05 Yz250 Rebuild

Starting tonight.. Thought about making a thread involving pictures and in depth step by step process on doing a top end on these bikes, for some of you who are doing this for a first time.. Ill post as i go along..:thumbsup:

I tried to do this too but I forgot to take the pics so there was big gaps, haha. We definitely need one, as mine is kind of lame.

yea i just saw urs lol, sometimes it hard to stop and take pics when your on a roll.. i read urs, very interesting rebuild

I am very interested in seeing these pics and getting your step by step instructions. I have an 05 and it will need a new top end shortly. I have never rebuilt a top end but have heard it isn't that tough but some good step by step instructions would make it a whole lot easier. :thumbsup::ride:

thats why i want to do it.. i remember searching frantically back in the day trying to find help like this.. im gonna do one for the 125, 250f, 450f, 600(xr) and a 150f in the future as well

jjust check this thread out tommorow and everything should be up

I did a topend rebuild (new rings anyway) last Thurday, new chain, clutch cable, throttle cable and fork seals today riding tomorrow. If I had to take photo's and explanations it would take to long.

The manual is very clear on this proceedure.

Good luck if you have the time.

well have to take a timeout.. just found out i forgot to order the gaskets for the reed stack.. oops

I will be waiting....anxiously. :thumbsup:

      Hey guys, I just picked up a running 03 yz125 a few weeks ago and upon tearing down the top end, I noticed the cylinder head looks a little beat up. Is it possible to just clean it up or am I better off just buying a new one? Thanks guys.

      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
