OK, the 2001-2005 YZ250F's are very good bikes. The 2001and 2002 did not come with auto decompression exhaust cams, but one from a 2003 -2006 will be an easy retro fit if desired. The 2006 units had a valve problem and a recall was issued, but many bikes were never fixed.

I owned a 2001 & 2003 and they were just the best bikes I ever owned. I did not like the later units after they went to the aluminum frames. The steel frame units just handled better.

Neighbor's kid had an 01. He beat it and beat it with no maintenance and it just kept running.
