Finally figured out how to show pics.

Can anyone with a TM tell me if there are 25mm holes in the bottom of the airbox?

I'm in the process of changing colour to white.

First TM's into the country were 1992 models before the ISDE in Cessnock.
Pink came in 1994. 20 Pink TM250's were brought into the country.
As Spac said compliance started in 1997 and every customer was offered the ability to compliance there bike for a very modest cost.
Oh and no TM is anything like a KTM .

Very cool to see a pink bike so tidy TJP!
Yes the airbox has holes in the bottom as standard.
Would be cool to do a reverse retro, white blue bike like the current TM, Back to the future.

I've been for a few rides now, now everything has been sorted out.

For a bike that's almost 19 / 20 years old I'm really impressed with it.
Suspension is amazing, nice and plush. Very stable and tracks like its on rails.
Rode a mates 2008 RM250 and my TM felt just as good (maybe biased about that though). Also rode a KLX450 with KX front end and I wasn't impressed at all, front end felt very unsure and ready to flick out at the slightest excuse.

Running a RM250 NEDW needle gives really nice power delivery, nice torquey bottom end and smooth transition to top. Only concern is its bit blubbery off idle but it clears up real quick.
But I must admit - it is fun having that powerband surge, which makes life interesting. For now I'll stick with the smooth delivery.

I'm actually changing the colour scheme and trying to make it retro modern i.e. white and blue. I'm just not man enough to wear / ride pink (isn't that what the Bundy Rum ad said?)

Overall I'm happy with the bike.
