Yellowstone Trail you say?? Gramp wrote this back in the mid-70's.




Now that's really neat. Thanks for sharing. They must of had a great time.

I don't see why it wouldn't work, but everything I've read says that for such a small motor, the round slide carb is just as good if not a little better (especially for throttle response) -- definitely not worth the expense to me. I'd much rather spend that money on a bigger tank and a Cyclerack instead!

Yeah, unless it's busted, keep the standard carb. CV is okay, but you can't beat good old direct slide carbs for throttle response (unless you have fuel injection, but I'm happy without it).

Stick with the stock carb, the cv carbs are temperamental.

I wanted to throw in that my '08 with the 47 tooth and 132.5 jet & pipe made a decent commuter a pretty good commuter. I wouldn't do the 47 if I had a ton of hills but I like the more relaxed 55-65mph cruising speed now.

Depends the speed you want maintain on hills.

With the 47 tooth 55mph in 4th gear is only 6620 RPM and it'll pull great and run there or even at 60mph all day long (60mph is only 7222, about 75% max RPM).

We run into that don't we?? I've finally got enough of them in the garage that the latest one went undetected for near a month.

"Now where did that one come from?"

"Oh, that old thing; it's been here......"

I didn't know there was such a following of this great little bike. I purchased one last year and have been loving it. I recently purchased a TTL125 for my daughter and we have been enjoying the N Michigan trail system. It's hard to believe such a simple small bike can be so much fun.

When I bought the TW in '06, I gave up a lot of horsepower but I gained a lot of BIKE!! Don't get me wrong, I still have the big bikes and they're still real, real fast but I love my TW! Fun little bike!!
