2002 ttr 225 PROs and Cons

Recommended Posts

I am looking at a clean 2002 TTR 225 for my 13 yrld son 5' 9" 180# he has out grown

His DRZ 125 would this be a good choice for $1300.

FWIW we are also looking at a KLX 300 also a 2002 for $1400

go 4 the KLX,imo.

ttr225 look good on paper, but from experience rn't. ttr230 better or crf230 better yet. check other tt threads on the ttr225 pros and cons for more opinions, but in a nutshell, ttr225, low seat height, heavy, heavy(no typo), no aftermarket, cheap, reliable, low gearing, soft suspension, expensive replacement parts.

how does he handle ur kdx?

yea, the "transition height" is a major issue for most. if he's just a bit short, average rider, then the KLX is the best choice imo. if skills are an issue, then the 230's, as transitional step.
