Default Poll: 2005 WR450 or 2005 CRF250X

     

I need help deciding what bike to get.
If you read the post in this forum titled 250f or 450f, you will see what we are talking about.
But i am a 31 year old and haven't ridden since i was a kid. 6ft 4, 225lbs roughly.
What bike should i get?
I am favoring the WR450 at the moment.
Absolutely necessary that i get a green sticker so both of these are green stickered.

I fixed your poll for you. I would think you'd be happier with the 450 considering your height and weight.

Alot of your decision needs to be based on how you will be riding, ( example: Motocross, Trail riding, etc.) I agree though, with your size, the 250F would probably be dissapointing after you ride it awhile.

Well, another change in plans.
A new bike might be just too much $$$ and i don't want my wife to be bummed cause by Christmas, she wants a Suzuki Z400 ATV.
So....
I am deciding to go used. I saw a good deal on a used 2002 YZ426, still green sticker, for $3500 with TONS of stuff. Basically the guy is 48 years old and is just getting rid of everything. Riding gear, stands, straps, etc.
So I think this might be better for me all around. A bigger bike, green sticker, all the extras that i would be spending $$$ to get new, plus saving a ton of money.
The bike had a Hot cam start as well as upgraded suspension, etc. The guy only trail rode it, etc. So i should be pretty amped.
I am going to check it out tonight and i will let everyone know how it goes.
Maybe some photos uploaded by tomorrow.

Thanks for all the help.
I truly do think that a 250 might be undergunned for me. I ride MTB stuff a lot with a full face helmet and i know once i get going on a dirtbike, i will want all the power so this 426 should be good for me.
Thanks,
Brian

PS. Plus i just picked up a TTR225 for my father in law cause he wants to go riding with us. Great bike for him and his size. Electric start, etc. Get the whole family going.

Default YZ426

Well, i bought the 2002 YZ426.
It was barely ridden and the guy was around 45 or so.
Brand new hot cam start as well as upgraded suspension, new oversize pegs, seat, pipe, and tons of extras. Plus tons of riding gear as well. I think i am better off this way cause i may have gone broke if i bought new. All this for $3600 seems pretty good to me.
Here is a link to some photos.
Some photos include my father in laws TTR225 though.

Xno,
You made a great choice

YZ426's are awesome bikes, seriously you can't go wrong with them.
Keep the oil and filters fresh, check the motor every so often and it'll run Forever...

A lot of people I know use YZ426's for off road/trail riding and they do really well, considering they're made for MX.
