    This is a project I got in 2014, not running. August 2016 and I'm just now getting it running after wiring harness and valve issues, shock rebuild, and lights. This one is a beast, has either a 262 or 270 in it (not, it was geared low).  Did replace all the valves, it didn't need a piston.  Time to RRRRRip.  Finally did a top end on it, Did a once over and checked out, sold.  It was a good bike, almost kept it.

    Personal 03 YZ250F Custom: has WR250F transmission and re-valved shock and forks. This bike is YZ quick and WR fast. By that I mean 219 lbs with a wide ratio tranny gets going fast in the woods, so I have to be careful with it. The light weight with wide ratio tranny is flat out awesome. Everyone who rides this bike comes back with a WIDE smile on their face. It is not a bike you take up to TN and ride in the rocks though. The light flywheel is not friendly and a GYTR flywheel didn't help the way I wanted. So I just enjoy it for what it is, and take a different bike if conditions dictate. When I know the trail will be open and fast, this one goes on the trailer.
    MODS: Suspension revalve by Rocket City Racing, Scott, you did an awesome job with it!, thanks.

    05 WR250F, Got it sorted out. Got it as replacement for the '04 when son confiscated the 04. A huge difference between the 05/04. Jet kit, fork and seals; a little more time will have this one up to snuff. Working on jetting, seat foam from Guts Racing, changed tires, suspension sag, etc. Had to swap the CDI to test it which was a bummer, same as '03. The actual issue turned out to be jetting... too rich on the needle. When I dropped it down, it ran great like the 04.

    77 XL350, old school, dependable, still has points ignition. Nostalgia time, reminds me of the old 73 Motorsport 250 I used to have. 50 mpg comes in handy sometimes. Sold

    The absolute best handling, best suspension action of any offroad bike I've owned. Also one of the best basket cases I've ever brought home. 1 gasket set and 2 tranny gears later, this one was ripping. Huge 50mm fork tubes and steel braided front brake line made stoppies easy. Only thing I did not like to do was mix gas n oil for it. 1 kick starter, always. I knew I could get hurt with this so its SOLD.... but I still loved it. Dreaming about a WR motor in this frame.

    The Yamaha YZ/WR 250F have been the best bikes for my riding style and are personal favorites. This one has JD jetting, Guts Racing tall soft seat foam, Cycra hand guards, YZ rear fender with LED tail light, and YZ muffler with sparky. Has Fast Lap stickers and PO said they had worked on it.

    Got this bike for a deal hoping to fix and move daughter to it. Gnarley pipe had all choked up and it didn't have power to pull the front wheel up. Installed stock pipe and it ran great. SOLD

    I got this old bike as a basket case just for the engine for another project. Then I found another engine. Old school doesn't begin to describe it. Time capsule more likely. Bike still runs but smokes, so I'm taking it offline for a rebuild sometime this year. Nephew rode the bike for several years, got him thru high school in one piece. He also likes the KLX300.

    86 DR200, daughter's favorite bike. We added new tires, air filer, front master cylinder and changed the oil regularly. Another one that made someone happy for Christmas. Sold it, but have a lotta good memories with it. It always started and was low to the ground for easy stops. Great bike to teach riding skills with.

    Jeckle and Hyde; love and hate.
    Power galore, soft suspension, great brakes, seat made of a brick!
    Braided stainless steel brake lines made stoppies a daily occurrence.
    Again, 2T oil mixing required. I knew the power would get me into trouble with this one. Sold

    Found this little bike for my daughter to move up to. Ran good, but suspension was not as capable as I would have liked. Everybody liked the E-start though. Made a good Christmas present for someone.

    This was our first Yamaha 250F bike. Good bike, intimidating at first. Son took it over, so I found the '03. We kept this bike for 7 yrs. just recently sold it.
