Ok, heres the deal. Already got 2 250f's. Had a 426 loved it but sold it to buy a new 04 250f. I know I'm faster on a 250f. But son wants to race both 125 and 250 classes this year. We love yamahas but don't want one to have a motor like a Honda we want a Yamaha "hit".Rode a 03 and 04 450 and liked it.Have you guys done anything to the 05 to bring the hit back? If I can't get it to run like we want it to I think We'll buy the new Yz 250 and give it a try.Any input is greatly apprec. will be getting bike in next 2 wks.
