    Some modding suggestions for ttr230?

    What's up, I just got my used ( but like new ) TTR 230 2011 for one heck of a deal (1300 with 400$ worth of equipment). Me and my friend have been riding mine and his bike past couple days like crazy, but his crf230f has got alot some acceleration on it. I'm not trying to make mine better than his I just want to explore the world of modding on a dirt bike. Also when starting cold it can take up to like 30 seconds to get it going. What are some mods you guys would suggest trying? I hear people say rejetting will help a whole lot out, if so can you link me to where you bought the jets and how I should install them? I don't want to be doing anything too pricey at the moment because I just bought it.
  2. Just as the title says, what's everyone's favorite eBay mods for your bikes. I find my self buying quite a few parts on there for cheap money. Might not be the best stuff but it sure is cheap! 👍🏻

    DRZ cheep dirt mods

    Hey all, Through out the years of dreaming and envisioning the prefect dirt build (perfect to me), I have finally came across the mods that I think make this the best possible DRZ dirt mod list on the cheep. I am a young married college student so my budget is slim to none, however I'm a motorcycle addict. Due to my tight budget and big imagination I had to do some selective purchases to revamp my 2005 DRZ-S. When I bought the bike it was pretty much bone stock, except the seller did hook it up with 3x3 mod, correct jetting, and yoshi RS3 full system. While I did love the bike in its 'almost' natural form, the 320lb scale weight and spongy trail performance was quickly hindering my off road capabilities. In short, I wanted to drop some pounds, give her a face lift and tune the suspension to my taste. What I ended up with was exactly what I had envisioned, and I did it on the cheep. What I want to do here is throw down a list of all the parts I used to make my bike lighter on the scale, prettier, and all around better. The mods I did made a night and day difference with off road performance, it sits just a hair over 300lbs now and had no problem keeping up on hard trails, single track, and wicked hill climbs. Starting from the top down and front to back: Pro Taper 7/8 CR high bend (RMATVMC) $62 BikeMaster 7/8 bar risers (amazon) $28 Clutch+Brake Pivot Levers CNC (eBay) $20 Fly Racing hand guards (amazon) $46 Odi ruffian grips (RMATVMC) $9 Winllyat Motorcycle Turn Signals (amazon) $18 (4 pack) GOOFIT Universal 12V 35w (amazon) $26 Acerbis Front Fender 02 Yellow - 2007 SUZUKI RM250 (RMATVMC) $20 Suzuki gel seat (amazon) $180 Primary Drive 520 Chain (RMATVMC) $43 Tusk LED brake light (RMATVMC) $29 Kenda Trackmaster set (RMATVMC) $107 120/100-18 Rear 80/100-21 Front Let me know what y'all think of this look and if you have done anything similar. The sky is the limit (and the pocket book) with these bikes so post your images and lets see what you got!
  4. Hey guys, loving this forum, Ive been reading alot and created an account today! I got myself a pretty much sock 2010 DRZ400E, Im in the middle of converting it to a motard (using CBR250R wheels) so i can easily swap between road and dirt. I would love any suggestions from you guys on what i can do it my bike to make it look, sound and run better. I dont have the largest budget, but i really want to get into doing things myself, i have quite a few tools through work already, but i am very pretty amateur in the world of bikes. I was thinking of getting a Yoshi pipe (i like deep sounding bikes), new plastics, some stickers, bling kit and might spray paint my new wheels gold (myself properly). I think i want my bike primarily black and gold. No idea in the way of power mods yet. What would you guys to do this bike? and where can i buy the materials cheap and easily?

    2013 Wr250f sm conversion. Help...

    Appologies for the book but bare with me here, in need of some input... Ok, so i bought a wr250f it wasnt street legal i made it legal and got plated through south dakota. I did a baja designs enduro lighting harness kit with the stator modification. Put an fmf slip on exhaust on it and jetted the carb. I forget what jets i used and i put an air fuel mixture screw in it. Problem1.After my baja kit i put on it wouldnt start. Turned out that the solenoid under the seat was loose or something i pushed down on it when it was clicking and it started running again. Problem 2.Went riding, it ran great on the trails. Went riding for a day or 2 on the street, after a while the electric start stopped working and it became a bitch to kick over. It started making the same click noise like when the battery is dead under the seat. Idk whats up with that. Then on the street i was riding and the bike stopped having power in the throttle i would pin it full throttle and it wouldnt take off like it usuallt does. I pulled over, let it sit for 5min and kicked it over again and the power i had came back in the throttle. It did that 2 more times durring the ride and i went home. Do you think this is a computer issue, a carb issue, fuel air ratio issue. Im going to do an airbox mod on it thiss weekend maybe thatll help. Problem3. I ordered some rims and stuff from warp9 so i can sumo it out and i was curious on what size sprocket would make my gears longer and better so im not maxing my rpms out at 40mph. I can do a solid 65mph on the bike but thats like pushing it and im in 5th gear as soon as i hit like 30mph, id love 6gears but im trying to avoid regearing the bike and using a smaller sprocket in the rear and maybe a tooth or 2 bigger in the front i guess, i still wanna be able to pull wheelies. I feel like im gonna blow the motor if i leave it alone and just ride street with it. Mind you this was the wr250f=for off road use only. not the wr250r=street legal from factory, i live in nj. I should have just got the street legal one or a supermoto already done but i wanted to build one and make it custom for me. I already put alot of money in to it and dont even own it 100% yet so im not trying to get rid of it anytime soon. Im not even done with it yet.
  6. So I have been wanting do to this build for a long time. Now that I have some time on my hands and the resources I need, I am going to give it a go. I am building a frame-mounted mini rally fairing. The components will all be 3D printed for the first iteration and I later plan to laser cut a stronger version and provide flat DXF files for laser cut metal versions. I will attach pictures as I design the mounting and as soon as I finish my prototype, I will release files so anyone else can make one too. I am not sure how I am going to create the fairing itself, I do have some fiberglass experience so I will most likely try that. My prototype will be installed on a 1983 XR350R I am rebuilding and I will also install one on my '85 XR600R and I may possibly make one for my '07 YZ250F as well, so the mounting will be designed to fit multiple makes and models. The fairing will house two LED light pods and have a mount for a standard sized cell phone. I may make other mountings for the fairing like a single light version or secondary mounts for trail computers etc. I plan to design it to be completely modular. The first iterations will all be installed with large zip-ties for easier modification. Later iterations will be either hard mounted (welded tabs) or bolted. Anyone who has attempted this before any advice would be appreciated. First prototype I am printing pictured below:
  7. Hey TT, I just got 2005 DRZ400E. It didn't come with any manuals that's why I'm asking fellow DRZ owners for some help. Please bear with me if I'm asking obvious and or lame questions, it's my first bike . I'm in Colorado @5280' plan to take it to higher elevations. My riding will be some pavement and the rest FSR's, maybe some super easy single tracks initially. I plan to plate it. What manual, including repair manual, can be recommended? Anything available to download? I found a manual on DRZ400E.com but it seems to be for the S model and not the E. What gas should I use? It's a higher compression motor and I believe the manual calls for 91. Although, would it be different at a higher altitude? What oil and filter should I use? How ofter should I be changing oil? What air filter and sealant is recommended? What hand guards do you recommend? Integrated turn signals might be nice but not a deal breaker Skid/bash plate. Security. It's stored in the garage most of the time but I might need some extra security when I travel. Here are some things I thing might be useful. Any thoughts? Front disk break lock with alarm Heavy duty chain and a lock Speedometer. It just came with a trip meter. What break fluid can be used? What coolant should I user? Any cool taillight hubs? Front and rear tires. I'm thinking of getting Kenda Trackmaster II K760 as they appear to be a good bang for the buck. Are Dunlop D606 that much better as the price suggests? Mirrors. Something neat would be nice.
  8. I have a 230 I just picked up a 06. I am pretty happy with it. I have been getting it back into top shape. Have a few questions... 1- The exhaust might have taken a hit at some point... Take a look at the picture... 2- are their any slip ons that actually do anyting for performance? I know they will sound louder...but im talking about a HP increase... 3- i have not yet done the powerup which I plan to do...if I put on the slip on does that change the recommend jetting? 4- how much up and down play is there in your clutch? mine seems very loose up and down but actually using it feels normal... I tried to tighten the bolt but cant seem to close the gap. Any other mods to get the most out of the bike... I do not plan to move up to MX, I just want this bike to be all it can.
  9. I thought I'd start a new thread to help keep track of accessories and mods for the new 2017 Honda CRF250 Rally. To start things off, the rear rack bolts from the standard CRF250L are the same on the Rally. I expect a radiator guard won't be a major problem (maybe a little grinding) but I think a skid plate (bash plate) will require an all new design (required to fit into side fairings). The guys at crfsonly.com (https://www.crfsonly.com/catalog/index.php/cPath/355_358_362) have now added the Rally as a specific model you can select to search for parts. They seem to be working hard to figure out what parts will fit from the standard CRF250L. So as you find good parts and figure out mods - post away!
  10. Soon as most people get a factory bike the first thing they do is take out the snorkel (myself included). However the other day someone told me that having the snorkel on actually helps at altitude (I'm about 340m above sea lvl), I'm pretty sure this is bs, but who knows. Anyone heard this before?
  11. Can some one explain to me the actual difference between the 2001 exhaust and the 2003 exhaust for a yz250f. When I look at the schematics for both exhaust it is the exact same picture with updated part numbers for that model year. I have read mixed reviews on if they fit or don't fit. So if somebody knows the actual reason why the 2003 won't fit the 2001 please enlighten me. Also, please don't respond to this with I read on the FAQ that they don't fit. I want the reason they don't fit.

    TTR 125 Mods?

    I'm looking to mod out my 2015 TTR 125 but I can't seem to find anything really except for like exhausts, sprockets, rims and obvious stuff like that. If anyone could help me out with some links or just names of stuff that would be great.
  13. Hey Thumpers, We just picked up another DRZ...woot My son has moved up from a DRz125L and we picked up a nice 2002 DRZ250. Still has original back tire !! We are planning on doing a few mods and are following the "Uncork Your DRZ250" how to. PDF Here: Uncork Your DRZ250 I am a little confused about the main jet sizes listed in the “how to” It states the TM28 Stock Main Jet is #127.5 (4/042 180) So the (100.604) #127.5 is the round main jet and the (4/042) 180 is the hex main jet. The how to says I need 2,3 and 4 sizes up from stock. And says I need #137.5, #142.5, and #147.5 (4/042 180) ? This doesn't make sense ? So without taking the carb apart to look, does anyone know if this tm28 use the round jets or the hex jets? We are going to remove the restrictor weld from the header and add an FMF slip on. We will then do the airbox mod and replace the airfilter with a UNI filter. As per the "how to" we will change the pilot from a #37.5 to a #40 And shim the jet needle with three .025 washers. Can anyone chime in with more specifics on which main jet will work best for our future setup? Thanks in advance thumpers.

    New 2018 350 XCF!

    I'm finally getting my first KTM and i'm super excited. I will be picking it up this month sometime. I've done a lot of research and have gotten a bit overwhelmed with everything I have found online regarding the newer models. I'm talking about the lean fuel delivery, engines running hot, choked up air intake and exhaust pipe ETC. I want my bike to run as good as it can without spending a fortune on new parts and mods. adjusting the TPS looks promising and My dealer can install the Euro EFI map but he says you'll only notice a difference with a new pipe. can I mod the stock pipe to be more open? I'm just looking for some advise and suggestions before I get the new bike. I also ran into this site https://blaisracingservices.com/2012-2017-ktm-husqvarna-custom-ecu-mapping.html This looks really promising, has anyone ever done this? Thanks
  15. Hey all, after a busy summer of school and work I've finally carved out some time to replace my busted countershaft. After reviewing several threads about the kickstart addition, I decided this would be my chance to have a kickstart/easy button combo bike. Luckily enough I found a '95 XR600R basket case with a blown head but very useable bottom end with all the kicker bits I need! Pulled out the engine last night and now I need a little bit of sagely advice from the wise folks here at TT: First, I need a gasket set for the rebuild, will Winderosa/Mooseracing be okay, or should I only put in OEM gaskets? Also, I'll be splitting both cases this week to get all the parts out and begin putting them in the L, but is there anything specifically I should be looking out for when inspecting the donor parts? Any tips on splitting the cases in general? Finally, I know there's been a handful of people who have done this mod, and I know everything fits into place in the L bottom end nicely, but has anyone had any strange issues? This bike will be carrying myself and some gear to Baja this winter for ~3 weeks and it needs to be dead reliable, or at least as reliable as it was last year in baja. Thanks to everyone on the boards who has helped me out thus far, the kickstart add on threads are very helpful! I should say, this is my first complete tear down so any advice/tips are very welcome! Here's a pic of the engines out on bench:

    RFVC xr200r oil cooler?

    Anyways so I got a 1985 xr200r RFVC, and I have heard that the oil really overheats and in some cases people have had their bike (Rarely) go up in flames, however I don't want to take any chances and I heard that there is a way to put on some sort of oil cooler... How do I do it??

    What's next?

    For me half the fun of the L is modding and upgrading! I've generally kept my bikes stock but I've got the bug with this one and am having a blast decking it out just the way I like. Next upgrade for me is RT up front and in the back. What do you have planned for your L?

    2004 CRF80F problem

    So my son was riding his 2004 CRF80F around yesterday and had a major mechanical failure. I am unsure of the issue so I am going to post it here before I start the tear-down tomorrow. He was riding around hauling balls, as usual, and he said he heard a metal "clank" noise from the engine. Being the 14 year old that he is he kept ripping it and a couple of minutes later went OTB. The bike starts and runs but wont shift at all and when I clutch in and push it the bike only rolls a couple of feet before the rear wheel locks up. I have never experienced anything like this so any assistance would be appreciated. Unless I can spot something externally during the initial stages or get some definitive answer on here I will begin the tear down tomorrow. I will keep the thread updated on my progress so maybe it will help someone in the future. Thanks in advance, Skin

    TTR 230 Jetting Issue

    After doing the basic mods to the ttr 230 (changing the main jet to a 130 and pilot jet to a 38, removing silencer in exhaust and the air box mod) the bike now does not want to start. I bottomed out the fuel mixture screw and took it back 1.5 full turns and it will not start. The bike was working fine before the mods. What have I done wrong? EDIT: I’ve adjusted now so it’s 1 turn rather than 1.5 and it starts now, but when I rev it a bit, it cuts out. I then immediately stop revving it and it returns to idle and then idles normally. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Rm125 upgrades

    Hi I was just wondering what upgrades I can do to my 2004 rm 125 (144 bored) that would be cheap but make the bike look amazing

    Stiction on WP Forks

    I would like to get my forks moving faster in order to respond to the smallbump-slowspeed chatter that bothers my ride. My valving is spot on (Race Tech Gold Valve), SKF seals are pretty fresh, and oil is at a good height. Ive come to the conclusion that im probably dealing with some stiction issues. Any tips on how to reduce this? Trying to find some low-budget solutions... (PLEASE dont suggest some kashima coating /ti-nitride fancy pantsy coating because im pennyless) Ive read some folks "polish" the inside of their fork tubes to reduce stiction. How do you polish these? Any special tools or technique?
