I am 205lbs without gear, underpowered? A bit. Fun meter? Off the charts

I took it to a track (practice day) a couple weeks ago and lost count of the 450's I passed lol....

Update:I freaking love this YZ250!!! I rode it three times in the past week. The power is amazing! Very smooth and tractable. Suspension stock is better than my revalved KX250f. 2 track days and one trail ride. It's working great. I ordered the OEM restyle ... more »

I just picked up a '14 YZ250 and it is definitely much better for us heavier riders lol....

To the original poster, you will definitely have a blast going from the 450 to the 125.I don't think you will regret it. Don't worry about being disadvantaged power wise. Focus on the sheer joy of ripping a 125 and you'll end up going faster, definitely ... more »

Looking good! Steady drizzle a few hours North in Oregon....Hopefully it stays up here..

Instead of figuring out my suspension I just move over 3 inches

Problem solved..... In all seriousness suspension set up(at the pro level especially) is probably more important than a strong motor or even tip top fitness. Considering the speeds ... more »

Jeffro!!! I'm pretty stoked. I had all but given up on finding a decent used one when this baby showed up. The guy lived 3 miles from house to boot. Might try to make Albany tonight before the rain hits. It looks like this weekend is soaked in the valley. ... more »

Thanks for all the insight boys, I ended up riding my buddies restored '06 YZ250 this past Sunday and the hook was set! I proceeded to throw my '15 KX250f on craigslist, it sold immediately and another friend here in town wanted out of his low hour '14

For me it's time. I wrap 2.5hrs each way getting to the track then sit around all day for two motos..Not worth it! When I was a kid we would hit 30-40 races a year( which I can't imagine doing now) I've sadly become a pro practices..... I'm lucky to ... more »

The main reason I pause from the KTM. I would rather have a weak motor and great suspension hands down.... I am still screwing with my '15 KX250f suspension after factory connection worked on it. It's good but still not nearly as good as the stock KYB ... more »
