im seeing if i can maybe get 7,000 out of the tire. its almost out of knobbies but still has that raised section in the middle to wear lol! yea whenever i see a tw200 it makes me smile too, thats one of the reasons i tried building my big tw. it just looks non threatening and like its ready to go on a fun adventure with those big tires!

here we go again, im trying a new muffler its off a 08 yamaha wr450f, i did the internal mods to it and it sounds quiet but has some thump to it. my last muffler was too quiet for me, all i could hear was the motor and not the exhaust.got to test ride today.

Hey Kubiak,
Like others, I'm pretty impressed with your work
What did you do with the front of the side plastics? It looks like you just cut them off but
it's hard to tell from the pix. I just traded for a 650 dakar and have been playing with it some
Thx
Christi

I just sold my TW200 and miss it already! Oh why oh why did I sell?

Kubiak this bike is just outrageous! I love it. You do the best work with original ideas.
