thanks for the link greyracer 513 and how can ya tell its a 250?

The ignition cover, the angle of the cylinder, and the size of the cylinder head and clutch cover viewed from the right. Also, the '06 450 head doesn't have the cast in boss for the old decomp shaft anymore.

For openers, the year is obviously wrong. That's an '06+.

But the big thing is that it's a YZ250F :banghead:

yea your right its a 250f lol. the way i can tell is look at the header it dont come down as much as my stock 450 pipe.

i dont no if i would buy this bike, to me it seems like its stolen just for the fact that the guy listed the wrong year wrong model and he only wants like 2000 for it. i just get a bad feeling about it:excuseme:

The waterpump is also a dead give away that it is a 250F. The 450 waterpump is much different.

I saw ads like this on craigslist, it is a scam, i didnt know either but I saw the same ad showing a06 in pictures but said it was a 03 or 04. It was priced to good to be true and it was. I tried to make contact but no email address or phone # was shown and recieve no reply from seller. I did get a note from another guy telling me about this scam. and I have seen other bike scams that i now recognize. be carefull.

had a guy email me about a bike i had 4 sale on craigs list and said he regretted not being able to come see the bike but i seemed like a honest person and he would buy it on my word and he would be sending his mover to pick up the bike and he would have a cashiers check for 300 more than i wanted for the bike to pay the mover and for me to give his mover the bike...the title...300 cash out of my pocket for the check amount difference:crazy: i replied back to send his mover on over and a detective will be here to help out with the transaction and never heard back from him again:p

Next one of those I get, I'll invite him to come pick up the bike and not tell him a detective will be there.
