Performance Upgrades To A 2004 TTR 250
Permalink  
 


Forgot to say "Welcome" Anthony!

Ah yes, a 325 kit - yep - TTR perfection biggrinbiggrinbiggrinbiggrin

How could I have forgotten that Martyn confuse

That said, I am running a 280 kit in my project bike and, now I have sorted out the misfire, it is running like a dream. Can't wait to get it fully run in and see what it will do flat out. wink 

Seems to be a nice bit of torque but don't know yet about the top end.

I am running the shorty header pipe and the Motad silencer which should help a bit as well.

Put a 1200 Suzuki Bandit engine unit into it. biggrin

Seriously, though, why? confuse

Would it not have been better to buy a faster bike rather than a customized TTR?

Sorry - I was a tad facetious in my reply. hmm

Another mod. (after uncorking as above) would be to fit a big bore kit.

This CLICKY LINKY will take you there. aww

TTRFAN thanks for the link it realy helped, i have another question though, how much difference would an fmf backend do? oh and would a "power bomb"in the front end work on this bike? also what would i have to change on the bike to suite a racing cdi?

Gas flowing on its own might improve things, particuarly smoothing out any step between the head and inlet manifold.

I have not managed to get any feedback from a TTR owner who has fitted hot cams - see http://ttr250.activeboard.com/t47459573/after-market-camshafts-and-ss-valves/

A sure way to increase the power of a 4T is to increase the compression ratio but there is no gain without pain and my guess is that all mods will decrease reliability to one extent or another.

A TTR250 won various national enduro championships in Australia. If you are really keen and have a good budget then it might be worth trying to make contact with the race team mechanic/tuner.

TTRFAN thanks for the info.. I am a lil heasitent when de-creasing reliability. How much more power would i get if i put a fmf tail on it? Its 3k for one so its a huge chunk out of my budget and if the cash could be spent on "higher performing" parts im going to leave the standard tail on

Sorry but I don't have any more info than is on the site. Best email them direct with any queries.  

I have never used anything other than standard camshafts and haven't looked at using any aftermarket ones so really am not going to be able to help you much on this - sorry.

Brian
