YZ250 Plastics


CaptDan

1996 thru 2001 YZ125s & 250s share body parts.

 

Any YZ/YZF front fender up to 2009 will bolt right on.
Cost? Free.
Time? 10 minutes.

 

A 2006 and up front number plate will fit with this modification:
http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?p=9572623#post9572623
Cost? Almost Free.
Time? 30 minutes.

 

A 2002-2010 YZ125/250 gas tank will fit with this modification:
http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=535826
Cost? $5-10.
Time? 1-2 hours.

 

The 2002-2010 side panels & rear fender will fit with this modification:
http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?p=7780365
Cost? Not much if you do the work yourself (welding required). $1-200 if you hire someone to do the work.
Time? 1-2 days.

 

These cost estimates do NOT include the cost of parts.

 

Is it worth it? In my opinion the 1996-2001 YZs are good-looking bikes.
A 2006 & up front number plate and fender help them look a little 'fresher', (and maybe the gas tank swap), but anything more than that is just throwing your time and money away.

Absolute genius Capt!

 

I honestly like the looks of the 96-2001 but with the blue frame over white with OEM color plastics. If all white plastics are used, and white/clear oversized tank with a good choice on graphics the bikes would look even sweeter in white.

      Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Rally Star Earns Third Overalll at the 2018 Edition of the Event in Morocco
      April 20, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Determined to wrap up his week-long adventure in Morocco on a high, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Pablo Quintanilla has topped the fifth and final stage of the Merzouga Rally to secure a solid third overall in the event’s final overall standings. Continuing to make progress Andrew Short has claimed a spot inside the top 10 in the overall.
      Featuring a mass, motocross-styled start in the dunes of the Merzouga Desert, the fifth and final stage of the event saw Pablo Quintanilla put in a dominant performance. Posting the fastest time for the day, the Chilean rally star solidified his strong third position in the overall standings.
      Putting in his best individual stage performance Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Andrew Short crossed the line in eighth position. Wrapping up the Merzouga Rally 10th in the overall, the American is content with the progress he made during the week in Morocco.
      The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team will return to action at the third round of the 2018 FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship, the Atacama Rally in Chile on August 11/19.
      Pablo Quintanilla: “Today was a really fun stage. We had the motocross start and it was good to battle with the guys from start to finish. I got off to a good start but five or six kilometres into the stage I had a small crash that dropped me back a few positions. Then I had to push until the end and 10km before the finish I got the lead back and was the first to cross the finish line. It felt really nice to win a stage that way. Overall, I’m satisfied with my third position in the overall. This was a tough race with tricky navigation and to be on the podium is always good. We continue to gather experience and look ahead in the races to come.”

      Andrew Short: “I really enjoyed this week in Morocco. Especially this last day was really fun, bringing back memories from my days racing motocross. Before the flag dropped the nerves were there and I was maybe a bit late off the start. It was a good experience racing alongside the fastest guys in the dunes and being able to see their pace. The adrenaline kicked in and I had some really good fun. Overall, the week has been great for me. I enjoy the atmosphere in rally racing and I feel I am improving, getting closer to the top guys. I might still have a long way to go but I understand it needs to be done step-by-step. This week was a positive step in the right direction.”

      Do these bikes have a speedometer and/or hour meter form the factory? 
    • By White_Buffalo7.3
      So, looking for a little wisdom. I just rebuilt my bike last night and finished at 12:30 this morning. Last night i wanted to make sure i could get the bike to fire up and make sure everything is okay and begin the break in.  As luck would have it, the HG is leaking coolant.  what would y'all recommend i do. I have a cosmetic gasket because i have a cylinder works 269cc.  
      P.S. it was running for 15 minuets with me modulating the throttle when i noticed it.  It was a VERY small little line but its still leaking coolant with less than 20 minutes in the the motor.
      Thanks
      -Brandon

      Hello all! First post on TT... be nice!
      I'm buying myself a new dirtbike - and I'm stoked. I haven't had a bike for 6 years, I'm now 22 with a fairly good job so it's time to treat my self. But I've been having a difficult time deciding on what kind of bike. I've got it down to a Yamaha - YZ250X, YZ250FX or maybe even a WR.... 
      I'll be doing strictly woods/trail riding. About a 50/50 mix of tight woods/open logging roads. I'm also currently teaching my girlfriend how to ride!  We picked her up a 2014 DRZ125L the other day, so the catch is I'll need to be able to putt slowly enough to stay nearby her... The last two bikes I've had in my riding days were a Suzuki RM250 and a Yamaha yz250f, and loved them both. I'm fairly neutral on 2 stoke vs 4 stroke (maybe someone will help me decide). 
      The other thing is, I don't NEED insane amounts of power. I can't afford to hurt myself... lol. That being said though, if I come across a gnarly hill - you know I'm going up that sucker. I loves hills lol.
      What do you guys think? YZ250X? YZ250FX? Or should I be looking at something else?
       
      Cheers.
