Good top speed
Affordable maintenance costs
Rear drum brakes are weak
Seat uncomfortable for long rides
This is my first bike, I was looking to get a Honda CRF230F but didn't feel comfortable with the height. The TTR has plenty of power, safe enough to learn on & I'm sure that as my riding improves the bike will continue to satisfy! The price was another huge benefit, straight off the shop floor for the same price as a 98 crf230f which had been rebuilt a couple of times. A definite winner :)
Perfect bike for a beginner, but I reckon I'll get a lot more fun out of it as I improve
None! It's a great solid bike, reliable, been around for a while...
overall great bike, no maintenence, bulletproof and enough power to keep up with the bigger enduro bikes. people see this bike and scoff at it but they dont know the true potential of it.
wow. this thing can really fly. has great power and i can whip the back wheel out pretty much wherever i want. corners and handles great in single track, and will handle small jumps pretty well.
I share the opinion of others when I say that those who say the bike is underpowered are the types who are probably used to seeing how fast they can go on a dead flat open piece of gravel on a CR500 or YZF450. This bike is made to go as quick as you want in tight stuff - where real riding is all about. It handles, is simple and cheap to maintain and has enough low end grunt to climb the nastiest of hills with ease. And, it'll still be running reliably long after the YZF's and CRF's have been re-built 3 or 4 times at a cost of thousands!!

Know better, choose better.
Iv resently bought a TTR230 and when it comes to power i dont see it having, the top speed it reaches is 80km.. thats on a flat road if theres a bit of a hill it'll slow even futher down. The first bike i ever own was a klr 250 and it went faster, it was an 1988. So if anyone can help me, if there is any posible way to speed it up. all ears.
Sturdy bike good for out bush.
Not very fast.
Questions & Answers
How much does it cost?
I have a 2019 Yamaha ttr230 and after an hour of trail riding the bike cuts out and wont start after an hour or so.(it has been awhile since an oil change) does anyone know how to fix this problem or cool it off faster besides an oil change?
I have a ttr230 2014 model and when i adjust the chain it is fine but when i go for a ride one side pulls and the chain comes out of adjustment how can I fix this?
The Yamaha TT R230 sports a single cylinder, 4 stroke, air cooled 223CC motor. This is a carbureted motor which means this is a simple and low cost fuel feeding system, helping with a low cost of maintenance.
You also have an electric starter, 29.46cm (11.6 inches) of ground clearance, front disc brakes, and rear drum brakes. Standard tires include MX-Style wheels and tires, which means the TT R230 is ready to head off-road straight from the factory.
And for additional protection, you have rubber tubing protecting the suspension forks and seal, and grippy foot pegs that are designed to keep your boots secure to the bike in slippery conditions.

- Basic servicing is easily carried out by one’s self if you live in a remote area.
- Front light position angle hits too high off the ground, requiring a custom bracket to bring the light position further down to increase ground visibility

- Seat can get uncomfortable after a day of riding.
