Hello fella's, Considering buying my first yz 250. I'm looking at a 1996 yz for $800 (AUD). The owner is selling it because he has upgraded and he broke it... He said he was full throttling it when it "seized" then he pulled in the clutch, popped it back out and it ran enough for him to get home. Since then he said it has had no compression and he believes it just needs new rings. Also, it has had to be welded just under the kick starter, is this a normal place to crack? Lastly, the kick starter doesn't spring back when kicked. Other then that it seems like a decent bike. Would love any opinions from you intelligent folk! Thanks guys!
