Dunno how far you are from those. Once you find one, or stop looking, they will be for sale everywhere. It's always worked that way for me. Or, someone will come on here and tell you that newer YZ250's are for sale EVERYWHERE and you shouldn't pay more than $2K for one unless its still new in the crate.

Where are you in OR?

Looking to buy used or new?

I'm in Bend but haven't bought a bike from Oregon in years, last ones were WA, CA, NV, NV, and AZ. I tend to buy a lot of bikes.

I'm looking to buy two actually. First a 05 or 06 for a practice bike. Second 07+ for a race bike.

I have 06 and 08 KTM's I'm in the process of selling to fund most of the two bikes.

That's odd, I've been using searchtempest to search CL and none of those where showing up for me and they are within my 750 mi radius, actually quite close 200 miles or so.

That 07 is nice and a good deal. The other two not so much.

Spoke with a guy today who has a nice 05. Don't know yet...

Back to searching...

Just razzin' ya for having "other" in your stats area...

HEY, WAIT A MUNUTE! You switched "other" to "California"! ๐Ÿ˜

Besides, you don't really want to sell that pretty bike, do ya?

Bend. My Dad loves that town. It's like the Outdoors Lifestyle Activity capitol of the world. ๐Ÿ˜

TommyB, it took me 9 months of looking and a 450 mile drive to get an '08...

So yeah, people are hanging on to their 2-stroke YZs. ๐Ÿ˜

Good luck!

im thinking about trading in my 4stroke yz for a 2stroke yz but i cant find any!! not even the dealers have them

Good luck trying to trade, your are not going to find many people with 05+ YZ250's that want a fourstroke. The market is FLOODED with used fourstrokes and there value is sunk IMO.

I had to go up to WV (I'm in NC ) to get a good deal on an 06 yz250 --and I looked for a while ...and when I got there it was beat up (cosmetically) so I was able to knock a few hundred off of it (I was actually happy that the kid did not take care of it)

I agree any "good priced" YZ (especially 06 and later) will go very fast --at least in this area.

On the other hand, my 05 wr250f (with athena big bore and rekluse) not a bite ...I mean none ...and I've dropped the price 3 times too 1750 --it's loaded with off-road goodies

well not anymore ..I bought the 06 yz for a reason --lots of parts on the 05 wr fit the yz and I figured if worst came to worst and I couldn't sell the wr I'd use it as a donor bike and sell the other parts

anyone want to buy a motor that rips ....probably 20 hrs on the athena kit, put in new valves and stage 1 cam while I was in there, stock cylinder, valves, cams are pristine and would come with the motor.

pm me if your interested....I just decided to part it out so I haven;t listed it yet but it will go up next week

btw.....had to replace a few cheap things on the yz and that thing rips --I love it --it's like riding a motorized dirt bike compared to my wr
