    Talking New Member Registry

    Hello,

    This is my first post and not sure if there is a section for "new member" like in some other forums. I had never heard about the TW200 before but I'm so glad I found them. While looking for a trail bike to take on camping trips a couple weeks ago I found some videos of them and couldn't wait to get one!

    Anyway, there weren't that many used ones available so when I saw this clean 2012 with around 3000 miles I had to jump on it. Wife not super happy about me getting a street legal bike but here it is.

    Just unloaded it from my truck and can't wait to ride it. Sorry for the dark picture.

    Not sure if this is how you post a picture.

    I've approved it, but it's still not showing although I was able to view it the first time. Try editing your first post and re-post the pic and let's see if it's ok then...

    Looks like it's showing fine - nice find

    No worries about where you post an introduction - it's all good - we check for 'gators on a regular basis

    Congratulations on your new TW! Looks like it has a couple of nice upgrades too (skid plate, larger foot pegs).

    Welcome from Vancouver Island!

    Thank you. Yeah hadn't noticed the aftermarket skid plate. It is also wired for a trickle charger and this is an aftermarket pipe right?

    This forum has already paid off, haha. I'll have to see if the sprocket mod needs to be done after I do the PM and ride it on a trail. Also, I've read about needing to rejet it if going to higher altitudes or just for running better in general. (Planning on riding in Big Bear which is as high as ~7000 feet).

    As far as aesthetics, I'm thinking on possibly going to a round headlight. Any thoughts on that?

    First thing you need to do is get rid of that front stock tire – it’s the weakest link on any TW, and it will face plant you first chance it gets

    You xhaust is the standard “DG” replacement – more noise, but that’s about all

    Plenty of reading on here about both – shout if you need any more info ……
