I put on the TPI slider, and am very happy with it. I keep it fully open at home (6500' and riding up to 11000'-ish) and close it when riding in say, Death Valley.

CS sprocket

So after getting some much needed help about my airbox and what not, I decided that this was the place to ask all my questions. So I got another for ya'. The XT had its first passenger today(with me, of course) and did great. It did MUCH better than I expected, the only thing I didn't like is the gearing. It isn't as much of a problem when its just me, I mean I only weigh 140 lbs. So my question is simply, has anybody here put the 16 tooth Countershaft sprocket on? If yes, how does it do offroad, I don't wanna lose first because I still trail ride a little. That being said, Is it worth making the change?

Thanks for the info, I'm curious where you mounted the slider, is it on the side or top of the airbox?
Possible to see pics?

re. 16t sprocket, a well discussed topic here. If you are riding two up, I would stay w/ 15t. As others have said, try it out, it is a 15min 15 dollar swap.

Ok folks. This is my first bike...1994 xt225. It had apprx 9500+ miles. This summer I put some miles
on... Just under 11000. The original owner had laid it down, basically cosmetic damage. At what time
should change fork oil? Never worked on a bike before but I am machically inclined. About 80% of my
riding is around town.
What jets, I live in Idaho, elevation is around 2200ft. Sometime when I get throttle puttins around response is slow/jerky.
Any thoughts, keep in mind I've never worked on a motorcycle before.

Damn, thought it was. Go up near the top of this page to ‘Search this thread’ & search for 16 tooth. Saw a lot of posts on page 2 of 3.

Your service manual should tell you the oil change intervals. You have one?
PM me if you need one.

Anyway, yeah it is time to change your fork oil.

It sounds like your carb might need to be cleaned(google carb 101 and carb 102 for instructions).

Also your mixture screw should be adjusted if it hasn't been done.

Good luck.

Nuggets.

If you get that carb clean and sorted out, you will be starting out in 2nd gear on the street like I do. 1st is pretty much my "woods" gear. Stock 15 cs.

Decided to try that 16t front sprocket swap and headed on over to Ebay to find me one... However there are a bunch of different ones listed as fitting the XT225. They are all different part numbers, which one do I need?

Okay, figured out the differences... It is the mounting style... Anyone know off hand which one is right for the XT? On a business trip and want to order before I will be with the bike again.
