If you are looking for a change from your 450 but are not willing to power down to a 250F then go with a YZ250 smoker. They are awesome bikes and super versatile.

I have ridden both of them and like both of them. At your age and weight, I think a 250f would be a great weapon. You will have to be a little more aggressive and more precise in the corners to make sure that you have the drive to clear the jumps. The 450 wil make a rider lazy. I always enjoyed riding my 250F's and still think about changing back from the 450, but a 55 yrs old and 195lbs, I am not a precise enough or aggressive enough rider to think that my lap times would be equal or better than my 450. If you can borrow one and check lap times, this will be information that will be helpful.
Good luck.
