    Hi guys, thought I'd join up.... as to be honest I wasnt sure where else to go.



    I've just bought a very cheap and not so cheerful AG200, and I'm trying to find out a bit about it, technical help etc, but there doesn't seem to be a specific forum or much mention of them elsewhere on the net.



    I understand the TW shares the engine so I guess this forum is a good place to start.

    Engines are a bit different



    2007ish and newer AG's have the better six speed tranny but lack the extra long sprocket jack shaft the tw has for the big rear tire.

    It's definitely not a pretty bike, but I'd always fancied tarting up an old trail type bike and it was cheap.



    Only has 5 gears though.

    Now hold on, I see some advantages. The seat looks comfy, and there is no pretense that it is a "two up" bike, hence the lack of passenger foot pegs.

    The AG is a "farm bike". In many ways it has features which make it an upgrade from either a TW or an XT, to which it is slightly more closely related.



    Kickstands on both sides (one side adjustable so it can be used to lift the bike for tire changes, a la crutchjack) STOCK, handguards STOCK, decent seat STOCK, front and rear racks STOCK, serious engine protection STOCK, chaincase which means chains could theoretically last forever, STOCK, etc. etc. We never got them in The States.



    They were built for farm and ranch work, but danged if they wouldn't come close to off-the-rack ideal choice for an RTW bike. All of the Japanese manufacturers have made their own version of farm bikes over the years in various markets and all were similarly equipped.



    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 thing is fugly as all get out... and I love it.

    I'd miss the fat tire, but I see a lot of stock upgrades I like...



    Can you load some pics of your model Pommie?

    Sure we'd all like to see more.

    Well



    I think you are looking at an Asia commuter vehicle with rural areas in mind



    The seat looks 1000% better than ours like to see if that fits



    in Vietnam that would be a 5 passanger pick up truck



    I'm assuming that AG is agriculture... guess

    My guess is that it would not fit. even if the bolt holes match up there is not way that it would attach without removing the side panels. and the gas tank is much different so the front may bolt on to the AG as opposed to the suction cup on the Tdub.
