I'm not quite sure what i am going to get for my next bike i am really excited to get into racing and buying a new bike. I recently purchased a 2006 TTR 230 at the begining of the season. It has been a great bike for me so far. I Am starting to realize that its getting to slow for me and i am getting to big for it. I am 6ft 180lbs and i would like to start racing. I want a 2 stroke but i heard that they have to be rebuilt alot and you blow through spark plugs easy when you are in trails riding in 1st or 2nd gear. Is this True? If so how much does it cost for them to rebuild the top and bottem ends for you? This is the main reasons why i want the yz250f because it is a 4 stroke. I also heard that they are expensive to rebuild ranging from $400-$600 (Canadian) I have been riding for 3 years and i am puzzled can you guys please help me out?
