HAAA!!!! ^^^ Blocked trail my ass!
That little red button is wired to a battery operated garage door opener which is hidden inside the fairing.

Nice. Did you build that out of a commercial bar clamp and aluminum angle? Here is mine, built from a milk crate:
No, I just built it myself with 1/4" plate. I used some Delrin I had lying around to line the clamp and protect the bar.
Emergency nut for what? It looks like a bicycle tire adapter.
As an older rider, uprighting my XT-225 trailside can sometimes benefit from a bit of leverage. Different from my TW-200, I had to put together a different lifting system. This may give you some ideas.. Take care --
oddly they work for me. Let me try this:
Found that I could better deal with the axle nut torque by modifying the stock axle wrench to accept the mating to my tire iron. This is part of my trailside flat repair kit.
Tried to look at your links but they just take a me to a page to create my own channel?
Same for me as well.
Don't think many motorcycles use an axle snail for chain adjustment anymore.
I find them a bit of a nuisance. This tool made adjustment faster and easier. The two forward cylindrical protrusion on the rod engage the holes in the snail. The third/last protrusion is a very strong magnet which holds the tool to the snail. With a strong connection and good leverage, adjustments are straight forward and the axle nut does not need to be super loose.
I loved the ones on my old Honda XL250R ...
BUT importantly they had a tang on them that you could easily slide an adjustable end wrench over and just bump both sides up one detent and rock on ...
Wish the Beemer had the same set up ...
I've collected all sorts of info for off-road/trail lift methods/tools and think the Dustriders motorcycle lift system (and clones - see post 1444/1456 in this thread) seems the best, but not the least expensive nor lightest/smallest. But seems to work better than others in more varied situations.
Why are there two sprockets on that rear wheel? More info please
Here's a little general background info: Dual Sprocket thread (tw200forum.com)
2 speed rear end?
I LOVE my snailadjusters, i much prefer them over the newer style.
ack. I don't like em'. They always move off the notch when I tighten the axle nut.
