YZ 250 FX Info and Bike Build Check-In

#1 Postby Willbilly » Fri Aug 11, 2017 10:34 am

I've looked over yamahaforum Yamaha-forum, ktmtalk, and thumpertalk, ironically ktmtalk seemed to be the best. Can anyone recommend a better forum for this bike?

Maybe the folks with a Yamaha are out riding them instead of talking about how to fix and modify them?

KTMTALK and THUMPERTALK are really just it.

What info do you need? I've built three FX's and have added every add on possible between the three......

Lot's of FX riders in the series we would use this forum to start.

I don't think I need anything just generally curious as to what other people say about oil selections, modifications they like or don't like, etc.

2017 250fx
At 55 hours I just inspected valve clearance and am well within tolerance. I will change the top end before the start of next season I expect to be about 100 hours then and will check clearances again.
