Hi everyone! Just picked up a rather beat up 95 XT 225, getting some maintenance done before riding. Fixed stuck carb float, new air filter, oil change (thanks for the info about the little holes in the oil filter forum folks!) New petcock, cleaned yellowed plastic from leaking petcock. Removed tank and fixed a dent with JB weld. Cleaned and resprayed all plastics. Replacing dry rotted, oversized Dunlop 606 with Shinkos. need to clean or possibly replace chain, mount tires, fix a spoke, and I'm off to the forest roads, and beyond! Looking forward to chatting about and discussing these awesome bikes with everyone. Hopefully I can offer at least something back, compared to the info I receive. Cheers.

Welcome new member! Do keep an eye out for black bears in the B-Ham, Whatcom County area. WWU Viking alumni myself. Really enjoyed my time in Bellingham and surrounding areas. Some really nice fire roads out there, especially so on the Olympic Peninsula.

Enjoy.

Welcome to the group! Glad you're here. Getting your XT225 into riding shape is half the fun. The other half comes when you're out on the trails enjoying everything the bike has to offer. Keep the rubber side down and ride safely!..


The voyage of discovery that truly matters is not in seeking new lands but in seeing with new eyes.

Thanks JP! Glad you got to enjoy the Bham area for awhile. I've spent a bit of time in O.C. as well, surfed Dana point and Trestles. lived in Encinitas and surfed all those breaks I'd been reading about as since I was a little grom surfer. I'll keep an eye out for the bears. Mountain lions too, they love a fast moving target with graphics. Thanks for the tip about roads on the Peninsula! I wasn't even thinking that with the Cascades right here, but the roads there look awesome! Cheers.

Thanks everyone! I'll post some pics the work in progress. I just found Duplicolor Ford performance white, used on the new mustang, is almost an exact match for the white on a 95 XT's tank. And supposedly holds up well to gasoline. We'll see!
