You make good points. Do you think a majority of owners will have any of these issues with trannys, vibration and powervales? Or just a few that make a lot of noise because of frustration? I honestly assume I will not have any problem when I buy a new ... more »

Crap, but thx for your input, while it goes against my wishing.

Was this the 2016 or 2017? And what does headshake actually means? I'm about 75 kg vet b.

What a great write-up, I'm sure this please others as well. I'm sold. Thank you (or not, since this will cost me)

Tnx, can you give me a few examples how the KTM feels better on the track? Jumping, cornering, engine, ergos, suspension etc? Is there any bad sides? Did you consider the 150? I imagine the shorter powerband makes it harder to ride, and the few extra ... more »

Ha, I have an yz250 as well, way to much power for me, a 300!?!!?

Those Italians, then Germans and now Austrians sort of took the spirit out of the former Swedish brand...

Damn. Tnx for the input lads. The want to ride it bad feeling, is over with after a few rides, but would be nice to have that feeling, and if it transforms to, this is better. My buddy has a new 2015 yz125, and it was tighter no doubt, but still felt ... more »

I'm riding an 2006 yz125, and I need to get a newer bike soon because, well it's getting old. I have no issues what so ever with the yz125. I love the bike, only issue maybe is cornering, feels harder to knife in vs some other bikes I have owned, but ... more »

Oh boy. I have two yz 2006, one 125, and one 250. I feel you. I can't let go of the 250, it's so cool, sounds excellent (the real Braap), and have it's use in certain areas when grunt is needed, but it SUCKS compared the 125 because of confidence and ... more »

Impressive work, how some put in the effort, well it shows. There are no short cuts. Dunno if people feel it, but the 2005 YZ250, that you liked, had a one off frame, that got critique from Reed and others being to stiff, so it got changed 2006-2017 ... more »
