I want to go with a rear LED and add it to the tusk harness on it wich runs from a small ni-cad pack by the airbox-It just runs blinkers-horn-and rear light then. I also want to add a Vaporstyle speedo/hourmeter. Im still looking for a light that will look ok on the BW fender and has the integral white down light for the plate.
DOT also requires the 2 rear facing red dots and 2 amber sides in front and 2 red side reflectors in rear. I Dont have those though..
gotta keep the po-po off ya..
Ive been given greif on the threads for plating bikes about running 2 mirrors and I like them and believe it makes it look more street to an officer going the other dirrection...takes 2 Min. to remove..

Some one else in Nevada with a bw and you sell!!!! Figures I suppose!

Anyone upgrade the stator on a 200, I wanna get as much out of the electrical system as I can for my next project. I am wanting to get a trail tech this fall and I really really want to put it a hid headlight!! But they take a big power. I am wondering how much I can pump up the juice on it. The headlight would be fantastic for the summer out here. Seems like I only ride at night and running it flat out is scary as shit with the bulb that in it now!

vroom_vroom,,
A few months ago I called Ricky Stator to see if they could wind a BW200 stator for more output and although it can be done they will not. Not enough need.
They referred me to a guy down south somewhere and im trying to find/remember his business name and I talked to him and he believed it doable but wanted one sent to him to make sure and get a fair quote.
I believe he can get 40 percent or more output compared to the stock winding.
I have a parts motor but haven't checked if the stator is in there to send him yet..if in a hurry give Ricky Stator a call and they will hook you up with him..

It has been a couple of weeks since Mr. Bigwheel has put this vid out. At the risk of self aggrandizing.... :


A friend of mine on a TW 200 and I did a little ride yesterday: (No major action, at least none was captured on video).

Go for a bigger tire! More top speed and it doesn't look goofy.

Welcome to the madness!!!

In this thread there is a lot of information about different tires and sizes people are using.
Many good options are available.

If you don't see a tire that makes you happy,I am going to be removing a stock tire from my bike. It is definitely used but may be better than yours if you are interested.

Welcome aboard, USAFAMMMO.

You have the original KT646 tire on your bike. It may be worn out, but that tire is worth between 2 and 3 thousand dollars on ebay. That is because they are no longer manufactured and there are no other 23' tires that seem to be suitable.

You have two choices in tire selection: 1.) A 22" tire or 2.) A 25" tire

There are not many choices available in the 9" rim size but there are enough to give some options.

What type of terrain and conditions are you going to be riding in?

This is a shot of one of my most recent semi-failed experiments:



That is a 26" front tire and a 20" rear paddle tire.

I needed it for one ride and it performed it's function, but I don't really recommend this setup.

The point is: even if you replace the tire with something that doesn't match the original sizes, you'll still have a weird-handling motorcycle.

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel
