    Picking up new 2018 YZ250X from

    FiveStar Powersports Monday.

    Some things borrowed from this thread:

    The YZ250X has had a number of changes from the normal YZ. Lower compression, different porting, different powervalve mapping, different ignition mapping, different pipe, softer trail-oriented spings and a WR tranny.
    5 speed
    3,4,5 are WR, I believe the 1st and 2nd gears are YZ standard.
    I also forgot to mention the 18" rear rim:

    :y0!:y0!:y0!

    The pipe is tighter to the bike but the expansion chamber is the same volume!
    The springs are the exactly the same, the valves inside the suspension front and rear is different to soften it up.
    Third gear is closer to second on the X than the Mx bike. 4 and 5 are way out there for fire roads...
    The X has a side stand.
    Softer clutch springs for a lighter pull
    It also has an o-ring chain for longer life.

    :D

    Acerbis Skid plate.

    I normally run a beefier aluminum one.

    Going try it out, if I don't like it I'll replace it. Screenshot_20190213-213937.jpeg
