Here’s my ttr250 

it’s not going to look brand new just to make it a good usable bike that I’m not going to be afraid to use, here’s a couple pics

so far 

frames been sandblasted and powdercoated black

head stock greased and re assembled 

swinging arm grease and put on 

next job is to put new top and bottom bearings in the rear shock

Hey Martin, I'm really interested in this because at some point I'd like to take mine to pieces to get the frame powder coated.

Does anyone know if there are any tutorials or videos or anything about how to do this, or would the service/owner manuals be the best reference for a task like this?

Cheers,

One tip I’ve seen on here before powder coating is to mask up frame numbers before hand other wise you will not be able to see them like mine 🤭 alway learn something new after you have done the job, does any one no how to make them re appear???
Not shore about any guidance videos I’ve only just joined the group I’m shore there are and I’m shore someone will point you in the right direction 👍

It all starts to make sense when the engine's back in!

I am at the same point and have the same dilemma, got carried away on the strip down and ended up taking it back to a bare frame and staying. I a now putting it back together and realised I didn’t take enough photos to identify the routing or where everything goes!

I have loads of brackets and clips that could go anywhere, need to clean up the loom and hoping once that on it will help identify the positions better, however, some bits I took off after the engine was out, not sure on access if I put it back in beforehand?

If you find anything useful can you let me know?

Any of these photos help?  I have printed these two and laminated them to use in frame-up rebuilds.

This photo shows the wires, terminals and clips around the shock reservoir:

These photos show how I fit the loom and clips before fitting the swingarm and mill.

After fitting swingarm:

There is quite a good routing diagram in the workshop manual - see https://estore-sslserver.eu/totallyttrs.com/epages/699105d9-e4cc-4b32-b236-84e72cd67f84.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/699105d9-e4cc-4b32-b236-84e72cd67f84/Products/TTR-0034

There might also be helpful photos if you look at some of the restoration threads on here.

If you are still stuck, let us know specifically which cable/connectors and I am sure we can help!

Brian

Dale I feel your pain I brought my bike in a pile of bits so I’m guessing everything but it all seems to be going back together ok so far, hopefully the pictures that Brian has put up help you as well,

Thanks Brian for the pictures they are a grate help and thanks for the service manual link I have downloaded it and currently printing it off.
Also like to thank Steve for the manual and helping me sort it out I’m rubbish with computers but I have got it sorted 👍👍👍

Brian you are a legend! Photos are fantastic, I have the Haynes manual in the garage which hasn’t been much help but remembered I had purchased the manual already from Totally TTRs, (must print it out for garage use!) it’s a bit better but it as comprehensive as the photos :)
