    Whats the point of this? Are yo going to repair the engine? It needs to come apart. Your engine may not be economically repairable.

Splitting the case is not that hard esp. on 2-strokes. failure to remove all the pieces can result in further more costly engine damage.

you should at least remove the engine and flush thoroughly with the cylinder and all drains and covers removed. after this you should be ready to rebuild it.

97 yamaha yz250 excessive oil in exhaust keeps fouling plug


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Oil tank/pan overfilled.
2. Restricted oil return line to oil tank/pan.
3. Restricted breather operation.
4. Restricted oil filter.
5. Piston rings badly worn or broken.
6. Valve guides worn and or seals worn, crushed, missing, or have come of guide and are literally pumping oil through the valve guide.
7. O-ring damaged or missing from oil pump at crankcase junction (also results in poor engine performance). For more information about your issue and valuable "FREE" downloads that you will need please click on the links below. Good luck and have a nice day.

Need a ignition wiring diagram for a 1999 yamaha yz 250 engine.


http://www.4shared.com/document/sMjNLzGr/2003_Yamaha_YZ250_FR_Wiring_Di.html

The link above is the wiring diagram from the 2003 Yamaha YZ250, but I am not sure if this will match the 1999 Yamaha YZ250.

Here is a link to the 1999 Yamaha YZ250 Service Manual, with the wiring diagrams: http://www.powersportresource.com/details.php?mID=237

It is less than $10.00, making it a great deal if the diagram I provided you doesn't match up.

Hi I am doing a simpile head & cylinder inspection. Just bought the bike smoking bad. The cylinder & piston are damaged. I will be replacing piston rings & doing a bore job to match new piston....


The diagram below should work for you. Put the piston on TDC. the OHC cam gear will have a single mark or may have two marks, see below. Be certain the front side of the chain is taut when mounting the gear. The cam chain tensioner keeps the back side taut.
