The kick start parts can be retrofitted to my 2008 TW200 for around $300. I hope to have the Indiana license plate by the end of January. The new set of off road rules and regulations in Arizona have kept it in the garage until I finish the paper work.

I think the bike is geared low (slow) enough in first gear to haul me around. Remember we are talking a 196cc motor that generates maybe 14 horsepower. Folks have burned up these engines thinking they were highway cruisers.

If I feel the need for speed, there are several bikes in my stable that can definitely get the wind blowing in my face.

It does what it was designed to do. Be a good trainer and "just for the fun of it bike".

YMMV
