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:

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.

      I will be going on a trip around US and will be towing my WR my the front wheel like in the pic below. I don't want to be eating up the knobby tires on the long freeway stretches. Is there any rear rim that can fit properly on the WR, that isn't a WR rear wheel as they are kind of pricey, so that I can switch it out for when I'm towing it? I don't need it to be able to fit the break or sprocket, just need it to be able to roll properly. 
      Edit: Since this is turning into "how to tow a motorcycle" thread, I've looked at all my other options. Buying a car that can handle that, trailers, bike carrier on a hitch, etc. I've towed my bike like this plenty of times without a single issue, and have spoken with other owners that have done the same. With the chain and rear break disconnected there is no way the bike engine will be hurt by towing the bike this way. I don't have anywhere that I can store a trailer when not in use, I'm not going to buy another car just so 1% of the time that I use it for towing i can tow properly with it, and the hitch carrier wont work for my vehicle as they don't make hitches strong enough for it to handle the full weight of the motorcycle. Simply want to know how to figure out how to figure out what wheel and spacer would work on the rear to have the wheel spin freely when not connected to to chain or break.

      My top end went on m 98 cr 125, the needle bearing clip came out and broke apart and shrapnel got everywhere and blew it up. I cleaned out the top end and washed out the crank with the bike upside down. the bike starts up great and seems to run fine but im getting a weird di-di-di-di-di-di-di noise coming from the motor. i tried adjust the power valve and tightening everything but the noise is still there. Here is a link to a video where you can hear the sound. It gets louder as rpm's get higher and at really low rpm barely idling it goes away. I am pretty new to bikes and 2 strokes so any help would be appreciated.
