Hi! I recently bought a 2006 TTR250 Supermoto, and just wanted to post it up in the forum. 

IMAG0518.jpg

IMAG0521.jpg

It had 4,500kms when I bought it, 6000 now.

The person I bought it off had it in storage for 6 months, and so it ran quite bad but all it needed was a carby clean, runs great now.

I think he said that the motard wheels were KTM Behr wheels, in case anyone wanted to know.

Its not the best looking TTR at the moment, particularly because I hate the all blue look with no graphics.

Only thing i've done so far is cut the fender to suit the motard look, but heres a list of things that I am planning to buy when I can afford it ! biggrin

- Graphics Kit & Seat Cover - http://www.ebay.com/itm/2000-2012-YAMAHA-TTR-250-Graphics-Kit-Seat-Cover-Motocross-Graphics-Enjoy-/381429550746?hash=item58cef90e9a&nma=true&si=jmn9SpKhDTdGe4NxZR6BnRxCiK4%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

- FMF Powercore 4

- New header pipe, as you can see its rusty as hell right now. Looking at either getting this polished stock one - https://totallyttrs.com/epages/699105d9-e4cc-4b32-b236-84e72cd67f84.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/699105d9-e4cc-4b32-b236-84e72cd67f84/Products/TTR-0397 or this one - https://totallyttrs.com/epages/699105d9-e4cc-4b32-b236-84e72cd67f84.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/699105d9-e4cc-4b32-b236-84e72cd67f84/Products/TTR-0177

- New small indicators, these stock massive ones look terrible in my opinion

- MX Style Rear Fender with a nice tail tidy

- And I would also love to get rid of the stock forks and get Upside Down Forks, but thats probably not gonna end up happening.

- Also clean up the rust on the frame

If anyone is selling any of these or know someone/place who is then let me know!

 

P.S This thing is great to wheelie 

 

Cheers,

Charles

That doesn't look too bad as it is, Charles.

Oh - and welcome to the forum.

Instead of buying a brand new header pipe why don't you clean and shine the one you have ?  confuse

All it requires is the persistent application of wet & dry ranging from coarse to fine,  PLENTY of elbow grease, then finishing off with something like SolvolAutosol.

PS - judging by the sun and foliage I guess you're not based in the UK?

Thanks!

I might just end up doing that, but still definitely want to look into getting that Shorty Stainless Steel one in the future

And no, from Sydney, Australia smile

Welcome to the forum Charles. I don't think there's many SuMo owners on here. The standard ttr handles twisties pretty well so your setup must be brilliant. I've just bought a (rare) e-start XR400 motard in need of some love. Always good to have a rolling project to keep your mind occupied!
Ride safe,
Simon.

Nice super-retard! Sorry that's what my mates and I call them biggrin Looks like it'd be a blast. 

 

And agree - those shiny shorter headers are pretty sweet. Instead of an updside down front end, try a set of neoprene fork savers.  I have the viper ones from evil bay and they definitely smarten up the look wink

 These are the ones I have.

Take off your ugly fork gaiters and chuck these on. They look way better and function well too. I've taken them off after some dirty rides and much less crap gets under them than the bellows style gaiters
