Forloop is right. I have both and they are very different. They each have a style of riding they like. Need more info in order to help you out.

Regardless of your riding style, at 200lbs, you may be just a little too heavy for a 125. If your contemplating a 426 or a 125, you should throw in a 250F into your considerations. To get a 125 to go, especially with someone who weighs 200 lbs, you really would have keep the baby wound out. That would make it really tough if you were gonna go trail riding. I've seen smaller guys than you ride 426's really well, but that is where your riding style comes into play as posted above.

I used to ride nothing but 125's. Now I ride a 99' 400. Can't stand to ride my son's 125 anymore. I keep looking for the rag stuck in the intake :)
