I currently own a Suzuki DR-Z 400E but I a bike that is good for motocross too. I still trail ride a lot. I can't decide between the 426 and the 250f. Keep in mind im a pretty big guy.

Dan,
I am a newbie to the board but my two cents worth (from a 6'-1", 240 pound vet) is to go with the 426. I absolutely love my '02 426. It is like night and day from the XR 400R I got in 2000. The handling and power band are so good. I ride MX but I would not hesitate to take this bike on trails. My only changes were Renthal sprockets and chain (a 52 tooth rear) and Renthal bars (personal preference in bend.) Listen to the others on TT and try to wrangle rides on both bikes, and then decide. Good luck and keep us posted on your choice. Welcome to the BLUE SIDE!!!! :)

SOUNDS LIKE YOU NEED THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS A
WR426F. IT CAN DO BOTH WELL AND JUST CHAGNE THE SPRING WEIGHT TO MATCH YOU AND YOU WOULD BE SET. BY THE WAY I,M SELLING MINE IF YOU ARE INTERESTED. BUT A Y/Z IS A LITTLE LIGHTER BUT IF YOU WANT A FACT HEADLAMP AND THE HEAVIER FLYWHEEL WEIGHT FOR THE TRAILS TO HELP PREVENT STALLING THE WR WOULD BE THE BEST CHOICE. IF YOU ARE INTERSTED IN ONE I HAVE A 01 FOR SALE TO MAKE ROOM FOR MY 03. E-MAIL IS FSH4MNY@AOL.COM
