Shinko 244 is a great tire. It's what I have on my DR350 & what I would put on a TT if I had one
Hello people! Unless a TT250 Bike pops up for sale used before this summer, I will be getting one new.
What does everyone recommend I get with it? I don't want to go crazy. The stock tires should be fine for general purpose until my skills enhance right?
handguards and aluminum mounting rack were the two I was thinking (and possibly the $110 top locking case)
Buy a new one and put Wolfman e12 on it. The motorcycles are more capable then anticipated and just ride it.
Ah, I was also thinking the bags would work. They sure are expensive. Can you vouch for the quality of the wolfman products?
Wolfman bags are very high quality. I had a set on a G650GS and was happy with them. As for getting a used TT250, unless that used bike was within driving distance you won't save enough buying used to offset the shipping cost and loss of the 1 year warranty. Let's face it, the bike @ $2195 cannot depreciate all that much and shipping may well set you back $500.
Wolfman Products are top notch! Pictures are E12's on my DR350. Not pictured is a dry duffel that mounts atop them.
I just sold mine last night. Kinda bummed about it but oh well.
Get tires. The tires that come with the bike are garbage. With better tires, gearing and suspension. This bike will anything and everything if you're ballsy enough lol.
Thanks for all the responses! I'll definitely get some sort of wolfman bag for the bike but I am debating which best fits my needs. I am still getting handguards, and am debating on the rear rack. As far as tires and gearing goes, I'd like to see what I get to start off with at first. I don't plan on taking the i5 with it much, more highway stuff on the way to trails and campgrounds. I'm sure I'll have a better idea of what I want with it once I get around a bit with it.
I am also debating on what institution to finance with (US Bank versus CSC's offered loan). Hopefully US Bank takes a 720+ credit score with arms wide open
I like the stock tires. My bike might be for sale, I am at my limit, and another bike is calling me. One has to go...
What's your location?
San Diego, but I am going to somehow get it to Redding CA. So depending on the used price I can afford to ship it up there.
How's these little guys holding up? I'm looking to purchase one to do some commuting around town but make it more geared towards dirt. Can anyone give me pros and cons and advice? Thanks
I don't have one but my dad picked one up this past summer and has about 1000 miles (only on dirt) and it's not had any issues. Super easy bike to work on. I've got an RX3 with 7000 miles and other than some engine ticking which I think may be an exhaust gasket it's doing fine. It completed a 4000 mile round trip this past summer. CSC has great customer service and parts support so I wouldn't stress about picking one up.
runs better then any motorcycle I have owned
its a full size motorcycle
parts are incredibly inexpensive
no problems at the DMV
handles just fine on the street
nice safe lighting
good air box
nothing has come loose on mine in over 1500 miles
heavy for a 250
fuel line and filter look wimpy
coach work is kinda weak (side panels etc)
60mph top speed
Just out of the crate the motor will struggle and feel anemic but wakes up after 500 miles or so.
Suspension is built to a price point
poor quality chain adjusters and swing arm
original chain is no good
final drive gearing is way to short for normal use as delivered
the clutch gets grabby and noisy when hot
lots of funny noises from the motor that is “normal” for this brand
not much “hooligan” in this motorcycle
not an AJP PR4 Extreme!
Thanks guys!! Sounds like a good fun bike!!
Hey all, new rider here. Looks like I've got fork oil leaking out of the top of my right fork. Still breaking in bike, 75 miles on it. Any thoughts on correcting?
f I recall correctly, there were a few instances of the adjustment mechanism causing the leak. I also seem to recall that CSC took care of the issue for each of those owners. Your first step should be to contact CSC for help.
Thank you much!
had the leak on the left fork top. CSC sent me a whole top plug w/adjuster under warranty
Too many bikes. My 2016 TT250 is for sale. Arlington, Virginia.
