Hi Im new to thumpertalk, and i need help buying a new bike. I came off a kx100 and I grew to big for it. I've been riding a 2000 kx250 but not that much, maybe 3 times. Now Im looking for a 250f. I found this guy selling a 2004 Yz250f for $3000 this is what he says about it,
-2004 YZ 250F for sale. Adult owned and well maintained. Pro taper handle bars and pro taper rubber mounted triple clamp, AVS clutch lever and perch with quick adjust, new tires and twin air flilter. Oil was changed after every other ride, oil filter changed after every forth ride and air filter cleaned after every ride. Suspension was maintained by Race Tech
-I do not know the exact amount of hours, but I do not have as many hours as one would think with the bike being two years old. There was a 6 month period that I did not ride because I coached a softball team and a three month period due to shoulder surgery. As far a racing, I raced the senior class on average once every two months. The valves have never been check, beacuse it will crank on the second or third kick every time. I have asked few mechanics and I was told if it is not hard to crank or there is no "popping" from the exhaust, not to adjust the valves. The suspension had the oil change and the race sag set, but other than that, it is stock.
Heres a pic.
It looks alright I guess, If you look closely you can see stress marks on the front fender and in the middle of the radiator shroud, I guess thats a sign of a bad crash? Also the gas tank graphic is yellowish does that mean anything?
I dont like that fact that he never checked the valves but thats not supposed to be a problem with the yamahas right?
Please give me your opinion, Thanks
