Default 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

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.

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
