Hi guys,

I've just moved to Norway permanently and sold my Ducati Monster 1100. As any road bike sits in the garage like an ornament most of the year here, I've decided to get my two wheel fix by purchasing a Yamaha YZF 250. There are plenty of trails in the forests here - some perhaps more for walking than riding, but that's part of the fun I suppose.

There are a few motocross tracks about as well. I doubt I'll be competing so to say, just want a toy to have fun on.

Anyway, I'm completely new to motocross riding and from what I've read the 2006+ YZF 250 is a good choice. I'm soon to be looking at a few here and wondered if anyone had any advice on what to look for and ask about.

A few people have said something about the valves every 100 hours or so? I'm really clueless on this front as I've just had road bikes before.

Any tips appreciated.

Thanks,
Antony
