TE News, Info, links?

Recommended Posts

Have a 06TE 250 on order and cant wait to get it. Anyone have some good info or pics on these? I wonder when the first reviews will be available. Anyone know of known problems or tips of these models(05/06)? Is there big bores available yet? Is the stock gearing good for tight stuff? Does this have a soft or stiff clutch? can the headlight bulb wattage be increased? I am at work ($overtime$) and would like something to read. Post anything a pic a link.

I am going from a 03 WR250f to this street legal TE250. This should be perfect. :banghead:

Thanks kiwijohn. This is just what I need for my last hours on the job. I s the headlight wattage increased for the 06? I think the 05 TE's was 35 watts?

Aloha from prison.

last year in the cyclenews article and the first dirt rider reviews, they both said they really liked the TE-250. i think it was dirt rider who said they were keeping that 250! never heard anything more though. I like the WR250F, its a good bike, the TE-250 will be different. I'll be curious to read your review of it.

George at Uptite was going to make a 327 cylinder for the 250 but i think my buddy is the only one waiting for him to do so. That would make for one sweet ride if it ever comes about. He added a larger gas tank, black, looks sharp. Plus a Scotts stabilizer and Flexx bars. Getting ready for the desert!

Oh, and he had Baja Designs bump up the lighting end of things. Not sure if stock will take a much bigger bulb. Clutch is an easy pull. Gearing probably fine unless a walking pace is needed. I rev it up and dump but we ride the desert so..

Uptite and Halls are still on hold with the big bore kit-I call both about once a month. Both are having problems with the head gasket, no promise or idea when the kit will be complete. IF anyone hears of another source, please post!
