Tim Ferry was one of the first to make the switch to four-strokes in 2000 riding the Yamaha YZ426F, but only in outdoors. It wasn’t until five years later that he would make the switch from two-stroke to four-stoke in Supercross. The sheer power of the four-stroke did great in out-powering the 250 two-stokes outdoors, but the bike was heavy and hard to maneuver indoors.
Timmy’s light and agile 2004 steel frame factory Yamaha YZ250 was the perfect bike indoors in comparison to the four-stroke. Timmy started off the 2004 Supercross season with a bang getting a third at the first round in Anaheim where Team Yamaha swept the podium—all being on YZ250’s. Unfortunately, Tim only lasted two more rounds before he was injured and had to sit out the rest of the series.
