Question by Bob: What year 250 two stroke dirt bike will get me the most for my money?
I am looking to buy a 250cc two stroke dirt bike. I have a 125cc two stroke and a 500cc two stroke and I definitely need something in between. My question is what year and what brand will get me the most for my money? I am only looking to spend $ 1,000 which will only get me about a 1999 250 two stroke around here. Or is it worth it to get like a 2001-2003 for more?

Anything over 5 years old is going to be pretty pounded, because, well, it’s a dirt bike and that’s what you do with them. Pound the tar out of them and have fun. Try to find an “adult owned” one as cheap as you can(because hopefully they at least did some actual maintenance) and use any extra money for new reed valves, fork seals and what not.
