Couldn't pass on this deal. Runs pretty darn good for a 1992 and definitely different than the Moto 4. No cracks or chips in the plastics and seat is good. Came with an aftermarket Cobra exhaust, which is a bit loud, but the youngest said it sounds cool. 1/2 hour clean-up when I returned home. Needs a set of tires and a rear brake cable. Another project.

Nice find. They don't make em like that anymore.
That's the first year of the Timberwolf 250. Racks were optional that year in the US, standard across the board in Canada.
Those were built old school tough and reliable, lasting years with minimal maintenance. Definitely a step above the 225/250 Moto 4.

And he does it again. Nice find! I rode a Timberwolf a whole summer at a friend's cabin. Pretty tough machine. Congrats for the nice addition to your Yamaha collection!

Started to tear her down a bit to get her cleaned up. Looks like it won't be that bad.

Wow what a nice little wolf!! I'm glad to see you keeping these vintage rides going. I'm into older cars and it's very similar hobby. I have restored a Moto-225 and a Honda 200sx and had a lot of fun doing it.

Love to see some pics of your Moto 4. Post them up on my "New to the Barn #1".

Hope you score some front and rear racks for her.
They look kinda naked without them.

Working on it. Found one of each, but the distance is a bit too far at the moment. Iowa and Illinois.

Was able to get some work done on the Timberwolf. Not sure if I should have painted the front wheel black or left it. I think I like it.
