Thumbs up Cheap yz250

     

Hey guys I found a 2004 yz250 f for sale on Craigslist. The ad says it has been sitting for 2 years without being started but ran fine before that. Itís listed at $1500 and Iím thinking of offering $800 and trying to get it running. I used ride motocross and have been wanting to get back into it forever so Iím pretty motivated to get this thing going. Is it a good idea? How much will I maybe have to spend to get it running at most? Thanks

If you can get it at that price, that would be worth it I think. I recently got a 2001 YZ250 that I didn't know the history of. Mine needed a rear shock that cost $80 (used) and $50 to install. (and to remove the old one.) It also needed a carb rebuild, a new spring and o-ring kit for the pipe, the oil drain plug was stripped, and I don't know how the engine is but it starts up and I have ridden it up and down my street. I also put some money into just getting it to look good and maintenance type things. Mine didn't have a front number plate at all, no mud flap, the levers were all tweaked, the grips were garbage, and I changed the gear oil and coolant. It has been a fun project though. I bought mine as a package deal but if I do the math, I probably bought mine for $1000..that is before I put any money into fixing it up. I say you should go for it.
