Welcome to the forum Lee!  biggrinbiggrin

You have the basis for a nice TTR there. Raids are becoming rarer as time goes by.

Some simple weight-saving mods would be to replace the steel swingarm and linkage with the equivalent aluminium parts from the Open Enduro.

Using the OE shock also gives extra adjustment not available on the Raid shock.

If you are trying to keep costs down then Steve at Totally TTRs has a huge range of used parts in his shop - see https://totallyttrs.com/epages/699105d9-e4cc-4b32-b236-84e72cd67f84.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/699105d9-e4cc-4b32-b236-84e72cd67f84/Categories/Shop/Used_parts

Hello and welcome to the Forum, Lee.

You will appreciate that the TTR will be nowhere near as fast on the road as the TL100 in the background.

It will be much faster on the rough lanes though!!!

Hey Lee and welcome.

There are a few of us TTR fanatics in Northants.

I'm over Kettering way and have a Raid and a Bluey, there's also Dan and Jordan over Rushden way who both have TTR's

Don't grind the tab of, you will need it later to do it back up. You should be able to knock it through from the other side.

Hope that helps and good luck.

Steve
