Ordered me some goodies and was surprised that newenough (love em!!) has dual sport stuff, got me a cool rack en route and some other stuff. I wanted something a lil more than the oem rack but not as big as the cyclerack, it looks to be perfect.

Can anyone point me to the best one to go with?

Thanks in advance, Surf
I put in a 130. Good performance improvement in my riding area (west. NC) 1,500 ft to 5,000 ft in elevation.

The stock TW jet for countries other than the US is the 132.

Here's an excellent tutorial on installation:

BTW, the TW200 forum now has a moderator and is more civil. Try registering again. The forum software is somewhat flakey, and seems to work better with the Firefox browser than IE.

This page needs more pics.......



The Tdub is a fun bike but I haven't put enough miles on it yet. What's the hand guards of choice for the TW ? BarkBuster????

I'm using Emgo Pro Guard... less than $50. from Dennis Kirk, but many others will fit.

Thanks JB44, I'll check them out. Nice rack by the way and does that after market exhaust enhance the performance at all?

Not that I could tell. It just made more noise. It was so loud I only kept it on for one day, then sold it to another TW'er. YMMV

Surf. Every bike is different enough to justify picking up a few jets consecutively. A 126 is stock. It wouldn't hurt to get a 128/130/132. And if you are going up in elevation it might be good to have a 124. With the TDubs low power output, elevation changes affect it quite a bit. Subsequently, there is no "1 size fits all" jets that will take care of all elevations. On the good side, they are really easy to swap out... only a few dollars each and they're small so easily taken along. Most likely though, you will find one that just runs the best for most of the riding you do, and then compromise on the other times. If I had to guess for your elevations you mentioned, it would probably be the stock or 128 if you haven't done any mods to the intake or exhaust.

Hey thanks owtcast........I really appreciate the "no bull" response.
I didnt realize that they were so easy to switch out. Since so many folks seem to want to re-jet their TW carb, mine is a TK,03 BIKE....still stock on the engine, It seems that perhaps one could just buy a bigger and better carb, but I have not heard of anyone going that route. Maybe because it really isnt neccesary. I know some may say" just shutup and ride your bike!".......................But, Its fun to tweak around with motorbikes.
