yzf250 vs. crf250 the truth about which is best

Recommended Posts

OK straight and to the point. Which bike is the best 250 hands down. In other words which bike outlasts and out performs the other bike?

CRF has constant vavles problems, is not as powerful, but has better suspension. 05 YZF suspension is probably very close to the CRF's. Bascially Yamaha has had 4 years to work out problems and they really didnt have much to begin with. Honda and the others have 1 year. People on here have 01's and 02's with thousands of miles and they have reshimmed 1 or 2 times. Honda guys have to reshim sometimes as early as 10 hours and get new valves after a few months. You decide if you want to ride more or work on your bike more.

If I were you I would try my hardest to hold off for the 06 YZ250fs. Those bad boys are going to get the aluminum frame and I would bet that those things are going to have a big waiting list! If you are getting an 05 all the other 250fs are more reliable then the crf. The KXF/RMZ also has some valve issues but not like teh crf. :cry:
