    Hey there guys and gals! I am trying to find a picture of what a stock TW looks like with the plastic off (without tons of additional mods or grinding down the tabs). Do you have any?



    A secondary question: Is taking off the plastics and tank pretty easy? I have a 2007 and the blue isn't my thing. I plan on painting the tank, and either painting the plastics or ditching them. Any insight on how to make the TW look "bad ass" with minimal cost? Hello Kitty sticks may be the answer... maybe not.



    Thank you,

    Adam

    The tank comes off with a bolt under the seat. Don't forget to turn the petcock to "off" and disconnect the fuel line.



    Taking the front fender off is real easy, taking side covers off is real easy (one just "pops" off and the other has two screws)



    haven't had the rear plastics off but it looks really simple, maybe 4 bolts?





    as for how to make it look bad-ass, i'd suggest reading through a bunch of the threads here, as there are some downright awesome looking bikes around

    As seen in my avatar, I kept the rear plastic fender but ditched the side fenders. The rear fender keeps the stock exhaust clean looking IMO. Otherwise you get a look as seen below in the first picture from too much of the rear fender trimmed, or from it removed completely. Different exhaust and it's a different story, again IMO.



    Google or Yahoo images is your friend for pictures...search our forum as well for "hollow moddy" builds, it's the TW's equivalent to a bobber.



    From here: http://images.search.yahoo.com/searc...8&fr=yfp-t-701



    I found these (granted some have the extended swingarms and re-routed exhaust):



































    Sold bike.

    That makes them look so tiny. Cool though.

    I even found a pic of mine on there from some Suzuki DR forum?



    Anywho, I'd love to see more TW's taken THIS direction:

    I'd have trimmed the street tracker tail a little more to scale, lightened up on the fat front tire and done the exhaust a little differently but this is my idea of an attractive, practical, minimalist, light, fun bike without the expense of a Japanese style hollow mod, which really kinda morphed from this style in the first place.



    Most of the electricals can be hidden under the tail or the seat apron and the only real expense would be the tracker rear section and tires. The rest is mostly paint and paying attention to detail.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    That is what my TW looks like . I got a tracker style fiber tail but more low profile. I got my tail piece from japan but they have a guy in the U.S who makes a Universal one. They are about $80-$90 without the seat. I got mine used for about $38. Here is the U.S link HotGlassWing I noticed I haven't seen anyone else besides me with out a mud guard when they do a Naked,Tracker Style or Hollow mod. Its just a metal,plastic or acrylic plate cut to fit and attached with zip ties. Keeps from being kicked up toward the pod filter

    You can buy all the parts you need for a street/dirt tracker from Omar's



    They seem to be real good folks, and most of the xs650 guys swear by them http://omarsdtr.com/streetmain.html
