Isn't this the 250F forum, not the 450 😢.

I have no complaints about my 2002 YZ250F, its been as good as ever, And the same goes for my 2 other previous yamaha's before that.

Actually the one thing that I hate is that the older ones dont have Cr style brake routing, But thats been taken care of for 05 😢. Pain in the arse to do if you dont know the trick.

4 speed tranny is great for the track, but limiting in the desert.

250F's have five speed transmissions.

I don't think they are. I race with all honda guys. They bikes are never broke or have to working on them. I'm always working on mine. And they ride like crap.

Generally the only reason that yamaha is a little better then all of its competitors is because yamaha made the first 4 stroke motocross bike since like the 60's

I still have the thing and am going to dump another $1000 in the thing to fix it. If I didn't like it it would be gone. You decide. Let me know. 😢 I am sorry if I am sponsered by a honda guy.

The draggy clutch is a bit of a nuisance for some folks, but it's fixable.

hmmmm... following that logic:

Generally the only reason that IBM is a little better then all of its competitors is because IBM made the first computer since like the 60's.

Generally the only reason that AT&T is a little better then all of its competitors is because AT&T made the first transistor since like the 60's.

Generally the only reason that RCA is a little better then all of its competitors is because RCA made the first color television since like the 60's.

my point is that being first and getting to the top is not the problem. the problem is *staying* on top.

Yeah I'm gonna have to go with the gear box. I rode the honda 250f and that thing has more top speed for the fire roads (even though they arent woods bikes I still consider it a neusance - sp?) First gear is a little tall too. Man I cant wait till my bike looks like Rick's!

And when the night comes, the garage doors get locked and the red guys start shimming or changing their valves...

LocoP,

Get real! I bet they have changed or shimmed their valves more than you have changed your oil! 😢

The stock bars, chain, and tubes suck. The forks are a little harsh on small stuff. Other than that it's the perfect motorcycle. The motor is absolute magic.

Oh, and what makes it better? RELIABILITY/DURABILITY.
