I have a powervalve spacer and a pipe spacer. I noticed the pipe spacer more but both helped tame the power a bit. They were cheap so I would say yes on were they worth it.

I have a Moose torque spacer for a yz 250. Theirs is twice as thick (10mm vs the oem 5mm) as the one Yamaha supplies, factory installed, with the yz 250's from 2003-2008.

The extra thickness kills throttle response. Their is a limit to how thick the spacer can be without screwing things up. I believe Yamaha went as thick as they could from the factory. You can buy an extra oem yamaha spacer and add 1 more gasket to achieve the same thing.

I thought the YZ came stock with a reed spacer, so do you add the moose spacer to the existing one or does it replace it?

You could add it or replace it completly. I never tried to use them both together. Stock 5mm was great. You can remove this for more of a mid to top powerband.

I tried the 10mm moose and removed the stock spacer. It was obvious that 10mm was just too thick and I put the thing away. Something 6 or 7mm thick would have been fun. Trying them both together felt pointless.

RC is right its just going to kill your throttle response, to much dead space between the intake and the carb, which means you will have less velocity, at least right at first, and velocity is king. iv known engine builders who actually used a special putty to fill in the space between the reed cage and intake to get more velocity, obviously you can go to far either way, i personally use a boyesen rad valve and removed the stock spacer it makes for electric throttle respones and pulls really hard down low.

I dont care how it looks. That area is hidden anyway...No problem with looks.

I tried the stock 5mm spacer and loved it. 10mm killed throttle response and was the wrong way to go. Based on that, 15mm, or both spacers would be a waste of time. When your working with machines it never pays to chase thoughts and ideas that have already been proven wrong.

yeah hear ya on that no i didnt mean LIKE the looks of it i meant more like u mounted it but said NO WAY cuz of how thick it was...therefore didnt test it, thats what i meant.. but yeah this dam bike is so hard to better it frm stock hah jus saw that spacer cuz i never saw it before (aftermarkey wise) guess its just a dead end resulting in the worsening of the stock great greatness :thumbsup: .... possible power now system if i can get a good deal on one... boyesen reed valve when time to change reeds etc.. little things like that..:rolleyes:

The spacers are a good idea. In this specific case it is too thick in stock form. I I had the means it would have been cool to try the sizes available under 10mm. 10mm plus the two gaskets was too much. It might be perfect on other bikes, but not this one.

Hi,i dont see how you could improve the YZ250s bottom end anymore as there already tractor like from the bottom,i have a 08 YZ250 and all ive done to it is rad valve and pro curcuit silencer and its unreal,it has the meanest bottom to mid power and still screams up top but dont really use the top power to much as i do alot of trail riding,love the YZ power is so crisp all the way,seems more n bottom end than most 4 jokes!!

I believe as time goes on a the bike gets feeling very familiar. Its not as if it really needs more low end, but its easy to achieve on this bike.
