I had a 1986 TT350 and in those days, you could get a title with an off road bike. Today, you can do the same thing in Ohio with a "change of body affidavit". What I did, was get the XT350 brake light switches (the tail light is a dual element). Adding turn signals would also be a snap.

The TT350 was a much lighter, better suspended bike than the XT350 (which I also owned) and I wish I still had mine.

A long time ago I had a TT350 and it was a realy great bike. It was my first 4 stroke and they rolled of the showroom floor street registered in Aus.
It was also my first adv bike too, although that term hadn't been invented then. Most of my mates had XR 600's and the TT would keep up with them pretty well except for outright speed.

It was a lot simpler back then, no GPS or fancy luggage/riding gear. Just a bag and a jerry can strapped onto the back and off you go.

Note the WD40 on the tyres to make them shine for the "glamour pic". The things you do when your young and dumb. Don't try that at home kids.

This should give a bit more range...

81-82 XR250/500 Acerbis tank.


83 XR350 seat.




None of the mounts line up even vaguely but it's surprisingly comfortable around the knees for such a wide tank.

It has potential

Sitting them on there and making "vroom, vroom" noises is the closest I've got to getting them working.

I've got a 250 model, does that count?

(Pic is from my first long trip and the luggage system was rather quickly improvised)
Street legal from the factory here, but off the road for now as she needs a new base gasket, some carby work and some improved lighting.

She's my first bike and I really want to get her back on the road so I can take her off-road
My second bike (GSX250F) won't do the sort of camping trips I'm interested in

Found out from Ricor that the Intiminators for a Triumph Scrambler should work with some re-valving.

Should make the front end work well and still look completely stock for classic mx'ing

My little 250 will finally get back on the road tomorrow, thanks to a fair bit of work I've done recently.

12v stator/lights/battery, DC headlight/taillight, full-wave rectified DC, new left-hand control cluster with push-to-cancel indicators, all wiring re-done and simplified (on the lighting side of things, left the ignition alone).
I've also got a RAM Aquabox (mounted rally-style ) for my GPS, DIY case saver, rear indicators relocated further back and a larger, waterproof box to replace the stock toolbox.

Some pictures:

12v stator and control cluster


No more 6v 2A/h battery, now it's 12v 7.2A/h


GPS mount, plus switches and stuff


The mess behind and the DIY speedo/ignition mount (which I'll be redoing when I get myself a digital speedo)


And the case-saver, which still needs a sprocket cover made (don't worry, there's more clearance between the sprocket then it looks)


I hope nothing falls off when I take her for a spin tomorrow

Get yourself some $18 ebay DR650 footpegs. They bolt straight up.

They look cast. Reckon they'll stand up to some rough riding?

I did a 50km cruise 'round town and nothing stopped working or fell off. I've got a 15 tooth front sprocket on (was stock 14/50) and it's nicer on the street, I think (it's been so long ). Wish she was a 350, though

Edit:

Oh, the GPS is nigh-on impossible to read in the sun. I thought I'd probably need to make a sun shade for it.

They've only been fallen off on once.

They've done a couple of 3-hr cross country races and in 3 days will be doing a 6-hr.

I like them and will be getting more.
I want a pair for my DR650, NordieBro wants a pair for his race TT350 and I want a spare pair.

All for less than half the price of a pair of pivotpegs.

Awesome.
I'm happy with the stockers at the moment, but I'll keep it in mind.

Have you had a go at making a neutral light for the TT? I haven't gotten around to it yet, but I'll be mounting 3 LEDs for left/right indicators and neutral.

Also my headlight is bollocks. Stock globe was 6v 35/35W, now I've got 12v 35/35W. I'm going to see if there's a generic H4 headlight I can mount up instead, along with some high wattage LED spot lights I've got in the making. Otherwise I'll just see what globes the bike shop has .
