This. Literally the best bike I have ever ridden. I can't explain it, if you can ride one I am pretty sure you will understand why it holds its value so much.

Billy why haven't we seen carbon spokes yet? Taking into account that they are only subject to traction (as far as I know), and carbon fiber respond well to that situation.

I know a few engine builders that use 4140 for building race crankshafts. However is not the exact same application.

Would love to read a ride report of the BRC kit to know if it is a like a 250 2 stroke on steroids or like a 450. Because that crank looks BIG. I wouldn't want a 2 stroke with the inertia of a 450.

Still dreaming about an aluminum framed RM 250. Preferably with the older chasis. How cool does it look? Heck, would even sell my YZ to get one.

So.... the more cheesy aftermarket glitter the better..... as long as the photo is good? A proper restore to original is much more time consuming that a new bike with a bunch of aftermarket fluff on it....

Hi guys, I am thinking of getting an aluminum tank for my YZ 250. I know a professional welder who can make me one for 350 bucks. I really like the fact that it is hermetic (especially since I store the bike inside my house). So, my question is, can ... more »

I think this shows how crazy a 218 lbs CRF 450 is!! That's the weight of a YZ 250. Awesome job on that one.

I would love to see that, but I am also 99% sure they aren't. I think when Yamaha stop selling them they will just quit making 2 strokes. Hope it doesn't happen anytime soon, best bike I've ever ridden/had.

Nice bike, always loved the look of factory japanese bikes. Simple yet ever so cool. Have you weighed it?

Added reply in a thread Since we have time - 2 stroke pipe cleaning? 4/6/2020 2:42 PM

This is the method I find more interesting, cause I don't really like the idea of burning it up. The carbon build-up is pretty tough though, are you sure it will remove it? I already used a wire wheel in the end of the pipe and it was pretty hard to ... more »

Hi guys, I would like to know how can I clean the inside of a two stroke pipe. It isn´t bad right now, but since I can´t ride I figured what the hell. So any suggestions?

250sx vs 250sxf would be a good shootout

250 2 stroke vs 350 4 stroke. If they won't let us have equal displacement, then let's see how close these 2 are.

Well it depens on how many hours it has. But bushings wear out pretty quickly, I wouldn´t use them any longer than 30-35 hours. I personally change seals when they get leaky or at around 60 hours
