Great looking trail, someone needs to bring a chainsaw. My cousin has a little 14in one he carries with him for the early riding season. He has a action packer on the back and he cut a slot for the blade cover in the side so the main saw is in the box.
Also saw a pic of someone that built a front rack to carry a small chainsaw on his TW.

PostSubject: My TW   Wed Dec 24, 2008 8:43 am

Here's my rig.. Gerry

Gizmow with his friend the self timer.

Dork bike in meadow. Just had a visit with another dirt explorer heading into the hills.

Gizmow's stealth exhaust. Reduces the 'bark', but you just hear more engine clatter.

Gizmow's communication system. Cell phone signal amp, CB and more 'stuff'.

Guess this is Gizmow's navigation console.

Finally, maybe. Gizmows safety systems, duel horns, flashing headlight, and pulsing brakelight too.....
What many of the "OLD TW guys" know, is mrgizmows bike always seems dirty, though is does get washed from time to time. As you can see, I seem to go in for the 'Dork' look. It works for me now but only because of years of Dorkieness training. Gerry

PostSubject: quiet exhaust   Wed Dec 24, 2008 5:59 pm

Seems at 60, I am opting for slow silent travel. Not worrying much about loosing a pony or two, I went about seeing if I could quiet the exhaust a bit more. Seemed to help some and as a plus, it feels like I got a bit more low end, but then, that could be more in my head than at the rear wheel. Gerry




Here is the 'silencer attached to the end section of the stock TW muffler.

i understand, i went from having aftermarket pipes on my bikes to the stock pipes. and these days, i wear ear plugs as well.

i was surprised how loud the tw was, even with original exhaust, it's a good bit louder than my klr. such a little motor, with a tiny opening in end of muffler...but still loud.

Boy Tpar, that was a serious aventure. I now have so much 'stuff' on my rig I suspect it has gotten pretty heavy, guess if push came to shove, I could take things off in order to lift it over stuff. I carry a folding pruning saw that has helped me cut a trail thru low hanging branches. Gerry

gizmo, i carry one of those folding saws as well, but would have taken all day to cut thru those trees...was faster to just lift em over. the bigger bikes that is, i rode the tw over em with no help...but snagged the shifter lever on the tree and bent it, didn't find that out till we left, after everyone was over....and i couldn't shift. no big deal, bent it back and carried on.

i was nervous the whole time there as i had the factory skid plate on, and this place is very rocky, constantly had rocks bouncing off underside of bike. when i got back, ricochet had a skid plate available....finally, i bought one and is on bike now...pretty sweet.



also found that tractor supply has a universal extended atv shifter that fit tw perfectly, gives me a little more room while using mx boots.

Tim- What's the part number & price for the shifter. Was it in stock at T.S. or did you have to order it?


Thanks, BillMichaels

bill,

it was the only one they had in stock. i wasn't looking for one either, i just happened to walk by it, it looked like it would work...so i took a chance...and it fit! less than $10. sorry, don't have part#, like a knucklehead...i didn't save package. it was in the atv section.

Also take a look at the larger foot pegs. BIG difference. Much more comfortable. I bought the "IMS" ones but allot of guys get the ones off of E-Bay.

took a spin in town for some stuff today, stopped at tsc, they had another one in stock.




sat the original shifter on top of tsc shifter for comparison, couldn't get original shifter all the way back due to engine case, so just keep in mind...the tsc shifter is prolly 1/4" further back the original..




it does give quite a bit more room, but tip doesn't fold, then again, neither does original.

hope this helps.

You are definitely going to like the wider pegs.
I got the D2Moto pegs... it was like installing floorboards!

Geez I wasn't sure what to think, the TW200 forum alive and well? Some of us still check in so if you post, "we will answer". Gerry

I also replaced my shifter. But after reading about someone with a nonstock shifter breaking the shifter SHAFT and not just bending the leaver. I went back to the stock shifter. I would rather just bend the stock shifter back and continue on then be pushing the bike.:) I have bent my shifter several times due to the low height of the TW. JMO

Hey Tracy, good to 'hear from you. Guess with the new baby, Nate may not have lots of extra time to ride. Looks like you guys have a bit of snow still at elevation. Do you have any new pictures? Gerry
