Seven years is like the blink of an eye
Jay Clark has a knack for scanning the classifieds of his local SoCal paper and browsing Craigslist looking for deals on dirt bikes. His latest find was this 2005 YZ250 two-stroke
for the sweet price of $1000. Jay didn’t even have to fire it up to know it was a smokin’ deal,
especially when he spotted the Metal Mulisha graphics, and the guy selling it admitted he
spent more time drinking beer than riding the bike. The YZ250 hasn’t undergone a radical
change in the past seven years. We checked the bike out before Jay went wild with it, and
trust us, Jay might have scored a once-in-a-lifetime deal. Jay being Jay, he couldn’t just do
the simple stuff like new tires and levers. He went for the heart—the engine and suspension.
