Slow but steady re-birth of my 05 250

Recommended Posts

so it started out like most any normal yz two fiddy , it changed owners a few times and ended up in the hands of a southern california ''bro'' from witch i purchased it for 1300 looking like hell. i pressure washed the living hell out of it and pulled most of the gay graphics off of it so i could ride it for half a season before it shattered a piston, so this is the tale of it going back together the way its 22yo master sees fit. 

so step one tear down and crack open motor to get a parts list rolling

this and I'm missing the set screw thing for hight adjustment

So what exactly did you use to port the cylinder ? I'm debating on toying with mine a bit

most of all the heavy material removing is done with long 1/4 carbide burrs non-ferrous of course and cleanup is done with cartridge rolls and emeory cloth all my micro 1/8 90* stuff is out on warranty right now

Gotta' give credit, looks awesome , I love it when guys restore clapped out bikes to as new condition. Prooves the point you don't need a 2013+  year bike to be competitive and have fun.
