Hello from Germany
Permalink  
 


Hello TTR community. I pick up a 1999 TT-R 250 from the Netherlands Yesterday and hope / guess it will provide us a lot of fun over the next years smile

I add a picture from the Shop, new pics will follow soon, we start to make her ready now to be street legal here in Germany. Looking forward to good hints in this group.

Welcome to the forum Olaf!
Nice looking bike, interesting upsidedown forks - YZ conversion?
Have fun!

Glad you found the forum Olaf I have your parts you ordered here and will wait for your instruction. As for the lowering link, normally owners would drop the front forks through the yolk a little bit, to balance the bike up. Can you do this with the upside down forks ?

Always happy to help.

Steve

Thanks for the warm welcome.

@mossproof: it is fork, rim and breaks from a WR250f 2002 (thats what the previous owner told me). From our first little test rides we was all impressed how super easy and smooth it works (while we have no idea how it run with the original fork.

@Steve: yes we can lower the USD fork also a little bit. Not that much then a regular one but oner or two centimeter will work. Soon we wil lsee how it feels with lowering link and that USD fork, all over I dont find any good information about the 1999 TT-R fork compared to the 2002 WR250F fork. If someone know about the diefference in lenght of both, please tell me.
The order should be complete now and you can ship it. If you think I miss something super important, just let me know.

All over we are excited how she will perform in relation to the XR400R we already use. So far I realy like how easy this bike is to ride. Also we made some pics yesterday which I add here. A nice Sunday to all of you!

 Welcome to the TTR forum, I also had a XR400RC before the TTR & I can confirm the TTR is much easier to ride, handles better & stops quicker.

Cheers Terry
