    Neighbor hit me up for recommendation, bought his son a 2000 250 that needs some maintenance, he hit me up because he knows I have bikes.
    Trouble is, all my bikes are big adventure bikes and I had no clue who to send him to.. Help?

    Thanks

    If the neighbor is at all mechanically inclined... he should do it himself. The owners manual for that YZ is a complete service manual that will walk you through everything from chain adjustment to fork seals to crank bearing replacement.

    Put it this way. I can’t imagine owning a YZ and NOT working on it myself.

    I get that, I explained to him that his bike was about as complicated as a lawnmower. :D

    That said, he's a working man and has 3 kids, it's his son's bike and I don't think he's too interested in working on it himself.

    Thanks for the responses, folks. :thumb
