suspension fitments

My 04 125's shock blew out, and i'm looking to just buy another one for cheap rather than send it out to FC and spend $600+ to get it revalved and rebuilt. I was wondering what size shocks would fit on my bike, i've heard the yz 250f and yz250s fit but i wanna be sure. Thanks.

2002-2007 maybe all the way up to 09. if you want it stiffer for a heavier rider get a yz250 or even a yz450f

Before you buy a used shock, give Dave a call, I'm sure he can rebuild your shock for less then 600$ and you'll have a shock close to new with great customer support for tuning.

Buying a used shock could send you back to square one in no time (blown shock).

So i just went on ebay and found a shock being sold (supposedly) by Josh Hill's father. He said it was off his 05 yz250f, and they get a bunch of shocks every year, he said this one was sitting on the shelve for a while. My main question is simply whether its blown or not. It's a pretty good deal at $140 shipped, but i don't want to spend that if i don't have to. From what he said it sounds like the shock was not used much, but i wanna see what you guys think.

      Hey guys I live in Cali and I need green stickers to ride during summer. Not only that, but a spark arrestor is required. I just want to know something. Where can you ride without a sticker or spark arrestor? Maybe even on the streets?

      Hey guys I read an article saying that the 01 YZ125 has six gears. But other people are saying that it's 5. How many gears does it have? Just asking. Thanks.

      2006 YZ 250.. The manual calls for 10w30 (yamalube 4 stroke oil), can I use 10w50 (Motul semi sythetic 4 stroke oil) ??   I bought the bike, want to change the gear oil before I ride tomorrow but all I have at the moment is the Motul 10w50  semi synth.  Is that oil going to be too thick compared to the 10w30 or will it be fine..  Thanks

      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
