    2019 Yamaha YZ250F Reviews?

    What’s your thoughts on the bike compared to your TX300? I’m riding a ‘18 KTM 250XC 2t, thinking of switching to this new 250f. I’m half moto/half offroad. I’m afraid it will leave me wanting more power is literally the only thing holding me back from trading.
  2. For those of us who don’t give two shits about GP road bikes, can we get back to dirt bikes?

    2019 450 long haul updates?

    Anyone with any input? I’m trying to decide on either the new kx450 or yz450.

    I guess if I get one, I’ll just have to live with it being smokey. Has anyone put an aftermarket exhaust on one of these and gotten rid of the raspy sound? If so, which exhaust?

    So any updates on anyone having a 2019 smoke a lot? Just wondering if it’s normal. Still debating trading my ‘18 KTM 250XC for one. Trying to decide between the 250f or 450f.

    That’s one of the things I’m worried about as well...and being way down on power compared to what I have now.

    That’s good to hear! Does yours smoke?

    No idea. I rode some indoor arenacross this week, and a guy had a ‘19 yz250f there riding...it smoked when he started it and would rev it too. Weird.

    Absolutely...they are monsters. However, I’ve never ridden a 450 in the woods. But, my last 250f (2015) was so smokey. Showing up with a brand new bike and it smokes like a two stroke...seemed sketchy to me so I traded it in. I do like the fact that this new ‘19 yz250f has the wifi tuner.

    Love reading all of these reviews. I’m still on the fence of trading my ‘18 KTM 250XC two stroke for one. I’m afraid I’ll miss the power, so I’m considering the ‘19 yz450 as well. I just hate to go 450 because I do occasionally race woods races...afraid it will be too much and the 250f not enough. Plus, my last ‘15 yz250f smoked like crazy since it was brand new. I hated that.
  11. I feel like if it’s going to happen, then it’s going to happen. I’ve had multiple serious injuries, and I’m a B rider skill level. I also have a friend who runs xc2 pro in gncc who has never had any serious injuries. If you don’t ride over your head, you have better chances of not getting hurt. Then again, anything can happen to anyone. My last serious injury about 5 year ago. Shattered tib/fib/talus. I have hardly any range of motion now, but I’m grateful to be able to walk. I’ve also broken clavicle, scapula, and wrist.

    Who has the new 19 YZF250 and what do you think?

    Good to hear. I’ve never ridden a 250f in the woods. Easier to ride than a two stroke you think?

    2019 yz20f info

    My 2015 yz250fx had a weird smoking issue on startup and when you'd rev it from the day I brought it home new. Do these 2019's still have that issue?

    Who has the new 19 YZF250 and what do you think?

    Just what I wanted to hear! I'm a B class woods guy as well. I think I'm going to trade my 2018 KTM 250XC two banger in on one I believe. I miss the buttery smooth yamaha suspension. Just worried I'll miss the extra power of my ktm.
