06 YZ250 Valve Failure

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, been looking around and have a question.  I bought a 2006 YZ250F about 7 months back.  Was riding it around the whole time til this weekend when the bike shut off on me.  Took  the top end apart to see that the intake valve snapped and then the piston destroyed it smashing it into the head.  The cylinder still looks good but the head is destroyed.  I know Yamaha did a recall on the valves just wondering if there is any possible way to get them to still possible cover it.

Check the VIN on the steering head. If a dealer did the valve update, there will be a punch mark on the VIN somewhere, that's how they marked them. If you got the bike used, most likely the valves have been replaced at least once. Good luck with that.
