Yamaha TZR250 vs RGV250 ????

  1. Hei,

    Yes I have once again posted another query about what direction to take for a first bike but if you don't ask you don't know!

    I have only just got my L's and know that the TZR 250 (91 model) and the RGV 250 are two strokes/kick starters but does anyone advise against getting either of these two strokes?

    Not knowing a thing about mechanics and being new to bikes am I walking into a wall by purchasing a 2 stroke?

    I have heard horror stories about them constantly (every couple of weeks) requiring maintenance repairs and being difficult to ride for learners. Is this true?

    Although I am sure the CBR250RR and the ZX2's are great I would like something a little different and not feel like I am going to break the bank if I go dropping the thing. Knock on wood.

    Thoughts more then welcome!
