Engine breaking on a 08 yz250f

Recommended Posts

Okay I took my 08 yz250f out for some practice yesterday because I've been riding my 125 alot, and when I was riding my engine breaking was really strong. I tried my friends 07 rmz250 and it had little to no engine breaking. On my bike it felt like one of my brakes were stuck, but you could hear the engine break. It was ridiculous. What could this be. Also my chain was extremely loose. I could almost pull it off my sprocket, but I don't think thats what caused it.

It may be that the YZF has a higher compression piston than the RMZ. Try a slipper clutch if you like or get a lower compression piston.

My friend said it may be my idol??

:excuseme:Well am I just over reacting. Maybe I'm just used to my 2t?

Typically a 2t is not going to have engine braking compared to a 4t.

Tighten your chain and enjoy the ride. :banana:
