Geez Fred, what did you do? Sleep with the guy?! Ha!CJ7Pilot gave me his project XT250 engine. That would be close to a TTR, right?
Only a 5-speed and still needing some research to get CDI/Stator/Flywheel to all play happily together it will eventually go into one of my TWs...still debating which though.
First though I want to get caught up on Betty Boop's suspension up-geade to hopefully exceed Nibbler's longer travel suspension for stroke and feel. Just got triple clamps back from machinist bored for CJ7PILOT's
36mm TTR225 forks. Tapered steering head bearings all ready to go. Matching rear shock/spring combo ready to go requiring only a little swing arm grinding to clear the nittrogen reservoir. I just need commitment and fewer other distractions in life.
Late Fall weather is just too tempting to ride rather than wrench.
Congratulations 👏🎉I just made a deal on the OP engine, plus the front engine mount. Didn’t pay sticker price, and free shipping. It’ll be a while before I do the swap, but I already have the output shaft. I’ll need a new clutch cable, and a kicker. This’ll be fun.
Thank you sir. I’ve not even started, and I’m learning already. So, are you saying that even though the ‘94 XT225 has the clutch arm on the left side, I still need to swap in a TW200 arm?Congratulations 👏🎉
You can use the TW clutch cable. Just get a clutch arm off eBay. They are cheap. One screw holds it in. Easiest swap ever.
There are 2 types of clutch arrangements for the XT225. The one you have pulls the lever straight ahead and the cable attaches to the left side of the cylinder base. You should be able to use your TW cable for this. The other style pulls toward 2:00 and there's a bracket that bolts on where the case halves meet. For that arrangement you would need an XT225 cable, which is an easy swap and pretty inexpensive. That's the style I have on mine. Some guys with the later style swap out the clutch arm for a TW arm and reuse their TW bracket. You essentially already have that. No need to swap any parts that I can see. The differences are illustrated in posts #22 and #57 here Do As I Say, Not As I Do .Thank you sir. I’ve not even started, and I’m learning already.

Not XT250, XT225.Thank you sir. I’ve not even started, and I’m learning already. So, are you saying that even though the ‘94 XT250 has the clutch arm on the left side, I still need to swap in a TW200 arm?
