I did a 5 hour and 25 minute race on the 2006 yz 250 (130) miles on a gp course. Was a beautiful day and the yz never ran better, there was a grass straight away and every time i hit it i would speed shift into 5th gear and the front end would stand up then i would have to let off the throttle or the bike would have for sure flipped over:thumbsup:. in the end I switched my 2 stroke to a new ktm 250 xc. 33 years on yz's but I wanted something easy to put lights on. If yami ever comes out with a yz300w then i will for sure be back.
