    Arm pump - very vibratey bike!

    Tried to grip more with your knees? Loosing up was already addressed I believe.

    How much seat grip

    Gripper Seat fan here, make me stand more.
  3. Easy to repair, some sandpaper and a straight glass aka window and after 15 min it should be good.
  4. I can't see a warped head by eye. I need a window to make it visible. Recognizing a warped head by eye is about the same as testing your compression with your thump.

    YZ250X - My first Hare Scramble!

    Raise your eyes, twist the throttle and if possible ride the course twice before the race.
  6. Have you tested if your head is warped? If waterpump related the water has to cross the oil barrier first and pass another seal.

    Matainence

    With a 125 I changed pistons every 15 hours when riding hard. Now I'd would get away with 30 I guess. Don't ride a 125 anymore I'm now on a 250cc

    98 YZ250 reed valve question

    it shouldn't. Easy to test too. Mount it and ride.

    Yz250 catastrophically blew up!

    Could well be. Astonishing how expensive case halves have become. I've seen prices from 200 to 600 US$ For that you should be able to get an lower end of an engine. I bought a motor for 300 here on TT. A few years ago though.

    98 YZ250 reed valve question

    Most likely caused by overheating at least once. Lean mixture maybe? Does it still do its job? Reeds should seal completely.

    clutch adjustment

    Plates (friction) are ripe for a change. Cable is dry as hell or both.
  13. Great spot to begin from, well we all did. Learn first to ride and try to ride standing to develop a good habit, its also easier to get off the bike quicker. Figure 8 is great, slow and exact riding will help. Look up, and look where you wanna go and don't look down for a good spot to drop the bike. Have fun riding, more skills more fun.

    Cylinder Replate, and 250X build start

    Is that jug cleaned and scrubbed? If yes a replate is in order, powersealusa being the better one IMO.

    Piston broke in yz250. How?

    Ride it a few hundred hours and you see. Top ends have to be changed periodically. Cast pistons don't last that long, forged pistons last longer but 4 or 500 hours? I doubt that.
