Hey all! I have been using my xt225 as a learner bike, and I've been learning to do wheelies Lol. Well the other day I crashed my bike by going too far back, and it seems to have smashed the case of my Speedo, it barely keeps track of the speed anymore, and it doesn't count my miles.Should I go with the Trail tech vapor? Or where could I get a replacement t speedometer? 2006 xt225.

I sounds like this is kind of a beater bike. I would get a used xt225 speedometer of ebay. Or get any cable driven Jap bike speedometer. They a all calibrated the same.

A DT125 speedo fits the job fine if you can't get a xt225.

Do a Ebay search for "universal speedometer" you can get one new for around $20.00.

It's definitely a beater bike. I just wanna be able to fix it all up when I'm done beating it... lol. But I seem to have found one on eBay including the neutral and bright lights panel too. Gonna scoop it soon

I'd be tapping that rear brake a tad the next time you start going too far back. laugh

I'm just impressed you are able to wheelie your bike! I just bought a 1996 XT 225 & it has the power of a Moped! There is no way this thing is going to get the front wheel off the ground!
