I'm a little confused. Are you running two sprockets up front and two in back? Do you have any pics?

Yep, then just move the chain from one set to the other is what I gather.

National deflector has been a great shield on previous bikes but I no longer have it, not interested in the mini "jimbo".
I have both Jimbo shield as well as a spitfire shield. Wrote a long writeup about it on the other site. PM me for a link.

Mine came with the bike, others seem to know the source but I didn't care. It was one of the main draws to this particular TW for me.



And here.

Duel sprockets

Think I posted pictures before but they may be many threads back. I do indeed have 4 sprockets. Two on the primary shaft and two on the wheel. All four are 'active', that is to say that they are attached and ready to accept the drive chain whenever I want to stop, make some slack in the chain and roll it (chain) over to the other gear combination.

going solo

Since it is unlikely I will be carrying a passenger, I decided to get my bike set-up for one of the new 4 gallon tanks, and as well, see if I could more my rear rack forward to reduce the over hanging weight. I was able to set-up the seat to afford me one more inch of leg room (I'm 6'2"). I made it so it will tilt forward for battery service. The seat is mounted on a rail that offers about 4" front to back adjustment. The fill-in trim beneath the seat is aluminium flashing. The seat was purchased on E-bay and I believe it is off a Honda sport bike, but I suspect many types could be made to work. Gerry

Your TWankenstein never fails to inspire Gerry =D
Are you thinking of the Bighorn rear to go with the 6006 front?

The Bighorn is a very nice tire, but I could not go that wide and still use my 'duel sprocket' set-up. For me, the gearing flexibility is more important. If I forsee a need for extra traction, I carry the chains. Gerry

Hey all,

Thought I'd let you know that I picked my new-to-me T'Dub last night!

A 2007 with 583 miles on the clock - In showroom condition!

Rode her 90 miles yesterday and just finished up the 600 mile service.

The only problem I am having is that after the ride - I noticed that my face hurts and is stuck in the smiling position...

Fun little ride!

hey all, poking around for info.

I've read all 52 pages of this post, so I think I should get some response.

Right now, it looks like the best bang for the buck on the TW is the 132.5 main jet, some sort of different muffler, and 47tooth rear sprocket. What kind of "comfortable" MPH gains are we talking? 60-65 comfortable on flats?

Also, I've noticed Colemanfu has got some less aggressive tires on his TW200, what makes are those? I won't be going offroad much, so I'd prefer less vibration, better on-road handling, and slightly higher top speed than you dirt guys.

What year is your Tdub? If it's pre-'01, it's the old carb, and a 132.5 will be way too big.
