Great work, I enjoy making stuff for my XT225 in the shed and am loving this build.

Thanks !!.
I love to build and next year I will be doing it in a brand new 16'x24' garage. !!.
Going to the monster trucks today , plus it's 32 degrees in the shed so I don't think much will get done today.

Can appreciate the effort and the homebuilt stuff. I don't have a shop or skills worthy of the attempt. The shock was mentioned before & I would encourage you to at least crack it open and change out the fluid. I did my DR650 shock at about 7000 miles and it looked like caramel colored milkshake in there. Much nicer ride after a good cleaning and new fluid.

Look forward to the progress!

I have a extra shock I bought, maybe I will have it rebuilt and slip in on later.

Had to mod the pegs , added a 1/8" plate so they sat straight.

Then I had to cut them so they would fold.

Oversized tw200 footpegs is a stright bolt-on. I think you perhaps need to drill a small hole for the spring in one of them, but thats it. Just FYI :)

Hey Northwest rider this is a great thread. I don't know if your headlight is the same size, but I have been seeing square LED headlights on big trucks up here in Alaska. A good way to reduce power draw for heated grips or gps. Other than that you do amazing work.

I'm not a big fan of LED's.The only thing I will run off the battery is a GPS,I hope to get some work done on the bike this weekend and on the road in 2-3 weeks.
