SOLD! Posted on Craigslist and Market Place - at least ten calls in 2-hours. First person to show up did a quick test ride and paid full price.

2007 Yamaha XT225 Great Shape $2,650

This is the last year Yamaha made the venerable XT225 a well-known and loved bike with a tremendous on-line community behind it. Check out the various XT225 forums www.xt225.com and https://advrider.com/f/threads/the-official-xt225-thread.178968/

My mechanic and I have done some serious maintenance and upgrades on this bike since I bought it with 6,700 miles on it. Yes, I do ride the bike! As a dual-sport it sees a lot of trail action where the bike can handle its own with newer, larger displacement bikes. But none have the low seat-height of the Yamaha XT225. This is a fantastic bike for shorter riders, new riders, older riders (like me) who don’t want to feel like they are sitting on a pogo stick.

About the bike:

8,330 miles
Valve adjust and complete factory scheduled tune-up at 7,000 miles
Rebuilt carb
New intake manifold
New chain, front and rear sprockets (stock 15:45 gearing)
PM Rack (Rotax compatible) https://www.pmracks.com
Flush rear taillights (don’t hit with your legs getting on/off)
Shorty front turn signals
Bar-end protectors
Aluminum skid plate
Brush guards
Upgraded break-away brake levers
New high-intensity headlight
New mirrors
DMO Specialties large foot pegs http://dmospecialties.com
Kenda K270 front tire, like new after 1,500 miles
Continental TKC 80 rear tire, like new after 500 miles
Trued and balanced rear wheel
Comes with a Haynes owner’s manual and a bike cover
60 to 75MPG depending upon riding conditions, style, terrain

Runs Great! Very clean example of a 2007 dual-sport bike.

Thanks AZ4x4

Well since two of my riding buddies are on XTs, one an '06 XT225 in pristine shape and the other on a 2020 XT250 I expect to have numerous group photos to continue to share.

I'm most likely buying a Husqvarna FE350S. Still want a true dual-sport and not too keen on moving up to a big-bore enduro that tips the scales at over 340 pounds. Prefer something more nimble like the XT.

But I know I'll be giving up being able to stick my feet down whenever I want. The FE and other related bikes all have pretty tall seat heights albeit they are narrow in the mid section.

Keep you posted.

JP
