Hi guys. Looking for ideas for my little xt225/250 I realise it will never be a grunt machine, but looking for a little extra fun. I love the size and weight of this bike. I find it the easiest thing to jump on for short trips, and i get it on the dirt a bit. I have other, more powerful bikes, but dont want to part with the xt. The little baby is almost new. Only got 4000kms on the clock. Have "adjusted" the exhaust (using a holesaw) and adjusted the jets and airbox to match. The thing sounds awesome now, even if it is grumpy when cold. Has lost the very low down torque, due to no backpressure, but mid-range is much better. I now have a little oil cooler and pump to put on, and some performance valve springs (from a racing 4wheel bike shop in america), and am wondering about cam grind, and compression ect. Has anybody had any expreience with these motors? Any reccomendations ? Just want some torque low-mid range. I am going to pump oil from the sump, through the oil cooler, and back into the rocker cover, over the valve train, so hopefully it should stay nice and cool. cheers.
