On a seperate note - I got my Shinko 244s, 4.6x18 for rear and 2.75x21 for front. The 4.6 looks significantly wider than the stock 120/80 (at least unmounted). It looks more like the width of the 110/90 on my DR350, this tire size thing is a bit confusing. Anyone think the Shinko 4.10 would be better on the XT, I need a new rear for my DR so I might use the 4.6 on that bike but I see some think 5.1 is better for the DR. I probably will be OK with the 4.6 on the XT but don't wan't too detract from performance on the little 225, jam mud between the tire and swingarm or bog down the handling with a too big tire.
My XT225 has a Shinko 244/4.10 on it and it is much to small. I'm changing to a 4.60. My DR650 has a Shinko 244/5.10 on it and it looks and works great.

Me for one. I worked 13 years for Caterpillar who had a factory in Mississauga. (Brampton too if I'm not mistaken.) The town name stuck is my brain. I'm a Heinz 57 mutt with possibly a small fraction of Indian blood; the family genealogist has no proof.

Back on topic. Ya both have good taste in bikes. A wee bit longer riding season in SoCal eh?

Yeah, you could say that. Maybe just ever so slightly, I say as I look out at perfect weather over the LA valley.

I am going to remove the carb to give it a good cleaning and figured I might as well change the jets, it is pretty hard starting and slow to warm up. I live at about the same elevation but within a few miles from home the elevation changes are from just above sea level to over 4000ft. I plan to ride (actually my son, not me) the WADBR with it so I would guess elevations are common to about 4000+ft. Do you think it would run too rich at higher elevations, have you ridden yours at this elevation much. I don't want to do anything that makes it louder so I'm going to stay with the stock exhaust and not do any air box modifications.

Thanks

Have ridden the XT225 with jet changes from sea level up to 5,000 ft.
No real issues at that point. If you're riding in Colorado, way up at 10,000 feet, there may be some issues with it running rich.

All done!

Have you had a chance to ride with the sprocket change? Is the difference noticeable?
Also, my friend mentioned he changed his back sprocket on his supermoto...would changing the back sprocket be the same as changing the countershaft sprocket? Say i changed it from 15-45 to 15-43..will it accomplish the same change? Any body know. Hearing this just blew my mid, not really sure why, though.

First Post



I bought a 2004 XT225 with only 238 miles on it at the beginning of October. I took pictures when I got it home, before making any modifications. I've since added larger footpegs and a few other bits; I also have a new rack, Clarke tank, handle bar and Uni filter that I haven't yet had time to install. (I'll post before and after pictures when I get everything on.)

I thought I should read through this entire thread before I posted, and just got caught up. It only took 2 months and 2 weeks!

Thanks to all for the good information in this thread. As I've gone through the thread, I've copied certain posts on recommended upgrades, changes, maintenance, tires, tools, riding locations, etc. to a OneNote notebook for future reference.

Fixed!

Reading through this thread I've noticed that there are a lot of members from Colorado. Or maybe that's just my own confirmation bias.
