    Well im a little bored so i thought ill post up my 'other ride'

    Name: Sean
    Age: 19
    Location: Adelaide

    Make: Yamaha
    Model: YZ250F
    Year: 2005
    Colour: Yamaha Blue

    Engine Spec: 249cc, liquid-cooled, 5-valve, DOHC, 4-stroke w/titanium valves
    Compression Ratio: 12.5:1
    Carburetion: 37mm Keihin FCR flat-slide w/throttle position sensor
    Ignition: Digital CDI
    Transmission: 5-speed w/multi-plate wet clutch
    Exhaust: Standerd (Before DB Standerds were applied)
    Suspension/Front: 48mm Kayaba inverted telescopic fork w/adjustable compression and rebound damping; 11.8" travel
    Suspension/Rear: Kayaba single shock w/adjustable preload, compression and rebound damping & separate hi/lo-speed compression adjuster; 12.4" travel
    Brakes/Front: 250mm Floating Disc
    Brakes/Rear: 245mm Disc
    Tires/Front: 80/100-21-51M Dunlop
    Tires/Rear: 100/90-19-57M Dunlop

    Extras: New Blue grips and bar end caps, Plastic Frame guard to stop boot rubbing, Black number background with 337 in white
    Future Plans: yamaha hourometer fitted for timing services, new triple tree pad,

    I Purchesed this bike close to 6 months ago from a local Yamaha dealer,
    the bike was in very good condition for its age, with barely any scratches and even had the orignal tyres on it it was a bargin at just shy of $6000

    the bike i find is much nice to ride compaired to my old bike which was a 2 stroke 250, the power seems more applieable and just genrally nicer on the rocky trails around my area

    not a yammie fan?? i assume
    yer 250s are nice, seem to have enough power and they arnt to heavy
    anything bigger and i assume you would have way to much traction probs but they would be nice for long enduro rides

    yer coming off aint the best, by im not botherd alot.
    my thoughts are atleast im still walking;)

    Get a road bike! That way you not only need to worry about broken bones, but getting road rash, cars hitting you, pulling out in front of you, running red lights and so on. It's fun:D


    Nice bike by the way:thumbsup:

    we have life...... yay
    running a little ruff though and i think the bars could be bent a little

    might be because it was sat for 4 months and the plug has rusted or fouled really bad.
    anyway its due for a service so will get it solved then

    Nice ride mate, good to see you on Team Blue, (well for motorbikes at least, lol)

    i happen to have the model ride as you, pretty sweet aint it

    also had a pretty major break last year, broke my humerous bone in my shoulder, its the ball in the shoulder joint, snapped it in half going over the bars over a jump in the mud, and let me tell you that it wasnt very humerous !!!

    so where u go riding, looking for a couple of new spots around the place??
