I need to look into this thread for what the aftermarket has available.
If you are looking for a more aggressive dirt bike that is lets say 75% dirt and 25 % street go with the Yamaha. I have had my 250 L since August and I love it. Depending own your talent level and what you want to do the Yam and the Honda are both good bikes. I see guys spend big bucks to get their Honda suspension on par with the Yam or other more dirt oriented bikes. The Honda is a great valu but it does have limitations. You get what you pay for.
