yz250 improvement break down by years 98+

Recommended Posts

I will be in the market for a 98+ yz250 this spring and was wondering what engine/suspension/chassis improvements were made by year to this bike. Like many manufacturers i know yamaha doesn't change its bikes every year. I have a 96 cr500 which has the same components as a 2001 cr500. I am out for the best bang for the buck. I will have around 1500$ so an aluminum frame model will be out of reach. Any info is greatly appreciated.:bonk:

06+ has the SSS forks up front. Considerably better out of the box, although the older forks (05 and before) can me made to work very well.
