    Whats the best 250 2 stroke?

    Thanks for the input. I just want it to be reliable. I want to be able to take it on a farely long trail ride and not have to worry about it. Once i get it i will go through it see what it needs. I want to get something preferably thats been sitting more then its been ridden

    Whats the best 250 2 stroke?

    I actually went and checked out a 1997 cr250 for $1000. Bike had a few problems, and the guy would no budge on price. i like the feel of the CR, but would like to get one 2000+. Yamaha has always had a special place in my heart, but they are very hard to find for a reasonable price. guess i just have to keep looking. Thanks for the input!
  3. Hello fellow riders. I have come to a point in life where i want a 250 2 stroke. Right now I have a KTM SXF 250 that is a phenomenal bike. This bike is strictly used for track riding, terrible on trails. Anyways, I am looking for a 250 2 stroke that would be used for trail riding. I have around a $1500 budget. I would preferably like a 2000+ but open to all suggestions. I will be doing most of the work on the bike myself. Open to ALL suggestions/ input. Let me know what you think the best option for me would be! Thanks! Ben

  6. Hello fellow riders! I have come to a point were I want a 2 stroke.... once again. Right now, I have a 2010 KTM SXF 250 that is a 10 out of 10 phenomenal bike. I'm looking for a bike that will be mainly trail ridden as the SXF is a full blown track bike. My budget being around $1600 i'm quite limited. From the research I have done, the YZ 250 has amazing bottom end power, and the CR 250 has a very mean top end with a wicked power band. If I had the money, no doubt I would buy the KTM 300exc. Here in Northern California, a 2000 YZ 250 is about $2,000-$2500, but a 125 is about $1600-$2000. I'm afraid that if i did get a 125 it would become very boring very quick. I'm 5"10 and about 135 pounds. Let me know what brand/ size bikes you guys recommend, any input helps! Thanks. Ben
