Yamaha 2004 YZ250F REBUILD top end and valve train HELP AND QUESTIONS

Recommended Posts

So the other day I pulled the old 2004 YZ250F out after moving to Colorado from Hawaii so...

 

the 1st problem started with ALTITUDE over a 6000 ft difference. I knew i needed jets so i went to the local shop here and they hooked me up.

 

the 2nd problem after i got it all together, and rode around seemed flat at the top end and i started to get cherry pipes. 

 

 

so my dad said valves, you should check to see if its getting enough air. 

so i pulled it apart myself and start getting my gaps for re-shimming it.

 

the 3rd problem comes along all the valves need adjustment. 

 

left exhaust was 0.15mm 

right exhaust was 0.15mm

 

left intake was 0.00mm        (could not get a 0.04mm is smallest feeler gauge i have)

center intake was 0.00mm

right intake was 0.09

 

specifications for the maintenance manual

exhaust is 0.17mm to 0.22mm

intake spec is 0.10mm to 0.15mm 

 

 

so i pull the center intake shim to see what size i need to put in and its 120mm, the smallest shim

 

so im guessing i need new valves??? 

 

THIS IS WHERE I NEED YOUR HELP!!!!!!!

 

????????do i need to get all new valve assembly ( valve, seals, seats, springs, and retainers?)

or just some parts 

 

???????what kind of head work does this need before i install new valves??? (valve seat cutting) 

what shop is good?

 

????????steel vs titanium?

 

??????? will any valve work for a yz250f or do i need to get a measurement?

 

since I am going to rebuild the valve train, im going to toss a new ring and piston in also. 

 

?????? brands should i use for ring and piston ?

 

should i send my cylinder off also?

 

 

thanks for the help in advance
