TWO-STROKE TUESDAY: OFF-ROAD YAMAHA YZ250 PROJECT BIG 6 GP

A Yamaha YZ250 off-road project we built with the Big 6 GP series is front and center on this week’s Two-Stroke Tuesday brought to you by Boyesen. This bike was raffled-off and boasted a bunch of bolt-on items. Items from Sidi and Dunlop are featured in this week’s 2-Stroke Hardware section and 2-Stroke Theater is packed full of Yamaha premix burning machines. Don’t miss an exclusive link to our 2006 YZ125 build with Faster USA at the bottom of this post. 

The race inspired graphics were laid out by Jared Hicks at Backyard Designs. Cycra Power-Flow plastics, Rad Manufacturing wheels and an all blue gripper seat from Motoseat completed the aggressive race look.

The cylinder was ported by Pro Circuit and a Boyesen Rad Valve system was added for improved performance. 

The GPR Version 4 stabilizer with their under the bar Pro mount was used for some added insurance in those high speed sections.

The Galfer 270mm oversized front rotor and steel braided lines added some much needed stopping power to the off-road YZ250.

The IMS oversized tank is an off-road necessity ! Making it through an hour GP is almost impossible on the stock tank.

We used a Rekluse Torque Drive clutch system to transfer as much of that new found Pro Circuit power to the ground. A Boyesen Supercooler also helped with keep our YZ250 power plant running cool.

Modifications and bolt-on items in key places from Pro Circuit, Boyesen, Maxxis Tires, Cycra, IMS, Galfer, GPR, MSR, and made this YZ250 and all out off-road assault weapon.

SIDI CROSSFIRE 3 TA:

The new Crossfire 3 TA is all a new model for 2018 for those riders who prefer that feel of a sewn on sole vs. the more firm SR version. The 3 TA is identical in features to the 3 SR, with the exception of the sole. Our off-road riders love it because of the TA sole and the ability to rebuild the whole boot.  The TA model has a softer rubber sole that has better brake/shifter feel and that is more comfortable if you do some walking or bike wrestling.
