HAS ANYONE GOT TO SEE ONE OF THESE OR RIDE IT YET, HOW IS IT.

 

Why ya yelling  :lol: .

 

They aren't really anything new, people have been building their own for Yrs. Think hard edged XC race bike. They aren't Intended as a trail bike

Man I ordered a regular Yz 250 in June I keep getting the run around till last month they told me some time in August.

 None in US yet.  I get weekly updates from my dealer who I ordered it through.

And I will be using this as a trail bike among other things, should be just fine for that type of use.  I am adding a heavier fly wheel to it before I take delivery.  Should be good in the twisties!  Excited to lose 50lbs from my WR450F, that I still adore.

That's fine, just saying, that Isn't what they're Intended for  ;) . I prefer an MX style bike in the woods myself  :thumbsup: .

 

They come with a flywheel weight.

You think the 250X has a heavier Fly Wheel Weight?  Most articles say not.  But let me know if you see otherwise, as I may change my mods in that case.  I think its the same Fly Wheel from the regular 250.

"While this new machine doesn’t feature handguards, a bigger tank, a heavier flywheel, or direct-injection, it is a strong and positive sign that the Japanese manufacturers are now investing more in the future of off-road-specific two-strokes."

Hoping for direct injection soon as well.  I'll be the first in line for one.  And e-start!!

A mate that's buying one told me they had a heavier flywheel weight. Guess he was wrong. Sorry about that   ;) .

They're here! Got a call from the dealer. I'll be picking mine up tomorrow AM.

Whaaaaaaaaaaat?????? Thats awesome. I will be bothering my dealer daily now!! I assume you being on the coast helps out with delivery time as well. Take pics and let us know your thoughts. Congrats!

Let us know what your adding to it too !!

I picked mine up today serial #31 of the number built.

Awesome , need a ride report asap and a video .

Ja and GYTR to figure out the e-start before the 4th of December! :-)

The mods list is as follows:

Springs for my weight and ability

Enduro Engineering skid plate

Gytr hand guards

IMS clear over sized tank

No toil air filter

Jd jetting kit

FMF Gnarly pipe

Gytr/FMF turbine core muffler

Ok, stupid question on mods.  I am doing very similar improvements to mine.  When looking at fuel tanks and jetting kits etc, are 2015 YZ250 spec items what I am looking for if '16 250X parts are not specified?  I assume they will work but want to check what you looked for.

I'd be interested as to what they are like before all the mods. Yes, I know that statistically speaking, it's probably jetted too rich off the bottom. But with my engineering/analytical mind, I always want to start with a base level and go from there. Throwing on parts before you even ride it doesn't make sense to me. Everyone is assuming it's a YZ250 with a WR gearbox, but is it?

My dealer claims the parts like skid plate, pipes, clutch, seat, plastics, tank are all yz250 which has not changed for a long time. My suspension is being re sprung do to my weight and ability. The bike will be ridden for break in stock then modded.

I'm going to be running eline skidplate, fmf q stealth sparky (stock pipe), scotts over the bar dampner, and some bark busters. I'll also be replacing the springs with racetech's for myself.

And my external 180w stator from Hodgkins. It will be powering hid helmet and race light I already have.
