I ordered spokes from Buchannan in preparation for the supermoto conversion. I'm going to run 18's. If any of you guys/gals have aftermarket mirrors on your XT225's, can you post a pic and link where you got them from? I'm looking to get rid of the stockers. Thanks!

Yay! An XT thread!!

So without reading the last 1600 or so post, has anyone had any issues with the turn signal relay? Or, what about taking the 225 engine to a 350? Just curious. I bought my XT in Feb and it has the TTR225 engine in it, so I got the original XT engine. I thought about rebuilding it and making it a 350. If it was going to be possible. And I am not one for someone to tell me it's not possible.

I took this bike to the Nat'l SV Rally in Fontana, NC last week and after putting 700 miles on it, it is by far my favorite bike that I own. Henry proved more than capable to get me out of any situation I happend to get myself into. Including riding in the dark and pouring rain on the Cherahola, after having just rode the dirt cherahola, to riding the dragon at 10 pm.

Just really wanted to say Hello.

I do notice with the snorkel removed the bike seems to have more top end.
I haven't done anything with the snorkel, nor did I shim the needle. Once I did the jet swaps, Uni filter, 3 turns on the pilot screw, she ran great with the Z1 modded stock exhaust and the aftermarket exhaust, so I called it good. I didn't want to chance having some of the complications that others have had....:cool:

Thanks. Actually, I am a member there too. It's just hard for me to find stuff there. Plus, my boyfriend keeps bragging about this place.....

One of the drawbacks of a plastic tank is no magnetic tank bag. Someone of the XT225 forum posted about a $8 tank bag from Rocky Mountain that goes over the gas cap and hangs off each side. I ordered one... hopefully it holds enough. I will post a photo with both Clarke tank and Tusk tank bag when they show up.

If anyone else plans to order the $8 bag (or anything else from that site - rockymountain atv) I found a coupon code for 10% off.

I just ordered and it worked. The coupon code is: 96639

Eh? Really Nice!

But shorts and flip-flops? I guess she has never experienced roadrash or engine burns....(NONE of plans are going down, but if we are challenging ourselves or some cager-turkey pulls out in front of us...)

edit: HERE IS THE LINK TO THE TANK BAG
I have bought a couple of bags like that, the one problem with them is they have nothing to attach them on the bottom. You need to add something or they blow around in the wind, they were designed to sit on an ATV.
Some have velcro on the back to attach to the tank, again, works on an ATV, not on a bike going 50 MPH.
Sewing a loop for a bungee cord on the bottom should work.
