    What's up! After reading the forum for a while I decided to pull the trigger on a 2003 TW200! It all started about a year and a half ago when I was visiting a friend of my wife's house for dinner. Inside their garage they had this mean looking bike that was sort of a hybrid between motorcycle and dirt bike. I had no clue what a TW200 was and really didn't even pay attention to the make model or tank graphics at the time....but I was in love and wanted it. The over all look of the wide tires and the dirt bike plastics lured me in. The bike looked both tough and functional. I asked them if they wanted to sell the bike and they declined. Fast forward a year...... About a month ago I was back at the same house and asked them if they had ridden the bike since I requested they sell it. They said no and I offered to buy again...this time they said YES! I picked her up with 2K miles for $1500 cash! She is near MINT condition....I love the colors scheme too....think it's the best color year for sure. This forum is unreal and the more I read about this bike the more i LOVE it! Next bike will be a dedicated trail bike...any suggestions?



    anyway here are the pics: I have added the Tusk hand guards, rear rack and bunji chord, and picked up a D606 and new rear stock tires, as well as new front and rear tubes. Every once in a while a get a pop from the exhaust after clutching in...it does this pop/backfire noise when shifting up and down but more so when down shifting....does this mean I should re-jet?

    Congrats on your new t-dub! She sure looks nice. But then again I don't think I've seen a t-dub that doesn't

    Nice bike.



    Installing handguards before you break a few levers is sorta cheating. So is installing a decent front tire before you've suffered for years with the stocker.



    Zupwiddat?



    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.

    I would wear out the stock tires first then replace them, but then again I am cheap.



    Good score. Congrats.
    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    Nice score on a very nice bike! As far as a dedicated trail bike, a TW200-what else? The fat back tire, and low first gear that everybody dislikes on the street come in very handy on the trails. If you haven't already, check out the trails TMDan has been riding on his TW here. Great move on the farkles, especially getting rid of the stock front tire. I really like the 606. Next thing I would get is a Ricochet skid plate.
    My handle is B-dub, I ride a T-dub, and drive a V-dub.
