YZ250 Plastics


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:
Cost? Almost Free.
Time? 30 minutes.


A 2002-2010 YZ125/250 gas tank will fit with this modification:
Cost? $5-10.
Time? 1-2 hours.


The 2002-2010 side panels & rear fender will fit with this modification:
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.

      I searched and couldn't find a similar thread. Modding season is upon us.I cleaned and oiled my air filter, changed my 13 tooth cs to a 14, cleaned and lubed the chain, changed the oil and filter, and installed my Battery Tender. It was a good day. Tomorrow, I ride.

      Alright, so up behind my house I got a mountain full of trails to explore, but my dad won't let me go at it unless I have some sort of device that tracks my location and has the capability to send an emergency message in case I get hurt. 
      I was wondering if there were any good GPS tracking devices that would have those functions?
