changed my mind
i was gonna pick up a 2000 yz250, but i think i wana get a 2006 or newer now. it should be easier to get some after market parts plus it has an aluminum frame. it seems like a no brainer to spend and extra grand to get a lighter bike

just as long as you get a bike to ride

the weight may actually be closer than you think, but the suspension is on a different plane alltogether and as you say well worth the extra G if you have it to spend. Not like you will need much in aftermarket parts.

like ossa said newer bikes are pretty much as good as they come

its also gonna be a little longer than i thought for buying a bike. i was gonna this summer but i just got on a fishing boat and this job lasts till january, so ill be doing some good old winter riding as soon as i get back. and i like the older bikes particulary from about 94-00 but they seem hard to find parts for and they all have hidiously beat plastics. i know dirtbikes take some abuse but i like it when its got the origonal style graphics, i used top love the NCY graphics for the 93-95 yzs but they dont make stuff like that anymore
