keep us updated, thought i'd bump this one/

Will a 1985 BW200 Non-Electricstart CDI work on a 1987 BW200 Electric Start?

No more scratches nothing.
For the 200N we bought a new Cdi, next week we are going to try if she runs better than now with her mitsubishi cdi.

Very very nice , congratulations!

DO you know what are the specs for your rear wheel? Looks like a 25x12-9?

Can you post a closeup photo of your handlebar switch set up?

Röhrich- Nice work man! The Minions are a nice touch. I'd be interested to hear about and see your handlebar switch set up given we have better trail access in these parts with dual sport bikes.

Supertarmac,

The rear tire is 25x12-9 ITP Mud Lite, front is also ITP Mud Lite.

BWSwamper,

Here is a picture of the handlebars, the switches are from Domino Tommaselli.
They where on the Ecorider and we thought they are good so we also bought them for the big wheels and maybe the fatcat.

Regards,

Röhrich

Although I am not an expert on 200's by any means, I believe that the CDI's are different between the electic, and non electric start models.

The minions on the rear fender are a nice touch.

I ordered three sprocket adapters for my two 350's that I have, and one for the one that I have yet to find or buy. I received a personal email from Bill who created these, which was a nice touch! I look forward to receiving them.

In other news, I got my first ride in on my snowbike today. We received a foot of snow overnight so the opportunity arose to ride it down the streets in my neighborhood before the snowplows came out. The bike did well, although it did handle awkwardly where the snow was packed down and not powder. It the powder the bike came into it own and trudged thru places where there were two feet or more of powder without any issue. I could stop and start at will in the powder on level ground. I hope to get out next weekend for some further testing. My wife took some video, but it may take awhile for me to post it here. It is not very exciting anyway.

Cliff, It was nice to meet you and Mr. Bigwheel and the gang in Everett.
I am planning on being at the Desert 100 in 2014 with at least my 200's and hopefully a 350 to boot by then.
It would be great to get at least 10 or more bigwheel's together and do the ironman poker run on Sat. much less the race. That would turn more that a few heads there.
As I haven't had time to ride in 2 month's now and am Jonesin' for a spin I would enjoy seeing anyone on here on a bike of any kind at this point..
I think snowbikes are cool and would love one someday, mount Baker here seems to have a big following of them.

RW,

I also enjoyed meeting you at Endurocross. I also have not been riding much for the past couple of months. Hopefully the snowbike will get me out riding which will keep me in training for Desert 100. After the 1st of the year, my resolution is to get my #2 bike prepped for the event. It sounds as though there should be at least 3 BW's there next year at the 100. Who else is in?

Desert 100

Hi Cliff- already double-booked for the weekend of the Desert 100 in 2014, but definitely considering 2015. Looks like a great time!
