I might be in a spot to trade one of my banshees for a dirt bike in the next couple of weeks, but I really dont know much about the dirtbike world, i want a 250 2 stroke and essentially all I know is later model cr250's had an aluminum frame. Other then that I dont know much, Ive always ahd a thing for yamahas but im open to any of the main 4 at this point. Is there anything I should know about there early 2000 models (maybe late 90's) that should steer me towards or away any of them?

i know anything older than 2000 and is a 2-stroke bike isn't worth nearly as much as a running shee.
the cr250af is nice. that would be what i would look to trade for. the newer the better.

He is right about the value of the older bikes to a banshee. Dirt bikes are awesome.

In our area they seem to be going for about the same but these shee only has pipes on it and we only have about 700 into it including purchase so I'll come out ok if the bike I get is in good shape

Dirt bikes are a blast though i like them personally better than quads. Im sure its going to be really nice when you get it all done. cant beat the price.

I'm a Quad guy because I'm hooked on drifting sideways.
