I thought about it ,too tall and wide imo ..

And I hear not very reliable in recent years 

Everyone that has tried mine so far loved it.  Have you had a chance to try a 2019 or newer on a track?

I've often wondered if my short stature is the reason I don't gel with blue.  I also suspect their rear linkage is different.  I always feel unsettled when coming in to the corners on blue, as if the rear end is just off doing its own thing.  Then inevitably I get some push and I exit wide.

If you are used to KTM / Husky, they still feel kinda goofy. You just have to have it in your head that unless somehow it is a major deal breaker, you deal with it and eventually get used to it. On a 250F it's not that big of a deal.

Both the YZ125/250 are as good as any bike on the market. Not saying they are the best bike for everyone, but in general, they are such well-rounded bikes and very versatile. I don't regret getting my YZ over a KTM/Husky 1 bit. Especially since it took an investment to get my Husky 350 suspension sorted out to my liking, so I would've had to do the same thing to the Husky 2 stroke, had I gone that route. The YZ was great stock. A few bolt-ons for the motor and that bike isn't holding me back 1 bit.

👍

@MotorBoatin will tell you the Yamaha's understeer, he's been preaching it for a while.

I used to set my YZ250 to 100mm rear sag.  It didn't push but it had a lot of weight on the front.  So not very forgiving.  But it turned.

Only brands I ever felt at home on are Maico, Honda, and Suzuki.  That doesn't mean I won't ride other brands, haven't be able to go fast on other brands, or haven't owned other brands.  I always seem to migrate back to one of them though.

All three turn...or turned...better than the other brands

Yes, and I derived all my confidence from the corners so it's no big surprise.  Besides, nothing says manly like riding PAST the headshake 🙂

Actually my Maico before I put stiffer fork springs in it, holy crap I'd forgotten what those bikes were like.  My son's CR125R does it when the rear shock bushings get some wear in them, but nothing like that Maico.  I think I soiled not only my underwear, but all next weeks underwear too.
