Thanks for the kind words! I actually did get my asking price, thankfully. And thanks to everyone for being such a friendly, helpful community. I’m going with something a little bigger next. I’m thinking a Kawasaki KLR 650 will be interesting to try. Cheers.

I've never owned a KLR-650, but I rode one some years back and decided it was much too big a bike in every way for my day to day riding. I had a KLR-250 for a short while. Overall it was a decent fit, but the lack of an electric starter got the best of me and I went back to an XT225.

The largest bike I've owned was the specialty built '57 BSA 650 Spitfire Scrambler I purchased from Buddy Stubbs, the BSA dealer in Phoenix, in '58.

Rode it for some time then lost it in a T-bone crash in front of a drive in theater in Phoenix one evening with me aboard. Luckily I survived but the hot rodded engine stuck full throttle and literally blew itself apart. Still have a piece of one of the pistons from that engine that I suspend on a cord outside as a 'Cowboy Weather Device'.

Anyway, glad you got your asking price for your XT225. Good ones are harder to come by than hen's teeth these days, so no sense not getting the max for one if you're going to sell it.

Best of luck coming up with the slightly larger bike you're looking for. Let us know what you settle on when that day arrives!..

i've had a 2000 (gen1) klr for several years and have really enjoyed it. not great at any one thing but, in the right hands, capable of almost anything. huge aftermarket, used and community support. i went farkle crazy on mine and probably spent what it's worth on accessories over the years. great fun on pavement, broken crappy pavement and light off road. i added an '05 xt225 for that.

there are several problem areas to be aware of, however;

the balancer chain adjuster (doohickey).

oil burning issues if ridden above 5k rpm for long periods (piston ring lands can break - well known fix is the 685 big bore kit, eagle mike sells a good one)

there's no coolant bypass, this can lead to the cylinder wearing out of round and lead to oil burning issues as well (thermobob is the fix)

have i talked you out of one yet?

seriously, there are those who've tended to none of these issues and ridden thousands of miles. there are enough who haven't that these are well documented fixes.

mine's currently in pieces, the small end of my rod decided it no longer wanted to hang onto the piston. i've only heard of 2 other similar failures. i rode the snot out of mine.

Ptxyz, ..the link to your pics doesn't work. Message says, "Sorry, the link that brought you to this page seems to be out of date or broken."

Hey PTXYZ,

Thanks for the info. You haven't scared me off! As a matter of fact about half the bikes I'm seeing listed come with those mods plus many more farckles added on. So, I'm being discriminating and trying to settle on one already set up the way I want it.

here's a link to a klr specific forum where i've posted my broken motor woes;

https://www.klrforum.com/threads/not-exactly-proud-of-this.74193/

not sure if one needs a login to view. here's a clip anyone should be able to view of when it happened. until later that day, i didn't see the conrod sticking out of the motor...
