Okay, I have asked many times here before, and have had numerous responses ranging from a KDX 200, to a CRF250x/r/f.

But the problem is I am leaning more towards a 4 stroke now, and I can't find many CRF250"" in my area.

The one bike that I do see alot in my price range is the YZ250f. I'm wondering if this bike is good for me.

Thanks, Dan. :cool:

i would say a 250 4t or 125 2t the only prob with the 4t is that any thumper in your price range i would be wary about. thumpers need a lot of maintence

maintenance will cost more than you want to pay on a 4 stroke. Go for a 2 stroke, they are lighter, quicker, cheaper, and way less maintenance.
