    hi anyone have any ideas why my yz250f fouls plugs? if i put a new plug in it it starts and runs great. if it sits for a while it wont start. the plug is all sooty if i clean it it will run again doesnt smoke or use oil havent tried adjusting the screw on the bottom of the carb. new air filter no difference. any thoughts? im new at four strokes. thanks.

    Crank siezed, Causes?

    my 2001 yz250f seized the rod bearing too after the first ride of the year these are dry sump motors i was told by a dealer it you had moisture in the oil before you put it away for the winter it could cause rust pits on the pin surface dont know if its true but im going to start mine all winter like i do my snowmobile in the summer. dont want to spend another 550.00 to fix it

    Grenaded my motor today.... :cry: :cry:

    mine let go after the first ride this year. i lost the lower connecting rod bearing. ill not run it at low revs if this causes it. 550 for parts ill check my oil pump for scoring while its apart 2001 yz250f .i was told by a dealer that if you have moisture in your oil over the winter it can cause the bearings to get rust pits in them dont know if its true but im going to start mine once in a while over the winter to avoid this.
