New for 2006:
Speed sensitive system, 48mm Kayaba fork tubes move the TCV (transfer control valves) above the fork springs, so that damping force is now controlled by piston speed. Along with a bigger base valve hole, the result is a smooth ride and super-precise handling.
A thicker rear shock rod, a super-light titanium shock spring, reduced-friction Kashima coating of internals and a revised swingarm all work together for fantastic rear wheel control and a sweet ride.
Increased fork pitch, also gives great handling.
Carburetion revisions and a new exhaust pipe meet FIM requirements and produce arm-stretching, broadband power.
Light and strong Renthal aluminum handlebar in new clamps with 10mm of adjustability.
Aggressive new front fender and front number plate up the style factor.
Tapered rear wheel spacers ease sliding the rear wheel into place, for quicker tire changes.
Liquid-cooled, 249cc, reed valve-inducted two-stroke engine is lightweight, compact and features an incredibly wide, hard-hitting powerband.
Patented YPVS power valve system combines crisp, hard-hitting bottom-end acceleration with strong midrange and eye-opening topend.
Special-design carbon fiber reed-valve petals improve throttle response and engine performance across the entire RPM range.
Smooth-shifting, 5-speed, close-ratio transmission with heavy-duty, multiplate clutch.
Primary kickstarter ensures smooth, easy starting action and reduced weight.
Large-capacity radiator features a ten-row core with four louvers for maximum cooling efficiency.
38mm Keihin PWK carburetor with power jet and throttle position sensor (TPS) ensure precise fuel/air mixing and extra-crisp throttle response throughout the powerband.
Digital CD ignition system delivers precise spark for faster, stronger response anywhere in the powerband.
Trick, works-style clutch lever features race-spec barrel adjuster for on-the-fly adjustability.
An aluminum frame and swingarm produce big weight savings, giving YZ250 the best handling in the 250 class.
48mm fork with TCV (transfer control valve) for stable damping, improved mid- to full-stroke performance and great rider feedback.
Removable aluminum rear subframe constructed of square-section pipe for reduced weight.
Rear, fully adjustable Kayaba shock with 12.4 inches of travel, separate adjusters for high- and low-speed compression damping, and a full lock oil rebound system for increased comfort.

Lightweight 21-inch front and 19-inch rear Excel rims provide exceptional durability and help reduce unsprung weight for optimal suspension performance and handling.
Premium Dunlop D756 knobbies offer race-spec traction and wear.
Wide, cleated, folding titanium footpegs are lightweight and provide excellent comfort, grip and ground clearance.
Special-design flat “gripper” type seat and fuel tank, forward-canted steering crown and low handlebar provide excellent movement and more comfortable ergonomics for riders.
Wide-diameter fuel tank cap ensures easier usage, while larger tank opening means faster, hassle-free refueling
