You're welcome. Ken Sean sells a right side mirror for the Yamaha, so no adapter is needed.

Headed to El Mirage.....

.....but not with my LSR bike.

Got a call last night from that maniac, Kwizard.

He pulled it off! Showed up out of the blue from Texas.

The bike needs a few details attended to in order to pass Tech, but we'll be out there if anyone wants to get greasy.

I recently picked up this 1999 TW, I am having a great time with it.It is a lot of fun in the sand. I have one question. It is geared like a John Deere Gator, is this normal or do I have a larger than stock sprocket. I did not count the teeth but I will do that.

Stock gearing is 14/50 on U.S. models.

First is very low and a lot of people who use them primarily on the street regear them. I suggest you rack up a boatload of miles under all conditions before making any decision to go taller.

Takes some getting used to at first, but these things can handle a zillion rpm all day, every day. It's normal for them to sound like they're ready to hand grenade.

Not much power there, and if you want an all-rounder you can't go wrong with the stock combo.

Hey all,

I'm getting ready to load my T-dub onto the rear hitch carrier of my motorhome and head up to my buddy's ranch in Mendocino County. Anybody familiar with the area have any suggestions for some not-too-advanced trail riding in the area? Hoping my Clarke tank arrives before I leave. Homemade Bob

I have a cycleracks rear rack that I mounted a model im2600 pelican case on it using 4 ubolts. It works excellent. A ton of room and it fits perfect.

Zontar, I have the larger size off this box on my XT225. It works very well. On the XT it is mounted to a rack.

On Saturday I replaced the sprockets and chain on my '91 TW. All went well and she is running like a champ again. The countershaft sprocket was way past its' sell by date.

I concur. I really like my J.C. Whitney Travel Trunk.



I installed the metal mounting plate for this travel trunk onto my luggage rack.

Built a bigger rear rack.

I love my Cyclerack, but found it to be a little small for what I wanted to do so I built a new one that is longer and flat with flat bars welded in with holes every inch to mount to, I think these would also make adding planners easier, and had it bed lined. I added a plate that will bolt to the rack and hold an extra fuel tank that can easily be removed, I also mounted my tool tubes and tail light/license plate to it.

Life is like riding a bicycle, to keep your balance you must keep moving.
Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved. Hell, some of the places I’ve been there weren’t even roads!

Givi monolock E26 topcase on my TW. $64 shipped from Amazon. It's mounted to a factory rack. I put the rack in a hydraulic press to flatten the "lip" on the back of it so the Givi mounting plate to mounts flat. Has an led high brake light too. Works a treat and can be removed in about 10 seconds.
