• Yamaha TTR 225

    I am a beginner rider that at my age wasn't ready to jump on a big bike. In fact I started a little over a year ago by purchasing a China made pit bike brand new for $300. It was a 110cc small sized bike that I cruised around with my son on his Honda CR50 on the property I live on in the Angeles National Forest in CA. It was fun but I wanted a "real" bike that I could trust to last so I bought a 2005 Yamaha TTR125 LE. This seemed more like a real bike and it was fun to trail ride but when I went riding with a friend I realized I had a kids bike so I went out and bought a 2004 TTR 225. I am 5'8" and weigh 150 so this bike is a nice size for me for now. I like the stability and ease of riding. It might still seem like a kids bike to some but not for the trail riding I do.

    When we say chain "stretch," we really infer chain wear.

    Since each link shares such a small amount of wear, the wear is measured over a series of links. A worn chain will be longer than when it...

    The engine will have 2/3rds the power of the R model. The suspension will be a horrible compromise of street & dirt....
