2018 YZ250X (2-STROKE)

$8,049

Plus taxes-fees.

Cross country and enduro racing are currently experiencing increased popularity and growth. Based on the legendary YZ250 2-stroke, the “X” version has been developed using all of Yamaha’s extensive 2-stroke knowledge to produce a model that offers a high level of performance for cross country racing. The YZ250X is a lightweight, compact machine that is both exciting to ride and affordable to own and maintain.

The YZ250X is a super light weight package that offers serious 2-stroke power. The engineers modified the cylinder head, adjusted the compression ratio, revised the exhaust port timing and changed the gear ratios in the 5-speed transmission to better suit cross country racing (vs. YZ250). The YZ250X engine offers a good depth of power with an easy to use engine character.

Cross country focused chassis features include softer suspension settings front & rear, an 18″ rear wheel for more puncture resistance, an aluminum side stand and a fuel petcock that offers a reserve position for peace of mind (vs. YZ250).

  • "Speed Sensitive System" 48mm, adjustable, inverted, "twin chamber" KYB fork. Front wheel travel is 300 mm (11.8").
    • twin chamber design means the damper unit is in a separate structure which prevents aerated fork oil from entering the inner damper assembly & degrading its damping abilities
    • the inner damper is pressurized, it also eliminates bubbles forming in the oil
    • "Speed Sensitive" design means the damping force is controlled by piston speed, not position in the fork
    • low friction fork seals provide reduced stiction for a smoother stroke
    • spring & damping settings are optimized for cross country use
    • fork adjustments include: 20-way compression damping & 20-way rebound damping

  • Fork also features a Transfer Control Valve (TCV).
    • TCV enhances damping from mid to full stroke & improves bottoming characteristics
    • TCV offers more precise control throughout the full suspension stroke
    • TCV is located on the upside of the spring & its function is controlled by piston speed, not piston position, hence the term "Speed Sensitive System fork".
  • Large "wrap-around" plastic fork protectors.
    • provide excellent protection from dirt, mud & stone chips
    • "self-supporting" design reduces friction for smoother stroke
  • Monocross link rear suspension features a fully adjustable, Kayaba, piggyback shock which provides 315 mm (12.4") of wheel travel.
