Reasonably priced Early 90s cylinder

Hi Everyone,


I'm trying to source a reasonably priced YZ250 cylinder, power valve and top cap/dome/head. The problem is i'm in New Zealand. I can't seem to find one here and all the ones on E-bay are mega money and they expect a heap to freight it here. I'm not too worried about condition and through the company I work through I could probably get the bits sent in a container we already have coming.


Any way the bike i'm fitting it to is a 1992 YZ250. I have a complete bottom end and rolling frame all i need now is the bits mentioned above, an expansion chamber and a rear guard. Then I can start a full restore.


I have already rebuilt one I ride but now I want to rebuild one to factory if I can.


Any way if anyone has a barrel and bits lying around I would love to do a deal!





Hopefully someone can help you out. I need a mate for my 92.

I have been speaking to a company called Q and E inc in california. They have two suitable cylinders. So looks like I might do a deal and get one shipped to a company I'm dealing with over there as I have a shipping container coming to NZ in a couple of months.

      Hey guys, I just picked up a running 03 yz125 a few weeks ago and upon tearing down the top end, I noticed the cylinder head looks a little beat up. Is it possible to just clean it up or am I better off just buying a new one? Thanks guys.

      Hey guys I just bought a bike last night. So the seller said the bike will turn on but then die. We didn't try it because it was really late at night and it was raining (seat was wet). But he said if you bump start it, it will turn on and ride. So what do you think the problem is? I just want to make sure it runs... I probably won't be able to bump start it till Saturday (rain)... It's a four stroke, and I know absolutely nothing about them. Thanks.

      Hey guys, 
      I've used this forum as a "guest" for awhile now and I thought I'd share my build now that it's all coming together.  The primary purpose of this project is to help me train for roadracing my 2009 R1 at lower speeds as well as giving me a cheap alternative to racing the big bike. 
      Here's what she looked like when I picked it up from a local shop.  Paid $800 cash for the bike as you see it with 17' rims, FMF pipe, EBC 250mm front rotor and clip on handle bars.

      Fits PERFECT!

      Shake down run at the Herrin Compound last summer:

      As she sits today:
