I bought a new TTR a few months ago, just hold it flat & keep changing gears seems to work.
Good ride, nice brakes, nice gearbox & not as busy at 100kmph as my XR400 was.

A little more power would be nice but I can learn to live with it & at my age it's time to slow down anyhow.



Cheers Terry

Allegedly they offer good service http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...=172883&page=3

In all seriousness, if we get together a few people and send a group request for a quieter baffle, what do you think our chances are? Back in the 90's they would provide a closed end narrower internal dameter baffle that barely affected power yet made them reasonably quiet. Unfortunately this seems too difficult now......

Having 2 bikes with Staintunes already I expected it not to be as loud, I do run the baffle. Staintune have listed it at 94db @ 3500rpm & meets the adr regs. In fact I have the sticker to prove it.

It's about the same as my XR400 was with a standard exhaust, a little less noise would be good but it does scare the skippys out of the way.

On some of my later videos you should be able to hear the bike (not too loud on the video)

BTW I also have video from my mates TTR as well, might post them up as well. Should keep the thread alive !!!

Cheers Terry

Ttr

Can you guys post up a pic of what the baffle is like on the current batch of Staintunes? I have a spare one from my old TTR sitting in the shed (which coincidently fits the DRZ400). I'd like to see if it's any different to what you have.

I found that it was only rediculous-loud with the baffle out.... and I only ever had it out to race Finke as I gained 1hp by removing it (On a bike that is doccumented to have 16hp standard, that's a bit.)


It was Tony Kirby's writings in Sidetrack that made me make the move from the TTR600 back to a TTR250. I loved my little TTR, and didn't regret the change at all. It took me a lot of places, and surprised a lot of people. Working the suspension is probably the best thing you can do to the bike... I also had a Ballards 'high' seat foam added. It's not that I'm tall (5'10"), I just liked the change in ergos, along with the AFAM Flex bars & MSC steering damper the bike was very comfortable and predictable. I did play with the motor a bit as well (after I stuffed up & caused some top end drama) A mild port & polish, 2nd oversize high comp piston, coupled with the pipe put it at just on 30hp.

24 Hour Reliability Trial, 2006.



The TTR on the left is still sitting in my shed- he rides it once a year (But I ride it a lot more than that around home )

I have always loved what those white and Purple TTRs looked like. Seeing them both side by side has just confirmed that. Must be the tank and headlight shape.

Who are you using to upgrade the suspsion, and who did you use?

I used a local suspension whiz for the TTR, but he no longer does it. All I can remember is that gold valves went into the forks, and the shim stacks and oil weight/height changed on both ends....... made a hell of a difference.

Now I use Warren Smart (Multiple Hattah Desert Race winner) and I'm extremely happy with his work.
