Hi - thanks for the add ! Just joined up as I have bought a TTR250 a couple of days ago - 2007 model. First job will be to change the tyres and reduce the height a bit as I am a bit short in the leg for this bike ! Member of the mid Wales TRF and normally ride old Yamaha XT500's, but have decided they are not up to the job (much like the rider !!)

Welcome to the TTR site, Dick.

To reduce height in the TTR it's usual to get a lowering link fitted to the rear suspension links rather than letting air out of the tyres. biggrinbiggrin

Powys is reported to be a nice area (never been myself), what are the trails and off road riding like? confuse

Welcome to the forum Dick! I hope you can find (or get) any help that you need with your TTR wink

I have ridden the Powys Enduro a few times and you have some fantastic lanes in your area - some extremely challenging biggrinbiggrin

Thanks for the comments guys. Yes, the lanes up here in Wales are great but it will be a wee while before I get back on a bike as did my ankle in. Martyn - yes I got the lowering link the other day and went to fit it yesterday. Took off the two rubber covers on the swinging arm, removed the 19mm (I think) bolt and then tried to get the long bolt out by pushing shoving and belting it from the right to push it out the left side but no joy so far. If anyone has any tips then let me know !

 Try this posting, it has some helpful hints on a stiff link:- CLICKY LINK

May be helpful, if not give another shout.

Thanks Martyn for that ! I rummaged around and had found that ink which was very useful. Some large heat and a lump hammer pus a drift and out she came....now to get cracking on replacing it with the longer link for my short legs !
