Ken OConnor Racing YZ250 build for woods, GNCC, Motocross.
The Fastest One Armed Motocrosser in the World ?
We had the pleasure of meeting a truly inspirational character called Craig
Parks at the weekend. Motocross is a tough sport for anyone and everyone so
we were blown away when we found out that Craig, who lost his right arm in
an accident a few years ago, passion is riding Motocross and he continues
to do so without his arm. As you will see from the film he doesn't just
ride, he hauls ass & hits all the big jumps and shows many of the riders
the way round the track !! We have absolute respect for this

Yamaha YZ-250 Evolution
The Yamaha YZ250 is a two-stroke motocross race bike made by Yamaha. It was
launched in the 1970s, and has been regularly updated since.
The YZ250 has a 249 cc liquid-cooled two-stroke reed-valved engine with a
YPVS Exhaust valve for a wider spread
of power. The engine produces a peak 48.8 horsepower (36.4 kW) at
8,800 rpm and 30.6 foot-pounds force (41.5 N·m) of torque at 7,500 rpm,
with a 9,000 rpm redline.
Since its introduction in 1974, the YZ250 has had a single backbone steel
frame. For the 2005 model year, however, the YZ250 has a new frame made
entirely from aluminum, which brought the dry weight down to 212 lb (96
kg), and more recently in 2010, to 211 lb. The bike has a Swingarm rear
suspension system with more than a foot of travel, as well as telescopic
inverted forks with 11.8 inches (300 mm) of travel. Front and rear
hydraulic disc brakes round out the YZ.
The YZ 250 is a great dirt bike that has been around for a long time and
will be around for a while to come.
YZ250 Two-Stroke Rebuild
After a piston meltdown and a damaged cylinder Dirt Rider used Millennium
Technologies and Vertex Pistons to rebuild a 2003 YZ250 two-stroke. Test
rider Ryan Orr spins the wrenches and overall looks just plain awesome.

2013 CR 250 Project
Hey guys..I bought a used beat up 2005 cr250 and took 10 months to build
what a 2013 cr250 of today would look like.. The whole project cost me a
total of $4,700 and is one of the nicest cr250's ive ever seen..
I hope this gives people inspiration to do the same and help them realize
that you dont have to spend $8,000 on a bike that handles great, is fast,
is set up just for you and looks just how you want it.
I wish honda would make a new 2013 cr250, but i was tired of waiting so i
did one for them :) Enjoy and feel free to ask whatever questions you want,
i will try my best to answer.. Brrraaapppp!
