very minimal cutting, just the hoop that the skidplate hooks to and the lower engine mounting tabs.
the rest of the "fitting" was accomplished by spreading the frame just a little with a highlift jack.

now the new motor sits nicely in the frame.
this will change the head angle a little, but only a few degrees (I only spread the frame about an inch) and if that ends up being a big deal I can always put longer shocks in the rear end.
although since I have a larger tire in the back, this may bring me back to stock head angle(or close anyway)

now I just need to finalize the mounts and put it back together.

Nice post, keep up the good work!

Tw 200 footpegs

Did a little research on the tw forum and the stockers by all accounts seem to be the usual standard. in fact the tw crowd use IMS footpegs too. Some guys like these cheaper alternative (chinese) are these the footpegs u "trialed"

No, I am not sure. I was looking for a higher quality set of pegs after my cheap made in China ones failed, so I was willing to look at a more quality set of pegs price be damned seeing how important it is to not have your pegs fail on you/me.

hit my previous post link, are these the chinese one u had? they are like ims and of course larger than the stockers. again the tw forum seems to be happy with both with no complaints of failure.

Deaver, yes my failed pegs were cheap, made in China pegs made from aluminum. They were made for a TW 200, but I put them on my BW 350 in order to have the larger size that the TW pegs have. If they were made of steel, they might have lasted more than 1-2 rides.

yeah, I will paint all the new mounts and stuff.
the frame still has the factory paint on it in really good condition, and anything I do on my back porch wont be nearly as good as that, so I will leave the frame itself alone.

just started a new job, on top of college, so progress may slow a bit (I no longer have 8 hours in the middle of the day free) but I am going to try and have the mounts finished tomorrow night so I can re-assemble it on friday and take it to homer for a test ride.

I got the rear motor mounts built, and the front one mocked up yesterday.
should be pretty quick work to finish up..

That's going to be AWESOME!!!

If you have that done by Friday then you will have completed a non-stock engine swap in less time than it takes me to change a fork seal.

We'll have to go run that out to the Knik Glacier when it's done and properly baptize it.

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel

I'm a massive 3 wheeler nut, same with big wheels, this thread has my attention

yeah, I know about the early 250r being air cooled, but the only one local that was reasonably priced was not one of them.

hoping it stops raining tomorrow so I can get back to work on it.

not too much more to do, but without an indoors to work on it, I am at the mercy of the rain gods.

its on the list, but on the student budget it was either the new motor or an awning to install it under, not both
