Good luck with that. Cool bike!
I thought the Lizrdbrth cooler was "discontinued"????.
It is back in production and can be ordered on the TW forum.
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.
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.
Live life,be yourself !!!!.
You got that off of Facebook from the DSD page right !! hehe. It belongs to me.
I just need 2 more TW's. I gave mine to my oldest son.
Most peeps just pot a t in vent hose higher up.......need to be done on several other nikes also.....KLR DR AND SO ON
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.
You are a lucky man,great looking bike!
Yup I'm a admin on DSD.
Live life,be yourself !!!!.
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.
Seat Concepts seat, Cycleracks rear rack w/pannier brackets, Clarke XT350 Translucent fuel tank, 90` fuel filter, Cycra Probend handguards, DMO footpegs, Kick Starter, Shortened Tail Lights, Ricochet Skid Plate, High Fender Mod, Shinko 241 Trials front Tire, Stock Rear Tire, Upgraded chain, Procycle rear bracket and LED brake light, Jet Kit, Powermadd 2" handlebar riser, seat bolt mod with cables, Versa Pack Tank & Pannier Bags, $1.00 Dairy Crate, NelsonRigg mini tank bag, 14/47 gearing.
I will be happy to answer any questions regarding what I have done and post pictures if any one has any questions. And when I do finally do a ride report I will post a link here also.
Thanks, it is my only bike so I am making it as versatile as possible.
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?

Dan, the front rack is amazing! What is that?
That's the first time I ever heard someone say this to another man.
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?
