I am looking at buying both after this summer. I am trying to collect as much UNBIASED opinions as I can as to which bike you guys think would be better for me. Height: 6'2'' Weight: 155 (with gear) Experience: Will be 2 years next October Ability: Currently on 97 CR125. Riding top of D class. Should move up to C for outdoors. Here's what I have collected about the Yamaha: -Amazing reliability -Good all around motor -Good all around suspension -Doesn't particularly do any one thing the best, but does all very good and is a VERY VERY awesome bike Here's what I collected about the Zook: -AMAZING SUSPENSION: Best of the 250F's -Motor has lots of bottom-mid, but comes up short up top. Easy fix -Clutch problems??? -Reliability has improved greatly from the SF models -Overall an also really really great bike Based on my size, I am leaning towards the Yamaha, I've heard it is more friendly to the taller rider. I just love the look of Suzuki's and the contingency program cannot be beat. Which really pulls me toward Suzuki. I really torn 50-50 with this. I need someone to convince me one way or the other.
