Agreed, about the only bike missing is the XT-250! That website is definitely worth bookmarking, and have done so!
They have impressive inventory as well as prices, I think I'll be ordering my next battery from them.
Thanks!

I was just happy to find the un-obtanium sealed battery that drops right into my f650gs without any mods.

Can you still get these? How much would it be and how long would it take?

This part is not available normally in the US but it looks like someone has figured out the supply chain...http://www.ebay.com/itm/280848433246...=p5197.c0.m619 I repaired mine with a brass tube and some epoxy.

OK,quick question. The clutch I ordered for my XT has a plate that's narrower than the others and the diagram states there should be an extra piece that fits inside to even out the space. A cush spring or sumsutch. The clutch I pulled out did not have a narrower plate nor an extra piece. Everything fits in the basket as it should,so do I need that inside piece to that one plate? The clutch I ordered is to an 06 so it's right,just a bit put off by the different plate.

Shown as item #5. That’s all I know about it. You might just have to put it together & see if it works. Don’t add oil or start the engine, just see if will release & engage in while 1st gear.

Hey, this is GypsyAngel's other half.

Yeah, it appears our 06 XT225 had stock 6 identical friction plates and the Cushion spring is not part of the equation.

The replacement friction plates we ordered are obviously for an earlier model that used 1 type A friction plate and 5 Type B friction plates. The only difference on the Type A is that the inside diameter is a bit smaller then the rest so that "cushion spring" (item #5 on the PDF), can sit inside there.

I don't think we'll have any issues without it in there. Its not like the clutch plate can go anywhere since its got the same outside diameter as the rest. It will just have a bit less friction material on that one plate.

I guess the question is do we leave that smaller plate in the middle or move it to one of the edges? Not sure it even matters?

Thoughts?

Here's the comparison of the Clutch diagram from an earlier model to a later model. I'm not sure when this switch over occurred. Everything else looks the same other then that one clutch plate and cushion spring.

Early model


Later model

Thank you. It's called a cushion spring and was apparently ommited on later years. We'll give it a try without and see how it goes.

How tall is your wife? I'm 5'2", 27 in inseam. We want to ride the TAT and I am considering this bike. Recommended?

I'm 5'1", 27" inseam and my XT225 fits me very well. I don't flatfoot, of course, but it's thin enough and light enough that that doesn't matter.

I might honestly lower it an inch if I ever do the TAT but that's because of my relative inexperience on "real" off-roading terrain and I think I'd just be more comfortable. For the dirt/gravel/small rocks that I've taken my XT on, I've been just fine with it stock.

My wife is 5' 5", I don't her inseam but she has long legs. Yes I would highly recommend the XT225, it has a fairly low seat height and is not top heavy.

I'm 5'3" and touch firmly on the balls of my feet with NO modifications made to the XT225. I would be flat footed if I had taller boots, but haven't gotten to that piece of the puzzle yet. I've got time, it is still snowing here!

My room mate rides mine often and she is 5'2" and is far from the ground. She has to do the side saddle and one foot on the ground at stops. But it doesn't bother her, and she rides it.

Newer rider and new (to me) XT

Well, after lurking in here for far too long, I can finally join in.

2007 XT225 with only 80 miles on the clock. 118 mile ride later and we're home.

Thanks for all the excellent information in this thread. Made the decision to get one easier than finding one. Now to get comfortable riding on dirt.
