Hey guys,
So i recently have started looking into a 2005 yz250 that someone i know is selling amd i have a couple of questions on it.
1.how is the reliability on it. I have heard of transmission issues on these bikes. Is it more reliable than the 01 cr250 i own?

2.how is the handling on it? Does do any thing wrong or anything really well?

3. How does it compare to newer bikes. Is it still competitive?

I just bought one back in April. I went through it completely and it is amazing. I used all oem parts except for the ProX piston. You can check it out in the bike check section.

1) It is as reliable as any other YZ out there. Most of the motor parts are the same as the new YZ's. I didn't notice any difference between my 05 and my buddy's 13.
2) The bike handles great! Get the suspension set up for you by a reputable suspension tuner and it will be great. When setup correctly, the forks are just as good as the 06+ SSS forks.
3) Again, I didn't notice any difference between my 05 and a 13. The YZ is a great package all around. The motor is a great all around package, not the most powerful, but far from the slowest. The bike does everything well!
