Sounds like a valve issue to me. Check clearances and do a leakdown.

There seems to be issues with stuff getting past the air filter on the yamahas. Not sure if its an issue on the 2020 but something to keep an eye on.

Purple power or simple green for in your house. Using hot water makes a big difference too. I use a 5 gal bucket with hot water and it does the trick. They make submergible heaters if you want a heated tank without having to fill it every time

Casting flaw and theyre replacing it with another cast piston.. Cast aluminum is prone to cracking in the first place in high load situations.

If youre as good as you say you are, you wouldnt be on the internet trying to validate yourself to people who dont care and that you dont know. Your best bet is to make another new account and stop acting like an idiot. Nobodys impressed.

Added reply in a thread How would you feel if you bought this bike? *Important Update* 11/15/2019 3:56 AM

Well hopefully you didnt pay any more than $2500. Replica or not its a used cr250. That sucks though. I usually expect that kind of poor work when i buy a used bike, but this is certainly over top. On the plus side, it will be a nice replica once repaired. ... more »
