BACK to the VTR250 index!
- Not really a performance part, but I consider a bike without a centerstand to be a crime against humanity. So, I Mounted a centerstand to my 1989 VTR250
- Factory Online's VTR250 page, including their carb kit
- Galfer USA makes some bitching green pads (Green 1532) and Stainless steel brake lines. You can get the brakelines in a gorgeous Raspberry pink, too--matches the VTR beautifully. I ordered my stuff through hardracing.com and they had my stuff to me right quick. Now the VTR will stoppie ;)
- If there's anything that needs work on these, it's the seats. Sargent Cycle can do a great job of replacing the rock-hard foam in the stock seat.
- Fox Racing Shocks will rebuild your rear shock for you, for a chunk of cash. Bear in mind, a new OEM rear shock is $500!
- Progressive Suspension also makes new fork springs for the VTR250. MWheele says they're indispensable (as is a Fox Shock), and damn is he right. With the new springs in, the little VTR really glides over pavement irregularities. I'll be fitting a set to my VFR800 shortly as well. GET THESE NOW! You don't need to remove the forks--just open them up, pull out the old springs, use a Mityvac hand pump and suck out the fork oil. Then put in some nice new red 10 weight fork oil, and go to town. You'll need a short chunk of PVC to replace the stock spacer though. GO DO THIS NOW!
- Electrex USA has replacement stators, rectifiers and regulators. My stock stator is fine, but my Reg/Rec failed a few years ago. I finally swapped it out last summer, and WOW what a difference that makes.
- Air Tech Streamlining has nice aftermarket bodywork for the VTR250
