Changed the oil for first time @ 179 miles - didn't have as much metal floatin around as some posts I've seen, surprising since I haven't babied her. Was able to reuse the filter and had a quart of 10w40, so it doesn't get much cheaper than that.

Also just ordered some grip puppies for less than $9 shipped.

Never really noticed the small grips until I got the micro pegs replaced, funny how that works lol

I got some Grip Puppies for my Burgman - Gel Grips for the Dub.

Anyone else have any issue with the Clutch cable stretching out - 5Kmi. I have adjusted the clutch at the lever as well as by the case and it is currently at the farthest adjustment but is sloppy and loose as hell but engages at about the right spot. When I bring up the slack, it won't even engage at all - lever all the way out. Think its time for a new clutch cable. Oh my spring at the case is set in the propper groove too...

I give in... Just got off the phone, I'm trying to strike a deal on a 2003 TW200 just like my old one. The lure is just too strong

Grab some Maxxis 130/80-18 while you can(discontinued) for when the front tire starts to wear

Welcome back to the DubClub

Has anyone ridden one of these guys in snow yet? I have been thinking of getting one for just that purpose, if they do really well in mud i bet some studded tires and you would be good to go...

I rode mine all year in the snow and ice. Here in VA we don't get too much of either (compared to the Northerners). I aired down the tires to about 12 psi and just took my time. I had stock tires and it got a bit squirely here and there at intersections and in corners. I think a better set of dirt tires or preferably, studded tires, would be super fun in the snow. Fortunately, there isn't much torque to get you in trouble from the start.

i have a separate set of wheels/tires for my KTM 250exc that i have studded. this winter we were riding on frozen lakes just goofing off. it was a blast but the ktm overpowers the studs way too easy in the corners.

i can't help but think that the TW would be awesome with studs. perhaps i will try to find a spare TW wheel set and stud the stock tires for next year?

riding on frozen lakes is SO MUCH FUN that it's worth spending a few hundred for only a 4-5 rides per year... but i'm in no rush to ride on the road simply because of other drivers

well i rode my 250 Ninja a few time this winter and the only problem i had was with street tires refusing to clear out snow and slush. So im thinking another small bike only dual sport style is in order, and the TW200 just looks too rediculous not to own...
