  1. Hmm . . . I have yet to ride the 06 YZ250 so I don’t have first hand knowledge for the 2 smoker but I have ridden my cousins 06 YZ450F. I have to say it rocks compared to his 03’ YZ250. On the note of it feeling “heavy” I am not sure how it can (other than Psychosomatics or 2 stroker bias) the YZ250 weighs 211 lbs and the 450 weighs 220 Lbs that is a grand total of 9 Lbs. Take into account the larger fuel capacity of the YZ250 at 2.1 gallons Vs. 1.8 and the starting race weight gets closer and closer together.

    How do you guys check your oil yz250f?

    I take a look at the sight glass, and check all of the other fluids so I know I am good before I go out again??

    My Yamaha ! A Question !

    I know what you are talkin about "the hose dosen't have enuogh slack to pull the strainer out of the oil tank"... what I did was take the black oilhose off at the crank case, then loosen the clamp on the hose on the strainer side, then you can use the allen key to take the strainer out. wala!!
