I just got a one too.(well about a month ago)

I love mine to death, and have no complaints. Well actually I fouled the plugs a few times, but thats my error. Not letting it warm up enough. I have not ridden mine on the track yet, but it is a great woods bike.

Congrats and great choice. :cry:

P.S. If you could see under my helmet while I ride my 250, all you would see on my face is a big :cry: .

I disagree, we are all motor heads with the need for speed and the rush you get from doing something the 1st time. Remember most of us are 35 plus. So we remember it very well! I want to ride it more than anything else. I just might not bring it back, if you let me ride it, lol. It would be well worth the arsh whipping I would take.

Show us the bike Satch! I love the early American model YZ's, the yellow looks awesome. Ours had white plastics, which looked very second hand after a few rides. If I can ever find a decent YZ465G or H, I will source yellow plastics from the 'States. :cry: Oh, I almost forgot, show us the bike! :cry:

ok....you guys twisted my arm! The bike is an 82 YZ250J given to me by a friend and fellow rider in Houston. I opened my big mouth about wanting to get an older bike to restore and race in the Vintage classes...and well...I got my wish! The bike needs a full ground up resto. My goal is to make it showroom new. I have it stripped down to the frame, the frame is out for powder coating and when I get it back I will start putting the chassis together. The engine is mostly disassembled and will be the bigger challenge but I think it will just take time and finding the right parts. I cylinder needs to be resleeved but I have a lead on another one that is ready to go. Also the clutch is shot but I have a lead in those parts too.

So far I have restored the tank including OEM graphics and have had the seat restored. I have new side panels and new OEM Yamaha front and rear fenders. I have attached a link to pics and as I get the bike built I will be adding to the pictures.

Thanks for the pic's Satch, looking good so far :cry: How'd you get the tank so nice? Can you still buy new fenders/decals in the 'States for the old YZ's?

  • Satch0922

the tank was sanded and buffed...using 800/1000/2000 grit and then buffing compound.

The decals/graphics can be bought from reproduction companies. The fenders were bought on eBay..New Old Stock...they came with Yamaha parts stickers on them!! They look sweet. The side panels came from Maier and are very close to the originals.

Cool Satch! I have an IT250J, and the light blue tank is a bit faded on top. I might try the wet 'n' dry/buff it up trick on my couple of days off work. Cheers, Chris. :cry:
