I had a dirt tricks in my 2010 250f, and thats not listed on adventure spec either, but it certainly used to be. I'm sure someone will correct me If I'm wrong, but I think the EXCf 250 is the same engine as a '11 SXF, the enduro bikes tend to lag behind the MX bikes by a year. Which should put it as a Style 1. I've had a quick look on a parts diagram, and the engines seem the same for a '12 EXCf and a '11 SXf. Hopefully someone can confirm it for you.

thanks that's useful, I have had a little look at different yrs of the model, and know the cam tensioner cap is different part no, but haven't checked against the sxf, I did check for other issues such as oil pressure, but no leaks or loss of oil, but not looked at the cam chain, it's done 210 hrs,

Might well be the chain. I had one on a 400 exc that was goosed at similar hrs.

have checked part numbers for oem cam tensioner, and cam tensioner end cap, between the 2012/13 excf and the 2012 sxf, both exactly the same numbers and can get a manual tensioner from as3 for the sxf. confusing why it's not listed

Be careful just checking the numbers of the tensioner itself, I'm pretty sure its the same number for all the 4 strokes for years and years. The difference with the Dirt tricks one is its got a ridge part way up the body to hold it in place, and its in a different place on the style 1 and 2.

makes sense, I was wondering if that is the difference between models, in the depth of how far it is machined into the head
