I'm in the same boat! Just sold my 17 yz450 and thinking about going back to a 250f. I really liked the fit and finish of my YZ plus it was a super solid bike. My 15 kx250f was also a great. I never could really gel with the handling of my YZ. I tried ... more »

I got good money for my yz450 and it sold in 5 days. I wasn't planning on selling it until the spring but I couldn't pass up getting top dollar. Currently without a bike though.

Same bike but it looks like ill have to go with a 21. 20s are sold out all over new England. plenty of 450s and other left over 250s but it seems like everyone bought up all the crfs.

I didn't think about that with the honda. I know in 2020 they added a new frame and changed the motor up a bit. Is it 100% going to be a new bike next year?

The new 21 kx250f has peaked my interest too. I really liked my 15 kx250f. I wonder if the fit an finish is any better in the newer models.

In most situations it wasn't a problem. The bike took a ton of effort to corner. Like it would fight me trying to get it to turn. I think that's a normal characteristic of that generation YZ. The bike to me felt heavier then it was if that makes sense. ... more »

the 350 has been on my radar. Only thing I don't like is the air forks and the price. I would be all about snagging a left over 350 at a good price but they are all sold out in the northeast,.

Do you guys think going with another 450 would be the wrong choice? If I went to something lighter and better handling then the YZ would it make it any less tiring to ride? My biggest issue with the YZ was that the bike always felt like it was riding ... more »

Thanks for the info! I had a 15 kx250f before my Yamaha. Bike was super fun to ride and loved to ring it out. That's why I don't think the bottom end of the honda will bother me. Only thing I didnt like about the kx was the fit and finish. It just felt ... more »

I was also considering the new honda 450. Might be a good mix of lighter and nimble but still has the 450 power when I need it.

Do you find the pegs to seat height any taller on the honda? I always found the YZ to feel a bit shorter.

Added reply in a thread Tell me about your 2020 CRF250R 7/24/2020 7:30 AM

That's what I'm looking for. The shootouts seem to claim the same on the bike stock. My YZ was great in straight line chop, other then that I felt a lot of the time I was fighting to the bike to get it to do what I wanted.

I was also debating maybe trying the new honda 450. slimmer, lighter and handles better then the 17 yz. Might make it less tiring to ride? My skill level is honestly Fast C maybe slower B rider.
