HELLO FROM MONTANA USA

I JUST BOUGHT  a 2005 ttr 250, thoroughly neglected  and confused, my goal is to turn it into a legal road bike for dirt road back country trips.  Looking good so far.  Great    forum here, lots of helpful hints and resources to cut to.  Love it.

Hey Mike, I have one of those 2002s also, I'm in Oregon. Love this bike, very little to pass on except that in its stock state its starved for air and a bit restricted in the exhaust, otherwise it just works. And get that burly skid plate from TotallyTTRs, mine has earned its keep.

There was another guy from MT on here a while back, maybe you can get this plated in Montana, your requirements are a lot more sensible than Oregon -- from what I see you might be legal with just a mirror, pegs and horn, not even any blinkers?

So far I have it titled and a license, went blinkers, brake lights, led front and back, all good there. Lots of good ideas and help on this forum, thanks to everybody that posts. Set the valves, 14/44 gearing so far, I will see, I think 14/48 will be better, I'll wait for test runs next spring. Kenda dual sport 450 rear 325 front. Waiting for shock seal head, to service shock and lowr the bike 2" for easier mount/dismount with bags and rack.

Welcome, Mike.

I feel sure you will like this forum - it's got a great wealth of information and advice.

I haven't been very active for a while but I still look at the comments now and then.

Have you any pictures of your bike to show us all?

the bike is stripped right now and with snow on the ground I'm taking my time putting the bike together.   The next step will be making a rack system.   I keep bouncing back and forth between a steel rack or tig welding an aluminum rack.  I am leaning now to steel, keep it simple,   don't over think this,  so I am fabbing up the rack to sit up on the fender and then I will build brackets, then some rack down below on each side to keep my soft saddle bags out of the muffler/wheel etc.  Had to do the same for my KTM 500, worth the effort out on the back roads.

SO........... a couple of pictures of   parts..   No baffle in my muffler when I bought the bike.  LOUD, not good, I  couldn't find a replacement so I ordered the   spark arrestor screen tube for a YZ250f from Yoshimura ( $18 ) off ebay,   machined my self a new aluminum end cap, its quiet, no idea  on power or jetting until spring riding, maye too  restrictive.

 

Wow, those old style narrow foot pegs from the old days, you wouldn't think that would exist all the way to 2005, so this is my version of being able to ride in slippers in comfort.
