    Nice! Where did you get the oil cooler, there is no way that you got it from the Dodge dealer for $10!

    Salvage yard. Lots of good choices there. PS coolers are not a very popular selling item, you may even get a better price.

    OK guys I used the Exile Chopper horn relacation kit (as well as relocating the coil) for my Fatboy and was thinking about slapping the Harley horn on my TW.

    I never could understand why HD would so proudly stick the horn on the left side of the motor covering up those huge pretty jugs - so I yanked it off and relocated it behind the rear splash guard. I had to use a small horn and have the stock one sittin on the work bench. Now the TW horn is pretty good - I even relocated that one to the front. Is it me or do all these company have the horn issues - I bet it's me.

    What do you think about the TW running a larger horn?

    I like to reuse parts - I have my old VMax pegs on the TW for a bit wider foot print. I wonder if the horn will bolt right up?

    I don't know if it will fit, but I am interested in a louder horn. It's not real high up my priority list right now (a 47 tooth rear sprocket heads my wish list), but I'm considering it.

    But I want something scary loud...

    I am running one of the FIAMM horns from Autozone. It fell off and melted onto my muffler during a crash but I just put some gum on the hole - good as new!

    Got a "low tone" one at Advance Auto, could be a lil louder but better than the "excuse me, lil sissy bike coming through" horn it came with.

    What's up over there?
    I've been trying to join, but get no reply. I recently picked up a 97 Tdub, and a complete, running 80ish XT250. I would like to pick the brains of the experts over there about swapping the 250 internals into the TW.

    In order for the turn signals to function on my TW, if I replaced the stock rear turn signal with a 12 LED replacement, will that function the flasher mechanism? Is there some specified current that the lights must draw? Does someone have experience in this? Thanks.

    Having read one too many threads on just how fun the TW200 is, I broke down yesterday and answered the siren's call: I pick up my new 2009 TW this weekend!:clap

    Thank you all for the great info

    Anyone ever feel like the rear tire starts to float about halfway through a big puddle?

    Nah. The bike weighs 270# dry, and if that's not enough ballast, there's me on top... and I'm not as light as I used to be. :(
