FYI, the Immix skidplate is actually made by Richochet Offroad (www.utahsportcycle.com). Not sure which is cheaper after shipping, just throwing it out there.

I have one, it's a nice piece, in my opinion.

Not mine - the wife's. The pic is her watching me pump up my front tire, she is supervising. The little 250 is a tractor. I wish I had pics of us doing a nasty hill climb- two up. It just chugged along, very impressive machine !

New Sprockets

Can someone provide a link to find cheap (steel) sprockets for the XT250?

I am looking to either go down one tooth in the front, if there are no issues with rubbing the swingarm too badly by doing this.

Or go up two or three teeth in the rear. I want a little better offroad gearing (easier wheelies!), but dont want to give up too much top end on the road...

Can yall recommend something for me?

Thanks!

What bags is she sporting on her XT250? I'm ready to start outfitting mine but don't know where to start! Anyone have any leads on larger fuel tanks yet?

What other farkles are working well for you all?

Nothing on a tank yet. I doubt there will be one anytime soon, the XT225 was out for almost 20 years before Clarke made one. That said, I lined up a 225 and a 250 in photoshop and I THINK that the 225 tank can be made to work. The side covers would need to be cut back some on the front edge, and some sort of adapter would need to be fitted on the front of the tank/frame, but I think it could be done. I might try it later this year, but will probably focus on suspension first.

I don't remember if I'm allowed to do this, but just delete my post and accept my apologies if not, but I just wanted to let you guys know that I have a skidplate for sale. It's this one:

http://www.utahsportcycle.com/store/page271.html

Just PM me for details if you're interested.

My wife has a 2009 XT250 which she loves. Has seen plenty of off-road use as well as commuting duties. So far it has suffered 2 broken clutch levers through riders (not her) dropping it in the bush. Has anyone here put Bark Busters (original or otherwise) on their XTs? Our local Yamaha dealer thought that the front indicators might get in the way when doing tight turns.

I have Acerbis Rallye II's on my bike, absolutely no clearance issues at all. The work fine, but I've had to readjust them a few times do to dropping the bike and apparently not having the bolts cranked down enough. They work fine now. I've still bent 2-3 levers with them in place, even with the assemblies loosened enough that lever bracket should have just rotated upward. I will probably get "unbreakable" levers eventually. I might even just ditch the guards at that point (but probably not).



Here is my XT from today. Was getting a new phototag for the local game:

Here's some muddy photos. Not just mud, but clay! Rider is our 10 year old daughter, showing how versatile these bikes are!
