    Hi guys, I’m over in the vintage / left kicker forum normally, but have headed this way for some more modern advice.

    I race a vintage enduro series on a 79 250. Most events are two days, you enter either day or both as they are run as separate days.

    I’m thinking of getting a 90’s 250 to race the Sunday when the tracks roughed up, I’m I’m tired from the first day!

    From say 1989 - 1997 are there any years to avoid, say a bad handler or worse particularly unreliable, or hard to find parts for?

    I’m by no way an expert racer, so not looking for the most competitive bike of the eara, just something fun and reliable!

    Cheers

    I agree with 2premo 93 and newer would be best but a good condition 92 is really close to those.

    Just look what parts are available first, Italian Husky sometimes are hard to find parts for
