No one size fits all

With the differences between new trials riders one size is unlikely to fit all, especially when one size = 125. People sure seem to have lots of passion about what new people that they don't know...

My son's TTR125 ran like crap stock and was really hard to start until I rejetted it. Now it's good enough but not perfect. The stock carb isn't the greatest either. They seem to clog up really...

I'm 6'2" and 215 lbs and picked up an EC200. I put on a tall guts seat and 1" bar risers and still found it a bit small. So I'm selling it to a friend that is a bit smaller than me. He loves it. ...

TTR125

They are lots of fun, durable, not too fast and easy to re-sell when he outgrows it - which will be soon. My son has made lots of progress on his.

I think trials riding may be in the same league as surfing for difficulty, but probably not for fitness (if you surf tougher waves). I surf and ride - but I ride more in the dirt than on the street....

New ATK605 owner
