Huh? You got between 149 to 160 mpg or you didnt fill it up?
XT225 Fuel tank capacity
8.8L (2.32 US gallons) (1.94 Imp. gal)
Fuel reserve amount 2.0 L (.053 US gallons) (0.44 Imp. gal)
2.32 -.28 .053 = 1.510 gal.

Welcome to the three figures club! I was excited my first time as well. Normally I get 90 +/- 5 mpg.

Sprocket stud removal?

Did Yamaha use thread lock compound on the studs holding the sprocket to the hub? (pix here)

It needs to be uncorked to go faster loaded. Exhaust, intake and jetting.

I had done the Z-1 mod, and opened up the pilot jet setting, but never messed with the intake. In its present condition it will out run my brother's stock XT225 everytime. Maybe I'm spoiled on my FZ-1, but I can't see it cruising comfortably at 60mph with a 255# load.

ticking

so today, i had my bike up on the stand cleaning the chain. after a good cleaning and lube, i started her up and worked the throttle a little to help get back to operating temp. I had just rode around town apprx 5-10 miles. anyways, i put her in first and worked the throttle just a little, when i heard a ticking noise. so with the bike in idle, i could hear the noise. it sounds to me, the noise from a car when the lifters are nocking. i could not isolate the sound, in fear of hurting my little bike, so i shut it off and got it down from the stand and parked it. has anyone had a similar situation or sound? also is it ok to ride it to the shop and have a mechanic check her out?

In first gear, back wheel probably rotating. I'm not surprised. What's it sound like off the 'stand' & in neutral?

If you are able, and have the specs, adjusting the valve gap is relatively easy. Google "xt 225 valve clearance" and there is a great tutorial on the other website.

Hope you can find it. Met a !#$%&! Suzuki DR200 that swallowed one. Its engine locked up & the cam chain & remains of the nut were found in the bottom of the case. Never found out if the valves hit the piston. May be a good idea to look in to where the cam chain runs.

I am pretty sure that the way the head is designed, the nut would have no way to work it's way over to the cam chain. I think if you take both valve covers off, and fish about with a small magnet, you might get lucky.
