Lets see your YZ250 rebuild.

Recommended Posts

I know this thread has been done before but I just finished mine so I figured why not.  Here's everything I've done too it since the piston melted and shattered:

 

New piston.

New cylinder.

New bearings and seals throughout crankcase.

Didn't replace the crankshaft itself, there was no play and I'm on a budget lol.

Added a Steahly 11oz flywheel weight.

Had the fork tubes rebuilt, both were leaking.

Dunlop D952 rear.

Dunlop Geomax MX51 front.

Pro Taper KX high bend bars, Tusk 30mm risers.

Fastway pegs, in the low boy position (I'm 6'4" I need the leg room).

New Renthal Chain and Sprocket kit,  14t front and 52t rear.

Cleaned the carb.

Cleaned and re-packed the spark arrestor.

New air filter.

New brake pads.

All the engine parts except the flywheel weight were OEM.

 

Painted the frame with Rustoleum bed liner, did'nt really turn out that well but who cares its cosmetics.

Rustoleum engine enamel on the crankcase covers and cylinder head seem ok,  I used it on the rims too but I'm pretty sure its chipping off after a couple of rides.

Rear spring I painted with that Rustoleum flexi-dip crap.  Wasn't really happy with any of the paint, thought I could save some money somewhere but I learned next time get it powder-coated.

 

The only thing I really do is trail ride.  Ive been on tracks but not trying to kill myself, I have to get to work on Monday's lol.  Oscoda Michigan is where its at.

Great looking bike! Here's a 96 that I built from the ground up a while back.

This is my 87 YZ 250 that I took down to the frame and built back up. I tried to use as much OEM parts that I could find this bike is a beast!

My ultimate woods ripper - 2003 YZ 250 with EG 295 kit, 07 SSS forks conversion, 2012 fender and too much other stuff to list.

Pretty much what I would consider a 'best of the YZ' compilation!

That's how mine will end up! But I'm hoping for white, red, black color combo.

Got the '03 last week. No good pictures yet, but it's still at the starting point anyway. Motor is solid, clutch and transmission feels good, Hot Rods crank year before last, Wiseco piston last year, and very few hours on the bike since (got it from a riding buddy, so know it's history :thumbsup: ). 13oz FWW, Gnarly, VForce reed block, Factory Connection suspension valved and sprung for a 180lb rider, few other odds and ends. Needs plastics, fork seals, chain/sprockets, and such, then it's off to the woods, Been looking for a YZ250 for almost 3 years now with no success, so snagged this one quick. $1500 well spent IMO.
