Why? The stock YZ250F is already a cheater bike in the 125 class!

So what? Your 426 is a cheater in the 250 class.

Actually, NO. The extra weight of the 426 makes it a bit of a tank compared to a 250cc 2 smoke. Sure the power might be a little more but the over all advantage is nill since a 250 2stroke makes plenty of bottom end compared to a 125. It mainly depends on the condition of the riders. Sure you might be able to pull a holeshot, but stamina wins races.

The gap is much farther apart in the 125 class.
