    Need help with a 1993 YZ250

    I have a 1989 YZ250WR witha carb for a 2003 KX. My 89 carb would not dial in so I just switched to a newer carb. I started with the jets that came in my new carb to get the bike running and then started making changes so that it ran right. I also used spanky jetting guide. it helped alot. http://users.conwaycorp.net/virtus/page2/speed/jetting.htm

    Michigan trail websites

    After playing with the map some more, you can open up a PDF map from the interactive map. The PDF map does have all the parking lots showing on them.

    FYI after taking a quick look at the map, not all of the DNR parking locations are showing up on this map.

    My WR250Z Story

    I had the same problem on my bike. Mine was Aluminum. I just took it to a local guy who welded an aluminum goober on the stopper and then I filed it to the correct shape and distance so that the valve did not tip into the cylinder wall.

    Show off your yz250x (250x only please)

    I have one of the 89 savior's as well. Yeah I know I changed the color to red but it is still a YZ250WR as well. Nice looking bike Animatrix

    My WR250Z Story

    Just wondering if anyone can confirm this statement? I have a 1989 yz250wr, and have been worried about a crank going bad and having a hard time replacing it. TIA Dustin

    My WR250Z Story

    I agree with Brick on this. I am running a PWK off of a 2002 KX on my 1989 yz250wr. I can't remember what I paid but it was much cheaper than new.

    I agree with doc_d. Ride B loop. I rode it last year and was a ton of fun. Also if you get a chance ride the section between A loop and B loop. It is pretty short run but it is fun. It is called the rollercoaster, if you look on Youtube you can see the section I am talking about.

    Spark Arrestor 89 YZ250WR??

    What type of brake guards do you have? I would like to get a set for mine. wow looking at your bike makes me think i should have went with the blue color, But I liked the red better when I bought the seat cover. I know the original color was blue and now I am wishing I would have went that way.

    Here are some pics of the bike. Just got the stickers on it, only took me 3 years. Now just if my tank was not that gas faded tank.

    Stripping a 2002 yz250

    I stripped my bike down a few years ago, and like others have said, label everything and stay organized. Also looking into powder coating in stead of painting, I did that and I really am happy with it. One little trick I used before I sent it off to the painter was to put foam ear plugs into the threaded frame holes, to keep the threads clean.

    Spark Arrestor 89 YZ250WR??

    I have this same bike and have a spark arrestor on it. I can not remember what brand and model I have but I will look when I get home tonight and post my answer
