YZ250F with electric start?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to buy a used dirt bike.  I've had dual sport bikes in the past, though I started on an old 2 stroke.  I got spoiled with the electric start cuz you don't crash in the easy parts. 

 

Anyhoo, I'm looking at getting a Yamaha YZ 250F.  I'm almost positive the new ones are fuel injected so they need a battery, so they have an electric starter. Which years have electric start and which ones don't?  It would be useful to know that to narrow down my internet searches.

 

Also, is it easy to convert to motard?  Just new tires and rims?  I know there were issues with certain models of DR-Z where you could put street tires on the dirt model, but couldn't put dirt tires on the street model.

 

Thanks for any info.  =)

 

 

Ride fast and take chances.

Yes the 14+ is fuel injected, no it does not run a battery it runs a capacitor. They do not have electric start.

The YZ250FX has electric start. It's closer to a stripped down non pollution 2015 wr250f then yz250f.
