Back to a YZ

Recommended Posts

So, I sold my 2001 YZ250 to CelticDude here on the board last year and have regretted it ever since. Went to a Husky for awhile, and decided to get back on a YZ. Brought this home today:

Will spend the next couple of weeks getting it set up for this year's enduro season. Can't wait to get it out on the dirt and have some fun!:banana:

Ha ha ha! :lol: I got a great deal on your old bike and have had an awesome time riding it! Glad to see you are back on a two smoker again! If you want to get the suspension revalved go with Racetech. Once I did that, the bike improved a lot! :banana:

Welcome home Paul.

If you guys had the husky he had, you would have given up on it long before he did. They are 99% good, he just fell into the 1% bracket.

it doesn't look like it needs much. I'll see you out at JV next weekend. You can break it in riding the desert scrambles.

Rode a '09 AND a '10 Husky TXC250 today. WOW! Nice grunty single track machines with unbelievable brakes. :banana:

That said, was still happy to get back on my YZ250 today. Glad you found another YZ!

Looks good! Drop it off with a blank check and I'll have it ready for the weekend!

Since you have a trustworthy steed, does that mean we will be seeing you out there more often?

Must have been a Monday morning or Friday afternoon bike. :banana:

Mine are awesome. I am looking for the 03 YZ250 to add to my stable.

Gary, if you're looking for a green sticker you should be looking for an '02.

'03+ gets the red sticker. If you're looking for newer than '02 (don't care about red sticker), you s/b looking for an '05+ for the aluminum frame. Or 06+ for the SSS forks.

Nicely done Paul! I'll bet you'll be able to go right up those sand hills now! :banana: And I'm sure it'll start alot easier than that husky as well! :banana:

Seriously, it looks like you got a good one there... congrats! :banana:

The Huskies are good bikes. I had a couple of issues with mine that I had to sort out. I was trying to get one bike to race and dual sport, and the 250 was too much of a compromise for both. Too small for a true DS, and not as much fun as a smoker to trail ride and race. It was a fun trail bike, just didn't have as much fun factor as a YZ.:banana:

Hey, I made it up most of the time! lol But you're right, there's nothing better than hitting a hill like that in second or third gear with a YZ on the pipe!:banana:

So, did you get rid of the Husky? You can't give up on them yet.

Sure did. If I were to stick with a Husky, I would need a 2 stroke WR250 for the dirt and a TE450 for a DS.

If you decide to get another Husky go new and at Up-tite in Santa Ana. You just don't want to inherit someone else's problems. My TE450 runs great as you saw, I just can't climb hills worth a shat, and the rear tire is pretty worn out. (more operator error than tire :banana:) Nice purchase on the YZ, looks like it will be a ton of fun.
