Etienne, I know you hate listening to BOB, but please listen to him this time.

You want to push the limits and thats good, you are young and thats what you are supposed to do :)
You wont be reaching the limits on a MX track with an enduro bike, or the other way round.

Decide what it is you want to do and get the best bike for your need.
You are probably going to tell me that you want to do enduro's but you also want to do some airtime over the table tops :)

Question though, and i will need the experienced ppl to jump in. I assume you will be riding to Zone7, thats why the road legal bike. Would a 4 stroke not be better for theses distances you want to travel?

You summed it up snafu, yes i dont like listening to bob :D ,and id like to ride to z7, its like 20km from my home. When we go riding with 2stroke dan and them we do like 110kms, he on a kdx and andre on a cr, so the 2stroke is up to it.
Especially the 300, which doesnt run so high

Ettienne, the advice you are getting on this thread is excellent. Remember that all the guys with 2t playbikes still have a D/S at home. On a YZ you will have fantastic times, but no "exploring" further away since the oil mixing and consumption makes it expensive. What will you use to go on WD runs with?
I"d say try hang onto the DRZ and look for a cheap KDX. [ for once forget the bling, get a workhorse!]

We have just rebuilt /  redone the top-end on one of the race bikes
- labour aside - all the parts, including smallend bearing and gaskets came to just over 2k - And that's for genuine KTM parts
I used to be indecisive, but I'm not so sure anymore

KTM used to be very expensive partswise, but has gotten more in line with the Japs now.

ktm parts are not that bad..re-build whole gear-box..with selector forks and big end bearing on a ktm 200 for under 3k

Nope!!!! I rebuilt my KTM 200 gearbox a couple of years ago. After I had negotiated a 45% discount it still cost me R9K for parts alone!!!! That included all gears, dogs and selectors - no seals and bearings (bought those a/market)

jeez...one of my selector forks broke off and made mince-meat of my gears...very sad day...even worse when you crack the engine and the first think you see are rotten teeth :(

Ok, so I have decided on a YZ250, that's what I want, and that's what I'll go for

Next question.
Wil the standard YZ, without wr box and flywheel, be able to do enduros? Or is that out of ze question totally?

Not out of the question but your life will be made a lot easier if you do the conversion.

The standard MX box has longer first and second gears, and shorter fifth and sixth gears than the WR box. This means that your low speed technical riding will have to be assisted with a lot of clutch when using the MX box, and top speed on the faster sections will be less.

The WR box combined with a weighted flywheel is a very worthy conversion imho.
