1993 WR250ZE Piston?

Recommended Posts

I have a 1993 WR250ZE that I need a piston for. All of the pistons on eBay and other stores cost $100 or more dollars. I am wondering what year pistons from wr's or yz's fit this model. I know 1992 is the same, but the pistons are just as expensive. Are there any better-priced pistons?

Once you figure out your size, decide on the brand.

DO NOT GET A NAMURA!

If $100 seems like a lot for that important of a part, you need to consider another hobby. Or start asking for overtime at work and selling your plasma.

Collecting hot wheels can be a good hobby under $100.00

I don't need to be made fun of, I am a 17 yo senior in high school with no job, I got this bike for $50, and I just need a piston and rings to finish it. I have spent that much at least in new parts. I found one on eBay, will this fit? 

What is wrong with Namura? They seem to have decent prices. I am thinking about Pro-X, is that good?

Doesn't matter about age, or status of school grade, grow a little thicker skin. That way when you crash, you'll have it for protection. If you can't take a joke, I get it! It's the age group. 

Namur is garbage, or could be great for 0-15 hours. But why not get a piston that can give you 5X the hours? 

5X garbage, is more than 1X quality.

ProX is one I linked you to. You will need to know the size and condition of the bore, to get the correct piston. I said that also!

Oh, and welcome to the smoking section. As in 2 strokes use oil in the fuel and smoke a little. So they got the nickname Smokers.

PC for the younger crowd. 

If you can handle it, I'll check back in, otherwise, have fun. 

Carry on.

Which is better for trail and woods riding, OEM or Wiseco? I think OEM is cast, Wiseco is forged correct? My dad has a few 2-smokes and my friend has a kx-250 so I works on 2-strokes mainly. I have pretty much rebuilt this bike, and I want to get it done so I can ride it, but I have almost hit the limit of my budget.

You are better off with a kit. (Piston, wrist pin, C-Clips)

I run Vertex, and ProX pretty exclusive. Vertex is KTM OEM, and ProX comes from the same factory as OEM.

I have built many of engines, and you need to understand condition and size matters.

Correct in composition, and you will never fall within budget on a dirt scoot.

Will a flywheel weight affect what piston I should choose? I need help with these last few, vital parts to get this bike back romping those lonely trails.😂👌

Got some money today, I think I will go with the Pro-X kit you listed above, what about the Tusk gasket kit I listed above, will that work well?
I need a size "D" piston, but I heard size does not matter with Wiseco and Pro-X or is that a rumor?
Unfortunately, size always matters, no matter what they tell you.

you need to measure the bore and figure out what size piston you need to bring the clearance into spec. why would a flywheel weight affect what piston you need?

How do you know it's a D? Have you had the jug off and measured the bore to know the D size will be the one you need? What is the condition of the walls?, are there any signs of wear?

Is that what she told you? Maybe the little ones are better.

I've been telling him since post 3. And I'm still scratching my head.

One at a time please😂😂 I did measure the bore, at Moto1. Also, this is a YAMAHA, a YAMAHA, calm down. There is a stamp on the outside of the cylinder, you know the stamp that tell you what size piston to get? A, B, C, D? Mine is a D, I was just wondering if a flywheel weight would hurt a cast or forged piston, calm down.

      Ok so I'm looking for opinions from those who have been on yz125s and 150 exc/xcw's and maybe the ktm 200's exc/xcw's. You gotta be out there.
      Here's the deal...I'm 5'7" 165lbs. A couple years back I was looking for a small bike for my wife to learn on and for me to play around with and race. Could only afford one bike. I got a '09 ktm 105 sx. Once I got it sprung for my weight it was great. I have been top five consistently in my local harescrambles B class, believe it or not. Ya, you were not the only ones shocked. And did pretty good in the local mx races as well, junior class up here in Canada. Lack of power was sometimes an issue but I learned to deal with it and just scream, scream, scream!
      However my wife is a complete beginner and she is scared of it. I have since moved her to a 4 stroke.
      Just got a mint '01 yz15 mid summer. Like less than 200 hrs! I have absolutely loved it on the mx track. Suspension is perfect and I love the extra power. I had planned to set it up for woods/mx with a suspension revalve. However, did a harescramble race a month ago that was really technical. Granted I have not done anything to the suspension minus clickers, had too much psi in the tires (13 front and 15 rear) (yes I know that's wonkey, I only had time to get a heavy duty tube in the front and had a stock tube in back. Less psi in the back would have been instant pinch flat because its so rocky) and it was running rich. I had to scream the thing to keep it running and even changed a plug mid race. Well I'm sure you can guess but it was the worst experience I have ever had on a motorcycle. The more open sections I passed a lot of people but the tech sections required way more effort than I liked and the suspension beat the hell out of me!!! Like my knees, wrists, and shoulders were just done. (I was out there for three hours).
      So keep in mind that I just came off a 105sx with suspension mods (set up for woods/mx). I have no problem slipping clutch and shifting precisely, yatta yatta. (I don't think the 105 would have done well here either due to even less power, however...) I've been second guessing fixing this 125 up for woods ever since I rode a friends '09 ktm 250xcw. I rode it on a local mx track. The power was just so effortless and I was absolutely floored by how the suspension worked. I never thought that I could hit the woops that hard and clear every jump on the track on an xcw and feel THAT good! It felt a lot heavier though, and I think the price tag on these things are going to be a stretch.
      So here's my question. I want the lightness of a 125, but want to be able to race both woods and mx. How does a 150 exc/xcw ENGINE compare to an mx 125 engine? I love the 125 engine, but more low end would be usefull in tech areas. But if there is not a huge difference, I will probably just revalve the yz for woods and go tubless, etc. The 150exc's are so expensive and I hardly ever even see one for sale unless its brand new. I don't want the weight of a 200/250/300. I barely touch the ground on a 125....so it has to at least be light. Is it worth waiting for a 150 engine? Thanks guys.

      Hi guys I have a 2018 yz250 looking at changing springs front and rear I'm 200 pound ride b class moto.
      Having problems choosing spring weights using the calculators as mx tech say I need .45 fork springs and 5.2 rear but racetech say .48kg forks and 5.8kg rear.
      What are other bigger guys

      Hey TT, I know there's endless topics on YZ250/ two stroke tuning in general but I have not been able to find one that helps me get my 09 YZ250 set up for my riding style and where I ride so I'm here asking for help. I got this bike around 1.5 years ago and have not known how to set it up properly. I know no one can give me a perfect set up but I'd like a good starting setup to work from and tweak to perfection. Throughout this time I've had this bike, its always been covering the bottom of the entire silencer and dripping all over the swing arm and rims with oil. Also, the joint between silencer and expansion pipe has oil around it too but I've heard I have to close the gap a little to squeeze the silencer a little tighter and stop the leakage there. I don't have too much experience messing with carbs but I've messed around with previous two strokes and tuned them a little better. I change the oil on my bike after 15-20 hours on it and clean and oil the air filter after almost every ride. The sparkplugs never last me more than a few months but recently have been lasting me no more than a few weeks. With the excess oil from the pipe and spark plug fouling you can see why I need to set my bike up to stop this. 
      The bike:
      Completely stock with V-Force 3 Reeds and a FMF Shorty silencer. 
      Usually running around 32:1 premix with 91 pump fuel because I prefer to keep it well lubricated instead of running rich.
      Riding:
      I ride enduro in Ontario, Canada. So mostly single track and some fire roads but nothing close to MX and not a lot of time wide open. Therefore, probably mostly 1/4-1/2 or 1/4-3/4 throttle range.
      Where I ride:
      Usually 0-500' above sea level. With temperatures ranging from around 15-35 degrees Celsius (55-95 Fahrenheit).
       
      If anyone can give me a setup to go from, that would be very much appreciated. Even multiple set ups for different temperature ranges or any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks and sorry for the long read, I just didn't want to leave anything out. Ask any questions if you have any, too.

      Hey guys... so I have a problem... I took the bike at Cal City, broke it in, and while I was doing so, the bike was bogging in first gear (Yes, first gear). Also it doesn't idle at all. I have to keep blipping it otherwise it'll stall. So I adjusted the screw circled in image 1. Well I was listening to the sound of the of the bike, yet the rpm's weren't increasing, and it was still stalling. So then, I unscrewed the screw in image 2, well I found out that it was fully twisted to the right. So then, I twisted it to the left, still nothing; it was still stalling... where's the idle screw? I am sure that the screw in image 1 is for the air/fuel mixture screw, and the screw in image 2 is the idle screw, just broken? I don't know, any and every help would be appreciated.
