on my last trip.  I was surprised/disappointed by the stability in the sand.  the 250 ttr is a short motorcycle.  I decided to fit a steering damper and lengthen the swingarm (3 cm) at the same time to fit a wrf wheel and its 245 mm disc.

Confident welder!!!
Did you chop a WR swingarm? The chain adjusters are not ttr style.
Nice work!

fork and a wheel 250 WRF 2008 and Ohlins shock purchased during a TTR 250 white that made the race paris dakar (check serial numbers in ohlins France at PFP).  tough off road / good for road and travel

After travelling alone for 5 weeks in Morocco and Mauritania with a TTR.

I have started a work I have been thinking about for long time. 

A friend has given me a frame in bad shape (much better because if I fail I will not have regrets).

 

I want to set up all the back parts from a WRF 2009. Is a long term project (6 months).

 

I will have to redo the exhaust pipe and an aluminum tank. Thinner to fit with the seat.

Well
My plan was to do it all in 6 months.
But I have had several issues: work/travelling and above all a robbery of my material at my workshop.
The insurace finally have paid part of it.
Back to the project.
For now, slowly slowly, I only have bought the pieces for the project.
Included a 2 shock absorbers Ohlins from Gas Gas nearly new that I have adapted to my TTR for the length, hydraulic and the spring.
For now I'm traying it on my TTR and so far perfect.

Impressive ambition. I think you might regret the seat though, especially if the bike is more stable allowing you to sit down more often.
I would love to see some pictures of you and the bike in Mauritania!

Thank you for the compliments.

there will be two ttr 250 the current one will stay like that. can be the ohlin gas shock absorber and the lithium battery instead of the toolbox in a fiberglass case.

2024 and 2023 I traveled alone. difficult to take photos with me on the bike
