I am 99% sure that some aftermarket restyle kit will be available. However, I hope that it also includes a 22 replica seat, as it is not the same as the previous one. If not, you need the complete plastic kit, new tank, new seat and new airbox. Exhaust ... more »

If you don´t mind me asking, what size of filler wire are you using? And what's the wall thickness of the cone? Apart from that, this is so incredibly cool.

I also have a 250, and I am really interested in updating the bodywork. The most expensive parts would be the complete seat and the fuel tank, however I'm sure there will be aftermarket options. I can't justify selling my bike to get a new one just for ... more »

I need that bodywork for my YZ. The only Japanese brand that still builds two strokes. Kudos to them.

How many of the 'real racers' posting here have ever ridden on a supercross track?

Nothing to add. Excatly what I felt when I had a 2012 KX450F. Curious to see if the new 450's or 250 F's are different, but I didn't know how much I hated that bike until I rode a YZ 250. Sold it, bought a YZ 250 and have never looked back.

Reply to Zero-emission doesn't mean it has to be an electric motorcycle 12/1/2020 3:24 PM

I think biofuels are the answer. By using ethanol, for example, all the carbon emitted will be absorbed by the growing crops (say corn). So basically all your emisions are recycled in a natural way. I love IC engines, yes they are less efficient, yes ... more »

I wouldn't have updated the plastics. This bike is straight out beautiful.

Of course! That's why I suggest the torq drive. The torq drive clutch has steel friction disks (and 12 of them). They are pretty much bullet proof. And yes, he is absolutely hammering that clutch out of corners for sure.

Reply to Tomac and that Kawasaki 8/30/2020 9:15 AM

If I were his mechanic, I would buy a Rekluse Torq Drive, get a cnc-machined spacer so I can use the Hinson clutch cover and make everyone happy. You simply cannot burn steel friction disks in 20 minutes.

Reply to is this low enough? 8/24/2020 2:25 PM

I don't even know how can you lean a 4 stroke like that, let alone a 450. Dude's a beast

Thanks for the compliments guys! I couldn't thank him enough, this was really one of my dreams. I don't know if it performs just the way we want it to, but we will test it and cut, reshape, weld as necessary. It weighs (according to my not so precise

New thread YZ 250 stainless steel cone pipe 8/10/2020 11:15 AM

Hi guys, check this out. I had a local exhaust manufacturer build me a stainless steel cone pipe for my YZ 250. Laser cut cones, tig welded with back purge method. Pictures don't do it justice. The bechmark was the stock pipe and the FMF Fatty.

Reply to 450 back to 2 stroke 8/3/2020 4:19 PM

I can ride twice as long and just as fast on my YZ 250 compared to my previous KX450F. And on the kawi I had the suspension set up for me, Rekluse Core EXP 3.0, Yoshi exhaust, etc. I don't like 450s. I still don't understand how people say 4 strokes ... more »

I might be crazy, but to me both look better than the KTM. Especially with that 90's graphics

Reply to 2021 RMZ450 7/13/2020 6:31 AM

YZ's haven't changed much since 2006 and I still can pass guys riding 2020 450's on mine.... some people blame their bikes but it is their lack of skill that make them SUCK.
