2002 YZ250 (X) build up almost done

Recommended Posts

This is a handshake work and parts for trade deal* to build my friends 2002 YZ250 into a much more friendly trail/enduro/XC machine.

He is ThrottleTherapyRacing (drag racing machines) and wants to dive more into offroad for fun and exercise.

The list is rather long but nothing crazy, some parts were all ready on the bike, Mike Crow Performance Suspension (Race Tech), wide foot pegs, fat bars, Scotts steering damper, FMF Gnarley, FMF Turbine Core S/A muffler, Warp 9 18" rear wheel, Michelin Enduro Med with Michelin mousse (rear), V-Force 3 reed cage, JD Jetting, BR8EIX plug, Answer pillow top grips, ARC (I think) older style no break levers, the dual hinge types, Acerbis hand guards, upped the gearing by 1 tooth down so its more tame, may go more, Steahly flywheel weight middle weight I think 9 oz) and a few other bits and pieces.

These CrMo YZs are some of my favorite machines for all around use from MX to offroad. They are still 100% competitive with the late model bikes when set up correctly, especially at the amateur level (like all of us 99%ers)

Zeta billet front sprocket guard, Hammerhead shifter, Boyesen ignition cover, BRP upper triple assy. Hyde Skid Plate, Moose pipe guard, blue anodized rim lock caps. I have a Shinko fat used but good for the front that will be stuffed with Mousses. FahQ Racing and FahQ MC stickers among others for the "the look". Some other fender graphics on the way for dress up.

Done she just needs fresh fuel and a test ride with suspension clicker adjustments. Won't be quite as fast as his Busa......but it will be a helluva lot lighter and have that cool 2 stroke sound!!! we will do a front tire swap asap from my 300 Husky ( very good condition) Shinko MX216 Fat front stuffed with Mousses

The Acerbis hand guards are on now (not in photo)

only thing on B/O are the Yamaha Blue Plastic Polisport frame guards/covers. (blue bling things)

Flywheel weight?

9 oz Steahly (from current owners recollection of weight) but he said the middle one which is an 11, it's 9, 11, 13. So whichever is in is in!

It's in there the steahly cover spacer is installed. I am going to recommend he switches the hex drive screws for phillips lower  profile more rounded screws, those hex screws stick way out.

This bike should be a tractor, test ride later this week. 40:1 Maxima K2 Shell Premium will be the chosen mix.

40:1 being  the easy 16 oz oil into 5 gal. fuel mix

I was also recommended the Maximum K2 from the mechanic that did my top end and PV. He said it’s good not building up in the PV.

Good deal Robert! I converted a 1990 KX250 into an enduro model and the flyweight was one of the best mods for the tights.

Done and shipped, will add a slightly used Shinko 90/100-21 fatty when I pull mine for the change to Michelin fatty.

Motor is magic, pulls cleanly from bottom to top, suspension needs only clicker adjustments to settle it down, it is very loose as is.

Haha...and thanks for sharing the link. I've heard that FahQ word used many times over the years...I believe I may have even used it a time or two when my bikes were not "cooperating" the way I wanted them to...
