Just bought 05 YZ250

I've been looking for a good Yamaha for a few weeks now and I was very close to purchasing an 04 YZ450 for about $4k but the guy wouldnt go down on price at all. So I came across an 05 YZ250 that I got from a dealer for $4k OTD. I'm very happy with the deal, they even gave me a heafty discount on some new gear. The only downside with the bike is it has some crappy decals on the plastics so I will be replacing those.

My question is... Where can I find some kick-ass decals for my new plastics and wheres a good place online to find parts for my 250? Are there any particular upgrades that I should go for first? The entire bike is pretty much stock right now. Also, I need to find a service manual for this thing, anyone know where I can come across one?

I'm totally pumped about this bike and can't wait to take it on the track. :thumbsup:

Congrats on the new bike. And for the main website I go to is www.motosport.com

www.btosports.com i just order graphics from there they have a wide selection

I normally recommend folks buy from TT. Their a good store and are very easy to deal with.

I just picked up a full set of Team Yamaha decals made by One Industries. Cyclegear.com just opened a store in my area. I liked the set and it was marked 189.99. I decided to get them.

They rang it up and the kit came to 89.99. It was on some sort of close out sale. It included everything. Even the seat cover.

N Style makes sweet graphics, $130 for the graphics and cover.

      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:

      i bought my yz125 from a dealer and they said that the clutch was broken so i bought it and it worked fine it would run move and everything and then it started to act up and now only first gear works barely though. when you put it in first it acts like its bogging down but its not and when you go into gears 2-5 it wont move i dont know whats wrong with it im assuming the clutch is slipping or something if you know please leave me a comment

      Hey guys, I have a 2003 cr125 I bought a couple weeks ago and I'm having a problem with it. The spark plugs die every about 15 minutes, with hotter plugs it will last about 45 minutes. I herd that if the timing is off it can over heat the plugs and burn out the the resistor. Is there any truth to that? The reason I thinks it's not fouling is because when the plug dies it gives no spark no matter how much you clean it, And it shorts out.
