    roadworthy yz250 or yz 125

    coming from aus, i think i can help out. Yes it can be done and if you don't mind the vibrations then go for it. All the yz250wr is, is a yz250 with a silencer and wr wiring loom and necessary lights. here it is:http://www.yamaha-motor.com.au/motor/index.htm?prod_detail.asp?MD_ID=66&modelcatid=5 of course yamaha include the compliance plate, as these are superceded models from the previous year:thumbsup:

    clutch problem

    I wouldn't think so, i just switched the steel plates on my 426 and every wall was smooth so definately something is wrong. Is the bike new?, have you opened it up before?, is there sufficient oil?

    Crack in swingarm

    thanks all for the replies. Although it looks bad the crack isn't that deep so maybe i'll just weld it. I think the bolt on the chain slider is loose so maybe that could be the problem

    Crack in swingarm

    should i weld it, or just replace with a new swingarm, or let time take its cause and keep an eye on it

    Crack in swingarm

    Guys upon buying my bike i noticed a crack in the swingarm, where the weld is. Now it is only a hairline crack but i want to get it fixed. Would it be possible to just weld it back together: MIG/ TIG/ ARC. my dad has all the welders but wondering which one would suffice. Is this going to fix the crack or will it just reappear? thanks jordan

    YZ426 query?

    thanks for the replies, i'll cross the 00 off the list. Also from what i've read, are these bikes prone to stalling or is it just working the clutch like any other bike. Can the be lugged up hills? thanks
