• 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.

    Back in the day I had my Gixxer set up by a local race mechanic. At first I was skeptical because the bike felt way too soft around town. But it came alive in the canyons and soaked up bumps without...

    Sweet! roll back the compression dampening enough that you can notice a difference and if that helps.
    Spring rates other then preload are a more expensive to mess with so resort to those last. ...
