Hi!
I've been looking for a bike for my girlfriend for ages - she's pretty short and still learning and not comfortable yet on a bigger bike... Had her sitting on a TTR230 on the weekend which i thought would be great, but it was still too high. She sat on a large wheel TTR125 though and her face just lit up - size was perfect. YEEEOOOOO!!!!!

My QUESTION IS...
Is there a specific year or model TTR125 (with electric start) that is able to be registered? Or do you get a mod kit for the standard one or what? I've seen a bike with lights plate and all that on Bikesales, but only the one and the dealer i asked said they're not making them any more - does anyone know about registration for this model??? They seem like a great little bike!

It probably won't help you but I'm about to put some lights and so forth on my wife's 05 TTR125 to make it recreation registerable in Vic. Since it's electric start most stuff is pretty easy as there's a reliable 12V there already, just tap into it and wire up a switch to turn front and rear lights on and off.

Doesn't a vehicle have to have passed ADRs to be road registerable? I have no clue :)

FWIW these guys do a kit that might interest you.

My nephews mate has a ttr125lw that is complied.
Dont know if Yamaha still do them though.


Edit: Just had a look and they only complied them for a year (2004).

Unfortunately I don't think you can get the TTR125's fully regoed, only rec reg'd. But maybe you should look at the TTR230 and get it lowered?? You can do things like get spacers put in the forks, lower them in the triple clamps, cut out the seat a bit and get the rear shock worked on?? That way too she'll have more power than a 125 and won't outgrow it as quick!... Just a thought!!

Hey thanks guys - but what's recreation registration? Didn't know there was such a thing... it'll only be on state forest tracks and the likes anyway... but wanna be legal.

Rec Reg is a Victorian only thing.

Unfortunately REC reg is only for Victoria and as I understand Tassie. It's a cheaper rego for those that only ride out in the bush. No riding on main roads or built-up areas.

Bugger that's a shame - sounds like a pretty good idea. NSW laws are a pain in the arse sometimes...

I really hope i can find one and get it regoed. She was wrapped ay...
Thanks for your help guys. Anyone else got any info?

Hey asa - if they were complied in 2004 - will that mean all 'des TTR 125 LWEA 2004' models be rego-able? Where did you get that info from?... will do some looking round.

Cheers,

Why don't you try putting her on a Husky WR125? They're fully road legal; comply with the ADR.

If she feels that a TTR230 is too tall a husky will definitly be too tall.

but another bike to consider (if you cant find an 04 regoed TTR125) is Yamaha's crazy TW200, its registerable. I have heard people say they are actually quite good in the bush and can be heaps of fun. They have made them the same for years too, The 07 is electric start, but i dont know when they started putting the electric leg on.

It has to be that model (TTR125LWEA).

Looks like they made them in other years also.
Just found this on the Trading Post Website > TTR125LWEA (http://www.autotrader.com.au/iteminfo/adnumber_W642639142366_kw_TTR125LWEA_loc_locRZSQre gtAVSCdistRZSQAVSCstateRZSQ9AVSCregRZSQ_off_0_sect _Automotive_sort_otRZSQ1BJDZfdRZSQSearchDisplayPri orityIndAVSCotRZSQ1BJDZfdRZSQFirstPublished_sqt_0_ stpg_1_subs_Motor+Bikes_)
and it says its an 02 model.

Jayzus - she's a wild looking rig that TW! Thanks i'll have a look at them too.
Yeh i thought about the 125 2-bangers as well but they're all a bit high ay... and a bit toey too to be honest. Want something pretty docile.
ASA - thanks for that - saw that ad earlier today and contacted them - it sold on Friday.

I just finished the wiring and so forth on the TTR last night, it ended up being pretty easy, though I had to tap into the +12V as it comes out of the regulator, so the lights will switch on/off even with the ignition off which I'm not super happy with. But otherwise it was fairly simple, though I guess that does't help?

you could also consider the dt range! dt175 could be good?

My thoughts exactly

I've seen a DT200 around here a bit and it looks low, at least compared to my TTR. Might want to have a look at them

I just sold my wifes registered TTR125 about 2 months ago in Sydney. They were done by Yamaha in 2004. You need to look around interstate for them but delivery can be quite cheap

Had a look on trading post and found this:
YAMAHA TTR125 LWE 2003 model, full rego. RWCert. EC reliable bike, road/bush CE973, $4300 (0418)551811, Beaconsfield.

Mate, its worth a drive if you can make her happy. If she rides, you can ride, so follow every lead to get her on a bike.
