02 YZ motor 04 Coil?

Anyone know of any issues when running a basically stock 02 YZ 250 engine with 04 YZ 250 coil and ignition? I mean can I just throw a 02 YZ motor into a complete 04 YZ with no igniton problems. Just plug and play? Has there been any changes in between the years that may cause problems with the ignition side of things. The motors are very similar but is there a different black box or anything that may cause me grief?

An 02 coil and ignition will work on an 04 and vise versa.

You will just have to check out the mounting possitions on the frames.

Right on,

And the timing indicator marks, make sure they are located in the same place on the stator, if not then you will have to basicly set the timing instead of just lining up the marks.

Stators are the same from way back, at least as far as 01 what I have checked.

Maybe so. I do know that the 06 stator has the timing marks in a different location than the 04. Thats really all I'm sure of, however it will plug right in a work. Had to do it to get through a weekend.

That is strange they are the same part number:excuseme:

      Hey guys I just wanted to show off my bike and show it to the world lol  What is your opinion on it. God or bad, please be honest. I am open to all comments and suggestions. Any upgrades I should do to make it look better and/or faster?

      I bought a YZ250F yesterday and the previous owner said apparently it runs but they weren’t strong enough to kick it. I couldn’t kick while there so I took their word for it and bought it. I’ve been trying to get it to fire all day today, there are 2 chokes and I’m unsure if the air mixture is correct, so would be nice to know what I should do, it’s hard to adjust the air screw when the bike won’t even run. I noticed the spark is kinda low, I don’t know if it’s normally supposed to be like that or not. I can see a blue spark but it is very small and crappy, I’ve had thumpstars that generated stronger spark, I changed the plug it’s still the same, so maybe could be an electrical problem, the only ground connection I could find was for the ignition lead which I filed down to bare metal so I’m pretty sure that connection is good. Anything else I’m missing? It’s very hard to kick and I can feel the compression out of the exhaust so I don’t think compression is the issue.Just wanna know what I should do, haven’t owned a yz before so I could be not using the choke right or something. Thanks
