02,wr250f for my boy?

Recommended Posts

My son is 14 yrs. old 6 feet tall and weighs 160.He has outgrown his ttr-125L and is constantly riding my xr2.5. Anyway i looked at an 02 wr250F today and it seemed to be in good shape. It has a skid plate renthal bars bark busters, pro circut pipe, rejeted aftermarket headlite,ect.ect.ect.

He is asking 4 bills,i've owned several yamahas over the years but never a water cooled bike.

Is there anything special i should be checking or looking for.

Please advise me .

THANX. 😢

4 grand is a little steep. I think $3300 is closer to what an 02 should go for.

These bikes can be a jetting nightmare and difficult to start, hot or cold,flooded or not.

Once the bike is dialed in they are fine, but its a shame to spend $6 grand on a new bike and have to work so hard on the jetting and accelorator pump timing and duration Etc. JMHOPINION

$4000 is way too much even if its cherry...., closer to $2500 for an 02'is more reasonable depending on where you live. Now is the time to buy, lots of guys are willing to let thier old bike go cheap. I watched an 04' 250f sold get sold last week for $3600.00 and it was in great condition.
