Xt225, TTR225 and TTR230 pipes will fit.



Usually plentiful on ebay.



You'll usually need to trim aboout 1/2" inch or so from the muffler end to use the stock TW muffler. Shouldn't be an issue to reuse your Supertrapp if you gotta.

any idea how far do these similarities go.... whats the odds of bolting a 225 cylinder on to a 200 bottom end?

The cylinder isn't a boltup. You'll have to disassemble your motor and enlarge the case mouths and the 225 crankshaft has a longer stroke.



How plentiful/expensive are complete TW225 motors over there? They aren't an option here, but hat would be the quick and dirty route.

might be able to get one - but there's a big pile of red tape to go thru if u switch the engine serial number - an its not "legal" to do if the format of the serial number changes,,.. so if the engine serial number has the first 4 letters the same but the digits are different its do able..



but if its totally different cant do it legally... as they will realise its a different rather than a replacement engine...



looks like she can stay with the 200 - its just that she was moaning about up hills... I suppose a different set of sprockets could help but 1st is already really short as it is!







back to the doable! I ordered the exhaust downpipe... its costing me just under US$20
so thats good - may have to make a bracket for that downpipe worst case scenario!



hopefully the supertrap will fit on!



cheers!
