    I bought this bike new in March 2017. I had the dealer find a 2016 model for me because I wasn't particularly fond of the 2017 black rims. I love this bike. It is very fun to ride. The suspension is amazing. I see what all the hype is about. I just made a couple of small adjustments to it (one round of preload and a little rebound adjustment). Very easy to start and feels so light! It's a keeper.

    Yamaha YZ250X (2016)

    Awesome
  6. As some of you know my latest thing is maybe finally giving up my XR and getting something new, so I'm really interested in a nice light Yamaha YZ250X. In Farmington there is the biggest Harley dealer for hundreds of miles, Four Corners Harley Davidson...they are also a Yamaha and Suzuki dealer, at least it says so on their big lit up sign they have out front. Anyway, having never seen a YZ250X in real life I decided to stop in the other day and see if they had one, maybe sit on it and see if it is worth further consideration (weight distribution on my XR is a problem). I walked in the door and was greeted with probably an acre of shiny Harleys, I almost thought I should leave my sunglasses on from the shininess of the chrome. I didn't see any Yamahas or Suzukis, just the aforementioned acre or so of Harleys. Sitting at a desk in front of all that gleaming chrome was an older gentleman, and perched on the front corners of the desk were 2 nice looking younger women. I stood there looking at them, they were looking at me, I finally said, "Umm, you are a Yamaha dealer...right?" One of the girls piped up and said sure we are. I still didn't see any Yamahas, or Suzukis for that matter. She got up and started walking around a corner and I followed saying I'm looking for a YZ250X. She stopped and looked at me with a confused look on her face, and I said, you know, a 250X, new Yamaha 2 stroke dirt bike. This look came over her face of maybe dawning realization of what I was talking about and she said, "No, we don't have any, but we have some Suzukis." I told her I don't want a Suzuki, I want a Yamaha (I still haven't seen any Yamahas or Suzukis). So we went back over to the guy at the desk, the head salesman I presume. She asked him, do you know anything about a 250X? He looked at her and me and said, no, we don't have any. I said I realized they didn't have any 2016s, the Yamaha website inventory search only came up with a few dealers in Colorado. But, I said, the website said the 2017s shipped in late August, any idea when you'll see them? He looked at me, still with a slightly confused look on his face, and said if that is so, then I guess we'll be getting some, but I guess they'll get here when they get here. I told him and the smiling ladies "OK, I guess I'll check back with you in a couple weeks". They smiled, and then, as I was leaving, the salesman said, "Since you're here, wouldn't you like to look at our Harleys?" I turned around and looked at him, I'm not sure what my expression was, probably amusement and bafflement all rolled into one. I told him I wasn't interested. I think I'll go to the dealer in Durango, they sell Hondas AND Yamahas, NO Harleys.
  7. Got mine last week. Spent a day breaking it in on easy trails by my friends shop in Scottsdale, Az. Stillwell Performance. He is the guru for KTM suspension and setup and has my 350XC-F working awesome and I am sure he will get this bike working even better. A little background on me: I have been riding the KTM 350 for the last 3 years and haven't had a Yamaha 250F since 2005 when I had a WR250F but rode and raced a CRF250R and YZ250F from 2001 to 2006. I haven't owned a two stroke since 1996 when Honda came out with the XR400. I was one of the first on board when Yamaha released the YZ400 in 1998. 58yrs old, 205lbs, 5'8" B+ to A level trail rider, no more racing. Managed to get a TMD skid plate off a KTM 450W to fit with some creative use of heat gun. Installed my Shorai lithium battery, weighed bike, 248lbs full of gas, and set sag. Only had 25mm free sag so stiffer spring is next. First impression: Bike is an amazing piece of engineering. It is a tall bike! Felt thicker than my KTM through the middle but never noticed it riding. Jerky throttle response and more engine braking than expected. Seemed to loosen up a bit later in the day. Very barky and strong motor for a 250. I'm gonna like it! Handles fantastic, very easy to throw into turns and still very stable when speeds are high. Shock felt great, fork ok but needs to break in. Spent an hour of easy riding then back to shop and changed oil, filter and checked screen. Everything looked good. Spent another hour and half progressively riding it harder but still on easy trails. Really impressed with this motor, suspension feeling a bit soft for my weight and fork doesn't like rocks. Back to shop for spring swap. Forks to .46kg and changed oil level. No 6.0kg rear spring in stock. Decided to call it a day. Rear spring arrived yesterday so it is installed and handguards bolted on. Ready for tomorrow on some of out tougher trails. Will mount up the GoPro and get some video. Stay tuned. Link to my YouTube page: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsfDi_MV2QqeOGpSj3H3ouQ

    This Bike is the BEST Bike I have ridden in my lifetime. it inspires a tremendous sense of confidence at all speeds, has a great smooth powerband (for a two stroke), excellent fitting bike ergonomically (with a few minor tweaks for my 6'-0" height) and is an absolute joy to ride. I have never had as much fun on a bike as I do with the YZ250X. if you are looking for a bike for off-road Trail Riding/MX/HareScrambles, this bike does all of them well! I would strongly urge you to put it on your short list!

    2016 vs 2017 YZ250X

    Hello, From what I can find here and online, the only difference is the 250mm to 270mm front brake rotor and the black wheels, am I correct?? Can anyone comment on if the 250mm rotor was an issue? My current CR has a 250mm front rotor and braking is not an issue. New honda, KTM, Husky, etc are all 260mm front disk, was there a problem? Or they are 1 upping the competition. I also hate the black wheels. Bike is designed to ride in the woods/hills and I can imagine after a few rides or 1 season there wont be much black paint left on those rims! Thanks in advance! T

    such a fun bike. awesome power. handles way better than my old WR
  13. Wondering if anyone has used the Gnarly and Turbine Core for the YZ250X I picked my 250X up in October (just in time to store it in MN ) and when It came in I had them install the GYTR Turbine Core 2 silencer as I need a spark arrestor for where I ride. I also ordered a GYTR/FMF Gnarly as well but did not have it installed. Below is DirtBikeTest.com's review of these products: http://dirtbiketest.com/product-tests/fmf-gnarly-and-turbine-core-for-yamaha-yz250x/ My questions are 1) Has anyone used the Gnarly on the 250X? Thoughts? Any jetting change? 2) I can't find online the Turbine Core 2.1 they mention in the article. I look on Rocky Mountain ATV/MC, Yamaha site, and FMF site. Am I missing it? Thanks all. Can't wait for spring....

    After 10 years on thumpers this bike is amazing
  16. I currently have a 2k yz125 I use to rip around on the track so I can feel like an ultimate hero, I don't race, it's not my thing, I'm competitive in other ways. I'm looking to buy a woods bike to start riding trails and I'm thinking the Yz250x is what I'm looking after. Is there any reason I should wait for a new better model or possibly another bike, pref. 2 stroke as I feel safer knowing mechanically how to rebuild an entire 2st. Disadvantages or advantages over other bikes? Lack of aftermarket parts such as exhaust etc.? Let me know what u guys think and feel free to ask anything else. And no I can't afford a KTM. [emoji16]

  18. (EDITED to ASSIST WITH QUESTIONS) Hi all- I imported the full cross country kit for the 250x from Australia. This will convert your YZ250X to a YZ250XRG (on road version). Kit doesn't include blinkers. My goal is to convert the part #'s for a kit we can buy ourselves in the US. The kit from YDR AUS includes the following parts: Headlight Assembly and Grahic US Part - (UFO Stealth Headlight Assembly) $120 LED Bulb Unable to translate. Box says made in Thialand with marking 59814 Tailliight US Part - (This is a taillight assembly from a 2016 WR) $100 Rear Brake Switch Wiring Harness/Loom Horn and Amplifier Overseas Part: MF-12 (Nikko Horn) - $39 Handlebar switch for Horn and Light Mirror Stator/Lighting Coil (35w) EUR Part# ELECTREX PN: ST4239L $160 The kit costs $1000 USD total. (Shipping from Australia was expensive 150 Shipping + Insurance + VAT). I can source the kit for you or you can try yourself. (Part numbers attached.) If someone can find a distributor to knock down insurance and shipping that would most likely knock off VAT. Bringing the cost into the $650-750 range shipping to your door. In Australia, the kit is only a $500 AUS $ upgrade if purchased at the time of sale of bike. From the time I receive the order to delivery is ~4 weeks. Could be longer in certain cases due to customer demand. They're a pain in the ass to get and most parts are on back order. The parts list is attached. If you can source the parts yourself and get a cheaper price that would be great. None of these parts numbers translate in the US, APAC, ME and Africa. Only in the Oceania region (NZ, Australia etc..) <<Part Numbers <<< Picture of parts minus Taillight that's installed on the bike.

    So far I don't have ANY complaints! This bike is ready to race in the woods minus protection (hand guards, skid plate). The suspension is plush, brakes are great, and the gearing is pretty darn primo.

    Best bike I've ever ridden hands down!!! Nothing bad to say other than it needs a tank and a skid plate to complete it as an "off road" bike but that's about it!

    Light and fun!!!
  24. Hello everyone, I just sold my 2 up atv to get back into bikes . Im just a novice trail rider I had a wr250f and a ktm200 way back. I plan on buying 2 new bikes a ttr125 for my daughter but I'm having a hard time deciding on for me. Im 5'8 155lbs and was actually more interested in the 2stokes because of the intense maintenance schedule and cost of the 250fs. I want something fun but not rip my arms off fast because most of the riding here in pa. is 1st to 3rd gear and would love to have a reasonable seat height. Not interested in any of the play type bikes. Any suggestions and or experiences would be great. Thanks Frank
