    So, I've got like 1300 mi on my TDub now, and an enjoying the bike immensely. I've done a few mods, like a 15t counter sprocket, Blaster shock, and supermoto front fender.







    I wanted to show here off, so let me know what you guys think...







    This is on my first ride. Like 5 mi on her here...













    After the mods... She sits good now.

    Your bike looks good. Resembles another bike in here...







    Did you keep the front forks stock? It looks like you have a little bit more travel.

    Darn near twins! Nice job 530-TW. Course I can tell them apart by the exhaust...unless 530-TW, you upgrade that too, and slight color difference on the graphics!



    I think I'd make a rear shock mod upgrade if the wife rode on the back more. If it would make a difference on how low it sat.

    I believe that 530's is a 2010...mine is a 2008.

    Also, did you get the kickstand length issue worked out? If not, you could send me yours, and I'll extend it for ya. Let me know, I'll PM you my address.

    Great looking T-dub! I like the way it sits with that rear shock.



    I also like that front fender but I have kept from doing it to mine because I know I'll be throwing lots more mud and debris on the trails here in Oregon...

    Anyone running a high front fender have input on this?

    TW kicks ass, just really sucks that it can't hold 55-65 in certain situations. when the hell are they gonna do a TW300-400!! Still lightweight, and plenty of power to easily hold 65 mph up a mountain with a top speed of probably 85-95. Perfect DS bike.

    530-TW ... How does your bike handle now with the steeper rake on the forks? I'm curious if it feels any different.

    I love the pipe. I noticed the additional power the moment I got on the bike.

    In terms of the rake, I need to even it back out with the hybrid forks. On the trail it wasn't as noticeable, but on the streets it is annoying. I just need a place to work on it with the right tools and ample space.



    DeMarko helped me with the kickstand and it works great.
