You are too big for a TTR 125, both by height and weight. Since you are not racing, look for an older 4-stroke motocross race bike in the 250cc size. You can find used dirt bikes on Ebay, Craigslist, Bikefinds and CycleTrader. If you get the 250cc motocross race bike, the only thing you may have to do to the suspension would be increase the rear spring pre-load and maybe go one to two clicks on the fork compression damping. But since you are not racing it, you will probably not even have to do that. The reason I suggest a full blown motocross race bike is that they put out more power are lighter in weight and their components are made a little beefier. In other words, a motocross race bike can take more abuse than a trail bike.

Tub size should be 30-48qt for an adult ball python. You can go with 7-15qt for babies and juvies. When in doubt, take the hides and water dish to the store and look for a size that fits them comfortably. Remember to look for "Locking lids". Ball pythons are very adept at escaping and any sort of give on the lid could be dangerous. For the thermostat you can use ALife, BAH1000, Habismat... any kind really, as long as it works for you. The best hands down is a Helix, but if you only have one tub and don't plan on having more, the 30$ BAH functions well enough. What a T-stat does is monitor the temperature. You set it to a limit, say 90F, and when the heat mat reaches the desired temperature it will shut off (non-proportional) or gradually reduce the power to regulate the heat (proportional). Proportionals are of course more expensive that the ones that aren't.

The thermostat i would recommend is a 'Habistat Mat Stat'. (Type it in to Yahoo or Google and you will find loads of places that sell them.) I use these myself and they cost about £30 in the UK. ($60 ish?). The thermostat is simple to use, just plug it into the wall and plug your heat mat in to the extension connected to the thermostat. There is another long wire that comes from the thermostat, which has a probe on the end. The probe should be positioned inside the tub, just an inch above the heat mat. Then set the thermostat to the desired temperature (32 centigrade). It is important to know that the temperature at ground level is the most important one to measure when positioning your thermometers, so put your 'warm end' thermometer next to the probe. The purpose of the thermostat is to stop the snakes enclosure from overheating. It will stop the supply of electricity to the mat once the desired temperature is reached. The rest of your setup is fine.

First of all, do not get a ttr 125!! !! Wayyyy to small for you! I'm 5'8 and 125 pounds and its too small! Get the ttr 230( it might be a 250 idk) . Or get a racebike 250 which has all the power you need and more!

To properly set-up your new Turner's Fox Float air shock, first find your 'Ready to ride weight'. Your 'Ready to ride weight' is how much you weight with all of your . http://www.watchxmotogponline.com/

I can't give you the link to a site, but I can tell you that if you go to a pet store where they have ball pythons and ask what you need, the store owner will be able to tell you. It can be quite expensive. You will need an aquarium of course, a top or lid that is breathable, a light to keep the snake warm, a thermometer to stick in the cage to make sure he is at the proper temp, a water bowl, and some accessories so your snake has something to do. Also you will need some type of bedding for the bottom. All of this costs about 250 bucks (not including the snake). But keep in mind, as the snake grows, you may need a larger aquarium for him if you originally bought a smaller one. You may also need mite spray. Do not use tree limbs that you find outside for the inside of your snakes cage, they may have mites on them, and once your snake has them they are hard to get rid of and can even kill your snake! I had a ball python die because I couldn't control the mites I had so stupidly exposed him to for not researching better. A simple google search for "ball pythons as pets" will give you tons of information. Good luck
