Scorpa Sy250f As A Trail Bike

Recommended Posts

I did consider fitting a starter motor to a SY125; as I mentioned locating the battery was going to be the biggest challenge.

Fitting the starter and idle gear looks to be fairly straight forward, here's a close up of the mounting point which you will see would need machining, or I suspect that it would be a simple matter of buying a new casing etc from a breakers.

I'm a 68 year old guy looking for ways to keep me riding on our challenging Maryland terain and thinking of moding a sy250f - so this thread was VERY interesting. IF anyone has ideas for a good bike for me to make a trail bike out of please chime in.

I currently have a KTM 200 XCW and a Beta 300 Evo 4t. The SY250F looks promising because it looks like it could be moded to add an auto clutch, normal space Yamaha gears and possibly even e-start.

Thanks for any help

Better off with the Beta, find a long range kit! Or just make a little prop seat to fit.

Have you looked at the Yamaha Tricker. i know of a couple of guys who have done a large wheel conversion on them and are very impressed with the result. Good for trail riding and ldt's

Rieju also do a clone called the tango i believe which is a bit cheaper

Alternatively what about a Gas Gas Pampera?
