Thank you.
Get a DRZ250 rear disc off Ebay if you can't buy locally.

Difference between 1990 DR250 (US model) and Djebel?

What is the difference (frame/engine) between the 1990's US DR250 and the Djebel sold in European/Asian markets? Other than electric start.

I am also interested in the headlight on the Djebel 250XC, if it would fit a US DR250.

According to this BikePoint (Australia) review, the DR-Z250 is a relabelled DR250: http://www.motorcyclespecs.co.za/mod...rz250%2002.htm Can this be confirmed? The photos look like the same frame/motor and bodywork, except for the swingarm.

Is the DR-Z250 swingarm a direct fit for a DR250?

The DRZ250 closely related to the 1996~ DR250rs below but not the earlier DR250/350 shown at the bottom.

Running Way Hot

Anyone have a problem with the 250 overheating? I am out this weekend riding and unfortunately we are having to do more highway than I wanted. I have had it happen hree times now. I will admit it has been going up the mountain in 6th gear wound out pretty good. I have never had an overheating problem prior to this. Any thoughts other than dont do that....

No I have not changed anything yet. Someone mentioned that a larger jet would probably help. I wonder if a little thicker oil might help. I am assuming you installed an aftermarket oil temp gauge? Can you post specs and pics I like that idea.

JETTING is almost surely too lean! Fix that first, and then ride baby ride......

I love my DRZ, took it out on some local trails last night, broke off the plate I was riding it so hard
.

But in all seriousness, I was able to keep up with kids on their 300exc's


They don't wear gear (read: they consider riding apparel work boots and a helmet, while I ride with mx boots, knee/shin guards, kevlar lined pants, upperbody armor, helmet, gloves, etc) so I don't really consider it fair, I can just bomb through things and they have to worry about breaking their toes off

This thing just CHUGS though! I can put it in 1st gear and literally crawl up rock formations that I never would imagine trying on a 650!

Airbox to carb boot

Is anyone here parting a DRZ250? I need the rubber boot between the carb and the airbox if anyone has it.

We need to see the pictures to believe you.

Hope the trails tires are working better off-road than on-road.

Ill take a picture of whatever fine they give me at the DMV for losing my plate


EDIT: I also need a suggestion for a good KNOBBY for the front, the trials tire is great for the rear, but I need something with a knobby shoulder to help cornering in the loose stuff, the trials tire seems like it looses grip about 5 off of straight up and down!

Try Shinko 700 or 244, not a knobby, but should serve as 50/50 and they are fairly cheap. Or the Kenda 270... You will see all opinions on these tires, do your research..., You should be able to get a set for less than $100

A kenda k270 on the rear with a knobby up front works well
