Unreal! I'm looking for a 2005 or newer YZ250 and the prices these guys are asking is ridiculous!! Saw a few 03 and 04's for $4000, 05's for $4500 then a 17 for $5200. If someone is asking $5200 for a super clean 17, why would you try to get $4500 for your 13 year old yz250? Are people actually paying that much for a 13-14 year old yz??

I'm looking more in the $2000-$2500 range. Last year that wasn't an issue in my area. They were a dime a dozen. Now? Only very few. It's crazy

I sold my low lpw hours 02 for 2200. Bike was clean. Im more than willing to look in my area for you if you want. Shipping is easy enough.

I sold my 2011 for $3000 last year. It was bored to 300cc, full race tech suspension, rekluse clutch, all kinds of extras. I can't imagine paying $4000 for a used yz250. Might as well buy a ktm300 at that point.

I sold my 40 hour original 2001 for $2000 last august. Ironically I paid $3500 for my 2014 in 2015. Lol

I saw a built 02 with everything updated for 4K and I bet he got it first day. I figured I might be able to get three for my 03 with in the same condition. I would say at this point 02-04s are worth more than the early aluminum framed ones because there are people convinced that the steel frame is better. But why a bike that you can buy new is still fetching a couple of thousand less used doesn't make sense.

That's what I'm saying!! I mean, are people really paying $4000 for a 14 year old yz? I sure as hell wouldn't

I don't know why anyone would pay $4,000 for an old YZ250, but I sure am glad they are! It makes my '06 more valuable. cool

Braaapin' aint easy.

3/15/2018 9:08 AM

I picked this up in November. $2700 Its an 06 with 7 hours on it. This was a picture from the drive home. The Spoke Skins made it all the way to that gas station trashcan.

The more I look online, the happier I am with my purchase. I had a lady tell me in person I was making a bad decision for not buying her extremely clapped out '01 for the the same price

Spring time is here and people are getting tax refunds back. Prices on everything are artificially high this time of year. Want to get a deal? Buy in december.
Also get a ktm whistling

2010 and under shouldnt be any more than $3000. 2011-15 should be like $3500/4 and new ones about 4500 or 5.

People think yz250s are gold for some reason. I could see a 2005 cr250 or kx250 going for $3000-$3500 but not a yz by any means.

I know! I totally get what u r saying. Even here in Australia, everyone is asking $ 4K or more for an 06 or newer yz 250..
I bought a pristine, 3 hour 2013 yz 250 f special edition for $3600..
I really don't know what people are actually paying ,but when I signed up for my 2017 yz 450 f...I would have had to pay $500 more to buy the yz 250 two stroke sitting next to it on the dealer floor..and there were no 1% finance options for that bike either...you can get the 4 stroke on a1% loan but the 2 stroke has a $500 higher sticker price and a 19% pa finance option..
It's a strange world we live in..

This is exactly how I see it. Blue book for new from a dealer is only $3100!

I was looking for one around Christmas time and most of them were roached and people still wanted $3000-4000 for one. I’m not paying that much for a 10 year old bike that is hammered. I ended up finding a leftover 17 for a decent deal so I went that route instead, saves me from the headache of having to fix other people’s junk.

I have an 05 I bought new, I was going to go through it and try to get 2000-2400 or so. But.... I've been on a waiting list for a hip replacement and got the call it's happening on the 30th of this month, so $1,500' takes it as is. It's been maintained, oil changed regularly, linkage lubed etc, but the engine has never been apart, because honestly it's always ran perfect, I've never felt the need to. I rode it at ocotillo a couple weeks ago, it runs perfect. (I'm a 59 year old vet novice so it hasn't been jumped hard trust me lol) Let me know if your interested.

Thanks Jeffro! It would be a long while before I'd be able to save for something that new. We are trying to buy a house in the next 6 months so everything saved is going away for that. We have my yz450 for sale right now so we agreed I could get a yz250 as long as I had at least $2000 left over.

Dudes out here selling 2 strokes for insane prices. You can get a used mint 450 for the price of a 20 year old 2 stroke lol

All things considered (cost, engine performance, suspension, handling) the YZ250 is one of the best bikes to have. It can do it all, and works well stock. They are fun to ride, and unlike a 450, I can hit WFO and hold it there for a second or two. I'm no RC!

I got a new 2016 for $7,500, paid it off in about a year and a half, and kept it mostly stock. With a Boyesen RAD Valve and Air Wing, front rotor, and 9oz. FTW, it hauls ass and works great. I can go faster on a 450, but am having fun and I believe going at a safer speed on the YZ. At my age (35) I just want to be safe and have fun. Keeping the kids at bay is a nice thrill, but I'm not going to wad myself to stroke my ego.

Doug Dubach (YZ Master) said on a podcast that good used YZ250s are hard to find, so I imagine ones in good shape hold a good price point. I bought new to keep my credit current.

It is interesting that McGrath wants two-strokes to return, RC did a cool video on an RM, and Reed got a 2016 YZ to work on as a project bike.

No problem Matty. If you are interested in doing a bit of driving , like I was saying , there are plenty of YZ's up here for sale and around your price point. The 2 strokes themselves are really popular in the NW. So lots of new , used , current and older models laying around. Good luck man , and hope you find one.
