    Sidi vents on newer boots and water crossings?

    They are fine (both the 2 and the old style). Just waterproof the seams/leather and you're good to go. As dry as any boots I've ever used.

    Steering Stabilizer

    Same with me, although I bough the mount and installed the stabilizer before I figured out I didn't need it on the FX. I've always run one, so I naturally assumed it would be good on the FX. It's not. It slows down the outstanding handling and, unlike most bikes, you rarely miss it at higher speeds in difficult terrain. If anyone wants to conduct the same experiment, let me know, I have a nearly brand new Scotts underbar mount that's just gathering dust.

    YZ250FX Rear Fender

       That's interesting, but UFO doesn't even list/offer it on their site, so I'm not sure where dirt bike mag dug it up.

    YZ250FX Rear Fender

    Does anyone know where you can get a rear fender for a 2015 YZ250FX? None of the after market vendors seem to have them and Rocky Mountain has the OEM version as "Not Shipping". Because of the electronics, it is a different fender than the 250F. Tks.
  6. 65 hrs, power wash after every ride (with discretion), and numerous water crossings with no problems.

    Front wheel bearing replacement - 2015

    Swappa, thanks for the info and link! Being new to the Yamaha, I was really just wondering if they did it different - which they don't. FWIW - I removed the bearings using a little heat and a drift/screw driver, rather than a bearing puller. It was actually easier than it is with a KTM, in my experience, and took less time than it did in the video using the puller. I was surprised that the bearing was in as bad condition as it was. With my KTM experience, I am used to rear wheel bearings going bad, but this was my first experience with a front - and it was in terrible shape (after about 65 engine hours). On a brighter note, whereas on the KTM, the steering head bearings are very suceptible to water/corrosion and require regular maintenance, the Yamaha seems to have that problem completely solved. Mine looked like they just came from the factory.
  8. What is the best way to remove the wheel bearings from the front wheel of a 2015 YZ? Does the front wheel's axle tube float (as on a KTM)? Tks

    '14' - '15 Rekluse setup

    I have the core and went with the lighter springs and heavier wedges, which Rekluse provided for free. This combination allows the engine to be fully engaged at lower rpm, allowing you to really use the low end torque.
  10. I am 178 w/o gear and, after fairly comprehensive testing, ended up one size up (4.7nm) on the fork springs and with stock rear spring. Didn't have a problem with bearings being greased, although i haven't taken apart the swingarm yet.

    Fuel Range & Economy of yz250f 2014

    At altitude (Utah and Colorado: 4500' - 10,000') there are a few of us with these bikes and we're getting 35-45mpg - amazing!

    250fx vs ktm300

    Owned 3 x 300's over the past 8 years and now have an FX w/35hours on it. 300's: pro: super light weight (esp if you take off the starter and battery), excellent high speed power, inexpensive maintenance; con: mediocre suspension (esp newer models), limited handling/turning FX: pro: incredible suspsension, great handling/turning, excellent low end/speed power (i.e. torque); con: feel weight, more expensive mainteance, fewer aftermarket options Performance summary: I think I'm faster on the 300 in slow, tight trail, and faster on the FX in everything else. I think the net energy/work is about the same - the 300 beats you up more and you have to shift more, but requires less effort to manhandle. Overall summary: both bikes are excellent and you won't be sorry with either. The 4CS forks on the newer 300's are what drove me away from another KTM, but I don't regret the change at all.

    Hour meter

    2 strokes fire the spark plug once per revolution (RPM), four strokes fire once every other revolution - i.e. every 2 rpm's. Consequently, if the meter doesn't have a two stroke vs 4 stroke setting option, you have to multiply the reading by 2.
  14. Have both. If you use/plan to use the manual clutch override, then the Core is definitely the way to go. The Z-start works as well as the Core, imo, as an autoclutch. But the manual override feel of a Z-start is non-existent and therefore very difficult to use effectively. The downsides to the Core are price and install/initial set-up. The Z-start is as easy to install and set-up as a clutch can be. The Core is a little more difficult/cumbersome. Once you get the core in and working, it's good to go. If/when you need to make adjustments the Core is actually easier than the Z-start to tune. But that first time is/can be a little bit of a pain in the ass. When I bought my FX they didn't offer the Z-start as an option, so I bought the Core. I like having a clutch that feels and functions like a regular/manual clutch, but I'm not sure if I like it $400 worth (I use the override infrequently - possibly because I ran with a Z-start for so long), much less $900 worth if you already have a Z-start.
  15. I had the same problem (getting the tuner to connect), hit the start button and it worked???
