This is my third YZ250 in the last eight years, and I had two YZ125's before. I am totally sold on Yamaha 2 strokes' reliability, broad power band, flickability, overall they are the do-all package.
They have been bullet proof, and cheap to maintain. I've had a couple other brands before these, and nothing has compared to the overall joy of owning and riding a YZ 2-strokes.
