yz250f in the woods

hey i ride a klx250 and love the light weight, and really it has good power but rather that putting more money to get a little power i was thinking yz250f now this is a long term goal atleas a few months away but how are they in the woods, i ride rocky areas and hill climbs, my buddy rides a yz426, and it is just too much you have to fight its power, but i think id rather fix the yz's suspension and add some fly wheel weight than fix the klx's power and suspension and then have alot of money in an older bike, ive already done all the free mods and added a pumper carb and geared it way low so to keep in the meat of the revs, so any more power will come at a considerble cost.

Re: yz250f in the woods

They are great bikes for the woods......
You might want to take a look at the WR and see if it fits what you want a little better? You could always modify the YZ to be more trail friendly but it would be expensive to do the lighting coil if you ever wanted lights to be street leagl or??

Re: yz250f in the woods

the light is no prob. i just seem to see more yz's used for sale, and the diff in weight aint worth the kickstand, lighting coil and junked up gear box, at least that is what i seem to hear.also i would rather soften a yz and have some room to grow than try to firm a wr and that would be a hit and miss sort of deal. soggysod
