  1. New Piston Rings/Front sprocket = no power?

    Just rebuilt my top end in my 98 yz 250 put a 15t sprocket up front and bike doesn't seem to have much hit in the mid/high dept. The bike sounds extremely crisp and bottom end is pretty strong but when I get on it the bike sounds muffled not allowing any over rev at all, wondering if the power...
  2. 98 yz250 Crashed Then No Spark?

    Was wondering if anyone had any pointers on what to look for. I layed my bike down going over some doubles and then went to start it again and couldn't get it to spark. Checked the engine kill switch it appears to work. Did the spark test couldn't get a spark, so is there anything obvious I...

    Thanks for the reply Spanky, that is probably one area that you don't want to skimp on. That was a waste of money. Anybody want some premix?
  8. Yamalube 2S or 2R?

    Was wondering what the difference is in these two premix oils. I bought Yamalube 2S and it was $16.00 a gallon a whole lot cheaper than most other premix oils available. My uncle told me that Yamalube was a good choice for my 98 YZ250. I didn't know which one to buy and didn't realize it was...
