  • Still a great trail bike.
    By  (I am an Owner) on May 21, 2019

    I bought a used bike and gave it a tune up. Changed fork oil, added cycle racks front and rear.

    Added some rifle clamps.

    Made a hunting and mountain trail bike out of it.

    Easy to start even at 9,000 ft where i live.

    Just gotta adjust your pilot jet screw on bottom of ...

    Easy to work on.

    Added a frame cradle since i carry heavy things on the racks like tools, gear, and deer carcass.

    You aren't going to break 40 mph unless you are a kid.

    But mileage is ridiculously good putting around the mountains.

    Really just change oil often, check your fork seals, and keep the air cleaner clean and watch tire pressure.

    An ideal utility bike.

  • Surefooted friend (with torque!)
    By  (I am an Owner) on Mar 03, 2012

    A great little trail bike with lots of low end torque for the sticky "Dang! I'd better get on the gas NOW" situations that off-road beginners like me get themselves into. I ride the same gullied, sandy, rooted, tight trails that my woods racer husband does (I'm a 'tad' slower...) and this bike handles ...

  • Just fine as is
    By  (I am an Owner) on Nov 28, 2009

    This is more a response to the other review, low compression.

    I don't think it would be possible to have a ratio that high. It is perfect. If it had a bigger bore it would not be a 125.

    The bike is a rock solid bullet proof trail bike that is just a little smaller than a full size. ...

    The TTR L has a 16" rear and a 19" front which has the same fine handling charastics.

    Ride it and enjoy it for what it is, a great trail bike.

  • low compression ratio
    By  (I am an Owner) on Feb 19, 2009

    30:1 would be better and r18 on the back seems like a good idea. the bore could be bigger but the overall performance is great
