Anyone parting out a DRZ250?

Recommended Posts

I desperately need a 2001 (or any air-cooled year) cylinder head.

I recently found out my "ticking" noise was my intake cam literally bouncing up and down in the journal due to the previous owner over-tightening the caps:foul:

I've contacted engine dynamics and they claim it's "Damaged beyond repair"

Ebay has nothing, and I've contacted every salvage yard I could find, with no luck.

I'm really hoping someone might have a used cylinder head to sell me, as I don't feel like forking out $600 on a new one

Thanks in advance!

Well, long story short, I have another head coming:banana:

I am now wondering if I could use the old cam chain? With the intake cam moving up and down, I'm sure the chain has been "worked" pretty good.

Would I be risking the chain breaking and causing the piston to arrive uninvited to a valve party...?

Thanks in Advance!

The old cam chain is not an item to save money on. Get a new one!

yes, this. Go ahead and get a new chain, they're relatively cheap, and you already have the thing opened anyway.
