2001 yz250f ?

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I recently spotted a 2001 yz250f on craigslist. The add says the bike is in good condition; (frame, forks, ect..) but smokes and is hard to start however, it still has it's normal power. Any suggestions on what the problem could be? Sounds ok for 800 obo.

Any feedback is greatly appriciated.

Smoke (usually blue) means its burning oil due to worn rings or blown gaskets. Thats bikes going to be in for a rebuild soon. I personally would stay away from it its not worth the hassel. And im no four stroke expert but being hard to start most likley leads to the valves needing to be shimmed.

Okay, Thanks for the input guys. I kinda figured the smoke was due to a worn ring. I'll keep looking.
