    Xt Forum

    For those of you that have both a TW & an XT what would you say is the best XT Forum similar to this one? My buddy just pulled the trigger on a 2018 xt250 being delivered in 2-3 days. Zero dirt or dual-bike experience but has a lot with Harley's (he's selling), big BMW's and fast Yamaha's (YZ).
    Similar to picking up a TW, he wants to view all the mods & stuff. I'll probably encourage him to join here too.
    Advrider is obvious but specific to XT...? Thanks.

    Not much on-line and nothing remotely compared to this forum.
    Here is some XT info:

    https://tw200forum.com/forum/general-...a-xt250-5.html

    In hindsight, I would NOT do the air box mod

    https://tw200forum.com/forum/other-bi...tion-mods.html

    I mod most intakes, but not my TW.
    I did it on my CB1100. Not much difference in performance, but I do like the sound.

    Happy to answer any XT250 questions, if I can.

    Mods?
    The seat is more comfortable than a TW, but not really a long distance seat
    Other than that, change oil early, ride it, add fuel and enjoy.
    I went to LED turns with an LED flasher, but not much value...just something to do.
    An LED tail/brake light is the first "mod" on any bike.

    A lot can be done with factory tool kit. I saved the open wrenches and carry them on my CB1100.

    They do not seem to be common around here. Traded mine last Nov for $4,000. Dealer (Yamaha, Honda, etc.) had it for several months before selling if for $2,999.

    Just a wee bit more info here: https://tw200forum.com/forum/trails-o...lley-fire.html

    Going longer distances, now: https://tw200forum.com/forum/trails-o...las-vegas.html

    That was the last time I saw my Dad before he was hospitalized. Saw him in the hospital April 28, but not easy to communicate. He passed from this life April 30.
