yz250 vin decode and a few questions

ok so i bought what i was told a 2000 yz250 but dont know for sure if that is right the vin number is jya4jxw03ra011799 .. problem is the guy i bought it from was riding it and the piston blew a hole in it and the cylinder has what i belive to be some melted piston buildup on it i dont see no scrathes or grooves in it just build up. can this be honed out of have to be bored and replated or what? i am told this is alot different than my 78 dt175 im used to working on.

The vin I pulled up show's the bike as a 94 model.Can you post a picture.Need a pic of the cylinder also,chances are that if the piston blew it could possibly lead to splitting the cases.Did the bike lock up ?

gotta make a run to town now will try to post pics this evening when i get back

my local shop said it needs replating which i thought it did. so where is the best place to send it to? he said he could sent it to i think it was langcourt for 140-200 probly would be closer to 200 just depends on what they had to do. are they a good company and is that a good price? who are my other options yall recommend?

Told him the vin and he said it was a 94 also

going to take some pics now will post them here in little bit

      Hey guys, I just picked up a running 03 yz125 a few weeks ago and upon tearing down the top end, I noticed the cylinder head looks a little beat up. Is it possible to just clean it up or am I better off just buying a new one? Thanks guys.

      Hey guys I just bought a bike last night. So the seller said the bike will turn on but then die. We didn't try it because it was really late at night and it was raining (seat was wet). But he said if you bump start it, it will turn on and ride. So what do you think the problem is? I just want to make sure it runs... I probably won't be able to bump start it till Saturday (rain)... It's a four stroke, and I know absolutely nothing about them. Thanks.

      Hey guys, 
      I've used this forum as a "guest" for awhile now and I thought I'd share my build now that it's all coming together.  The primary purpose of this project is to help me train for roadracing my 2009 R1 at lower speeds as well as giving me a cheap alternative to racing the big bike. 
      Here's what she looked like when I picked it up from a local shop.  Paid $800 cash for the bike as you see it with 17' rims, FMF pipe, EBC 250mm front rotor and clip on handle bars.

      Fits PERFECT!

      Shake down run at the Herrin Compound last summer:

      As she sits today:

      i bought my yz125 from a dealer and they said that the clutch was broken so i bought it and it worked fine it would run move and everything and then it started to act up and now only first gear works barely though. when you put it in first it acts like its bogging down but its not and when you go into gears 2-5 it wont move i dont know whats wrong with it im assuming the clutch is slipping or something if you know please leave me a comment
