I've narrowed my choices down to two (I'm just waiting to hear back about my first choice before I proceed any further) but I was wondering what bike you like best and why. And Bill, I already know your answer LOL.

Yamaha YZ 250 the best 2-stroke there is

Most recently I've ridden
KX 250 2003 - nice mid range powerband
CR 250 2003 - she was very flat (but she may have been beaten)
YZ 250 2003 - even power all the way through

I prefer powerbands for track and even power for trail.

I vote for YZ 250 (but I'm biased)

Yamaha has recently been the majority winner of most 250 shootouts....mainly for the motor...and ok suspension....fit and finish...always yamaha or honda...do some searches and get educated....some years are alot better than others

I just picked up a CR250 aboot a month and a half ago and it's a buttload of fun on the trails, I have no basis for comparison as far as 250's go but I can say it's a wicked bike

Yamaha I my brand!

I'm on the look out for a YZ 250 (1979 through 1981) to use as a trail bike and race in Vintage/Evolution stateside. I had one back in the day and it was a fun bike except when I hit square edged bumps. Hope to find something soon as I'm going stir-crazy watching all my bud's out riding while I sit at home....

YZ or RM 250 is pretty much the only way to go.

I've owned a CR250R for 2 years now, and it's...well....I'm switching to Suzuki hahaha.

The 2006 and 2007 YZ250 has some of the best suspension out there and the motor is absolutely the best.

Well I got a 2003 yz250. It has an honest 20 hours on it, super clean with a factory service manual,new chain and sprockets (as well as the stock ones in a box showing no wear at all),bark busters, skid plate, pipe guard, new bars, new back tire, a whole Yamaha top end brand new in a box and a full set of brand new factory plastics still in the package. I took it to vedder on sunday and was really happy with it. What a fantastic machine! Now to get some motard wheels laced up and see if I can keep the front end down on the pavement.

The CR250 is an ok bike but on the bottom of the pile. When it comes to 2-strokes they have done nothing with them for a few years now. Their only focus these days is on their 4-strokes.

true, i'm not saying they're the front runner, i've just always felt most comfortable on them because of their positioning and feel. it's the 250 i've found suited me the best. I rarely use anything but the first 3 gears anyways.
