A little TOO clean!
Too many toys & not enough riding!!
I do kinda go overboard on the detailing (but I ride 'em too!) My '82 GS750E:
I have/have had many super-clean rides. I could show you many more, but that would be bragging
Well I very rarely wash a bike. I wash them once, very thoroughly, then I just make sure to spend ten minutes wiping them down with damp paper towels after every ride. Other than that, I wax them with Nu Finish a couple of times a year, and I go through lots of Q-tips.
Beauty. With those handle bars & risers, it looks all-day comfortable too.
Traveling from Mexico city, to Miami Florida, and then back to the South... To Argentina on a Bajaj Pulsar 220cc
I am now near Houston.
I think Earth X is a better deal with the balancing circuitry built in.
I have asked this question in a couple of other threads but no response. So I was looking at the South American Yamaha site today and was ogling the XTZ-250 "Lander" and the XTZ-250 "Tenere" (same guts different looks) and realized they use the same air cooled 250cc engine as the XT-250. However it appears that these bikes have oil coolers (you can see the two black metal lines). Why is this?
I would guess that it's probably due to the Lander and and 250T being set up more as "touring" bikes and the extra capacity and oil cooling would allow for longer oil change intervals. They probably don't list any different intervals, but more oil and less temp is going to let the oil stay "fresh" longer.
Did you google "South American Yamaha"?....or do you have a particular site?....I'd like to see these. TIA
Yamaha Brasil. They have a parts download page too. The oil cooler is listed there.
They also have fuel injection if I recall correctly.
Thanks!......I looked at several overseas sites.....didn't see tw200 listed on most sites?. We're lucky to still receive them!.
Great information here, it took me forever to get through it all. 249.4cc just gets me in under the wire. CRF250L, already got some goodies for it, and more on the way. 6" of snow here yesterday though, hopefully it will be a short winter.
Yeah but I think that may have come at the same time as the XT250 getting FI.
The Brazilian Lander has been FI for a few years at least. The Japanese market XT250s have been FI since 2006 (The US didn't even get Xt250s until 2008!). Other market's 250s didn't receive FI until 2013, and I suspect that some places still get carbed models, but I'm not positive of that.
Impressive trip. Keep us informed.
