yeah this setup wouldn't be the best for woods riding, this bike spends most of its time though in the open deserts of Eastern WA and Eastern OR so the extra width isn't a problem. You can always remove the bags if your going to do a day of tight single track.

They are pretty handy around town also, my father rides it quite a bit locally in the summer.

We had some rain last few days... cleared up yesterday so we took a trip over to Hollister Hills. Didn't take many pics at all but it was muddy.

The parking lot.... Before the mud.... Deadbird's T-dub and a few other friends too.

Soupy Mess!

Take a picture of how thick the mud is...

Not easy to get through with the tires this full of MUD. Fun trying though!

Cool2

I have read the threads on carb re-jetting and it sounds like it might definately improve performance. Has anyone just bought a bigger and better Carb that would perhaps cost more, but would give a noticeable improvement? Make and model would be appreciated as well as if I am perhaps barking up the wrong tree again!

Thanks in advance, Surf

I really am content

I read your RR when you first put it up. The stuff of legends.

Back to my quick carb question........I have read that the stock bike comes with a 126 main jet......I have read where some replace it with a 128, 130 132......My question is what determines what size to go with? I run from sea level to as high as the Blue Ridge Parkway which is about 1 mile high.
Can anyone point me to the best one to go with?

Thanks in advance, Surf

tpar 1220,


I cannot join that site......its been abandoned by its administrator......If you are already a member then apparantly you can sign in.....but newbies like meself cannot join......Thats why I have come over here where its friendly and civil!
I have been able to do searches, and I have received some helpful answers to questions......What I was hoping though was.......that those who ride this Blog can avoid being so cheap on making mods...Not that I have any money to waste or burn, but I have learned in life, that its less expensive in the Long Run, to do it right and go ahead and spend the appropriate funds for an upgrade. It saves one alot a frustration, and especially when its a motorcycle, it can be much safer and more fun.
Yes the tw200forum is a great site, but something unfortunate has occured, and it appears to have died.


Back to the question anyone?

SurfsUP!

TW200 Forum

I'm having the same experience with the TW200 Forum site as Surfn54. Does anyone know who the admin is for that site and can provide a contact email address? Or can you contact the Admin and report here what the problem is with joining that site?

Has anyone moved the Choke from the side of the bike to up on the handlebars near the ignition key? Looks like a good idea? Any hassle in doing it?

Just want to keep the thread alive
