    weight of a 2001 yz250f

    No problems here
  3. I went from an xr400 to my yz250f......I ride with my kids one weeknd and the other I go with my buddies on long trail rides. If all you want is to cruise around with your kids I suggest an xr250 just in case you decide to go on a nice trail ride with your buddies. XR's are bullet proof.

    motors blow not worth building

    I see bikes as throw aways...ride them hard till they break (4 yrs)....then get a new (used) and start all over.
  7. 3 to 5 hours???? Wow I live in AZ and do mostly trail rides and I change the oil every 10 rides (2.5 hr rides) without any problems...yz250f

    Oil Filter

    I have use both the 142 and 141 (HIFLO)....The 141 seems to fit a bit better and I am seriously considering returning the 142 for a 141. BTW: The HIFLO is also a brass mesh style.

    Oil Filter

    I use HIFLO filters on my 2001 yz250f...The web sites calls for a "HF141" but the hard copy catalog at the local store calls out for "HF142"....&%$#@! Which one to believe???

    thoughts on ttr125L vs. CRF150

    Last year I looked at both (for my 12 yr old son) and I went blue due to its weight first and price second. Many people talk about the 200+cc kits for the cr150f....is that the case why not get a yz250f...that's what I ride.

    ttr-125 tube/tire

    Even though I do also replace the tube every time I get flat....I don't see what's the problem with a patch? I don't do the work myself so I am pretty much forced to buy a new tube but hmmm I may just try it next time.. Still why not patch???
