    Depends on what you want and how many years old it is. Lets just say a 250F. I ride a YZ250F and 887 rides a CRF250. Brand new they cost about $5500. One year old maybe $4000. It's all relative.

    woah, not bad. i thought they cost like 8000 bux new. mtbs are just as expensive

    so the yz250 would be comparable to like...............a demo 9?

    a four stroker is ussally more than a 2 stroker by about 500ish. when i'm 18 i want to get a wr459f. they are almost 7k but they have a ton of power, good trail bike with the supension on an MX bike. i might try to make it street legal, but anyways sweet pics man, you yz250f reminds me of my ttr that i sold recently.

    Well....Mx is completly different from MTB. First off a YZ250 is a completely different bike than a YZ250F. The F stands for Four Stroke. The YZ250 is a two stroke. Nowadays 250F's are dominationg the 125 class. Next It not really comparable to a Demo 9 because in MTB the Demo 9 is like the king of bikes..not everybody racing DH at the amateur level has them. But when you go to the starting lines of one of our MX races there are 40 Bikes 90% of them are of the Japanese Foursome (Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki, Kawasaki). So everybody pretty much starts out with one of 4 bikes and the part that makes them special is the Mods you make to it. So unlike MTB we all start on the same basic platform in a way and they get better as we build them up from stock. Instead of some people having bikes with less travel etc. like in DH. Hope that helps some.

    P.S yah they cost about the same a Top of the Line MTB which is what kills me each time I look at a new MTB. All that goes through my mind is
    "No Engine Same Price! " But I like MTB enough to spend some money there too. Plus I use it to train for MX so that's how I justify it.

    that's funny based pics i've seen of you jumping your mtb. i'm just the opposite. i'm much more comfortable jumping dirt bikes. like anything, just what you're used to i guess.

    i didn't know you were supposed to lay off the throttle after you get airborn, both times i tried to go big and the bike looped out both times, making me land practically upside down. stitches galore, broken ankle and wrist....
    (edit: broken wrist the first time, broken ankle the second, crazy amounts of stitches both times...)

    nice nice!! i don't have an mx, but i know a lot (most?) of the top world cup dhers cross train on mx. so which is easier? mx or dh? mx looks knarlier to me, generally, but i guess it depends. probably a lot more work wrenching than a dh bike, given that engine thing. that's a sweet berm shot pic MX887... braaapp!!!!

    Well I guess you learned from experience. But for future reference or anybody else you don't want to shut off the throttle in the air completely. Revving in the air is called panic revving, it brings the front end up if it starts to dive. Shutting the throttle off in the air (especially on 4strokes) makes you nosedive do to engine braking, your wheel slows a lot while you are in the air but your bike is still moving at takeoff speed so when you land your wheel has to get back up to speed causing a harsh landing which brings about sideways bounces, looping out. You want to keep the throttle open a bit to keep that rear wheel singin for a smooth landing. and belive me I have learned from many hard landings, crahses, and trips over the bars.

    Ok. Really broad subject. All the Japanese companies have beginner bikes. Beginners usually start on trail bikes. Stay away from two strokes for your first bike! Believe me. Two stokres aren't like 4 strokes with a wide spread of power, they have a powerband and you have to keep the bike on teh power by using the clutch a lot. The power hits so hard to. I'm assuming you weigh about 150lbs just a guess. So Honda has the CRF230 which is a great bike to learn on. And Yamaha has the TTR-230 which is also an excellent biek to learn on. Both have electric starts so it fires at the push of a button. Fun bikes that you can learn on and progress into getting a race bike. But If you wanted to get a race bike right away to save money in the long run any of the companies 250F's would be ok to learn on because although they have huge power and torque. They also have the ability to putt around at low speeds until your ready to move along. My advice research. All the companies have websites, and you can pick up MX mags that will have helpful tips.

    a good trail bike would a use wr250f, not an mx, but almost, it's like the YZ205f but with head/brake lights and sligthly modified engine. still the same power and can be tuned. anyways the bikes are sweet and so are the pics.

    Thanks dude. Actually though the power on the two isn't quite the same the WR is way detuned to meet California Emissions standards which the YZF doesn't have to meet because it is a closed course competition bike. My buddy has a WR400 and after riding my YZ250F he was amazed by how much power it had and said it was about teh same as his WR400. And the fork on teh WR and YZF is completely different. A lot of people make the mistake of saying they are the same because they are both Kayaba inverted forks but they are different. That's not saying you Can't squeeze some serious power out of teh WR's though. There's a YZF in there somewhere waiting to be unleashed.

    he has that older bike and here in mass they are restricted but you can tune them to almost the YZ almost... cause i went to a dearly ship and they said the bikes engine are almost identical beside the jetting and some other mods. what state do you live in anyway?Also the wr400 was a break through back in the day but the yz250 was also a break through in design. you prolly are right about the power bewteen the wr and yz, but if you tune the wr to be like the yz it will almost be identical.

    I live in CT but all bikes are mandated to meet California emission standards because they are the most strict in the country. The 400 engine was a huge breakthorugh. The engine was debuted in 98 when Doug Henry raced teh national circuit on it and won the 250 title. Up to that point no one thought a four stroke could ever be competitive in the field of 2 strokes. That started it all. Now 99% of riders on teh National Circuit are on 4 strokes. And yes the engines are based on eachother so like I said there is a YZF hidden in that WR motor that can be brought out with proper mods.

    That pic really gives perspective to how big that jump is. I definitely underestimated earlier.

    Awesome pics fellas.
    I'm also a crossover athlete from MX. I started riding when I was like 8 or 9 on a little 3 speed Kaw 75, then got a CR80 when I was like 12 which I crashed alot. I got outta MX for a while after I got my drivers license but I moved to SC about 6 years ago and dirtbikes are like fleas on a dog down there. I started riding again with a crew of guys (no racing...just freeriding so to speak) I bought a used KX125 and outgrew that pretty quick and traded it for a CR250. I rode and jumped with my homies for about 2 years before I moved back here. Sold that bike 3 summers ago.
    MTBing is pretty big here and I had always ridden pedal bikes too so I naturally progressed into FR and DH and I'm loving it. I can say that jumping and drops are totally different on mtb...a lot less forgiving for sure. These guys will tell you, a 30 foot gap on a 2 stroke 250 is nothing even if you get a little squirrelly in the air, but I've gotten wadded up bad on little 10 foot doubles on my mtb. And it doesn't help that I'm used to charging it on huge gaps on a dirtbike and not being afraid of big stuff on my mtb...which gets me in sh!t a lot. I'm learning.
    I think both sports rock...MX is a lot bigger rush cause everything is faster and way bigger (not to mention the 2 stroke "braaaang" coming off a 70-80 foot kicker) but far more forgiving still than endoing into a rock garden at 40 mph in a DH race. I'm riding my mtb 3-5 times a week right now and loving it. Going bigger all the time....but my heart will always be in MX. BRAAAP!!
    You have bleed with Wallace.....now bleed with me!

    sick, i wish i could have gotten more into Mxing, but there are no tracks close to me and i had no riding buddies so it didn't work out. but in college i'm hoping that will change.

    i race in the 125 beginner class so if some1 has a 250f theres not much of an edge over the competion becuz every one has the same skill level. and ya i love riding 2 strokes it may reqiure more effort but thats the fun of it. 4 strkes just go thers nothing to it. and thanks for the compliment on the bike i love it alot. all ive done to it is put pro circiut pipe and silencer, v force reeds, and race tech revalved my suspesion wich now my suspension is stiff at the bottom of the strok but soft over small bumbs best money ive ever spent

    seems cool, but imo i like 4 strokes cause of less maintainance, and also i don't need to rebuild as much, but it's all good and you can't beat the sound of ra 2 stroker.

    if u have a race four stroke liek a crf or kxf then they are way more maintence than a 2 stroke. all i do to mine is change the oil and replace the top end evry 6 months. and change the air filter

    Mmmm....I still dig that flow green. My 125 was a 98, back in the day when the frame was green too. But I have to admit the CR made me a better rider. My next bike will be a CR. And I second the vote for 2 strokes....long live the screamers. (nothing against thumpers though) Anyway since we're havin show and tell here's an old shot of my 98 CR250 all pimped out....


    Later I shaved the seat and trimmed the plastic for seat grabs.

    even though 4 strokes need less maintainance .. when they do have a problem its big. if you have to get ur 4 stroke fixed it could cost wayyyyyyyy more tehn a normal top end build on a 2 stroke.. 2 strokes rock!!!!!

    I'm no good with computers. Plus it's just a freeze of the video of all day today. It's not just a clip. Maybe 249 could figure it out though.

    that is true but if you are careful you won't need to fix it
    one thing i like about 4 strokes is the clean fumes it has the 2 stroke has a lot of fumes(sometimes). but i love the 2 stroke but if i were to get a bike i would get a 4 stroke. Also has anyone ridden the 2006 or 05 Yz bike?

    i know what you mean, i was never afraid to jump with my dirtbike and do drops and stuff. Mtbing is different, i guess it's cause it's lighter and so teakable and stuff that you need to be more focoused.

And in the long run your four stroke is going to need a new top end eventually many racers do one each season and that can cost around $2000 with Valves, Pistions, Rings, Crakshaft etc. With a 2 stroke $100 bucks in parts each time but many racers do it every 3 races about. So all in all it's about even. In teh long run. But I'll never give up teh torque of my 4stroke. Today I bogged and stalled in a turn, pop started it as I was still rolling, GASSED IT, and with about 15ft of run in cleared a 40ft Table. Can't beat it.
    that is not what my daddy told me. but seriously you need to revuild every season? i though you would need to rebuild a four stroke every 2-3 years and 2 strokes every season... maybe my dad told me that was just from riding and not racing idk. but that is different from what i heard, but since you race and ride you are right imo. anyways talking about bikes makes me want to get a wr450f... real bad!!
