i currently have an 02CR250R and its getting tired and im tired of throwing money into it so im going to sell it and get a yz450f but idk much about them. i had a crf450 but i heard the yamahas are more reliable and want to make the switch, so any info on the yamaha yz450 would be really helpful. anything such as which years to stay away from and pros and cons the bike. Thank You

Any year yamaha four stroke will be reliable, but I would definitely try for an 06 or newer. They are aluminum framed and have MUCH better suspension than previous years.
