Wouldn't those get plugged really easily?
Gave the old girl a fresh muffler bearing the other night.
Dunno, was just showing a pic for illustration. I use a Uni filter in a stock air box, snorkel removed.
My guess is they would in the dirt, but not if mostly street riding. I used to tune a production class road race bike and we may have used six of those in an airbox and it was good for going up one jet size. It never changed over a season, but I am sure it may be different in dirt.
Sorry didn't realize the change in poster. I thought you were the Glenn responding when I saw that.
A buddy I asked about the filter plugs says they are a waste of money and get clogged in less then a day of riding. He rides a DRZ (I think) says he just drilled about a dozen 1/4 inch holes in his airbox and lets the filter do it's job... He has to clean the filter more often but says it gives him a good boost. What do you guys think?
As to the UNI plugs getting full of dirt, they can be snapped in and out. Carry spares in very dusty conditions.
Has anyone seen a Russell on a 225? I'm planning a trip to South America a my artificial hip demands one of these.
Nothing compares to the all day long seat from Russell for comfort and support.
Bumping my question. Anyone racked up a zillion miles on a standard liner?.
Here is a pic of mine.
thats what i did, 3 on a side , kept up as high as possible for water crossings.
thought i read where the 04 and up were nikasil coated bores? That would be good for high mileage.
I'm interested in running the bigger piston in the iron liner. The thickness seems a bit marginal to me but would rather hear some real world input from someone who's done it.
Not a lot of all-out motors being built on this platform, but it never hurts to ask, no?
Hi well today I say a xt225 for sale and deceided I need it to see it (at least) and ask a couple of questions. I live in Baja and this bike is not sell in Mexico, and as any one will tell, I want what I can't have!
So I got a price quote for $2,400 USD but it has Californian plates, so that means another 600-1000 so very expensive to have legally in the country (of course nobody care if I just slap my plate from my any other bike).
Here is my question specially for people from the USA from a state that has no real winter (San Diego, LA from California, Arizona?, Florida) How much would a XT225 sell for? I know it all depends on many conditions, but from a very fast left side view the bike said TOO EXPENSIVE! but an good maintained bike with average miles, how much?
And the second question, (for all) how long will the engine last? (assuming good care) This one had almost 50,000 miles! and I know this is not much for a GS1200 but this is a small engine, that was used in the US so maybe some hwy/interstate miles (at high speeds), So I think this was not care for very nicely, it had a bent level, bent front fender, that is all I saw WITHOUT TAKING MY HELMET OFF AND NO GLASSES, so I am sure if I look I will see more thing. THe sales man was a SALES person so he gave me all the crap, "perfect conditions" "care for by my son in law"
This model is in my list of bikes I will like to have, so I was a little big sad.
Thanks for your time
Walk away from that salesman! You should be able to find a clean XT225 with less than 3000 miles for less than $2000. Easily. To compare, I bought mine (a 2003 model, with 1700 miles) for $1700 in Southern California two years ago. They last pretty well, but at 50,000 miles it's VERY used. Typically, a top end will be needed at the 18,000 to 20,000 mile range.
I understanding wanting what you cannot have, but there a some nice bikes they sell there that never made it here. I think the NX4 or XR250 are good choices. Did Honda sell the Bros in a 250? Yamaha's XTZ250 looks like a fine choice also.
I live in Tucson, AZ. Bought a 2003 XT one year ago - good shape - no problems, about 3000 miles on it, for $1450.
Hey everyone, I've had my XT for about 6 months now and I absolutely LOVE it!
I'm looking to get a little more power out of it? So if I only removed the part of the snorkel on the inside of the airbox would I still have to re-jet it? Everything on the bike is completely stock right now. Any help is GREATLY appreciated.
