2002-2004 yz 250

I wanna pick up a 2002-2004 yz 250 when I find the right price.I wanna do a white and red retro, and also I'm ready for the extra power.Are those year bike's basically the same or should I look at a particular year?

2002-2004 look same, but 2004 be first year 48mm fork. 2002-2003 still be good though.

2004 also has different size crank and integrated master cylinder with rear brake reservoir. 2004 had a gripper seat cover too. :blah:

^^^Good detail's I was not aware of.

Red and white looks good on the 99-01 also.

Get ya one.... :D

wow that white and red looks good.

02-04 are identical years, aluminum frame was introduced in 05, and the amazing suspension was released in 06.

02-04 are identical years.

Not identical:

2002 has less compression that 2003,2004; 2004 has 48mm forks where the 2002-2003 have 46mm forks; 2003 has a stiffer frame than 2002, 2004 has a stiffer frame than 2003; 2003-2004 have integrated rear master cylinders where the 2002 has the old remote reservoir. theres more, but im bored now...

So all the pointless stuff nobody really cares about.

But they're still not identical. DRZ400Senior was correct.

I picked up a 2004 YZ250 a couple years ago and just love the bike. Also picke up a 2004 YZ125 for my son.

But they're still not identical. DRZ400Senior was correct.

I was just joking around. No need to start a war.

THANK YOU !!

your welcome,i nearly bought some yellow/black ones for my 03.it's a shame they don't list the "squares" graphics in a wider range of colours as i think they are cool too..

just fyi i've heard a few people have had issues with this company folding/creasing ( :naughty: ) the graphics when they ship them to the customer so make sure you speak to them about it should you order any :thumbsup:
