WR250s (two stroke)

1993 WR250z

OK guys I bought a 93 wr250z. Thought it was a yz250 but that's another story so OK basic seems wr'ss are rare I never see many for sale getting the crank fixed right now (has long crank) I am wondering if I should keep this bike or kick myself for getting rid of it are these rare how many import?

they are enduro/cross country race bikes. i.e. ported for mid/low end power, wide ratio transmission, AC stator for lights, softer suspension.


some people like them. they are not that well suited for aggressive motor cross riding, but still do good there. they are in the same class as rmx250/kdx250 and more modern ktm exc/xcw. if you are interested in trail/cross country, it's a keeper !


where are you located at ? I might be interested if you want to get rid of it, even as is. I have a rmx250 and race it in hare scramble and enduro against more modern bikes. not sure abut '93, but the later year wr250z might have had more power than a rmx/kdx

Thanks for the post I am into trail riding so when I get it together I will ride it and see if it suits me then sell it if not I am interested in putting a light on it??

The 94-97 wr250s use the 1994 yz engine which is legendary for its power. My 97 destroys kdx200's and even more modern 250s.

I like it any clue how many were made wr250 can't find many for sale

They didn't make enough 2-stroke wr's. Luckily, I found a very low hour 98 wr250z and have been souring it up ever since. Race teck suspension, fmf sparkarestor and pipe, tubeless rim locker with dunlop desert at ( super hard side wall and rubber compound so I run zero air pressure so no flats and awesome traction), hydraulic clutch with rekluse and rekluse left hand rear brake leaver... I so loved it tImageUploadedByThumper Talk1395527958.017307.jpghe wife should be jealous.

Love it looks great I would love to find some old wr250 stickers for mine so unique and cool bike as a yz lover I appreciate the daddy wrs

How do you post pics on here? Lol I know bikrs but having issues here

I'm doing it from my iPhone and the thumper app has options to take a pic or use pics you've got and tweet...

I took off the side plates and I have the original tank shrouds for it that say wr. If I sell it one day, I'll show it that way.

      Hey guys, 
      I've used this forum as a "guest" for awhile now and I thought I'd share my build now that it's all coming together.  The primary purpose of this project is to help me train for roadracing my 2009 R1 at lower speeds as well as giving me a cheap alternative to racing the big bike. 
      Here's what she looked like when I picked it up from a local shop.  Paid $800 cash for the bike as you see it with 17' rims, FMF pipe, EBC 250mm front rotor and clip on handle bars.

      Fits PERFECT!

      Shake down run at the Herrin Compound last summer:

      As she sits today:

      i bought my yz125 from a dealer and they said that the clutch was broken so i bought it and it worked fine it would run move and everything and then it started to act up and now only first gear works barely though. when you put it in first it acts like its bogging down but its not and when you go into gears 2-5 it wont move i dont know whats wrong with it im assuming the clutch is slipping or something if you know please leave me a comment

      Hey guys, I have a 2003 cr125 I bought a couple weeks ago and I'm having a problem with it. The spark plugs die every about 15 minutes, with hotter plugs it will last about 45 minutes. I herd that if the timing is off it can over heat the plugs and burn out the the resistor. Is there any truth to that? The reason I thinks it's not fouling is because when the plug dies it gives no spark no matter how much you clean it, And it shorts out.

      Hi all, First post here. I need some help.
      Ive just bought an 05 yz 125 for a good price but it needs some work. One of the forks has some pretty severe pitting of the chrome on the stanchion towards the bottom near the brake caliper mount.
      Ive found a pair of good condition forks from an 04 yz250 for a very good price, from the research ive done its seems that both the 04 & 05 forks are 48mm but are different, with the 05 fork regarded as being better than the 04, but not as good as the 06 + sss forks.
      Im looking for the cheapest way to get me riding, Will I be able to make the 04 forks work with my 05 triple clamps, brakes, wheel, axle, spacers etc? If not does anyone know what hardware id need to make it work?
      Finally, as a last resort, does anyone know if i could swap the stanchion from the 04 fork into my 05 forks?
      Thanks, Andrew

      I bought a 2006 YZ250, have ridden it 5 times.  It needs some tuning, but I am not sure I'm keeping it so don't want to spend much on it.
      Has fmf gnarly expansion chamber and turbine core silencer.
      I ride about 1000 feet above sea level.
      I'm going to clean the carb and check the jetting.  What is a good jetting for me?  85 main jet?
      Also check the reeds.  Is there a big difference between getting aftermarket reed cage and reeds or just getting a cheap aftermarket set of reeds that fit the stock cage ie.  Boyesen Power Reeds?
      The other things I'm going to do is permatex all the joints in the exhaust system and a compression test.   It was 220psi 5 rides ago so I'm guessing itll be fine.  Its bogging a bit but I'm thinking its carb and definitely exhaust joint related.  
      Let me know if I'm overlooking anything that could make the bike run crisper and more bottom end without throwing much money on parts
