Here's my new to me 2005 Yamaha TT-R250T with 1259 miles on it, arriving at it's new home. I believe it will be the perfect bike for me. I plan to modify and plate it for highway and trail use. It's my new TAT bike.

I was building the TT-R250 for use on the (TAT) Trans-America Trail. All the dualsport stuff was added and it was ready for street use. Then... I traded it for a new 2008 KLR650. Easy come, easy go!

I have a TTR 600 03 model. Haven't done much with it for various reasons. It only has 350k's on it. I've finally found a 20 litre tank for it. I orginally purchased it to use as a hard-core dirt tourer. A bike for trips to rough, tight or sandy for my GS.

Have you reinforced your sub-frame. If you have, could you tell me how, and post a few pics. I love to see pics of that rack without the panniers fitted.

Here's my uncorked plated 2002 ttr250

The procircuit pipe is awesome. I ended up going with the flush mount blinkers in the back, or they'd be somewhere in the dirt in Moiser Valley DFW right now. Love my ttr. Also have a 1990 cr125r. It's fun but I always fly higher, climb bigger, and ride faster on my ttr250.

1999 Ttr250

I had a 1999 TTR250 bought used in 2005 and had it for about a year. Found out after buying it that it was raced for 4 MX seasons and rebuilt a couple of times , It looked good when i bought it . Developed a bad habit for consuming oil . I managed to run it very close to being dry a couple of times . Blew the stock back shock off of it . I used and abused this bike like crazy. I doubt any other bike with as many hours and miles on it would last half as long. I sold it and the buyer rebuilt the motor and did a good job, way better then the past owner. And its been sold/bought a couple of times since then still going strong and not chewing through oil as much as when i had it. I liked the 6 speed it had and how it would do about 115 km/h. Also felt like it had lots of bottom end power. I enjoyed it. heres a picture i have of the poor abused beast.

As a lifelong UK resisdent - I have bought a TTR600RE



Only had it a few months, but really enjoying it. Sold a 1986 45,000 miler DR600 to get the TTR



As already said - stupidly small fuel tank but the electric boots cool.
Averages 60mpg, handles OK, great brakes & suspensions more than adequate if you don't go silly.
Nice bike, as they are cheap (the youngsters want the latest KTM, so they ignore these old lumps) and easy to service & maintain.

Overall a good little bike - just dump the std exhaust for something lighter, noisier and less restrictive. I dumped the std fork plastics for decent gaitors and now have some "bark buster" hand guards.
