Ok, you’re a n00b. I’ll help you out with some posting inf.....
I think I got it.. Was trying to help the OP with some shim alternativies. Must of misunderstood. please forgive chechako friend
You are in some wonderful riding area for the lil XT.
GPS is ready!
Excellent. Now increase that odometer, soldier. That's an order. (wink)
It's a new year. You know what that means...
...wake up, little XT. It's time to go riding!
Just did the 3 turn mod to my carb. Mine was only screwed out 1.25 turns from the factory. The difference is noticeable right away. Before, when the bike was cold, I would have to start the bike 4-5 times every time and it wouldn't accept throttle right away. Now, it starts and idles instantly and will accept throttle after a few seconds. I am also able to turn the choke off a lot sooner too.
Got a 3,000 mile trip planned for this spring. Got big plans for her
kamper bob, what brand rear rack do you have on bike?
It's a DIY (do it yourself) special described here.
Can anyone recommend some "appropriate" saddlebags and tail bag to go with the Happy Trail OSR side racks and tubular tail rack? Been eyeing the Wolfman Expedition stuff. Does anyone have any experience with them on our bikes?
Thought I would say hi here.
I had a 1995xt225 a few years ago and ended up selling it and have since regretted it.
Last week this followed me home from southern Maine:
Its the 2007 model. Planning to work on some modifications this winter and can't wait to ride it once the weather gets a bit warmer (negative 1F here this morning)
Her post got me thinking about the mighty XT225's run over the model years. It occurred to me there should be a Wiki page. Then I checked and by golly somebody did stub one out.
I'm thinking we could flesh out that page. The color scheme changed just about every model year so a set of such pix might be a nice contribution. Visitors might also appreciate a link to this thread and other forums. I'll put it on my to-do list. Any other takers?
Are there any triple trees and larger forks that are a direct bolt on to the XT225. Or, a set that might fit with slight modifications?
By far the easiest and best upgrade is .42 springs and cartridge emulators with 15w fluid. I think ever heavier springs are available too.
I think offroad.com did a yz fork swap on a ttr230 which is pretty much the same bike.
spring upgrade is great , did one, but i'd like LONGER forks so thanks for the info on the yz..will go take a look.
update/edit, took a look: thx dude, here's some good stuff i found jus from google your yz suggestion,

Yes, thanks for the info. That's something I may look into. For anyone else that may be interested, here is the info on the swap:
Lisa, I had a 1992 XT225 for many years and many, many miles. A great, super-dependable bike but I started worrying about the miles I had on it. It was either do a complete rebuild or find one with fewer miles. As luck would have it, shortly thereafter I found a 2007 with only 247 miles on the odometer and sold the 1992. Now, I live at 4400 feet in elevation and most of my riding starts there and goes up to around 12,000 feet - so I was surprised to find how lean the 2007 ran, even at those altitudes. If whoever owned that bike before you did has not done it yet, you might want to read up on what it takes (pretty simple fix, really) to rejet the carburetor and have it run like it should. Lots of good information on this site and over on XT225.com.
