1998? TTR 250 OE NOW SOLD :-)
Permalink  
 


So, I did advertise this back in 2017, was rubbish at actually monitoring replies and never actually sold it no. I will try harder this time

 

It has sat in my barn ever since waiting for me to get around to selling it. I did buy (but not fit)a complete kickstart kit for it from someone on this forum, and that comes with it (cost me 250 quid if iRC).

 

MOT is now out, and I haven't got around to MOTing it yet, but will any day now. The original add is here(edited to bump the price by 100 quid to cover the kickstart kit):-

 

OK, having spent loads of cash on my TTR and converting it to supermoto to use for getting to my fire station when I'm called out (retained fire fighter), I've decided that I'd probably kill myself trying to overtake a pensioner down the lanes between home and the station no

So it's just been sat in the barn waiting to be put back on the road, and I don't use it at all. In fact, since I bought it, I've only ridden it twicecry

V5c says it was first registered in 1998, and first registered in the UK in 2007.

So, it has

 

New rear link kit from totally TTRs with all new bushes

Replacement (good) rear shock

New shock bushes

New chain and both sprockets

Oil and filter change

Kawasaki headlight unit with a glass headlight and an H4 night breaker

Longer front brake pipe, and refurbished front caliper (again from totally, in fact most of the stuff came from totally)

LED indicators

Modified YZF silencer

WR 125 wheels with Excel rims. Front rebuilt onto a TTR hub to get the correct disk and spacings, Virtually new Conti Trail attack tyres

12oclockLabs SpeedoDRD to convert speedo to MPH (speed needs calibrating)

If I get the asking price it will also come with the original purple wheels in good nick with legal tyres, original headlamp unit (not that you'd want to fit it), and original indicators, plus a Brembo front brake set up (lever, Master cylinder and caliper) all connected up, which I was going to modify and try to fit. Plus the kickstart kit.

 It has MOT until 20 sept 2018. the MOT I got with it (which ran out in January 2015 which shows how long it is since it was last ridden) had an advisory on it for "mileage not displayed" but in mileage history the last reading was 14249 in 2012. The milometer currently reads 26780 km (as shown in the picture and on the current MOT)which equates to about 16700 miles, so I suspect that the 14249 is miles not Km although it doesn't say that on the MOT.

Bad bits

When I stripped it down to fit the new rear end, I wire brushed the frame and painted it in black hammerite, and it really wants completely stripping and re-painting properly.

there is an off side passnger footpeg, but I had to butcher the bolt to get it off when I painted the frame

If I was keeping it, I'd replace the rear spokes with some new ones (WR wheel that is) as they are pretty nasty compared to the new ones in the front wheel.

The spoke lines in the re-built front wheel aren't perfect due to the TTR hub being a slightly different size to the WR hub, but it doesn't affect the wheel, and you probably wouldn't have noticed straight away if I hadn't mentioned it.

If you wanted the rear wheel re-building with new spokes I'd do it for you for the cost of the spokes and 25 quid to cover my time, as I do build wheels for a local shop anyway.

The SpeedoDRD needs calibrating as I said before. (the instructions will come with it)

Carb sometimes jams and floods, so it probably needs a clean.

That's about it, so I'm looking for 1300 quid. If you want more photos, or want to look at it, or talk, let me know on here. I'm not in a massive rush to sell, as it's not in my way or anything, but it would be good for someone who would use it to have it.

So here is the speedo picture. The little box below it is a rev counter/hrs run meter, which I fitted. revs work fine too smile.gif

It will come with the original purple wheels, in good nick with legal tyres, the original headlight assembly, and the kickstart kit, but only if I get the asking price.

 Sorry Steve, no idea cry, I just surfed the bay of Es and found it. I'd imagine it was a small 125/175 road machine. Pseudo race type of thing.

 Yes, that is them, sorry about the spelling, no "c"

 

They do sell trials parts, having taken over Sammy Miller's sales arm last year, but they also do parts for classic bikes, and sell them all over the world. That  includes building up wheels for customers, my job smile

There web site is:-
