Correct. find a friend with a 250 and see if it's ok with you. The 450 is beast, half the horse power and half the weight as a r6. You could ride either for sure tho.


Service intervals really depend on how you ride. The Yamaha engine is built like a tank tho. If you can work on a r6 you can work on a Yamaha dirtbike. Same engine just 3 less cylinders.

Go fast parts:
Pipercross race filter, Leo sbk slip on, 05 header mod, pcv, bauce racing ecu flash, agg smog block offs, quick turn throttle, 520 rk gxw chain -1-1 renthal sprockets, ebc hh pads
, Shorai battery.

Body:
Robby moto sbk rearsets, woodcraft clip ons & sliders, armor bodies sbk fairings, db screen, vortex v3 gas cap, keyless ignition mod, agg sbk res kit,

You're gonna love it. It's the same in a lot of ways yet very different also.

Btw if you read the service manual it'll say replace the piston kit every race weekend....f that. The manual states service intervals as if you are a top factory rider lol.

Re: Any dirt riders??

Cant go wrong with a 250 2 stroke, easy to work on and very cheap to rebuild.
Lots of power and they sound and smell great, lol.
I just sold my '06 KX 250 a couple of weeks ago and miss it already.

How tall is she? I have a 98 CR125 and love it. I had a 2001 YZ125 and I like the Honda better (handling and more torque yet less top end). 2001 XR100 (first 2 wheeled powered bike)

I'm short so 125 is just about my limit.

I never understood that. A 125-450 all have a 39in seat height. Least the yamahas. So if you can ride a 125 you should be able to ride any bike as far as seat height goes

I've been scoping either the YZ250F, or RM250. Will the 250 haul my big ass around and be fun? Or should I look to the 450? I assume its like the R6/R1 difference. Any input?
@240 a "big 3" raptor would beat your a$$. 450 bike might be a better option for you though. Bleed blue and stay with a yammi


edit---dammit I hate when I respond and there are multiple pages and I'm on 1 thinking its the whole thread FML
