2014 YZ250 bars (factory bend)

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the bend of the factory bars? A crash took ours out this weekend. Need some new ones. Son likes the factory bend. I don't like the factory price. Retail on those babys are @ $160! That's before any discount.

Thanks!

FYI, the Evo is well worth the premium price over the contour bar IMHO. My only gripe is that Protaper don't make the ultra-low bend (called Universal low) in the Evo style which is the bend I like to run with bar risers and sub-mounted Scotts stabilizer.

Yo Swappa!!  Where do you think I got that info from in the first place?  :p

Yamaha handlebar labels can be funky so I thought I would check it out myself. I like that PTaper list OEM specs and thought I would throw it up there too. Just verifying your info and posting a link that's a little closer to the source.

 

I know the 2007-? pro tapes are labelled as 5XC-LO (ie low-bend) bar but they're actually a mid- to high bend. I wanted to match bars with my sub-mounted damper and a buddy tried to tell me that these stock bars would work but they were too high.

I have a submounted Scotts damper on my WR450 and face the same issue with the stock bars being just a bit too high for riding in the woods.

The ones that came off my 13 don't have any pro taper markings on them. They are too low for my taste so I swapped them with Renthal RC high bars.

If you're interested in the stock bars let me know and I'll make you a good deal on them. They were taken off the bike before it even got ridden.

Oddly I just purchased a pair of WR450f stock bars (Protaper YZ High) off Ebay for $45, for my 2004 YZ250. I compared them to my WR's YZ High bend EVO bars, and they are identical. Pro taper's site like stated above shows all the new bikes OEM bends. Also $160 for stock bars is outrageous, especially when you can by ones with "ProTaper EVO" on them for $69-79 off ebay. OEM cycle has them on eBay for $79 shipped. black or magnesium. As well search Ebay for WR450 stock handlebars and  many well priced pro taper bars show up from $39-$69. hope this helps

This is an old thread but I talked to Pro Taper.  If anyone else has the same question the about the Yamaha 5-XC-LO I got the specs.  The Pro Taper SX race is the closest with slightly less sweep. By slightly I mean 2mm.

I would love the specs for those bars if you still have them!

      Hey TT, I know there's endless topics on YZ250/ two stroke tuning in general but I have not been able to find one that helps me get my 09 YZ250 set up for my riding style and where I ride so I'm here asking for help. I got this bike around 1.5 years ago and have not known how to set it up properly. I know no one can give me a perfect set up but I'd like a good starting setup to work from and tweak to perfection. Throughout this time I've had this bike, its always been covering the bottom of the entire silencer and dripping all over the swing arm and rims with oil. Also, the joint between silencer and expansion pipe has oil around it too but I've heard I have to close the gap a little to squeeze the silencer a little tighter and stop the leakage there. I don't have too much experience messing with carbs but I've messed around with previous two strokes and tuned them a little better. I change the oil on my bike after 15-20 hours on it and clean and oil the air filter after almost every ride. The sparkplugs never last me more than a few months but recently have been lasting me no more than a few weeks. With the excess oil from the pipe and spark plug fouling you can see why I need to set my bike up to stop this. 
      The bike:
      Completely stock with V-Force 3 Reeds and a FMF Shorty silencer. 
      Usually running around 32:1 premix with 91 pump fuel because I prefer to keep it well lubricated instead of running rich.
      Riding:
      I ride enduro in Ontario, Canada. So mostly single track and some fire roads but nothing close to MX and not a lot of time wide open. Therefore, probably mostly 1/4-1/2 or 1/4-3/4 throttle range.
      Where I ride:
      Usually 0-500' above sea level. With temperatures ranging from around 15-35 degrees Celsius (55-95 Fahrenheit).
       
      If anyone can give me a setup to go from, that would be very much appreciated. Even multiple set ups for different temperature ranges or any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks and sorry for the long read, I just didn't want to leave anything out. Ask any questions if you have any, too.

      Hey guys... so I have a problem... I took the bike at Cal City, broke it in, and while I was doing so, the bike was bogging in first gear (Yes, first gear). Also it doesn't idle at all. I have to keep blipping it otherwise it'll stall. So I adjusted the screw circled in image 1. Well I was listening to the sound of the of the bike, yet the rpm's weren't increasing, and it was still stalling. So then, I unscrewed the screw in image 2, well I found out that it was fully twisted to the right. So then, I twisted it to the left, still nothing; it was still stalling... where's the idle screw? I am sure that the screw in image 1 is for the air/fuel mixture screw, and the screw in image 2 is the idle screw, just broken? I don't know, any and every help would be appreciated.

      I’ve got this 85 yz 250 with a odd rev problem, it starts and runs fine, good compression but when you Give it wide open throttle in newtral the bike will rev to around 5.5 k rpm like platow for a bit there, once you’ve waited  a few seconds there for it to clear itself out until it reaches its max rev whatever it might be 7k rpm even happeneds when the bike is defenetly warmed up after a wide open pull. But it doesn’t bog at idle to 3k. The trotte response when riding seens normal. However i don’t feel that the motor is getting its full potential. Honestly I’m just confused on what’s goin on and i need some help
