I'm wondering what tire this is? It DOES look chunky.
Come from over your way I believe!

[QUOTE=tdvt;22572319]Do you mean the chain guide block on the bottom of the swingarm? Not sure if we have the same ones or not. The TTRs here don't have any kind of chain guard on the top either.

Yes my bike has a guide block on the bottom of the swing arm

Was in the local dealers this week and it seems Yamaha Aus are doing ADR TTR 230s again! $6999 on road vs about 5g for the basic model.

sick ttr 250

My ttr has develloped an illness.
Cruising on a flat piece of road it runs fine - add a slight incline it will die in the arse and start to miss a bit - have to down change and bog its way up.
This has gradually gotten worse over the last couple of rides. What do you reckon.......
crap in carby ?
spark plug ?
valve clearances ?
low compression ?
time to trade in ?

I willl check all these things this weekend but open to suggestions ...
