TTR 600

Hey  all,

As much as I love my TTR I am getting the itch for more bikes, or at least something a bit more powerful. Has anyone ever owned a TTR600, how do they compare?

If you were to get a bike that was a bit more wheelyable and had a bit more top-end, what would it be? XR600? XT600? I'm looking for cheap preferably air cooled second hand 4T. The

I'm also really tempted to get the 325 kit for my TTR but am unsure about how complicated it is to fit and whether I'd be up to the task or need some hand-holding!

The last thing I'd want to do is end up with no bike

I ride with a bloke who has a TTR600 belgarda. Looks very similar to the 250, but is a lot heavier, has less suspension travel and is electric start only. We've done some pretty decent tracks on it but he does say it limits him on the steeper tighter and wet stuff. Basically its an almost impossible pig to pick up on any slope if you drop it, so you really have to think first before you tackle stuff, and he's not a little bloke. Plenty of power on the flat stuff, comfortable, and easy to work on air cooled engine. Parts are not all that easy to get though..
Basically he said although he likes it, for the stuff we do he would probably be better off with a DRZ400, or even the TTR250. Got it with 0km on the clock, very cheap and said it was just too good a deal to pass up at the time. Really depends on what type of riding you do I guess.
Cheers
Cam.

Agree good power and fun until you get to the tight or slippery stuff  the extra weight is a bugger

I've had a few xt 600s they are great bikes but not great in thick mud or tight tracks as they are heavy..great fun though traffic though..
Test ride a wr450 if you want something faster and lighter.. or a husaburg 70 degree..

Hey Si,

I had a wr450 for a bit. Think I'm after something in-between a wr450 and a ttr250. Something that is a bit better on the road than the ttr250.

DRZ400??
Reliable but heavy but faster than a ttr250 but not too mad like a wr450...
Pretty good road manners too..

My flatmate has just got a DRZ400S, he's had some trouble with it but as soon as he's got it sorted I'll try and get him to let me have a go on it.. you might be right about it..

TTR 350? Coming on line soon...
The 325 kit wakes the bike up loads, but the 350 is even better.

mossproof: would love to wait for the 350 kit but think I may have to do the 325 for now just due to a tighter budget and being impatient. Eventually will have to do the 350 though for sure!
