Extending the Economy

About two weeks ago, Kyra and I installed an assortment of stuff on the two Yamaha XT225's we'll explore Baja aboard at the end of October. With the help of my friend and former co-worker, Eric, we removed the 2.3 gallon factory fuel tank and installed a 4.1 gallon Clarke Racing unit in its place. We then upgraded the skid plate to something a bit thicker, installed stainless-steel rear racks and a pair of hand guards on each XT. We also changed the oil and filters, having added 800+ miles to our odometers the week prior. Aside from luggage, which we'll install a little later, our bikes are ready for anything Baja will throw our way... or so we hope. Follow the link for a few photos.
