Hi all,

After some recommendation as I just cant decide on what bike to get next, as i fancy a change;D

Some back ground info.

30 year old, 6 foot and about 13 1/2 stone with out gear

Been riding on and off since i was 13 and have a MX background, would say im a fast novice.

Currently my riding is about 50/50 small mx tracks in Doncaster,UK. (Uncle Eddies (hard pack), Fat cats, DMP(both sand)) and Woods riding, mostly at Tong (which is tight woods riding). I also enjoy going over obsticales such as logs and tyres,etc.

I currently ride a 2013 CRF 450, which i'll never use the full potential of and I do find it to be a little heavy, especially in the woods. I hated it at first in the woods as it stalled easily and a bugger to kickstart, when a foot deep in mud. I fit a rekluse which is amazing in the woods and at low revs but slips too much and causes a lot of heat and a loss of feel, especially at MX.

Im keen to go 2 stroke, Ive had 3 YZ's before and I remember the 2008 YZ 125 suspension to be the best ive had, but didnt have it long and only used for MX.

I ride only for fun, and have no intestest in using on the road, so see the extra money on enduro to be a waste. (road registered, lights,etc)

I'm looking at YZ 125 or 250 at around a 2010 era for my budget.

Im tempted to go Yz 125 as only weight 86kg dry compared to 96kg for the Yz250.

What would you recommend for me?
