OK, I'm willing to put in $1 towards an oil change...solve this frickin' mystery!!!
Ok, change your oil. Take some good pix & post 'em up.
Yeah, I know. A little more than a buck$ worth just for the oil.
Patience Grasshoppers...All in good time.
You know, if I laid the bike on it's side, I'd hardly lose a drop. I might just tear into it tomorrow?
...or you could drain and reuse the oil.
New filters are a mm or so taller than the space allotted them in the filter housing. tightening the filter housing covering plate to the correct torque crushes the filter a bit and creates a good seal. There is the possibility that if the rubber on either end of the filter wasn't lubed it stuck to the inside of the filter housing, and with the latest filter removal, the rubber ends of the filter stayed inside the housing, sorta like what TomS said.
I don't recall any rubber either, apart from the o-ring
Hi, All XT 225 Fans!! Check out the XT 225 for sale. Its on CL Buffalo. Its under Oct 30 section.
Good Luck!!!! BIG ED XT&TT 600 FAN!!!!:eek1:eek1
Woofer...I'm driving my truck down the road today thinking about this filter thing and low and behold, this is exactly what I'm thinking. Looking at the inside of the recommended Yamaha filter I can see that the two rubber prongs of which I spoke, are the means by which the rubber donuts are attached to the front and rear of the filter itself? Duh!...Thanks a heap for chiming in.
Thanks to all for responding to my post and my apologies for not being a little more observant.

What did it take to put the YZ forks on the XT?
All that is needed is a XT225 fork stem. Press out the YZ forks stem and install the xt one. I never have try it on a XT 225. You may have to get a shim made, not sure. Theres a web site just for XT 225 , I think i read about it there too. Good Luck!!! BIG ED XT FAN!!!!:eek1
I just can't get no respect.
I noticed that...
I'll send you $1 too
I should send you one for noticing.

I got parts in yesterday and fixed the bike last night. The stator was fried. It even had some sizzle at the base of the ignition pole. I replaced the pulse generator at the same time.
The plastic connector was broke in shipping so I had to install what was left and electrical tape it tight. I cant figure out how to get the gray connector off of the old stator and reuse it.
Edit. I got the connector switched over.
Don't point the finger at me! I gave you credit!
On another note, the temperature here has been in the low 30's -low 40's here, and I have begun to plug the bike into a battery maintainer. After sitting 3-4 days it seems to start on the second or third crank now, whereas if left unplugged for a few days and then cranked, it doesn't fire. I think the battery loses just that much voltage sitting in the cold for a few days, enough to not create a great spark.
I suppose I could put in that new battery I have in the basement as well, seeing as the current one came with the bike when I bought it almost 3 years ago...
Sounds like you know what to buy the XT for X-mas.
That reminds me....Santa needs to get his but in gear. (Nothin' like saving all year so the fat man in the red suit can screw ya' each Decenber....BaHumbug!!!)
Emm ... I'm not ... I didn't.
Oh, the original batt in my 2005 Xt is still working. Poor little bike hardly gets used though.
I changed the battery on my '05 this past season, and what a difference in starting it made. Before it would crank, but need charger help to start when the temps were cold. Now it cranks and starts easily, big difference.
Just havin' fun Tom S
Ditto. Big difference. 20f no problem with a new battery.
I just got a pair of Tusk grip warmers for the little XT. I'm thinking about getting her a pair of folding mirrors too. Tis' the season.
Does any one run a heated gear setup on their xt? Would like to run a jacket and set of gloves but it seems that the alternator can't take it in these bikes, true?
