as a daily rider here in Golden Valley.

2005-2017 yz250, mostly unchanged through the years

Great information.  Thank you.

Kx500 1989-2004, cr500 1989-2001, xr650l 1993-2016?, Xr650r 2000-2007


yz125 is most common bike 

2013-2017 RMZ450 is pretty much the same but I would stay away from the air forks.

PW 50... 1981-2081

 no need to change an awesome bike! 

current yz250 

Engine basically goes back to 99 i think, and i believe 03 is the last year it had any port changes ect... 

Frame back to 05

Suspension back to 06 (for the most part) 

Great bike 

X1 on xr650l

 Great...I have a CA plated YZ250...but it's a the 05+ and redesigns are out of reach


Good thing is the WR250 stuff (transmission, cylinders) swap

I'd say most of the XR series..

EDIT:  Aha, I just noticed you said last 10 years.

I'm surprised no one has said anything about the DRZ400 e/s/sm.. Those things are basically the same bike (except colors and decals) from their inception in 2000.
