Hey you! Wanna race a two stroke? TZR250 Track Bike


This post is in our archives. Links in this post have been updated to point to similar bikes available to bid on eBay.

Location: San Jose, CA    Mileage: Race Bike    Price: Auction

91 TZR250

91 TZR250

Yamaha TZR’s are awesome bikes that are featured here on RSBFS as often as they come up for sale. Here you have an opportunity to pick one up set up for the track, where the bike can really shine. Lightweight chassis and lots of power means fun, fun, fun. Track or street the TZR is a rare bike for sure.

From the seller-

This is a 1991 Yamaha TZR250. 

More specifically, it has a TZR250R frame with a TZR250RS engine. The main difference being the ‘RS’ trim has the dry-clutch whereas the ‘R’ trim does not.

For those that aren’t familiar with the TZR, it’s Yamaha’s street replica version of the 2T TZ250 GP bike. This bike put out 56hp at the wheel with improper jetting (was dyno’d with 340 mains, whereas should have been 310s – short story – dyno operator’s auxiliary fuel setup was starving bike of fuel due to clogged filter), so should put out close to 60 with the proper main jets.

Bike’s top-end was freshened up a while ago with only 2 trackdays done on it since. Pistons/cylinders appeared to be in good condition.

As you can tell in the pictures, this bike has had all the street parts removed. The oil tank and pump setup have been removed, as well as all lights and the harness has been modified to remove all those connections and to remove any restrictions. 

Note Worthy Modifications


RC Sugo Exhaust chambers

Toomey silencers

TZ250 TM38 carbs, which have been modified a bit.

Key switch, etc. has been removed.

Sugo capactitor put in place of the battery

TZ250 inspired fairing stay

TZ250 rearsets




(1) RC Sugo Exhaust chamber

(1) Set of modified stock exhaust chambers 

(1) Set of TZ250 carbon fiber silencers (1 silencer has rash on it)

(2) Pistons of unknown mileage (appear to be low)

(1) Set of TZR250SPR rings (they will not work with the pistons currently on this bike – only will work with SPR pistons)

Numerous main jets, front and rear gearing, rearset parts and other ass’t parts


Random Notes


This bike is currently registered in CA as an OHV. 

Willing to help ship bike (i.e. drive bike within a reasonable distance to a shipping company, be around for a shipper to pick bike up from my house, etc.).

If you have any questions please ask.


Payment and Auction Terms


Deposit of $250 due within 24 hours of auction’s end with balance payable within 2 weeks.

Buyer must pick up item from me or arrange for a shipping company to come and pick up bike after payment has cleared.

And pics-

So if you’re looking for a TZR for a street bike, you may be able to get this back there but it’s gone take effort. If you want a track bike, then you’re in luck. The seller lists extra parts and work done to the bike. Seems like you could be in pretty good shape with this bike if you wanna hit the track.

So if you have dreams of being a 250 two stroke racer, get to work and make your play!
