    Luck day! The colors even match.

    I got way lucky today, picked up this 1999 TTR-225 for $200.00, unmolested, very low mileage. Original sprocket, not even worn a little and the exaust port is extremely clean. All screw heads are like new even, never turned..

    and this with ZERO! Zero! Miles a 1990 TW200 engine from a dealer who had it on the shelf. He pulled out of the chassis right off the showroom floor way back when and used the chassis for a project. It's been in the back of his shop on a shelf ever since.

    First step is to buy another TW! I need one to start building so I can keep riding!. I have a line on one but I need to get a real close look at this new 225 and make sure it's as good on the inside as it is on the outside. I also need to get number one daughter a car for college.. This will be a winter build, I'll spend summer and fall collecting all the little pieces.

    Will the 225 bolt right in?

    Yes but the sprocket shaft needs to be swapped with a modified one from a TW (new groove cut and a spacer made)
    225 shafts are shorter and don't extend into the side cover oil fed bearing like on a TW. So you need the TW side cover too and the proper stator/ etc and flywheel.

    And what might you do with your older TW engines?
    I may be in Wharton this weekend if I don't need to be in Pittsburgh as usual,
    It would be my first time on two wheels there since I was there on my Honda CB750,
    Should be an interesting trip.
