The FMF TurbineCore 2 has a spark arrestor built in, so you
don’t light up the forest—and it’s quiet.
Life is good on a YZ250.
The Sunstar WorkZ sprocket is stainless steel and the BRP
chainguide is designed to withstand the abuse of off-road
as possible, since we’ve already smacked the frame a few
To say our YZ250 is a good off-road would be a gross
understatement; it is pure bliss. It chugs and pulls through
nasty terrain and lights up with explosive power on
demand. The bike is light and agile, and the handling is
awesome. Surprisingly, the stock suspension works very
well for most off-road, soaking up little nasties and loving
big hits and sand whoops. Part of the great handling is
the bike’s light weight; it is 20-pounds lighter than a 450
four-stroke trail bike. There are a number of advantages to
our YZ250. One is that we can change the tires, slap on
the stock tank and hit the moto track and have a great
time. In some states, Arizona, for example, you can still
make one of these street-legal—even if that seems like it
should be a felony.
The YZ250 hasn’t changed much in the past five years,
and it really doesn’t need to. It is one amazing bike.
