Weight reduction

This was done for a magazine article and pretty much pushes the limits on weight reduction.Tusk and Zeta make LED's that go in the hand guards if you don't want your blinkers that close together.This...

Chain Guard

I took the chain guard off and left left it off.I think you'll be okay as long as you don't carry passengers.

Intella-jet

I have been interested in the Dial -a-jet concept for awhile now and have heard some good things.The idea is to run the bike lean so it works at high altitude but compensates when you're not.I think...

Ttr rear wheel

The TTR 225 wheel will fit with slight modification.The 230 wheel almost certainly won't unless you know something I don't.The brake is larger on the TTR225 which is one of the advantages and...

Socket size

I believe the back two are 22mm and the front has a 22 and a 19mm.I got that off the procycle website if you wish to confirm.

Sunshade

I recently bought the AFX-39 with the shade that goes on the outside.It might be obvious but I'm not sure how it attaches.Thanks Brian

big bore

Any reason not to go this route?I heard someone say the TTR and XT motors don't have the exact same cylinders so it may only work on the TTR. http://www.xr100.com/ttr230.htm

Oil cooler

One other thing I forgot to mention that you may not have seen is an oil cooler made to go on the XT in place of the smog canister.If heat buildup is an issue it might be worth looking into.

New battery

I went on your site to see what battery would fit a 2007 Yamaha XT225 and it directed me to the OEM Yuasa.That can't be right unless you don't make one for my application.Brian

Air box liders

I have never used them but the company that sells the dial-a-jet also sells the air box sliding door mod.If you google dial-a-jet it should come up.
