SOLD - FS: TTR125E

Post by Marylander » Sun Nov 01, 2020 9:34 am

I've got a TTR125E that I just pulled out of the shed that I'd like to sell. I just threw the battery on the charger and will get it cleaned up and find the paperwork but figured I'd go ahead and post it up. I'm thinking $900 for DAMN folks.

The bike has been out to a couple DAMN rides with Janis. It's a slow starter and has been from new. A fatter pilot jet ought to take care of that but I never bothered. Once it's warmed up it starts quickly and runs well. It comes with a set of knobbies on it and a set of trials tires/tubes too.

Here's a quick and dirty pic (with battery pulled out). I'll get some more taken later.

I rode it thru a section of Mtn Ridge single track that weekend. Pulled me right up some of those steep climbs.

Slightly interested if you still have it. The girlfriend mentioned maybe wanting to mess around on a dirt bike recently.

I still got it and have a carb "rebuild kit" that I still haven't put in. Feel free to borrow it if you want to check her interest...

I'm finally getting serious about this thing... I just put the jets from a rebuild kit in (needle clip seemed iffy/loose so I didn't bother with that), replaced the spark plug, and put new gas in. I'm thinking the choke circuit is still clogged as it won't run for more than a second and accepts no throttle. So, I've got the thing soaking in some carb cleaner. Here's hoping that does the trick. I'll probably grab another battery tomorrow as the one in there is tired.

I have one size up pilot & main jets in mine and its better but hardly great. In the cold, the easiest way I can get it to start is to lay the bike on its side for a couple seconds (flood the carb), stand upright, and then crank. Learned this on ThumperTalk IIRC. This usually has to be repeated a couple times until its warmed up. My choke works but its just not enough in the cold.

Funny, I heard the same thing about starting the WR. Also was supposedly something about getting the gas that was in the carb out of the carb to get fresh gas into it.

@marylander where is the bike located? I'm definitely interested. If it starts easy once warm, is electric start, and doesn't immediately flood like my son's XR100, this could be perfect, especially since I can get the TTR125LE tires later and give it another inch of seat height.

I have a TTR 125 and it cold blooded but since I went to straight AV Gas I just pull the choke and no throttle, couple seconds of crank and fires then just let high idle warm till will idle with no choke. Never bothered trying to develop more power but does manage to haul me around the trails just fine. The key for me is do not put fuel in them that can and will go bad.

FWIW, Not trivial to just swap L wheels. The rear swingarm is different (but I don't know how different) and the shock is not only different but a different length IIRC (though I could be confusing KLX110 vs 110L differences on the length.) The front is drum vs disc brakes so you need all new front end. Easier/cheaper to sell when that day eventually comes and find a LE.
