    For anyone else interested, here's the link to get an oil cooler with prices and ordering info. Everything is in stock and ready to ship.
    http://tw200forum.com/forum/performance-customization/16597-sale-oil-coolers.html

    He ships the parts, with an invoice in the box. Either send cash, check, or MO back.

    You can order the complete kit, or the pieces "a la carte" if you'd like to source the mount, fittings, hose yourself.

    I like that rig - what skid plate is that? - also assuming that is a clark tank right?
    I have same cyclerack for my TW - how do you deal with the saddlebags swinging back and forth - I have considered adding some tabs to bolt on lower bars to stabilize mine - that way I can take them off if not using bags.

    Post more on your bike or a link to a RR if you have one. Inquiring minds need to know!
    Thanks for sharing.

    The skid plate is the Ricochet brand.
    The tank is a Clarke xt350 4 gallon and it does require modification to the rear tank mount and seat.
    ( the mod can be found on the TW Forum. )
    I use the Cycleracks pannier supports and actually hang my bags from my dairy crate to raise them up for water crossings, then secure the bags to the supports via zip ties if I do not plan to remove them for the trip, or straps if I do plan on removing them during a trip ( for security/theft ). I do not carry a lot of weight in the pannier bags so having them ride higher up is not a big concern for me. I tried making my own supports, but I do not have an extensive tool shop or access to the materials that some riders do. It ended up being cheaper for me to just buy the supports from Cycleracks.

    This is what I have done to my TW so far. It is my only motorcycle so it is being made into a multi-purpose bike with some future adventure style riding in mind.

    I thought something looked different (don't remember seeing those bulges on the TW Clarkes )

    Thanks for the fact sheet on you scoot. Very informative.
    I "WILL" be getting a ricochet skid soon for mine also.


    Btw what's DSD? I don't face so forgive my ignorance it's probably a common thing for Facebook folks?

    The front rack is from TCI Products - tciproductsusa.com. The mounting system allows me to use my windscreen with or without the rack and the rack with or without the windscreen. They can be purchased separately also if you only want the mount & rack or mount & windscreen.

    Anyone have experience toying around with the rear spring?

    I saw the stock shock actually does have a preload adjustment, though you have to remove the spring to do so- does raising the spring seat to the higher clip make much of a difference?

    Otherwise I was looking at the pro cycle replacement springs. I'm about 170 in gear and don't carry luggage, but ride fairly aggressively and have felt the rear shock bottom out pretty harshly a few times now. My question is how does the 12kg progressive stock spring compare to a 15kg straight rate spring?
