Panniers the last three pics of panniers are all about the same. We are a special breed. Thrifty!

Anyone know if the stock cables will work with the Powermadd 2" risers?

From what I've read on the tw200forum they should work just fine.

Nice bike, I like the skateboard seat pan/fender.

No front brake though yikes! I have minimal stopping power with dual drums, I can't imagine running rear only - mine is practically useless!

Lol, agreed.

The rear brake on my TW is all but useless.

Yes they will. I have the Powermadd 2" on my TW.

Thank you!

Trying to decide if I want to go for Pro Taper ATV-HI's, or just add risers..

My concern with the ProTaper ATV is that all the atv bars I've seen have too much rearward sweep (for my taste). I haven't held the ProTapers, I need to stop by a shop and try them out.

The Tusk 30mm spacer have helped. I might throw on a taller moto bar and call it good. The spacers actually helped alleviate some back pain from being hunched over.

They do indeed have some rearward sweep, but I just rolled them forward to accommodate that, which I think effectively buys you a bit more height.

(Put them on my DRZ)

Side Stand Kill Switch

I completely unplugged the side stand kill switch on my buddy's TW. He says it dies when he puts it into gear. If I cannot find the original plug, how can I bypass or reconnect the circuit so he can ride the bike?

I unplugged it up near the harness. I'm trying to remove unneccessary junk. I thought I did the same thing on my TW but I might have just cut the cable without unplugging it.

Good point. One thing is for sure, any aftermarket bars will be stronger than the stock ones. I'm going the risers for now then eventually a new moto bar but the ProTapers would give you height and strength in one.

I love the fatbar look and have it on my DRZ-e and WR but I'll prob just stick with a 7/8" on the TW. Rox risers and a fatbar would be sweet but I'd rather put that money into an LED for better lighting.

I had to cut 2" off each end of my ProTaper ATV's to accommodate the
short cables on my '93.
