I had an 08 125 that lasted like 300 hours on a bottom end, and I had an 08 144 that blew up on jumps twice. The new ones are far and away the best on paper, but I have not ridden motocross in almost 9 years.

I think they are great but it's all up to what the rider wants as far as how the bike feels. The yamaha is a tall ass bike. lol.


Well what I meant was they are the most reliable.


still the best bikes anyways tho


I agree a mate has a 2002 wr250f Only ever had 1 rebuild and still rides like brand new, Love the yamis

Isn't the more important question "is KTM worth the extra money?" Of course the frame snapping issue seemed to get that internet fake news boost, but it still must affect some decisions. Back in the day they had trick aftermarket parts as stock and were the best, but haven't most companies caught on?

right now i have a 2009 yz250f and its been nonstop problems. every time i get to the track i dont know if it will start or not. hyped to get an alta

you bike only has problems because you dont maintain it properly in 450a we get 2 years out of one bike without even shimming it and this was back from 01 to 07
