Question Would you guys do this trade???

Hey guys, I have someone who wants to trade their 2009 kx250f for my 2005 yz250 two stroke. Pics below, lmk what you think.

Couple things holding me back:
-He's over 3.5hrs away
-Couple registration issues but I can get them figured out.

Mine: 2005 yz250


His: 2009 kx250f

Well it looks like you are getting a newer bike for no extra cash on your end. Seems good to me if you like riding 4 strokes.

Yea, he's telling me he "never raced". I know how that goes, I'm an ex racer (ie screen name). Just know nothing about kawi 250s

They all run the same ha. Never raced usually means beat to hell. Motors last longer than top end on 2 stroker too.

I dont know man, its gonna be alot less umph. You're moving from a 250 smoker which is close to a 450 thumper, so the kx is gonna be like being on a 125 2 stroke. They did alot of good changes on the 2009, the last of the carb'd green machines, but you cant beat the reliability of a 2 stroke and a yamaha. I have had 2 YZ250f's now and my 125 was so easy to maintain. And EFI has its pro's and con's as does carb'd. In the end the kx will likely cost you more in upkeep and unlike a 2 stroke at some point it will come to its end (not cost feasible to rebuild a 4t engine). Just my 2 cents.

I have other bikes (two 450's).The yz is just a play bike for now. Still so undecided.

I would do the trade. The frames on the kx are the same ones as the yz. in '06 they redesigned the frame for the yz and they were the best. i had a '08 yz250f. Check it out and find out how many hours are on the bike

The 2005 frame on my bike is the same as the 2012. The forks changed in the 2006 to the SSS forks. Which are on my bike from a 2008.

Paperwork is sometimes not worth the hassle, I have friends that have bought bikes for cheap but then end up with way overdue registration or lean holds. Just make sure its legit.

Dew it. My buddy has an 07 kx250f and loves it. He got it last summer at a pawn shop for 1000 below blue book. Never had any problems besides replaced the fork seals. Has a good amount of power.

Then again, I ride a 09 200xcw, and I love my 2 stroke

Yamaha designed the heads in my truck so I would certainly own one of their bikes or atvs. In my opinion, Yamahas, Hondas, and Kawis are all pretty good.

Never ridden a bike but my Kawisaki bayou has been pretty bullet proof for a 13 year old four wheeler.

No team red unless you wanna deal with valves and doing the top end every 20-40 hours with their titanium nonsense. They do handle amazing, same can be said for the yellow. Cant speak for KX250f's, though my roommates has had non stop electrical issues (first year for EFI). My 2012 yz250f carb'd however thinks its fuel injected.

DON'T DO IT!!! There is no comparison between the two bikes. Who cares if it is a 2009 if it is a 250f and you are used to a two stroke. I had the yamaha WR250X and my brother has a YZ 250 and there is no comparison even though my 4stroke was fuel injected and hopped up. Pretty embarrassing when a bike with knobbies smokes a bike with street tires on pavement.

Keep the SMOKER!! Your gonna regret it.

I have a couple of CRF 450Rs and a YZ 250 2t and they both have their advantages, I would never sell the YZ, I would sell one of my CRFs in a heartbeat.

I have had some newer 250 4ts and dont care for them, would rather swing a leg over the YZ.

Hey Speed freek, I did do the trade! You were too late! But honestly though, the bike is a cool bike. I have it town down to bare frame and am going through it all. Just saw the new 2014s are coming out and am prolly gonna liquidate all my other bikes too lol for one brand new bike.
