2013 Yamaha YZ250F Project Bike Photo Gallery
Although it isn’t the newest bike at the track over the years we’ve gotten accustom to the engine and handling dynamics of the carbureted YZ250F.
We rack up the hours on our long-term YZ250F keeping it running fresh with periodic maintenance. See how we did it in the
2013 Yamaha YZ250F Project Bike
We like the OE-fitted Bridgestone M403/404 combo so much we installed another set with a wider 110-series rear offering a larger footprint.
Maxima’s Maxum4 Blend Oil lets us stretch the engine’s running time between oil changes to five hours.
We use Maxima multi-purpose cleaner and chain lube to help extend the life of the drive chain and sprockets.
We had to replace the clutch in our YZ at the 42-hour mark. We fitted OE components rather than aftermarket as we like the way it functioned in unmodified form.
Although it isn’t the best at any one thing the older-generation YZ250F excels in a variety of different tracks.
