Power
This bike will dump you off if you don't watch it. It has great low and high end power and will wheely through about any gear.
Ergonomics
It's a very comforable bike to ride.
Suspension, Front
Front end likes to sink in corners but otherwise it's great for jumping and pasture riding.
Suspension, Rear
Pretty soft suspension in the back compared to the newer bikes. Doesn't jar your teeth loose so I figure it's alright.
Brakes
I installed a double leading front brake shoe so the front brakes stop pretty well and the rear stop well enough.
Comments
Great bike overall I prefer riding it more then my 05 yz250

Power
To me, this bike has awesome power. I'm used to riding a 250 4-stroke and I'm only 120 pounds so this thing has no problem tossing me around. It likes to pop the front wheel up in ever gear.
Suspension
The front suspension is good the back is a little too stiff for my liking. It can be adjusted, I just haven't done it.
Brakes
They are drums. The front workes excellent, the back tends to lock up.
Comments
I'm used to riding a suzuki 250 4-stroke and this thing has a totally different felling, I love it. It probably is way to big for me but I have a blast riding it.

Power
Very fast. Gobs of power. Once you're out of first gear hold on. very strong powerband. I'm 5'8 160lbs so she doesn't really feel me on her back.
Suspension
Not too bad for an old bike. A little squishy but I might need a new tank for the rear suspension.
Brakes
Pretty good. Just set the rear to your style of riding.
Comments
Very fun bike. My bike is pretty well in mint condition so it's the one people come and take a look at down at the track. I used to be a fan of four strokes but after having this bike I'll never go back.
