As a descendant in the long line of street-trail
bikes which began with the DT-1 in 1968, the DT250F benefits from a barrage of
generally worthwhile refinements. Its engineering credentials (if not the
materials used) are up-to-the-minute. Some noteworthy major developments which
at least keep up a trendy appearance include the addition of reed-valve
induction (1972), the switch to the YZ-proven monoshock rear suspension (1977),
and this year's major update—the change from breaker-point ignition to a capacitor-discharge
For dirt riding, the DT has several noteworthy features, none of
which are unique to Yamaha. The DT-F's front turn signals tuck in
unobtrusively, and the rear ones flex on their rubber mounts during a fall.
With 277mm (10.9 inches) of Ground Clearance and an aluminum skid plate, you
can bounce the 250 over some pretty nasty terrain without worrying about
damaging the crankcase. The folding footpegs (at their bottom outside points)
are 343mm (13.5 inches) off the ground, and that height helps the rider avoid
wrapping his toes around the pegs. Black dust covers seal out dirt from the
fork tubes, and several other items, such as the quarter-turn throttle and
through-the-frame exhaust pipe, make living with the DT easy during a trail
In all the really important respects—engine and suspension
performance and reliability—the DT250 is either near or at the front of its
class. This year the strong and reliable 246cc engine has had a technological
chin-lift to make it attractive to the EPA. Yamaha's Research and Development
Department has revived the DT's exhaust plumbing so that the bike can meet
current EPA emissions standards. Most non-racing two-strokes are in danger of
being choked and finally snuffed by emission regulations. Yamaha isn't standing
for it. The 1979 RD400 street bike has been kept within the emissions limits
and made faster all in one swoop. The DT's new emissions-control unit, however,
isn't as elaborate or sophisticated as the RD's; the DT's Pulsating Air System
cleans its exhaust but also detracts a little from the engine's performance.
