that is a hard choice but i think the rmz and kxf should be added together just becuase kawasaki makes them all they have is yellow plastics and suzuki tags on them the rmz even has a mfgrd by kawasaki on them

not all these votes are good to listen to cause people are just voting for their fav brand or by some story they hear

if you REALLY wanna know which one is the best get subscriptions to magazines like DirtRider http://dirtrider.com/
Motocross Action http://motocrossactionmag.com/
RacerX http://racerxill.com/ (these guys are good for whats happenin with the pros) but they just recently did a bike test

Dirt Rider and Motocross Action did Shootouts for the 250Fs back around December so check for the Shootouts

i read Yam & Hon are #1 Kaw & Suzuki are plain awful
each mag said different things about who is better between Yam and Hon
one honda CRF250R Review said they had blown out a front shock within the first hour of testing and they broke the shifter something that hasn't happend in 15 years of testing for them

CRF250 has more smooth power it slowly grows then slowly falls off
YZF250 has more 2stroke type power its just like bam its there but it keeps comin unlike a 2stroke

this is the 1st time Honda has ever made a 250F and they didn't learn from their 450F mistakes (i think they didn't fix those cause they didn't want the bike to cost to much)
but 1st year bikes are know to have lots of bugs

Yamaha has been making them since 2000 they know the problems they have the bugs worked out this year they just made a few small adjustments to the bike

Honda has Premium parts though like Renthal handle bars
i saw these bikes b4 back in December and i gotta say the honda's grip seat is better than yamhas

Yamaha's aren't known to break down easy like Ineedabettrbike said they will break just as fast as any bike out there their 4 strokes are very durable
i have an 03 YZF250 and i didn't change the oil the whole 1st year i had it and i just changed it a few times last month and its all good

cya later let us know how it goes

Having only ridden the Honda...I would have to say that would be the one for me. That seems to be the majority vote though...so I guess I'm not missing much. Tex Twister 393's CRF runs very well though!!!
