    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 (2017)

    Just got it, but all my research says it will not disappoint. Best thing is its not orange!
  5. 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.

    2016 250X

    http://www.dirtrider.com/features/first-look-2016-yamaha-motocross-off-road-models/
  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

    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.

    OffRoad Squid needs a YZ250X or KTM 300

    It fits the Pro forum, he passes AA riders all the time. We all know he's good. Just trying to help the guy out. A KTM 250 is pointless. 300 is better enough at things to be equivalent to a YZ250X.

  14. Hey All, I am pretty new here, but not to new to dirtbikes albeit has been a while since I owned one. The bug bit after some reminiscing with friends and family members about riding when we were younger and I decided to grab a bike to both have something active to do in my free time and to enjoy as well as to maybe hopefully get in shape and do something competitive. So I bought a 2016 YZ250X new and have since been enjoying outfitting both myself and it for riding and with hopes of "participating" in the Mid East Hare Scrambles in my area. So I figured I would share y outfitting experience and the parts I chose. I am a bit of a researcher and somewhat particular in both functionality and aesthetics. so I have combined the parts list I finally settle on as well as the ones I am still undecided on. Perhaps it will help some of those in the future wanting to do the same and perhaps some of you can comment on items I haven't yet purchased with feedback of your own to help guide my decisions. So below are the mods/upfitting I will do (Hopefully quite a bit of it this weekend) or are waiting on parts to arrive to get installed: Handguards: I settled on Fastway Version 3 handguards. my reason was as much aesthetics as functionality. I really like their flags color choices the best of all the others, the simple clean installation using the bar cap clamps for a secure no twist mounting, and to keep the handlebars free of other clamps that clutter everything up and get in the way of cables and what not. most I considered were designed as a one size fits all and the adjustability while good in that scenario often leaves the finished product looking kind of oddly out of place. I hope to receive the Fastway's on Saturday and be able to get them installed. below were the color choices I found most complimentary to the bikes already great appearance. I settled on the Black/Blue Flags. if you only looked on eBay, Motosport or Chaparall you may not have known they have an incredible color selection for about every brand bike out there and the graphics are at least IMHO pretty sharp looking. I almost wrote them off because the black/red pictured on those sites mentioned turned me off of them. and If I am going to shell out that kind of money for such a simple product, It better look pretty dang good..lol. Handguards https://fastwayperformance.com/hand-guards/hand-guard-products/fit-handguard-v3-1-1-8-bar-128.html Flags (which are sold seperately if bought from Fastway so you can choose your own color scheme) https://fastwayperformance.com/hand-guards/hand-guard-products/f-i-t-shields.html Handle Bars: I went with what seemed to be the concensus on Handle bars for a taller rider and better comfort for my height (6'-1"), which were the Pro Taper Evo Windam Bend Bars. I don't know how they will fit or if they will be enough of a height increase to satiate the feel on the bike I am looking for. I suppose time will tell once they are installed, perhaps they will suffice and allow me to forego an additional small offset riser. hoping that is the case so I don't upset the factory designed layout of what makes these bikes handle so well. http://www.motosport.com/pro-taper-evo-handlebars-oversize-118 Foot Pegs: Being slightly taller then the average rider and being 41 years old and a (good) bit out of shape, comfort while riding is important and I felt cramped on the YZ250X Cockpit. perhaps its because the last bike I rode consistently on was a 1987 RM250 and the shape and design of bikes has changed a bit since those days. So in order to get some of the comfort back in the cockpit of the YZ, I opted to drop the pegs and remove some of the aggresive camber which I can't seem to get used to. I dropped the pegs in two ways, by using the Fastway Evolution 3 Footpegs which are adjustable from stock to a dropped and back position. The second way was by purchasing a set of System Tech Racing Foot Peg Lowering Brackets to drop the peg mounting point straight down 10mm. I figure between those two mods the pegs will be as low as I will be comfortable with, but should realy change the way the cockpit feels. Perhaps once I drop some weight and feel more at home on the bike I will see if removing one of the two adjustments would be beneficial but for now I want my center of mass as low as possible to help adjust for rider overweight..lol. pictures of these well made and beefy products below: System Tech Racing Foot Peg Lowering Kit http://www.systemtechracing.com/category_s/69.htm Fastway Evolution 3 Adjustable Foot Pegs http://www.motosport.com/fastway-evolution-iii-footpegs Suspension: For my big arse, I needed the bike to work as intended and the riders that the engineers in Japan designed this bike around are about half my weight and shy a few inches of me. now that the height and cockpit cramping is hopefully going to be resolved, I need to get some steadier springs under me so I don't roll around the track looking like I belong in a early 90's low rider music video. With alot of excellent referals directing me towards Factory Connection I decided to give the a call and have them size me up for a rear shock spring and pair of fork springs. the verdict was they had to go into the very far back where the guy who still collects paychecks resides but nobody ever remembers is still there.. back in those dark recesses and dusty shelves is where you find the "Big Guy oversized springs..lol they said that a 6.7kg rear spring and 0,50kg fork spring set is what their secret software says is the right fit. I put my trust in them because that isn't a spring rate you see in many online shopping outlets.. they usually quit around 6.3kg in the rear when using the drop down menu. yeah thats not a kick in the pants for your self esteem...lol so, I said ship em good sir and they did and shortly following they emailed tracking numbers that have them hitting my porch Friday (2 day ship from FL to NC, Not too shabby! very friendly on the phone too, no rushing, took the time to patiently answer my questions and gave good easy to understand answers without treating me like a 1st grader. easy to overcomplicate making a technical discussion understandable in laymans terms and they were very good at balancing that discussion. As for their secret recipe the software kicked out.. will have to wait until I get them installed this weekend to see if they are near the mark or not. Factory Connection parts were ordered direct from Factory Connection. you likely won't need to do this and can benefit from the free shipping and slightly better price Motosport or one of the other box outlet suppliers offers them at. one thing I am slightly disappointed in is the shock will be yellow.. but I guess it will have to do. Vibration Damping in the Handlebars: I researched this for a long time, and I decided to give the "Dead End Shorties" a try for alleviating some of the harsh bone numbing vibration I get through the bars that of course leads to premature arm pump and numb hands.. not a great combination to have while riding around the track doing things I probably shouldn't be doing in my current state of athletic (or Nonathletic) conditioning. I could not find a whole lot about these, but they did a cuple things I liked. I like the absorption principals used to transmit the vibrations into the lead-shot-filled endweights. i do believe this design has merit and am anxious to test it out. a side benefit is the ends have a bice tapped hole for mounting the fastway handguard bars too. of course since i am swapping bars I figured I would just grab some new grips for another layer of vibration damping. I went with the Pro Taper Pillowtop grips in grey and black. hopefully these two things tame the beast down a bit and allow me to get a bit more riding time in before I get "Stranger" hands. look forward to seeing these results! Dead End Shorties http://www.ktmandhusky.com/product-page/3d857068-4049-b9a0-825b-cc5f77782da9 Pro Taper Pillow Top Grips http://www.motosport.com/pro-taper-pillow-top-grips-twist-throttle SkidPlate: The last Piece I would Like to add to this wave of goodies is a Skid Plate. I have looked at many and read thread after thread and do think I am now most leaning towards the TM Designworks unit in Black to match my Black guard Flags..lol What are your thoughts on this unit and if you have run one do you like it or would you prefer something else and why? TM Designworks Skidplate http://tmdesignworks.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=325_327_356&products_id=1157 Well think that wraps it up for this week at least, I will update with installation reviews and thoughts and of course pictures of all the new toys installed! Thanks for any and all input (constructive at least) Chris
  15. 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

    Gear down my 250x

    So... I love the stock gearing on my x for most of the riding i do. I have however found 1st to be too tall for certain trails (red trail in the san rafael swell kicked my but last weekend). My question is this--how much room do i have to go up on the rear sprocket with the stock chain? It sounds like most people are going 13/48, but 14/52 is almost the same ratio and an easier swap. Also just considering going 13 on the front (13/50) when i know i'm gonna get really technical. That would be the easiest and cheapest swap. That's pretty low though. Those rear sprockets are expensive! I know a recluse would probably make my life easier in certain situations but i've never felt i really needed one and definitely don't want to spend that kind of money. Opinions? Thanks.

    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!
  19. Title says it all.. This is the first time I have ever boiled a tank of fuel on this bike... I'm sure some of the heat issue is coming from my clutch abuse. Maybe I need a Rekluse but I would think this type of stuff would slip it a lot too ... Whats your take? Small fan maybe.. At the end of the vdeo you can see the Radiator boil over and then a few minutes later the fuel was still boiling.. You can see by my heart rate I'm about to boil over too at this point.lol

    I love it.
  21. 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]

    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!
