Wife authorized a new YZ125...
« Reply #15 on: September 19, 2012, 04:33:53 AM »
I don't need the fastest bike, I need the bike I'm fastest on.  The SSS (re-sprung) is ready to race.  I'm so much more comfortable on the YZ.  That goes a long way.  Oh yeah, I get parts at dealer cost.
 
You should get the 2013 KTM150sx, that thing would rip WAY more than the yz
You should quit school, get a job, and buy one. It's your money. Best of luck!!

Thanks for the replies! Oh, and I'm deployed for months at a time. It makes the old girl feel special by exercising some control over my life, as she knows in reality she has very little.
if I could afford a brand new bike... :O I stuck with the 2000-2004 range right now, I have an 01

The SSS suspension is great, but I can't call my self a 2-stroker then support the 4-stroke brands. All that money is going straight to supporting 4-strokes.
What you should do is get a 2013 TM 125. 2-stroke supporting brand, better motor than the Yamaha, better quality and part spec'ing, AND now has the KYB forks as well as their killer factory shock.

Jesus, you'd think I was buying a four stroke!

But seriously, if anyone in the GA/TN/SC area sees one at the dealer, let me know.

Same reasons I went for the YZ. My 08 YZ250 is much faster than the 125 or even a 150SX. The 125 is exactly what I want. No dealer cost for me but I get a fair deal.

Haha.... So true. TM also makes 4 strokes... Why does that not qualify them as a 4 stroke brand? Glad you got what you wanted Motoxr377 and the YZ is a fine choice... These other guys are jealous and would dump their old iron in a second for new YZ.

This one looks pretty good with the white fender. '97 style!

Hey 377, we will be at Durhamtown on the first half of thanksiving week. Screaming eagle track (MX 4) is our little favorite. They also mellowed out the Bomber track so us mere mortals can ride it too. FYI there are some Tampa area dealers on Crailslist with new 2012's at 5700 to 5800. May be a gimmick but worth a shot. Beware of the barneys ad since they are bait and switch.

Look at the end of the day, buy the bike you like more. BUT! if you want to buy a YZ, don't get a 2013. Get an 08 second hand and polish it up. Saves you about 1 grand atleast (pure speculation). Thats my advice, unless the white rear fender makes the bike go way faster. If you're truly determined to go with the YZ, go you. Do it and show the foopers that the two strokes are still winners. But don't do it under false pretenses, look at your options and buy the bike you like the most. If suspension is the only thing that is making you lean towards the YZ, then the money you save by buying the KTM will be almost enough to get some suspension work done, making it just as good as the SSS.

Whatever way you slice it, buy the bike you want. KTM has more power and with 500 or so dollars put into the suspension it will be as good as the YZ. But if you feel like you're rider a bull instead of a KTM 150/125 SX, go with the YZ.

Whatever you decide, I'm looking forward to some videos

I went to the dealer to talk numbers. Terrible.
I'm shopping for 09-up now, they're half of a new bike in price.

At this point you could look for a husky cr125, might even still come with a 144 kit..

It does in Aus, in fact they're even willing to fit it for you at no extra charge at a Brisbane dealership I think. Be warned: The Husky comes with a mikuni carby which has earned a very bad name among the hondas. The huskys are a great bike though and good suspension, cheap as chips too. They do of course, give up horsepower to the KTM. But I'm still deciding whether to go with that or the KTM.

Good luck on the new bike! Get what makes you happy!

I'd stay away from Monster Mountain MX if it has rained alot or looks as it will while you are there, it's mostly clay and gets slicker than snot when it rains, it's an awesome track and facility though, so on a dry day it would be prime.

For those of you that live around North Georgia and Alabama, There is a new track in Phenix City, AL that is pretty good! Just across the state line form Columbus, GA. The Guy that built it originally bought the land for hunting, but ended up putting a really nice track on it! One lap is about 1.5 miles. It has a real natural rythym/feeling to it, and its mostly sand( not Clay). You can look it up on Faceboook at Phenix City MX. The guys name is Warren Tyson, very nice and loves to ride. He is always looking to improve the track and is available most days to open it up. Its a little off the beaten path, but well worth the drive to ride a great track! I rode it last February with my Dad when we were down there visiting family. Warren has done a great job, and the track has come a long way since he opened it up!

Yamaha takes 100% of the 2-stroke profits and dumps it into 4-stroke updates. They don't give a $hit about the 2-strokes. TM on the other hand likes 2-strokes and continues to develop them. I would prefer giving my money to someone who will use it to update their 2-strokes and not throw it all into the foopers. TM at heart is a 125 2-stroke Kart engine manufacturer.

^^^ While I agree with you for the most part, I am not going to make a guy feel like crap for chosing a Yamaha.... Any new 2 stroke is better than a 4 stroke in the end.

True.

And you can take the piss all you want about not buying an 06 and spending some coin tarting it up -

but if everyone did that, there won't be any 3 year old '12s in 2015. And hell, maybe yamaha will pull the pin on the yz range on the basis of no sales.  Dangerous slippery slope that one. And it is still a new bike, not one that has been beaten like a red headed stepchild for the last 5 years.

Good stuff Michael...  I actually considered a used YZ, but after figuring in all of what it needed, I went new.  There is always splinter cells in any "movement"... The fact is, Yamaha IS supporting two strokes by producing them... And there 250f side isn't exactly cutting edge... The other 3 Asian companies are 4 stroke companies only.

Less 2t's isn't the answer to a revolution.

377, get your NEW YZ & shred!!!!
