Question about 2003 Yamaha YZ 250

1 Answer

My dirt bike isn't changing gears

My 2003 YZ250 doesn't seem to be shiftig through the gears. Just bought off line last month. Had to rebuild the top end due to a burnt piston, seized in the cylinder. Is there some way to check if it is actually changing gears without a complete teardown?

Sounds simple, but make sure your shift peg isn't worn at the splines. some times it will pull it to the shift point then it will slip.

Aside from that you have to do the complete tear down to get into the gearcase. check your oil make sure its clean.

2009 Yamaha yZ250 4th gear keeps getting hot and galling


Hi, Msportum5618 and I have been told, read, ridden, and believe the Yamaha YZ250 is an ICON and one of the greatest dirt bikes ever made. Any bike is subject to failure, especially competitive performance machines. The oil type is not the issue the usual suspects are:
1. Incorrect transmission oil level.
2. The oil delivery system to the shaft is malfunctioning.
3. The shaft is bent, runout should be 0.002" max bearing/running surface damaged/galled or has lost its hardness due to excessive heat/blue color and gear failure, a new replacement recommended.
For this scenario, you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

Need help on the letter


WR stands for wide range if I remember in 1989 there was the YZ250 and the WR250 both two strokes.
The WR was the enduro model with a wide range gear box. low first gear and overdrive in top
The WR four strokes started around 1998, but Im not sure if the gearbox are much different to the YZF.
In australia there is a compliance plate on the headstem with model ID.

Hard to start yz250 dirt bike 2001 4stroke


i used to own a yz426f and it had the exact problem... a fresh plug will fix your problem. change the plug and the bike will run great. also don't start the bike and shut it off , my bike would be fine if i started it and rode for a while getting to the proper heat range help save the plug. if my bike didn't start in one or two kicks it was usually the plug.



hope this helps
