Found its way back home..

Reunited with an old friend, today. Back in the Spring of 2000, I bought an SV 650 new off the showroom floor here in town. While it wasn't the best looking, or most high performance bike I'd owned,...

xt225 beiing weird

Today, I went for a short ride on the backroads on my XT.--30 miles or so-- gone about an hour with a stop for a smoke at a covered bridge. About a mile from home, the bike lost power, and would not...

Something else to consider is Life Insurance. If someone you care about will suffer financially as a result of the loss of your income, then insure yourself, and name them as beneficiary. The money...

Motorcycle boots-- as opposed to the steel-toe work boots I was wearing-- would have prevented the ruptured Achilles tendon I am currently enjoying. Another month or so, and I get to start learning...

I suck at trail riding!

I was planning on posting about my little mishap on Saturday and posting a few pics of the trails around my field and in the woods down by the creek. My brother-in-law and nephew were visiting from...

I don't know about that, Plug. I stand 5'3" and have about a 25" inseam. I'm on my toes on my father-in-law's Sportster. My daughter (soon to turn 18, and thus be free of parental constraint) is only...

I'll try running on reserve. I may also put an inline fuel filter on it--cheap and easy. I know that the tank has rust in it-- came that way from the P.O. -- who said he bought it that way 10 years...

Got a question for the carb gurus

I picked up a '94 xt225 a couple weeks ago. Been having fun riding trails and running around town, but... the bike is surging at steady throttle upper midrange rpms. In other words, idle is fine;...

I also owned one for about 3 years-- mine was a black '91 with ABS. The built-in rear storage would carry a carton of smokes on one side and a six pack on the other. The soft luggage, while not...

Thanks! I think it'll be a lot of fun when I get it sorted out. I do have to remember that it's not my ZX6, though-- went to stop at the end of my driveway before pulling out onto road... grabbed...

Gonna be more of a job than I hoped-- right fork seal is definitely blown. Just how difficult is it for a total idiot (me) to change the seals?

Brought it home

Brought the bike home today. It definitely has some issues. The chain isn't as bad as I thought, so I think I'll keep while I'm getting used to the bike.
There are some carb problems, though. The...

I think I will-- bike has a lot of potential. I told them to hold it for a day while I think about it. I haven't decided whether to trailer it or just ride it home. 70 miles is a long way to run on...

Found an older XT225

Howdy all. I've been lurking here for awhile. Read (and re-read) this entire thread and a couple of others, trying to decide on jumping into the small d/s pool.
I went to look at a '95 xt today....
