    You got me inspired enough to buy a full Arrow exhaust system from France on ebay ... hopefully it will arrive before Xmas !

    Still haven't found any DT125 X/SM rims yet... there are some TDR ones on ebay but they don't seem to fit without modifications so I guess I'll just have to wait some more...

    We need to see a photo of the final product !

    I'm sure somebody on here posted that TTR 125 & 250 rims are bolt on. Just a case of getting them down to 17".

    Whats the back tire on the TTR motomail? I'm looking at a road legal trials tire as the next replacement. Be keen to see how they go with 8 psi in the back.:freaky

    I had a mild piston slap after my rebuild.

    I have sent the barrel and piston off to Serco to be resleeved and bored to suit the WR200 piston.

    Was hoping to get them back before this weekend to put them back in but no go.

    Will post vid/pics when all done. Hopefully before Christmas.

    I fitted the top end again yesterday with the Serco sleeve fitted.

    According to Alan from Serco i had .0875 clearance piston-bore before the sleeve was installed. Now it finisihes at .0625. I am really suprised at the difference .025 makes (1 thou), its like a totally diferent bike than it was a few weeks ago. Alan did say that as the sleeve is cast iron the rings to seal better and you get better compression compared to the nikasil bore which could also be a factor.

    EDIT: I also suspect the bore may not have been round after it was honed. So it may have been only 0.025 out at one point it could have been 0.075 mid bore or elsewhere.

    Anyway i'm really happy with the result and glad i spent the extra time and money on it post rebuild. No more piston slap!

    HT,

    Is this the exhaust you ordered?

    Let us know how it works out.

    Actually, this is the guy I bought from ...

    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/POT-DECHAPPEMENT-LIGNE-COMPLETE-ARROW-YAMAHA-DT-125-R-X-04-06-52528SU-52601SU-/380528563057?pt=FR_JG_Moto_Pi%C3%A8ces&hash=item5899451371

    Arrived Monday and I fitted it that night. It's sooo much lighter than the original. Not too loud (it's EU compliant) but from a quick blat up the street and back, I think it should improve performance a heap.

    The only issues with fitting it are:

    (1) the exhaust chamber mount is slightly different, so I'll have to fabricate a new hanger mount.

    [​IMG]

    (2) it doesn't have a mount at the end of the expansion chamber like the original

    [​IMG]

    Not too worried about that one, but I'm sure I could make something up if it looked like it was needed.

    The muffler fits in well, and I like the finished look.

    Now, back to finding some motard wheels.

    I'm starting to think maybe I should look at replacing the whole front-end with an USD frontend from a YZ etc. Quite a few of the DT125R guys have done it, but parts seem to be a lot cheaper in the UK than here.

    That's awesome! Those brackets won't take much to sort out. Might shout myself one of those in the new year.

    Hey HoonTune, That looks freakn awesome.

    Finally got around to an update so here goes.
    Cut the stock expansion chamber to check out the cat converter and guess what? The Aussie version must not have got it. Oh well, good chance to clean the carbon out.....shit loads of it. Photos are after I hit the inside of the pipe with the wire brush on a drill.

    Also been setting up my garage to hold the extra bits...here's my dirt front end and dirt rear wheel at the ready for some more dirt work

    FYI, anyone looking for supermoto wheels for the DT, you can also get yourself some TTR250 wheels. I managed to get hold of a front from one of the old Purple wheel models, fitted to the DT230 dirt front end to make sure and fitted perfectly. Mr Yamaha must have been using this same setup for a very long time.

    Here's the old purple rim

    [​IMG]


    And here's the hub, ready to be sent to Ash's Spoked Wheels in Brisbane to be turned into another supermoto wheel. Had to take to the spokes with bolt cutters as the nipples were well and truly seized

    Other rear rim ready to be sent to the tyre shop for an Avon Distanzia

    The TTR250 hub and disk which is the same as the DT230's will also be getting an Avon Distanzia and these will be getting bolted to the DT with the original DT230 front end. I've also got an EFM auto clutch that should only be a few days away from landing in OZ to go in and the DT230 will become my daily work bike (posty). That should make my working day a bit of fun :evil

    And the DT125X wheels and front end that's currently on the DT230 will be going on my new project and future play bike - a Yamaha XT660R. It's a little bent and needs a lot of fixing but should be fun on the big bike adventure rides which I love so much. Will keep you posted on the progress of the DT230 posty..:rofl:

    And in between all this, I've got to resurrect my Yamaha TTR125 for my kids, which I also put an auto clutch in and used as a posty bike. Poor little thing, was never meant to be carrying a fat fuck with 20kgs of mail, but shit it was fun...

    :clapPhwoar!

    I'm seeing bugger all chicken strips on the rear sport demon, must be hilarious in the twisties. You might need to fit some handle bar sliders..

    Ooh, elsewhere on the forum I was reading that Avon do the Distanzias in a dedicated supermoto compund.

    Looks fantastic Robbo !

    I got a couple of alloy rims laced by Ash's for my sons TTR125 just before Xmas - talked to them about lacing up some rims for my Dirt Turtle... let us know how it goes !

    What size tyres are you going to fit ?

    Hey mate thanks,

    Probably go for the 150/70R17 Dual Sport rear which is renowned for its longevity and put the 120/70R17 Super Moto on the front which is supposed to stick like shit to a blanket. I reckon the 160/60R17 Super Moto would fit on the rear too, oohhhh nice big fat one, but decided the DS would better suit my needs.

    I'm thinking of following in your footsteps. I have a spare set of wheels. Probably 120 front because of wide tire choice but a bit overkill for a wee 2fiidly, my TDM has a 110 & happily scrapes the pegs at nearly twice the weight, and a 140 rear, wider will sap performance & may have issues with clearance. Again the tubby TDM has a 150 rear & I'm never wanting for grip. IIR the ideal rear for a 450 SM is 140/150 and that's a lot of bike.
    Not going to fat on the back will keep it very flickable too.

    Have a squizz HERE
