Can you tell me what your jetting setup is?
Thanks!
I think mine is 42.5 small jet and 122.5 main. I might drop down to 120 main but my riding conditions are on the extreme side of dry and high heat.

Thanks, I will order them this week.

Hey experts, what is a 2005 XT225 with ~ 4500 miles on it worth?

When I go look at it, any know trouble spots I should have a close look at?

And like I mentioned, these have held up great to the miles. It comes with several pieces to raise the height to get you to the height you want. Its a simple design, made out of aluminum.... not like its so complicated to charge what $80+ that TT charges? outrageous.

Also, Tusk has ATV tank panniers that work well. I had a couple nylon straps sewed on to hold the bike in place. I paid $12 for mine on sale, put $2 in straps and had my mother sew them on.

They have 2000 miles on them and they are still together.

I looked through the thread, but didn't see anything...

Have any of you done anything to improve the suspension? Swapped forks, cartridge emulators, rear shock, etc.?

Also, I found a company doing big-bore kits for the TTR 225.... anyone have this in their XT? I feel a major project coming on..... Rally Serow anyone?

Bonnie is starting to complain about the power and suspension. Maybe she's ready for some upgrades.

Hayduke, at xt225.com, some people have had good luck installing a Mikuni pumper carb, as well as tuning the suspension. FWIW, the suspension is a known weak point of the little tank. It's meant more for tractoring than bombing through stuff.

I would probably look at different carburetion before a big bore kit if it doesn't actually need an overhaul because I think there's a lot of ponies to be found by increasing it's ability to breathe.

Also, have you done the Z-1 exhaust mod?
