I just picked up a sweet used one last night for my wife. I know that you can't YZ time a TTR but surely there has got to be a way to massage a little more power out of these nice little machines.

I noticed that there are several of you out there who own these and would appreciate some suggestions for parts and necessary items to have.

Bruce, first thing you should get before you ride that ttr is a BBR chain guide, $70, saves the chain from breaking the engine cases like mine. If the wife is over 100# you will also want to get the BBR springs. My son weighs 85# and constantly bottoms the forks. If you look at the rear chain guide it only has one side, even a slightly loose chain can be knocked off or derailed easily. Living in wis. I went up one size on the slow jet, bike was very cold blooded and would not stay runnung cold, also richened up the idle screw. Other than those things the bike seems fine for the $. Have fun and good luck. mike

I think a gas cap swap is the first thing that should be done to a ttr225. All you have to do is remove the gas cap and install a new bike underneeth. This has worked very well for a couple of my friends.

BBR seems like a really knowledgeble outfit for the TTR, but their prices are 150% to 200% of what I'd expect to pay for the same part for other bikes.

Scott's makes what looks like a decent chain guard for less money, see http://www.scottsper...html#scotts.htm

I am also looking for a decent skid plate to replace the plastic one that came with the bike, as I'm not ready to ante up $139 for the BBR model. These normally cost about $75 for other bikes I have owned.

Let me know if you find other sources, as my son has a TTR125 too.
