When I`m not tinkering with the volvo I`m building this. It`s a Z650 Kawasaki engine in a custom built frame.

Picked this up couple years ago, 1970 Kawi Mach III 500, 2 stroke triple, 5k original miles.

The TTR is a trail/play bike. I'm surprised you don't feel its too small. I'd look into swapping the YZ forks/front end

I think you're thinking of the TTR225 or TTR230. The 250 is more like a full size bike. 36inch seat height, 11in travel on both ends. It feels larger than my brother's YZ125; I think the YZ's seat height is taller, but being narrower it doesn't feel that way. It has a pretty harsh front end. But I think he had all the clickers cranked up. He just adjusted them down, so I'll have to try it again.

Is your bike street legal?

Definitely take your time to setup the suspension but its still not like the KYB mx forks.

Nope, but it's on my to-do list. Probably won't happen until the fall, or maybe next spring. It is not street legal from the factory in the US, so it'll need a bit of work to get it there.

My bike has the Baja Designs kit on it.  The Tusk kit is probably just as good and doesn't cost $500 either.  

picked this up today.  2000 400ex.  Has a new rear axle and carrier, well maintained and not owned by some white trash clown.  Came with a set of paddles mounted on wheels too, the price was right.  All I have to do is take the stickers off.

Guess I should have got a shot of the plate in my original post. Lady at the dmv thought I was nuts when I licensed it.

LOL!!  I told you; I wasn't kidding!  :blink:

The kawa frames, brakes, and suspension of that vintage were scary enough w/o too much HP to boot.  Seriously, be careful!
