2001 YZ250F - Problems?

Recommended Posts

I am considering picking up a 2001 YZ250F I found for sale. I currently have a KTM520EXC that I converted to motard and want something lighter for offroad riding.

Is there anything to be aware of on the 2001 model year?

Thanks.

One major problem with the yzf....they never wear out with proper maintenance so it gets really hard to justify to the wife that you need another when the bike is running perfect! I know the guy I sold my '01 to and it still runs and starts perfect.

Now that I think of it the other thing you'll want to watch is the front wheel bearings. For some darn reason these 250f's are notorious for eating them, but before you go buy yamaha ones look into the sealed MSR ones. The whole kit (bearings and seals) is like $24 and they are excellent quality.
