    Pirelli and DOT tire question.

    I think i read somewhere that maby its the compound of the tire?I'm not sure.i also heard that it is alot of red tape for a tire company to get tires dot approved,and that that is why you don't see more.I just put some mich. baja on,they have aggressive nobbies also.the baja rear is also wider than my stock dunlop 739.I wold also think u need to be more careful on street with the big nobbies,exspecially when wet.

    carb question

    I jwas just at the yahoo ttr-250 site,and there was a post on how the ttr 250 would do with a bigger carb 34mm?The same guy noticed at yamaha site that the ttr-225 has a 34mm mikuni in it?The ttr-230 has a 26mm,ttr-250 30mm.Why would the smaller bike have the biggest carb?

    Cut your balls off (levers)

    beezer you no the balls this thread is talking about cutting off,i cut mine off my brake lever.i found a little plastic hollow ball.drilled a hole in it filled it epoxy,put the end off the lever in the ball,(the end i cut the ball off from lol) let the epoxy cure good,then dip that half of lever in plastic coat rubber coating,so to sum it up,i shortened my lever without having it like a dagger.as the part about the other lever ,which i didnt have to shorten,it was just a thought,but i was saying for the othe lever if i put some strips of tape on the lever,before i spray it with plasti coat,which as i said u can get in dip or spray(local hardware)dipping u get a thicker coat faster,but i think spray would do this better.anyway after several coats i remove the tape on the lever and the rubber is slightly raised from where i took the tape off,for better grip.i have run out of things to do to my bike lol,cant u tell lol.

    Cut your balls off (levers)

    i had to cut my brake lever ball off today.i got a little ball drilled a hole in it big enough for lever where i cut the ball off.i filled the ball with expoxy and put it in the ball,after it cured i dipped the whole thing in plastic-dip,well not the whole thing only up to where i would grab.u can get spray plasic coat too,which i use alot,did frame guards with the spray.i thought about doing my clutch lever,which i didnt have to cut ball off i found a shorty,i was going to try and put tape around clutch lever then give it some coats of plastic coat,then take the tape off,to give it the effect like having the tape spaced out on the lever for grip.the plastic coat itself is like rubber so i dont even really need to do that.i have found alot of uses for plastic coat,i have seen it in red,blue,black,yellow and clear.

    ttr-250 handlebars

    yea i just put longhorn big bars with cr high bend,had renthal cr high with scotts bend.i would have put the big bars on in the first place,as the renthals are still brand new,but someone at scotts said they didnt have any big bar lower bar mounts for 04 ttr250,they had thought they were 1 piece with the triple clamp,which there not they bolt on.so then i had to round out my 7/8 handlebar handguard clamp,a set i got from rocky mountain for big bars didnt work with my fmf handguards.now i need to eather cut my stock brake lever or get a shorty that fits,i allready have a shorty clutch lever.i no there are more parts out there that fit other bikes that would fit the ttr,i ts just not easy to find out.if anyone knows of a shorty brake lever that would fit let me no.im going to the dealer tomorrow with mine to do a comparison,i allready did that in pictures lol.

    Bicycle Speedometer Installation

    I put a bell speedo from walmart on mine,and had the same deal with the spokes being to big for magnet,after grinding to fit like u,i had the screw problem like you,so i got the smallest hose clamp i could find to go around the back of magnet.Its on there good and works good,i have an old yamaha induro speed o,i replaced the odometer only on my ttr 250 with it and i get consistant readings from both,the bell bicycle speedo has some cool functions like top speed and average speed among others.I made a spool type piece that i mounted bell speedo to,tapped out the spool and mounted it in a hole left after removing stock headlight and putting on baja kit.i had it on bars but saw that unused bracket and liked that postion better.
