Great bike.. I remember riding there@ the creek with a guy on the 1987 CR250 that Rick Ryan won the daytona supercross on. He bought it from Matson after the season. Motor had some cool internal mods done by a guy from your town... Sacramento.

Thanks... sounded like the guy that told me this had the same issue with the 14-18 F's... same basic head design in terms of the distance from the cylinder edge to the water jackets. Hmm..... What a bummer Yamaha just doesn't build one (350). they would ... more »

19 YZ250F and 20 YZ250FX share same cams... that's what the parts fish said... Earlier years FX's had different cams but looks like the 20 model went with the F cams too. I've heard the BigBore kits on these blow head gaskets often due to their not being ... more »

Let me help you... YZ250FX... feel better? Same motor and chassis (except a 6th gear and softer valving).

Any by the way anyone that thinks a KTM 350 XC-F handles as good as a new YZ250F is NOT going fast enough! The YZ out turns it and is more stable in the ruff.... My 5 cents.

Looking at that option currently.....

Did they change the frame/head angle? I have the fork working very well... different internals etc.

I have a 16 KTM 350 XC-F. Lots of suspension work and a few tasteful mods. Rode a 2016 YZ250F. That YZ handles much better than the KTM. It just turns really well... really planted front end the carves a flat corner much better IMO. Now, if Yamaha made ... more »

Bought the N2D/ Luxon knuckle for a 2016 KTM 350XCF. I was trying to valve the shock to my liking and kept running into issues with having to have the low speed valving super soft to get small bump compliance I like... only to have the shock bottom too ... more »

I was really sad to hear Ron passed. I used to talk to him once a month or so. He would have been perfect for this project. There has to be a few engine builders that know this motor... the head in particular.

Anyone have a good engine guy they use to do their head work on the 2019 YZ250F? I'm building up a 270 cc bigbore one and want to have the had ported. I used to use Ron Hamp but sadly he's no longer with us. So, looking for someone that really knows ... more »

I purchased one of the Luxon/ N2 dirt KTM knuckles. They were very helpful and even gave me a starting point for the rebound shim stack. Which saved me a ton of time! I would certainly do business with them again.

You folks at Luxon are doing some nice work. Keep building up the product portfolio, crow about it and good things will happen.

In my opinion, and that's all it is, Reed could have simply said "I can't sign that, sorry. But let me tell you why"... That's it. Explain the position to keep a rejected fan from spinning it. Here is why I can't or won't.... Heck, he may have even done ... more »

The luxon link is quite a bit different in dim's... here it is compared to the stock 350 XCF (2016) link.
