2002-2004 yz 250

Recommended Posts

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?

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'm pretty sure they are the "retro" graphics from graphicmx.click on the retro graphics and view a colours slideshow.they also sell complete kit's.$69.95 for the shroud graphics or $119.95 for the full kit.matching backgrounds available too.

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:
