Hi from North East UK
Permalink  
 


New member here and someone who has been looking for a dual purpose bike for a while but until recently didn't even know the TTR existed (sorry). 

 

I'm from NE UK (near Darlington) and recently picked up a blue TTR250 which is looking like a nice little project, low miles, some spares, a leaky carb and pretty poor front brake (both of which will be getting looked at asap). Bike rides great and I can see it being a lot of fun this summer as it's only going to be used for commuting with a bit of green laning. 

 

Maybe see some of you out on the lanes at some point aww.

Welcome to the forum Iain!
Plenty of info on carb rebuilds in the carb, repairs and maintenance stickies sections.
Some lovely trails around you, some more technical than others!
Enjoy!

Welcome to TTR land Iain.

Darlo is a smashing town. I'm from Yorkshire but spent most of my life in Tanfield, close to Stanley.

I became an honourary member of the DurSoc and went on many runs between Scotland and Hull, west coast and east.

For my sins I now live in Devon but it's warmer by two overcoats down here.

I can honestly say that TTRs make smashing trail riding bikes and are still very capable with their electric legs, six gears and good ground clearance.

Enjoy the one you have.

Martyn

Thanks all, finally up and running this week (with a bit of help from the shop, thank you Steve 😉). Bottom of the carb has had new o-rings, seal, jets and diaphragm replaced. Front brake has also had a bit of a refurb too. It's currently running 13/47 sprockets but I'm thinking of changing these for a slightly more comfortable dual carriageway speed (14/47 or 14/44 maybe).

Set up the carb with 50 pilot and I think 142 or 147 main (couldn't read clearly) with pilot screw 2 turns out, twin air filter (snorkel still present) and dominator end can. It starts up almost immediately with a little choke from cold but the popping on the overrun seems a bit excessive so this is young to be the next job after I fit the new tyres, current rubber is way too dirt orientated for me and 65mph speed wobbles are an experience haha.

Anyway tanks for the welcome.
