    YZ125 for low experience rider?

    I bought a yz125 2 years ago on purpose after owning 250 two-strokes and 450 4-strokes. I did this because i wanted to experience a 125 and all the fun and excitement they provide. I absolutely love it. Ive had so much fun ripping around on that bike. From my own experience starting into motocross with only having street bike experience and I cant imagine a YZ125 being any trouble for you.

    Stock YZ250X valving with .48's and 6.0 ?

    hey guys, the bike will be for trail riding and hair scrambles. I guess I'll just have to bite the bullet and send it out to be revalved. Its an expensive endeavor in Canada
  3. So can I got away with stock YZ250X valving with .48's in the front and 6.0 in the back? I think stock is .44 and 4.8. I suspect the answer is a hard no but I'm hopping maybe a few clicks less comp and some added rebound can compensate?

    Introductions.

    That's perfect, Husquire. Sounds like you are the man I need to talk to about getting into hare scrambles. I'm really looking forward to experiencing trail riding next season. I just picked up my 2018 YZ250X. Had it plated and will get it insured shortly so that I am legal. I have a spark arrestor exhaust on order. Now... I need to wait out the winter.

    Introductions.

    Hi everyone, Names' John and a 48 year old in Orleans with a YZ125 and recently bought a 2018 YZ250X with 30 hours on it. I have only really ridden at the local track, SandDelLee for the last few years. Love that place. I bought the 250X because I want to get into trail riding. I'll be looking for like minded people to show me the ropes in 2019 when it comes to trail riding and enduro type stuff. I want to start hitting some hare scrambles. I'll be back in the spring looking for riding buddies!

    RK Tech Head for a YZ250x Review

    I'm confused... i thought correcting the squish on an X model gained mostly low-mid increases.

    What is with the pattern on the dome? Ive never seen that before

    2019 X stock jets

    I just bought a 2018 that has 30 hrs on it... the dealer had lent it to a local hare scrambles guy. I'll be sure to ask about the extra jets. I didnt know it came with them.

    Are people buying 250X's and turning them into YZ's?

    ok... I get that... but now i have to ask why would an engineer tune an ignition map so that chamber pressure is meeting piston top before its mechanically advantageous? Edit, I think i get it now (I think). The advance might be good for making torque and power coming on sooner in the crank's rotation but this wont lend itself to freer revving.

    Are people buying 250X's and turning them into YZ's?

    OK.. now I'm curious! When I think about combustion cycle and what would lend itself to higher revving and more power I picture timing advance doing that... but Ive read time and time again of people retarding it for better running. Can anyone explain to me how retarded timing aids in a higher revving 2 stroke?

    Gee how can anyone consider the YZ250X "gutless"? Sure, it aint no hard hitting YZ250 motor but... it's not supposed to be. I dont get why yamaha didnt just keep the squish down and machine a bigger dome if it improves the low end so much. I definitely would like more low end on my X but not at the expense of ruining a smooth power delivery. I think, if anything, I will correct squish but keep volume the same with a larger dome and then add a 9oz fww to help with lower rpm work.
