Bike pick advice....??

8 posts in this topic

I'm about 5'11" and around 250-260 lbs and am wondering on which bike to get. The YZ426 or the YZ250F. I've heard stories of people being able to go faster on a 250F. I'm almost a novice, a few more weeeks of practice and I should be a starting out novice. With the 250F I'm afraid of the my weight/bike power ratio. Lookin' for some oppinions here....thanx.

I agree with you. I'd go no smaller than the 426. You need displacement, and the torque that goes along with it. Good luck with whatever you decide.

I'm 5' 11'' and 230 and have ridden a 250F and i own a '98 400. the 250 is a lot of fun , but for racing you need the extra push.
