Question about 2008 Yamaha XT250
The battery needs to be replaced, but I did not think that it mattered. I want to go riding with my son that is six, but I need to fix this problem. All the wiring seems to be there and no missed connections, but someone could point me a direction to start I would be very grateful. Thank You for your time.
Hi, Ryan for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

Generally for old bikes, removal of any loom connections in FRONT of ignition coil will do it. But beware. you have no way of turning the bike off except swift removal off the plug lead. High rev use will also damage rectifier/regulator and cdi units as correct source coils have been wrongly circuited with no lights.

You didn't say WHY the cam / valve timing needs to be reset. For some reason I get the feeling someone told you that resetting was needed and so you are asking how. Obviously, you may have installed new pistons and that is why the resetting is needed. In either event, when the cam timing is set the valve timing is also set. Other than adjusting valve lash, setting the cam sets the valve timing. Below is a web site where you can do a free download of a factory service manual. The process is not hard but having a manual will be more help and faster help than I can give online.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your reply. I've been to the web site before and downloaded the manual already. It does not really cover the situation I have. There also seems to be a lack of compression with the bike. A friend has lent me a workshop manual so I will try that in the mean time. Thanks again "
