Hello all,

I am the owner of a 2006 XT225 that I purchased in July. After 300 miles it started burning oil and then the timing chain came off. I need the following parts and I can't seem to find a good place to purchase them. Maybe there isn't much of an aftermarket for these bikes?

Cylinder,piston kit, top end gaskets, both valves, and carb to cylinder flange.

I still haven't figured out why the timing chain popped off.

Thanks in advance.

OEM parts are available from many sources. I have found Rocky Mountain ATV/MC and Partzilla as online suppliers to have good prices. Rocky Mountain has a better website and faster delivery. Partzilla is normally the least expensive.

I'll also argue that it's a good idea to support your local dealer as well. Without them, there is no motorcycle industry.

Honestly no, there isn't a huge aftermarket for the XT like there is for something like a DRZ. If you need to replace the whole jug, a donor engine off ebay is likely the best bet. You can also get an oversize piston and bore the cylinder to match.


This shall pass, be still and know.

Take a look at THIS XT225 TOP END KIT on eBay..

The above is my opinion. Your mileage may vary.
1994/2001 custom built XT225 with a ton of aftermarket parts.

Actually there is a decent aftermarket for the XT225. Both ProCycle and Rocky Mountain have a LOT of parts for the XT. It's oem Yamaha parts that are starting to disappear. May oem parts can be replaced with aftermarket parts. You can get a complete new aftermarket swingarm pivot shaft and all the bushings and seals. You can get aftermarket shocks and fork parts and steering head bearings, gas tanks, seats, rims, spokes, wheel bearings, turn signals, handlebars, mirrors, footpegs, complete carburetors, horns, sprockets, chains, grips, batteries, brake pads and shoes, brake hose, control cables, and many other parts. But try and get engine parts, fenders, sidecovers, etc., and you're out of luck. There are 10 times more aftermarket parts for the 225 than there are for the newer 250. But as 225 engines start to wear out and cannot be rebuilt due to a lack of oem parts, there will be fewer 225s still in service, less demand for aftermarket parts, and the aftermarket will likely start to disappear. You can still buy brand new aftermarket Shovelhead and EVO engines for Harleys, but that will never happen with Japanese bikes. Japanese bikes have always been built to be disposable. Even the newer Twin Cam and up Harleys are built to be disposable. Vintage British bikes used to have a huge aftermarket, but that is already starting to go away. If you want to keep an old Japanese bike going, start hoarding parts, and buy a couple of parts bikes.


New head and base gaskets, valves, piston and rings, and intake manifold are available from cheapcycleparts.com. New cylinders are no longer available from any source I know of. Those were only made by Yamaha, they only made so many, and my guess is they are all gone. It is very unlikely the aftermarket will ever make cylinders. The XT I ride has 35K miles on it. But I have a parts bike with a 3K mile engine if I ever need it.


The above is my opinion. Your mileage may vary.

2005 XT. Severely damaged a cylinder from circlip coming loose and wrist pin gouging cylinder wall. Shipped cylinder and new piston to LA Sleeve. They re-sleeved my cylinder. Fixed.

There's always a way to fix these bikes, no matter the issue we're dealing with. Fortunately these 223cc engines don't fail very often. Most of them go the distance for us and then some. All they ask is regular maintenance and proper care. But when something does happen, like with your bike, having a place like LA Sleeve to send a damaged cylinder to is vital. Glad they got your XT's cylinder fixed, and glad your bike is running again. Good on 'ya!..
