Fork Adjustment

Can anyone clarify the front fork adjustment on the TTR225? I see the rear has both pre-load and damping. The fork just seems to have damping adjustment.

Is the pre-load adjustment on the forks basically a spring change?

Rear Shock Rebound Damping Adjustment Knob Not Clicking

The rebound damping adjustment knob on the bottom of the shock on my 2005 TTR250 doesn't "click" when rotated. The manual describes settings in terms of "clicks".

As it is, I have been making adjustments based on the number of partial rotations of the knob.

Does anyone know how the clicker mechanism works and whether it is in any way required for the proper adjustment? I'm trying to determine if a replaceable part is missing.

My guess is the clicker mechanism serves to hold the adjustment knob at the desired setting, but is independent of the shock vertical function.

My 03.

Below you can kind of see the aluminum heat shield that goes between the pannier bag and the exhaust. It also goes between the side cover and the exhaust as well. This has been an awesome addition, allowing me to keep the bags further back so I can use more of the seat. Im 6'2" and I need to be able to scoot back on the seat every once in a while.

.
The cutting board skid plate did excellent. I did some higher speed riding since I was alone (Read: not fast and out of control, it just wasnt as leisurley as normal) and it took some fist sized rocks being thrown at it pretty damn hard and it shows no signs of damage. Im quite happy with this.

.
And the ex-CBR windscreen. There is a gap b/w the screen and the "fairing" that air moves through and I think this creates some slight turbulence around my helmet...I will have to plug this gap somehow.

Here is the aluminum heat shield to keep my Wolfman bags from melting.

Front Compression Adjustment

Swamper,

I have searched the intereweb extensivley for this info and found very little, just enough to tell that the adjuster screws at bottom of fork legs (under rubber covers) should be the adjusment for compression. I recently popped the rubber covers off and found these were at 10 turns "out", from what little info I've found, the more clicks "out" reduces compression dampning. Interestingly, there was a tiny "10" stamped into the adjuster, under the rubber cover. Since my TTR250 has a tendency to pitch forward on downhill jumps, I've adjusted it to 7 clicks "out" and will report results when I've had a chance to try it out.

I had been wondering why I haven't seen more on the TTR around the forums. They seem like they would make a great DS, and the price is so much lower than a lot of the other bikes it's size on the market. Personally, I like the simplicity of an air-cooled engine, and I don't need a ton of power cause my skill level isn't up there (for now anyway) in that realm.
Glad to come across this tread

The TTR250 is a bit of a forgotten bike... they are quite trick
for what they are... fully adjustable shock - pre-load/rebound damping
& compression damping adjustment .. forks with air pre-load & rebound
adjustment in the bottom.. & they are not overly heavy at 130kgs..
I have a GYTR tail pipe & short header pipe.. made the motor come alive
lots more bottom & mid range..the WR250f Rekluse clutch is just magic in real tight terrain...



the next mod is a set of 05 YZF USD forks...

The forgotten TTR250 as DS

Nearly 100% of the TTR250s sold in the U.S. were not set up to be street legal. They are essentially the same bikes as sold in other markets in street legal form (ex. TT250R, etc.)

The 2005 I have (in the U.S.) even has the threaded sockets for the rear-view mirrors in the factory handlebar fittings just covered up with a plastic plug.

If you search the for sale listings in the U.S. you will find quite a few TTR250s which have been converted and are currently titled and registered for street use. So, if you are thinking about the bike as a DS, you can probably find one reasonably priced which is already good to go.

Mounted up my Garmin to use as a speedo / odo / GPS. Much better than the odometer-only setup.
