Default Well I rode the '05 YZ125

....and i rode it right after getting off my '04, so i could tell every little difference in it...

right off the bat when sitting on it and leaning it side to side, it feels a LOT lighter...then i took it out on the track and the frame feels more rigid when your hoppin it around....anyways it almost felt like an all plastic bike after getting off of mine, i mean i know its only 10lbs but it feels so much lighter....i cant even explain it!

the engine screams too! it seems to hop up into the top end a lil quiker than mine, maybe its because the transmission is a 6 speed again instead of a five like mine....

anyways, this machine, when mastered, WILL demolish all 125's and give all the 250F's a run for their money, i didnt have much time on it, and it wasnt my bike so i didnt go and take the big jumps on the track but man i would love to whip the crap out of it!

anyways, if your lookin to buy a 125 this year, there shouldn't be a second thought in your head, the YZ is WICKED!

Racer X did a test ride and they said it was the best 125 they had ever ridden. Light and full of power. Read the article:

http://www.racerxill.com/071704_RX_Rides_05YZ125.cfm

They tested all the 125's and they weren't too keen on some. Especially one that starts with a S and ends in uzuki.

thats crazy, cuz Suzuki was the best 125 in a lot of last years shootouts....

does anyone know if the '04 YZ125 won any shootouts at all??

I read on one of the online mags an 05 RM125 test; they hated it. Read elsewhere an 04 CR125 test. they loved it. go figure.
