could be a combination of things but I bet the leading cause is maintenance, or lack of.

do you think the lack of basic maintenance ( oil/filter) cause this or more advance like checking the valve clearance or .. !? because as a beginner i got worried that i may run to the same problems , i usually change oil and filters but nothing inside the engine :/ .

I, an nobody else, can answer that question. even the maintenance thing is speculation. after enough hours your going to have to adjust valve clearances and replace parts.

yes i know that i should start and learn to them on weekends :D , 

Most common reason for a 4 strokes to grenade is low oil and continuing to re-shimming the valves after they begin to move(wear). Once you have shimmed more than a couple thousandths the potential for them to break increases exponentially.

I'd say the ones on the video were from poor maintenance and/or too many hours on the motor. The KTM 2 stroke was the lack of a functioning kill switch and something not right in the throttle/ throttle linkage. Pretty much all catastrophic engine failures boil down to user error of some sort..

Yes agree any type of dirtbike need to be maintained correctly. ... what i underestand is that 250 4t need to be checked more regularly than 450s .

This being because a 250F is normally ridden harder than a 450. The machine itself is the same, it's the manner in which it is used.

Agreed! My crf250r was shimmed to death by previous owner. I got it rode 3 x and almost boom!  I revalved with the best parts (now with proper airbox cleaning and oil changes I should be good forever! 😨)(brought just the head to Honda to save money) and did everything myself (piston, rings etc) it was my 1st time doing it, but thanks to YouTube and Thumper Talk I got it done and saved mucho money. Now that I know how to do it, im going to rebuild the top end on all 4 of my bikes! Good luck and have fun👍

God bless youtube and thumpertalk ... people here are really helpful.

Hour meter is the best solution then follow a proper matienence schedule after the install.

That KTM one was hard to watch! Pull the plug wire already!!!!!!!!:facepalm:

The guy didn't know what to do and the bike blew itself up, which could have been prevented if he pulled the plug wire.

      Got a break in the weather over the weekend, and was finally able to get out on a track for the first time since October.  I know I suck compared to a lot of guys (and kids for that matter), but I always have a blast twisting a grip and roosting some dirt!  Here's a raw uncut lap around the MX track at IMI Motorsports Complex in Dacono, CO.  Was a fun day despite some wind.  Also, there was a drift car club having a meet on the road course.  So, got to check out some drift car action while we were taking a break.
