Tl250

I bought a 75 TL250 as a starter bike, I mainly just putt around yard slow now. Main question I've got now is the 250 vibrates so much my noise itches. Anyone have experience with this bike, is this typical or do I have a serious engine problem. Thanks

Send it to me, I`ll fix it in a year or two.




















Really I would check all the motor mounts first, the motor does not vibrate.

It should not vibrate that much. Check engine mount bolts and nuts. If all tight you've probably got some problems inside, like worn main bearings. Does it make much mechanical noise when running?

Have fun with the starter, and don't throw a leg over a nice modern bike. The extreme yumminess will really mess with your head

Before my TL moved to another, my arms used to ache;
and that was just moving it around the garage.

They do tend to whirr and knock as they get older, but not vibrate. Double check your engine mounts and frame. I've seen some cracks around the swing arm bolt /rear engine mount.

They are the Blue Star Line ocean liners of trial bikes. Think Titanic. And again, I must reinforce what has been said before ... don't throw a leg over a 4RT. The extreme yumminess of a fuel injected four stroke that weighs so much less will really mess with your head.
