let me tell you all that i cant believe i ever rode a yz250.the power on this bike starts from idle. i hopped on my buddies 96 yz250 and the throttle felt very light and very underpowered to me. ill never ride anything but my 450. im happy to be aboard a four stroke.

Welcome new thumper. Always remember - There is always an exception to the rule...

Anyone remember the days of the KX500 and CR500? I had the opportunity to ride a modifued KX500 several years back.

Yet one more incident where a 2 stroke has forced an underwear change....

- RCD :thumbsup:

My buddy rides an AF500 (CR500 motor in a late model CR250 frame). I'm still faster than him. :thumbsup: That thing does throw some roost though..

That bike is almost 10 years old and probably has original rings.
I love these ancient 2stroke testimonials. Try an 04.
