1999 YZ250, good woods bike?

Anybody have any experience with the '99 model year YZ250? I'm looking at a super clean one that's already been "woodsified" (FWW, S/A, skidplate, barkbusters and lighting coil).

Just wondering if this is a year to avoid with the YZ250's for woods/offroad use? Any serious design flaws that I should look out for?

1999 good year, first year of the current engine,

only thing to watch dont put too much flywheel weight on,

9oz will do.

Yes...good bike, if it is in good overall condition, regardless of any 'trick' stuff on it. How much?

As said before, it's the foundation for the "current" YZ250 motor. Great woods motor. :banghead:

      A tiny clear rubber tube on bottom of carb.  On bottom sort of on side, by floats, the other end just hanging down.  Was it always like this? Or does the other end go somewhere?  Today after multiple trys with kick, choke on/off ,,,fuel keeps pouring out the tube.  This bike has always been hard to start.   Thanx  guys!

      I just did my valve adjustments and put my YZ250f back together as far as the valves, shims buckets and cam covers on but I need adhesive for the plastic valve/cam cover and I am stumped as far as what to use and where to get it or even what to call it! Need to get some soon im in need of a ride!

      Hey guys, I bought this YZ85 and came to realise the clutch wasnt working, so I drained the oil (Jet black) and pulled the plates out and cleaned them. I assumed finding a torque wrench would be easier than it has been. Does anyone know how to torque the clutch springs to spec without a wrench? Any insight helps.
