I wonder where he got those crash bars... Looks like they could provide a good alternative foot position for longer trips.

I've heard that the timberwolf 250 atv head is a bolt on but no confirmation

Sure looks good
Who makes that headlight set up you have? Been looking for something different.

Hahaha, I know you now! I have a set of your LEDs on my Triumph! I love those things! I swear they are the greatest defense against careless drivers!

How many miles are on it? It seems like a lot of people are having engine problems with their XTs.

I've considered getting one of your fairings. Do you know the power draw of the lights?

I have seen lots of interesting stuff on this thread, but never expected to see a fire vehicle! I wonder if that is what the chief rides, or is that the Chief?

howdy, i have STOCK 1994 XT225. do you know if those leds will work on my bike? i tried replacing the stock headlight with a H4; riding around town the H4 just drained my battery. so when i was stopped, i had to rev up the engine to keep all my lights working. I'm waiting to replace all the bulbs with leds and upgrade the headlight any suggestion. there are so many brands and types of leds, not sure what is what and if any of them will do the job. I'm going for brighter and better/safer.

That was a great article. I love the pic with a huge airtime jump. I wish they would have explained why the shock blew up after they rebuilt it.

From reading some of the tire posts it sounds like sizes aren’t the same from one manufacturer to the other, some posts mention 4.10 for this bike. Front should be Shinko 2.75 right?

Thanks
Any chance you will let me know what you payed for the 06.
I am looking at buying one, and the guy is asking $2200.
It looks clean and has 4600Kilometres on it.
Thanks
