    Great power. Suspension needed a lot of work by FC to get right setup for NETRA (A250 class). Lots of good things. FI throttle is abrupt off the transition.
  5. Looking for opinions here. I'm currently on a 15' 250FX that I have been riding for the last year or so. 100+ hours of hard PNW single track. Occasional hare scrambles thrown in there as well. The bike is fantastic and very confidence inspiring. I've put a lot of money and time getting her dialed in and she runs great. Its been through hell and back multiple times and it always gets the job done. Overall its a great bike, but there are some things I just don't like about it. The bike itself feels big (wide) and is tall / top heavy (and I'm 6'1). I just don't feel 100% on it through nasty obstacles, pivot turns, etc. as the height and top weight sometimes makes it more difficult. In its defense it carries its weight well through the flowy stuff. However, i felt better through these situations on my previous gen WR as it was smaller and easier to throw around. In addition, i spent some more time on my buddies Beta 300rr and just loved it. I was quite surprised how much easier it was to ride in the nasty tight single track than the FX. The FX does well, but the 300rr was better. Through the faster sections i actually liked the FX better for what its worth. I have never owned a 2 stroke, but have ridden plenty, so this would be a big switch for me. I like the idea of easier maintenance and motor work. I recently helped a friend do a top end on a 125 and was shocked how easy it was. Also, I just bought my first home, so a lot of money and time will be devoted to that, so the simpler the bike, the happier I think i would be. Now with the 250x, I love that it has the same suspension as the FX and that motor isn't as hard hitting as its MX brother. My buddy has the X and i was really surprised how much more compact it felt in stature compared to my FX. The bike just looks slimmer, feels lighter, and is much easier to maneuver. It still maintains a similar seat height, but doesn't feel so top heavy. I wish it had an E-start but am not totally turned off by that considering it was super easy to kick. I guess my question for you guys is whether you think the transition would be worth it? Im curious about others experience on the bike and for those who made the switch from strictly 4 strokes to the 2 stroke. Any info would be appreciated.

    It's really a 2018 model but this silly program can't seem to add it to it's list..lol..Not much time on it yet but so far I really like this bike..
  7. I was 1st in line at the Yamaha demo in Florida today and Jason Raines told me Im the first guy to ride these new bikes as he just uncrated them the day before. My first outing was on the WR. Trails were single track with sandy soil and enough moisture in the dirt to make it fun. The bike feels wide in the radiator wing area but if you've ridden the YZ then you know the feeling. Handling was good but the bike does feel weighty. The suspension felt ok for my 190lb B class body(before gear) but the trails were fresh and not tore up so take that for what it is. The gearing felt ok with no real gaps ( the two bike share the same trans) I wanted to like the bike but the motor left me disappointed as it was underwhelming with soft power and lacking top end pull ,also the mapping was confused with a hanging idle at times and eratic fueling. The bike had the throttle stop and exhaust limiter removed. Overall it is what one would expect from a WR, nothing more or less. I would think if you liked the previous versions you would like this one too but to me it felt more playbike than racer, just my opinion. Next up was the FX and BOY how two bike so similar can FEEL so different! This is the one everyone liked! VERY Impressive in the motor department with major thrust, very clean low end with no feel of wanting to flame out when plonking and a nice free reving feel which pulls hard thru the mid into a long top end. I normally ride a KTM 300 and this bike did not feel underpowered to me. The extra power pulled the gears very well and whatever weighty feel the WR had disappeared on the FX, perhaps it is a combination of less weight and ALOT more beans! The FX is for sure a race bike and I really enjoyed riiding it.It was impressive for a 250 thumper but not at all hard to ride and everyone who rode it felt it was a winner with much praise for the motor. I would be happy to answer any questions to the best of my ability.

    YZ250FX has a tall seat? Really?

    So it seems lots of folks on here saying the 250fx has a tall seat. But does it really? Yamaha lists 250f and 250fx both with 38" seat height, KTM 350xcf-w is 38.1". My 2002 YZ250F factory spec is 39.3" and it feels tall for me at 5'7". I was looking at the 250fx and one of the benefits was a stock seat height 1.3" lower than what I have now. So is Yamaha spec off, is the seat height not 38"???
  9. It won't be me my dealer hasn't heard anything yet. Guess the comment about mid december time frame was more accurate than end of November. Can't wait to read some real world reviews of the bike and hear what people think.

    Sweet!!! For more detailed pics see http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/1113697-who-will-be-the-first-with-new-15-yz250fx-or-wr/page-2
  17. Got mine last week. Spent a day breaking it in on easy trails by my friends shop in Scottsdale, Az. Stillwell Performance. He is the guru for KTM suspension and setup and has my 350XC-F working awesome and I am sure he will get this bike working even better. A little background on me: I have been riding the KTM 350 for the last 3 years and haven't had a Yamaha 250F since 2005 when I had a WR250F but rode and raced a CRF250R and YZ250F from 2001 to 2006. I haven't owned a two stroke since 1996 when Honda came out with the XR400. I was one of the first on board when Yamaha released the YZ400 in 1998. 58yrs old, 205lbs, 5'8" B+ to A level trail rider, no more racing. Managed to get a TMD skid plate off a KTM 450W to fit with some creative use of heat gun. Installed my Shorai lithium battery, weighed bike, 248lbs full of gas, and set sag. Only had 25mm free sag so stiffer spring is next. First impression: Bike is an amazing piece of engineering. It is a tall bike! Felt thicker than my KTM through the middle but never noticed it riding. Jerky throttle response and more engine braking than expected. Seemed to loosen up a bit later in the day. Very barky and strong motor for a 250. I'm gonna like it! Handles fantastic, very easy to throw into turns and still very stable when speeds are high. Shock felt great, fork ok but needs to break in. Spent an hour of easy riding then back to shop and changed oil, filter and checked screen. Everything looked good. Spent another hour and half progressively riding it harder but still on easy trails. Really impressed with this motor, suspension feeling a bit soft for my weight and fork doesn't like rocks. Back to shop for spring swap. Forks to .46kg and changed oil level. No 6.0kg rear spring in stock. Decided to call it a day. Rear spring arrived yesterday so it is installed and handguards bolted on. Ready for tomorrow on some of out tougher trails. Will mount up the GoPro and get some video. Stay tuned. Link to my YouTube page: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsfDi_MV2QqeOGpSj3H3ouQ
