CANT FIND A STRAIGHT ANSWER ON FORUMS , NEED HELP NOT SMART ASS COMMENTS
Background - cool weather has me motivated on doing a ground up restoration on my 97 yz250 , last year I fully restored my first bike that got me into the sport a "1993 yz125 " . Just like my my build last year It seams Im stuck with the bastard children of Yamaha , parts are hard to find and seems to be little or no aftermarket parts. I have already spent well over $1,000 on this yz250 in plastics , custom graphics , asv levers , custom gas tank , exhaust and other crap so the most cost effective way would be best lol. I'm wanting to change the look of the bike with black wheels , rims are 160-220 each depending on brand . spokes are 60+ each set and labor is about $200 locally to lace and true . I have searched high and low on forums and google haven't found a single aftermarket set that fits a 1997 everything is 99+
Question - I have found a newer set of wheels https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/1071/42645/Tusk-Impact-Complete-Front-Rear-Wheel-Kit what do I need to make these work on a 1997 ? I know my hubs are 20mm and 99+ have 22mm. if you could help with part numbers or links on what I need.
Here is what I'm going for ( top pic ) the one below are my progress , frame goes to power coating tomorrow
So i just rebuild my top end of my 2005 250F, i had 35 houres on my piston and cylinder so i decided to rebuild it.
it ran perfectly before the rebuild, my timing is right, i have spark, en my sparkplug is a little wet so i have fuel... If i try to kick it it starts to run but after 2seconds it stops running. does anyone know what i have to do?
thx Medard from belgium

So I am 270# and 6'. I used to ride and want to get back into it. I definitely have a good amount of experience to handle both a 250 and 450 but not sure if a 250 will be able to handle me.
Right now the bikes I am between are:
2012 YZ450F @ 50 hours for $4000 CAD and trail ridden https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1302150376&requestSource=b 2012 KX450F @ 35 hours for $3800 CAD and trail ridden https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1300722287&requestSource=b 2010 CRF450R @ 45 hours for $3200 CAD and trail ridden https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1296942462&requestSource=b All these bikes are in really good condition from what I can see from the pictures and none of them raced or track ridden. My plan is to build a 5 acre track in my backyard and build some sort of track along with mainly using it for trail riding.
I guess what I am asking is for some suggestions and opinions that could help me decide.
Very nice Rekluse Core EXP 3.0 Clutch that has been ran for about 40 - 50 hours. The Core EXP 3.0 gives you the best of both worlds as it is fully automatic and allows you to operate it just like you would a manual clutch. Was getting ready to install in a 2017 YZ250F so I wanted to freshen it up and bought a brand new EXP 3.0 Disc which has never been oiled up or installed. Before getting time to install the clutch, I decided to sell the bike. It fits a 2014 - 2018 Yamaha YZ250F.
