On this week’s Two-Stroke Tuesday we give you an exclusive first look at our 2007 Yamaha YZ250 build with Rado Bartovic from Dirt N’ Iron in the Dirt Bike Magazine studio. This thing was in rough shape when Rado picked it up. If you are thinking about buying a new two-stroke this year the Dirt Bike Magazine staff can help, check out the 2021 2-Stroke Buyers guide in the middle of this post. At the bottom of this post we give you another exclusive look at the head of our video department Travis Fant’s 2007 Yamaha YZ250 Jeremy McGrath tribute bike.
On this build we worked with industry leading companies like Wrench Rabbit, Supersprox, Dunlop, TM Designworks, UFO Plastics, Tom Morgan Racing, and Nic at Decal Works topped it all of with a semi custom graphics kit that literally sparkles under the studio lights!
IMS oversized gas tanks are essential for off-road builds providing almost double the amount of fuel capacity as stock. These are available in both natural color and black with screw-on cap or dry-break, quick-fill systems. We will never complain about more time on the trails.
The FMF Turbine Core 2 silencer is crucial to this off-road build keeping us legal on the trails with a US Forestry Service Approved spark arrestor system.
As you can see almost every bolt on the machine was replaced using a Spec Bolt Nickel Wurks kit. They are stronger than OEM and look way cooler. Internally the transmission received big upgrade via Hinson Racing components and a WR250 wide ration gear conversion.
The engine was completely rebuilt using a kit from Wrench Rabbit and Tom Morgan Racing worked their magic on the cylinder head combination. A V-Force intake system and Smart Carb now supplies the engine with fuel.
Don’t worry this is just the first time we are showing you this machine, there is a lot more planned so stay tuned to the website and YouTube channel for more.
