This is my Belgarda after a roadbook rally in the Netherlands a few weeks ago.

"I can see paradise by the dash board light"

The dash board is pretty basic, consisting of:
Road book
Trail Tech remote
Trip master

I also wasn't too happy with the starting when I came from different XR's to the TTR. You need to get used to TTR's starting habbits.
-Adjust ideling speed properly
-Don't touch the throttle whlie starting (don't even look at it)
-Keep lights in "off" position

She should fire up on the second kick, if she doesn't have a major maintenance need.

Regarding the high footpegs. In the German TTR forum, I picked up a set of nice, stainless steel low mounting brackets for the footpegs. Way better than the standard once. They might be sold out because they came from a small lot production, but least the drawing are available.
Raisers for the handle bar are easy to make.

Thanks Fantuzzi for the tips!

Mittlerweile installed the risers and airfilter from OTR, found the drawings for the footpegs, but i`m going to ride it first with the handlebars raised.
Actually it starts fine when cold, warm is more difficult, but have been reading into the German Forum as well, turning of the lights before cutting out the engine seems to be essential!
Wrong sparkplug is installed, new one underway, valves are easy, only the Ventileinsteller would come in handy.
If you spot nice parts let me know!

is there still an German Forum active?

Hi noisytoys, the German forum is still fairly active and there are already a few Dutch guys around. At least you will get quality feedback on technical questions as well as help, if you are in need of spare parts.

That's interesting. The TTR 600 was not a very big success in Europe, because it came right into the modern 400cc time. So there are loads of cheap ones still available on the 2nd hand market. I think it would have had some sales potential in North America because it is basically a XR600 with way better suspension.

i like a use TTr 600 for sure. Getting it by the EPA would be work.

I had the meeting on my agenda, but I was not available on that weekend. I think it is a re-occuring meeting of the TTR Forum, so I hope for the next time.
(...and I hope that there will be always at least one TTR on the TTR meeting)

Mine's a US-spec 250 that I bought last spring.



Have since added a Trail-Tech Vector, skid plate, replaced the missing side covers, added Hi/Lo beam & brake light along with a plate bracket & got it registered here in Vermont.

How much different is the 250? I had a TT-R225 and it was a dog. Decent trail bike, but slow as hell! I got smoked by a kid on a RM85 on the straights.
