You're perfect size for a 125, go for it. I came off a KLX125L and had no problems learning how to ride a 125.

The YZ125's are good bikes but they are race bikes so they won't allow being in the wrong gear like your old TTR would. Good news is the YZ is at least twice as fast as your old bike. You'll like it just fine and will be glad you bought one. Try to get an '01 or newer. :thumbsup:

thx, i found an 03 in awesome shape a few hours from here does 2k sound about right?

Sounds about right depending on the shape it's in. Sometimes it is better to pay a little more for a bike that was well maintained than one that wasn't.
