GET THIS BIKE! I absolutely love it and I consider myself a 4 stroke guy. This bike is crazy. Bottom line, ridiculous. Has been ripped out of my hands before, it's just that strong. Yamaha is renowned for terrible bottom but amazing mid and top. It has alright bottom, AMAZING mid and pretty good top. Make sure you grab the next gear once it starts to fall flat otherwise you will get thrown over the bars. Chug and lug or ride it like Stewart and it will still go fast. Pulled holeshots over 450s and 250fs all day. It just falls into corners wanting to get out of the corner fast and very smooth and down the next straight. Handles like a 125 but has the power of a dragster. Loves to be whipped, it was made to whip. The forks are a little harsh and bottom quite a bit but need the compression to be turned out a few clicks. Shock is pretty good, not bad. The chassis is not as good as my 04 crf250r but the motor make up. It packs the heaviest hitting motor I've ever ridden and I've swung legs over 450s and 700 quads. It's sometimes uncontrollable and I love it. I'll be putting V-Forces on it for more bottom and mid for the trails. All in all, buy this bike, will not be disappointed. Honestly, greatest all around bike, trails, freeriding, racing. No problem, bring it on, the bike will just eat it up

I have been riding for a little over a year now and this bike is amazing. I can jump it as high as I want to. Sometimes a little too high. It has the power to bring the front tire off the ground in every gear. I'll race people at local parks and everyone thinks I'm crazy just because I'll ride wheelies doing well over 80 mph for miles. The bike has a lot of power but it is easy to control. I'm not really good at MX, but when it comes to Enduros, no one can catch me. The suspension of this bike lets me hit roots, rocks and bumps wide open and hardly feel them. The only downside of this bike is that I wish it had a little bit more on the top end. A stock YZ250 will probably do 70 mph. I have mine geared to probably reach 85-90. I would like to hit the 110-120 range. But that's the only downside to the bike.

Had this bike for about 2 months now and I absolutely love it. The power is unbelievable...I'm 6' 220lbs and I can barely hold on for dear life sometimes!! As I've read in a few other articles I have to agree, the suspension is a bit stiff, but a small price to pay for such a killer motor..

Just the other day I test drove the 2003 yz250 and it was unbelievable. The power,control,and the handling was the best of the 250 class I've ever seen. My buddy got an 1998 suzuki rm 250 and he couldn't believe the power of the yamaha. To narrow it down the 2003 yamaha yz250 is the best motocross bike on the go today......

I just bought a new YZ 25O and man did it have power.. i rode my freind Cr 250 and i thought it was quick.. but i am an yamaha man so i decided to buy a yz 250. and the yamaha kicks its ass... it pulls the front tire right off the ground in every gear. the suspenshion is a little hard but i got used to it. the only thing i hate about it is the seat, it is way to hard, but $100 you can get and aftermarket seat and gives it a softer ride... Wow i love the bike
