YZ400f

Do you guys think a YZ400f would be to fast for a 13 year stepping off a 2003 RM125.Also is the 400f a good motocross bike?

That thing is going to feel like a tank to a 13 y/o compared to a 125. Whats his height and weight?

He's about 5'4 and 170pds,he cam throw that 124 around pretty good though

at 170 pounds the bike shouldn't be too bad for him sounds like a big strong kid his height I guess doesn't matter since he is already on a full size bike.

ha hes just kinda chubby lol

Ya thats not what I meant. . .if I were you I would be more concerned about a bike only worth 1200-1500 blowing up after you buy it and having to do a 2000 dollar rebuild. I would stay away from any four stroke over 5 years old as it costs more to fix them than they are worth.

ya i know,and ya thanks ill keep looking around for a 250f if the 400 isnt in good cond

On the money. $1400 to get it, $2000 to reburbish it. Now keep in mind I now have a brand new 1999 YZ400F and my reasons are my own as to why I spent the money; however I'm not going to be racing it. Except for trail time, she might MIGHT see some pavement. Probably never a groomed track or competition. For competitive motorcross I would agree and put the money towards a much newer bike with a lot less headaches.

then again, wouldnt be a bad idea to go with something inexpensive in the even he doesnt like the switch.

the 400/426 are pretty reliable. so if the maintenance is good, i dont think that should be an issue.
