Trs mods. what have you done to yours

Recommended Posts

 

I am really, really  pleased with my TRS 250 RR 2017

I learnt on facebook a useful mod and thought it might be useful to create a list for you/share ideas.

I will kick of with what has been done to mine. 59 year old, Clubman/Sportsman level riding.

  • A thicker head gasket to make it softer to ride and easier to start
  • Something in the clutch to make it softer.  These first two mods are standard on the 2020 TRS One R  I believe? and were done by a previous owner.
  • A small plate down near the right hand footpeg.  This stops my foot snagging on the bolt heads/frame when searching for the brake pedal
  • Drilling out the swinging arm drain holes
  • Greasing the chain tensioner bolts
  • Fitting an aluminium tickover adjustment screw
  • Clean and lubricate and grease everything!!
  • When refitting the air filter, first remove the bit of plastic around the inlet hole
  • make sure the rad coolant only just covers the fins inside (syringe and plastic tube)

not a long list, anyone done anything else?

Not exactly mods but I did also add

  • Full length fork guards
  • Bar raisers
  • Backed of all suspension settings (I am 70kg)
  • Repair /upgraded the water pump shaft and seals.

Does anyone have suggestions?

I find the choke awkward to use.

cheers

Hi
I have a 300 one from 2018
I have mounted a long/slow throttle grip (motor a little too strong)
Power ist better and very simple to handle, but il dont realy like the feeling of this slow trottle. 
now i think to mount a decompressed cylinder head but than with the short throttle ...
good idea or better to let it like now ????

Added a fuel filter

Changed the hard fuel vent pipe for a softer rubber so that it came off and on easier

Fitted a washer from splatshop under the needle clip so it's now halfway between 4th and 5th groove on the needle. 

Renthal bars

S3 steel pegs.

CSP fuel cap

That's about it.

 I'll suggest that one of the better mods for an older TRS is the sidestand from the new RR/Gold models. It is so nice not to be fighting to get the bike to stand up every time I get off the bike.

I like this idea about the stand from motivita.

My friends laugh at how often they run to save mine going over.

Hello Graham, which bar raisers did you use?

Planning on buying some for my new 250RR.

Hi Cooter 78,

 

I just read else where that someone said do not bother fitting bar risers if you want to ride trials

I ride trials, love it, I'm only 5ft 7inch and theoretically I should not be using them. 

I am am happier with them, will never be a top level rider, but riding at least 3 or four hours a week I get less thumb and wrist ache.  Arthritis is creeping up.

I tried to leave them off when I changed bike but I soon put them back on.

Hi there about this bit of plastic at the inlet arte you referring to the "Reed" which can can pivot up and down?

What is the purpose of this bit tho,anyone can explain it to me? 

On My trs I don't have this part bought it as second hand...

there is a slot/ hole where the air comes into the airbox, on mine, there is an additional piece of plastic that forms a sort of spout that smooths the flow of air into the airbox and over the filter. 

it's almost directly in thy way when you want to slide the filter in and out. hence I remove it to work on the filter.

I can imagine someone binning it, although that's not a good idea
