TW200 Rally

I'm putting together another TW200 rally in the Smoky Mountains again this year. Details are posted on the TW200 forum.

Time for a new battery

Any battery recommendations?

As much as I enjoy bump starting the little TW every other weekend when I'm out in WV where it sits, I'd like to replace the battery/buy a tender as well.

I put one of these in my wife's TW200 about 3 years ago. It's still going strong! Turns the motor over way better than the factory battery ever did.

The battery is smaller and lighter than the stock one. I used some bits of foam to fill the extra space in the battery box.

I do keep in on a battery tender in the winter.

Yup, like Yooper Bob said. Any YTZ7B or YTZ5B battery will drop right in there with some space left over. Added bonus, they'll be sealed AGM batteries and you can toss the vent hose.

This. Right here.

Getting air? Pshaw. If I "get air" on my TW, something has gone terribly wrong. Hitting tree branches and shrubbery is another matter, though. So yeah, I got the Tusk guards. Scratched the heck out of my bars before I found a good way to put them on (never put that sort of thing on a bike before), but they're great.

I bought a Motocross YTZ7S battery for my Zong; I like it a lot. This particular battery is manufactured by Yuasa, in Japan, but rebadged as Motocross for sale in North America.

Our shop sells the BikeMaster Trugel battery for the T-Dub for $65.00. The TruGel is a fully sealed battery that wil never leak, even if cracked or if you go crazy and drill a bunch of 3/8 inch holes in it. We had a demo with 5 holes drilled in it that still worked.

While they aren't made in Japan, they do carry a full 2 year warranty versus the 1 year Yuasa YTZ models and 6 months for most other batteries.

Food for thought..

New footpegs.

I've been testing these new TW-specific footpegs from DSO Specialties for a month or so. Aside from everything else you'd want in an offroad peg, they solve the TW's "staggered peg" arrangement which some of us find so annoying.
