I've got an 08 YZF250 wich I am very happy with. I do on occasion wish it had more power to help me recover from a mistake. I am talking to a guy about a trade for an 07 YZ250 smoker. It has a 10oz. FWW, throttle cam, and a Q silencer to help smooth things out. I haven't ridden a 250t for 7 or 8 years. I hadn't been riding before that for at least that long. I was out of shape, and that bike kicked by butt a few times. Fast forward about 8 years... I started riding again a few years ago, mostly MX with my son. I am getting ready to start racing 30+ beginner at my local track, wich by the way is mostly hard pack. (very hard pack) So I am comfortable riding again, just some days I miss the old smokers. Simple, cheap and fun. Anyone with any experience changing? Is the smoker going to be more tiring? I will ride his bike before we trade if it happens. I just don't want to jump the gun then regret my decision. I've done things like that a time or twenty. Thanks.
