TWO-STROKE SPOTLIGHT: SHILOH TATE’S 2003 YAMAHA YZ250

“My goal was to have a steel frame YZ250 with current KYB SSS suspension. I scored some older Sunline Triple Clamps and re-sprung 2006 YZ450 forks. The shock was okay stock. Small touches include Ti YZ125 pegs, FMF system, updated plastic and wave rotor.” –Shiloh Tate.

EDITORS NOTE: Please keep those submissions coming. If you would like your bike to be featured in the “Two-Stroke or Four-Stroke Spotlight,” please email me at [email protected]. All I ask is that you give a breakdown of your bike and a detailed description of the build. Please also send a few photos of your steed. By submitting your bike, you agree to release all ownership rights to the images and copy to MXA. Please don’t email me spam or try selling me Taylor Swift concert tickets or email me spam. I already celebrate T-Swizzle’s entire collective, and there will be “bad blood” if you send me junk mail. See what I did there? Happy submitting your smoker.
