ttr and drz

I have just sold my dr650 and I'm looking at buying a ttr250 or drz400e. The dr650 was to heavy for trail riding. Some of my friends with drzs say that the ttr might be a bit under powered. I assume the ttr will handle much better. Anyone have experience with the drz and ttr. Appreciate any advice.

I have both in my shed if you want to try them.....

Truth be told, I love the simplicity of the TTR, and I was probably faster on it than the DRZ. But I do like the extra power of the DRZ in the desert.

I had a XR400R for over 6yrs, great bike & good power delivery, the XR400 & DRZ400 are very close in performance so I can give you a few pointers.
The XR was always a battle keeping the wheel spin under control, heavy bike as well.
The TTR does lack a little power but in saying that don't need to worry about wheel spin, just point it & go.
If you check out my videos the performance between to 2 is not that great until you hit a hill or head wind, then you feel it.

I test rode my mates TTR & was happy enough to put the money down on a new TTR, while up in the Flinders for the last 2 years my mates TTR went every where the XR400 went. Anyhow best to ride one 1st

Cheers Terry

I sold my fully kitted out DR 650 when the latest bub came along so took ownership of the wifes TTR and its been a blast riding it, sure on the long run you miss the power but in the tricky stuff it lights up your face and so easy to maintain.
Can carry a load and hey it's a 250.

I picked this up today and must say that it's not to loud.





Dave,here's the removable baffle that came with it.With the baffle in it's pretty quiet.



This a baffle out of another Staintune I have.



If yours did'nt come with the baffle I'll bring mine down and try it out on your pipe.

Cheers
A2
