Hey, I’m looking at getting my almost 15 year old son a bike. He’d be riding it almost all the time on trails, not very much if at all on tracks. I really like the ttr, and I’m looking at the ttr230. What do you guys think about that bike. Or something similar that you like more. Thanks!
Hello friends, My friend and I rode some of the Paiute Trail System in Utah last month. We loved it. At one point we found this little jump and spent a few minutes goofing around on it. This video is of my buddy jumping his Yamaha TT-R230.
So, I need some help. Badly. My wife and I are about ready to light our new (used) bikes on fire in frustration in our driveway, trying to get them to start and run. She has a Yamaha 2016 TTR230 (17.5 hours...seriously) and I have the 2002 KTM 200 EXC (~200 hours). I'm brand-new to dirt bikes, she has some experience. We both have really solid utility riding experience (ATVs and UTVs), just new to the whole two wheel aspect. We both know our way around small motors, but this is stumping the sh*t out of us. We bought them from two separate owners- one outside of Atlanta, one near Boone, NC- and they ran fine on the test rides. Both bikes started right up, ran great around the previous owners' properties. We got them home to our house in western NC, ran them up and down our road, they ran fine. Now, 4 days later, we can't get them to fire and stay running. Mine isn't a priority right now- throttle cable was hanging on by a thread, so that is on order. Even then, I can't get it to pop with proper kickstart technique. I know two strokes can be finicky, but I'll tackle that in a few days when I have the fresh cable on. The TTR is blowing our minds though: 4 stroke with an e-start. It doesn't get any easier than that, right? Not for us. Checked EVERYTHING: spark is good, air is good, battery is on the tender and strong, choke on for cold start, tried bump starting...nothing. But it is definitely flooding, but we're not even getting a quick pop like it even wants to try and work for us after draining the bowl or tilting it to drain out the overflow. What am I missing? Could this be a carb/jetting issue? Thanks
