For trail riding I find my 426 easier to ride than my XR250, you can be a lot lazier with your gear changes and it'll lug up anything, I've yet to stall mine on a hill climb, if it starts chugging (if you got to this stage on my XR it was too late), open the throttle a bit more and you're off.
There is nothing wrong with the older generation YZ/WRs, Yamaha got it right from the word go. I've had less problems with mine than my XR gave me and I've probably put more miles on it. Also if you do ever get round to motarding it, it'll be a lot more road friendly than your YZ250F.
The only thing that it won't be quite as good for is really tight single track and hard racing, but for reasonably relaxed trail riding and street use, go for the 426 .
