goodies for a YZ250f

Recommended Posts

Here is the plan.

I have projects of buying an old stock YZ250f (03-05) if I can find one somewhere and here is what I plan to add to it.

The goal is to chase friends on the track during the week ends.

Engine

-Hot Cams

-Hinson Clutch

-FMF Header and pipe

Others

- Renthal sprockets and chain

- Works connection clutch perch and lever, glide plate, rad guards, frame guards

- TM Design chain guide/slider

- Pro Taper handlebar

- Acerbis hand guards

- Factory Effex graphics and Seat Cover

Any other goodies I should include in the budjet?

What do you guys think?

Thanks

High compression piston

Thought about it but NAH!

More compression = more heat = less reliability. I don't wanna get into that at all.

Thanks for your suggestion. :thumbsup:

If you want the truth, ditch the fmf and get a white brothers, pro circuit, rocket, or dr. d exhaust.

I want a header/pipe combination that will increase bottom power, not only peak HP. which one is the best?

Amd by the way, what the h... is "Rocket "?

yeah not a big fan of fmf. mostly because they are overgloried. they have good pipes but id go with the dr d. oh and rocket is a semi new brand that has not really been tested alot. looks cool though.

I've seen (heard) the DrDs a lot on the track. they have a great reputation.

I'll consider seriously. White bros and pro circuit are serious stuffs I'm sure...

Get your suspension set-up before you go blowing huge amounts of cash on a 1-3 HP increase with a pipe. Suspension will actually make you faster.

I would just leave the cams stock! For the reliability reason as above. I can not see that much of a gain by changing the cams. They might change the powerband, but that will either add to the bottom end or top end. I have not tried different cams though. Make sure you try the 50 tooth rear sprocket though.

I've got a Rocket Exhaust on my 250F. Check out my garage for a picture or two. I will vouch for what a great pipe it is and for the price you CANNOT beat it. Plus, it looks totally trick, which is always good if you have friends you need to one-up.

I'm not sure to follow you. I can't be way off saying that more compression leads to more heat can I? This is just laws of physics. Then I can't be way off saying that overheat is not really good...

What I mean is that the YZ250f engine revs high enough, has already what? 12.5 comp ratio, low amounts of oil considering the performance and heats way enough as is... I'll buy a 450f before buying a high comp piston...

Just my humble opinion.

Do you guys consider the cooling system of the YZF250 can handle a high comp piston easily?
