Sidewinder makes a really good chain. Krause Racing.
Answer the phone. Wider is better.
Can someone do me a favor and measure across the TW200 footpeg's inner pivot? The peg pivot of my XT600 footpeg is 7/8" wide and uses a 1/4" pin to hold the peg in place.
I'm trying to find a set of wide pegs, D2Moto has some TW200 pegs I'd like to use if they'll fit on my bike.
The TW 200, with a 55 tooth rear sprocket, is the best single track bike you could possibly have IMO! I have done some super gnarly stuff on mine. The tire is insane on the traction. Where skinny tire bikes spin and spin and dig themselves into a hole, the TW plods right on through! And its good for rocks and tree branches and stuff like that too because its less likely to slip sideways under you. Oh and of course you can't forget the super low seat height, which makes it really easy to dab a foot down if you need to.
Do a search on D2moto for "TW200" and you will find your pegs - no measurements needed! $14.95!

I've got an XT600 and need the measurement to see if the TW200 pegs are compatible.
It's a screaming deal, but there are no pegs listed anywhere for my XT600.
Sorry, I should have made that clearer in my post.
My new TW200 peg set from d2moto is scheduled to arrive today. I will measure them for you.
Thanks! I'm looking forward to it. I love my old '86 XT600, but the aftermarket pickings are slim.
0.916" wide and 0.285" hole for pin. Hope this info helps.
what he said...
Imagine what it would be like if you could get a trials tire for the rear. The trials tire on the rear of traditional bike opens up entire new realms of traction on all surfaces short of wet leaves and mud.
fyi - the d2moto pegs did not fit! I had to drill out the hole for the pin to a larger size. This only added about 3 minutes to the installation time. Still can't complain for $23 shipped.
I see lots of familiar posters here so guess I will just say hi and post a pic of my bike. Gerry
Looks like lots of good riding up in Paradise. I'm in Sacramento. You have any favorite trails to recommend?
Gizmow! The TW genius! Yay!
I wonder if Ben Perry has an account over here? He's a bit too manly for this board, I reckon.
While I'm here:
Just got an old Kolpin Jr 1.25 pack and bracket today. Has anyone had any luck installing them downwards? Almost like pannier brackets?
I'm 66 years old and mostly ride forestery service roads and occasionally mildly rough trails on a TW200. Is ther anyone that can tell me how I can or who could make it softer.
If you're talking about softness on the tuchus, then I promise you that purple sheepskin helps a whole lot.
Wolfjack.......In my opininion, the FIRST thing to go on the tw200 is the seat. I went with SargentCycle, http://www.sargentcycle.com/custserv.htm but there is http://renazco.com/ and a few others. Its well worth the 3-400.00 and it will fix your problem. You will think you are now riding a different bike.
Also, look into raising your bars up a little, you can go a max of 2" without any cable changes.
I highly recommend the Roxrisers http://www.roxspeedfx.com/
Stearns makes a seat cover that a lot of folks use. Cheap- like $17 something at Wally World in the ATV section.
It's not as plush as the sheepskin, and more than likely not as comfy as a $300-$400 seat upgrade, but it sure makes a difference. I've got one on my TW and it works great.
