Checking the engine oil couldn't be any easier. On the lower left side of the engine, by the shift lever, is a round sight glass. With the bike held straight up, off the side stand, the oil should be somewhere near the center of the glass. Above the sight glass, also on the left side of the engine, is where you pour oil into the engine. On the bottom of the engine is a drain plug. I change my oil about every three months - or more depending on how much I ride. Use any high quality 10W-40 or 20W-50 (depending on the climate where you live) motor oil.
And yes; use straight (premium) fuel in the tank. The other thing that you will need to have done, perhaps every 50~100 hours of riding is a valve adjustment. For that I suggest you either buy a shop manual or take it to the dealer. Otherwise, there's not much else to do that is all that different from your previous bikes; oil and adjust the chain, tighten the spokes, clean the air filter, ride, etc.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:

3. Faulty thermostat.
4. Coolant pump or fans inoperative.
5. Vent hose crimped.
6. Air in the coolant and needs bleeding.

I bought dirt bike for husband! is 2005 yamaha yz250 a 2-stroke or 4-stroke? i'm not sure if it's yz250 or yz250f now that i'm to get posted i'm not sure of year. sleeve around cable say nov 2005


Congrats on the purchase! easy way to tell look at the exhaust pipe. if it is just a thin tube that is tight to the engine and goes right to the muffler it is a 4 stroke (250f). the four strokes have a square-ish head. Deep/bass-y engine sound. If you have a large (probably black) exhaust pipe with a large bulge in it (5-6" diameter) that wraps around the front of the frame, its a 2-stroke. They have a more round cylinder head. Beautiful pingy sound and a little smokey at start up. DON'T FORGET TO MIX YOUR GAS!!! there should be a serial number sticker at the very front of the frame (behind the number plate where your triple clamp/handlebars connect) Probably on the left side. Hope it helps! rate please :)
