no you cant register the 230, you can however buy lowering links for the TTR for around $60.00 and they are easy to fit!
and the XT is not in the same league as the TTR

There was an ADR compliant model released. Not sure when, or how many. (This one was on ebay at some point)

gopro remote mount

as the title suggests I got a new mount for the gopro wifi remote, this should be easier to use than on the wrist

Can you quote yourself? Is it the same as liking your own status on Facebook?
Anyway............... just got myself, sorry I mean I got my wife, a TTR yesterday. Not a huge deal but when I wrote the above I had no real chance of getting one in the near future but I guess some things are ment to be.

I have the 606's on my Open Enduro they work a treat, are easy to get on and off the super purple rims and are cheap

Kick Starter

I have a TTR 250 which starts easily with the electric starter but is extremely difficult to start with the kick starter. Do any of you blokes have any tips on kick starting these things

The ADR kit for the TTR230 is no longer available new. It might still be possible to roll your own lighting kit depending on your state's regulations. They're a great play bike, but the 250 is a fair bit more trail/ADV worthy.

Mine is impossible to start with the bloody kick start, But always starts a treat with the electric leg or a push and jump in 2nd gear if the Battery is flat... dunno why

Sort of good to hear I'm not the only one having trouble, if the kick starter was the only way to start the bike I wouldn't be riding very often (sooner start the mower). I wonder if the gearing between the starter and the engine is to low because when i give it a kick, it seems like I'm only getting a fraction of revolution
