Does the Clarke tank bolt right up with no mods?

Pretty much. You do lose the plastic wing/grille things on the stock tank, but the Clarke tank takes up that space. You have to put some more foam over the top frame tube, but it comes with the tank. I have 2, one blue and one black. Using the blue one, but keeping the other. I've had 2 stock Honda XR plastic tanks destroyed by ethanol. Hope this doesn't happen to the Clarke tank.

UNI air filter

So i got a UNI filter for my "new" '02 XT225 and went to install it and noticed the wire mesh plate that comes stock in the airbox on these is missing. Is this a problem? Anone running thier UNI without the mesh?

P.S. Im in love with my new bike! Pics and proper intro soon to come

Mine is pushed into the box so it's not sealed anymore. I tried to take it all apart to fix it, but it just opened up a whole can of worms.

I'd replace the part. It probably wouldn't cost much. Riding in a desert I'd be especially concerned about the air filter being perfect & maintained very often. Sand is silica, and is very abrasive in an engine.

Well, heres my '02 XT225 project. I spent alot of time lurking and learning before this purchase, and i thank you all for the info! I've had several bikes in the past and currently but this is my first "dirt" bike. I've already had so much fun working on it and riding! Looking forward to many great adventures with this little machine :).

Clean Bike!

Holy Crap Rextec! It looks like you replaced the Phillips style screws holding the right side engine case. That is CLEAN!
As a side note, has anybody changed their exhaust out? I want to treat and paint mine (after a harsh winter with some road salt making rust spots on it.) how difficult is it to get it sealed again? I'm looking at taking it apart just past the stainless steel header.

The later bikes didn't use the phillips screws.

The exhaust comes off and goes back easily, you *may* need to replace the donut gasket at the connection

Thank you! I went through every inch of this bike, i like to get well acquainted with my machinery :P. And yes, the engine case bolts are stock on this one. Now time to get her dirty!!!!
