Heads he wins

“I de­cided to drop a 400 top-end onto my 1980 Yamaha XS250. How­ever I stuck with the orig­i­nal head so the com­pres­sion was a lit­tle on the high side. On one oc­ca­sion I broke a crank­case lug at­tempt­ing to kick­start it. It was great road bike, al­though if held flat-out for too long the in­let valve would start to seize up.”

XS250/400 – a great road bike!
