New toy! 2018 TC 250 Photo

Coming off a old 01 YZ250 onto the Cadillac of two strokes, I picked it up from premiere powersports in Yakima WA today who were great to work with. No freight or set up 7765 out the door and 20 percent off any accessories at the time of purchase

I also picked up a rear spring PC pipe and 9oz FWW with it. Put the spring on this evening after CDL class got out

My boss was even gracious enough to let me leave work early to go pick it up!

I’m already impressed with the craftsmanship put into this bike, so easy to work on and very easy on the eyes Ride report coming tomorrow I can’t wait to go break this thing in wink

I think I’ll do that, noticed it was drooling already just after a quick cruise around the shop and have heard good things about them on this bike particularly. Planning on running motorex 60:1

Congrats, if I was to purchase a new bike this would probably be it. Or the orange version.

Don't waste your money on the JD kit. Go with the jetting I posted for it.

Well I finally got to ride it today, hands down the best bike I’ve ridden! The engine pulls nicely and doesn’t sign off as early as I thought it might. The thing is so damn nimble and light as well, I would almost say it’s like riding a 125 chassis with a 250 engine compared to my old YZ! I could put it where I wanted whenever just about. Very confidence inspiring

The air forks gave me no issues either, made a few adjustments and settled at 160 psi and slowed down the rebound on both ends by 2 clicks. But I’m still just breaking everything in so I’m sure I’ll be fiddling with it even more after a few seat hours

Really digging the flat and slender feel up front I really noticed getting over the front wasn’t even an issue unlike basically every other bike I’ve rode

The power seemed pretty linear (for a two stroke) I was really expecting an all bottom engine but was pleasantly surprised that it would pull a little longer than I assumed it would

I may have to change the bars and am definetly changing the jetting up before next weekend. I’ll also be on a watered and prepped track next weekend so I’m even more excited!

That is a beautiful bike, although I cant help to think how ugly my month old Euro Yamaha's looked back in the day, dirty white plastics.

Yeah I’m hoping magic erasers after every ride day do the trick

Very nice!

Try shout laundry cleaner. Only thing I’ve ever washed my bikes with and the white plastics come clean no problem. Magic erasers will take the stains out but will also dull the plastics in my experience with them.

That's a decent price OTD. Enjoy that thing, 2 Strokes all the way!!

Lots of wet sanding with fine grit sandpaper

can you do a review before and after the FWW ??

I had an 18 TC250 and went back to a CRF. Cant help but think the FWW would have made me like the bike more.

For sure, I ordered a 9oz. I’ve heard good things about them on both the sx and tc
