    New member (2013 TW200)

    Hi all,
    I am Ken, and since November I own 2013 TW200. I considered several dual sport bike options but ended up getting this one.
    I am pretty happy about the condition I got the bike in, except for certain minor things that I will fix, not a big deal.
    See the pictures of my ride in the attachment.
    Regards,
    Ken.

    While I've started this thread, let me take a chance and ask you, folks, something real quick. What do you think of Lyndall brakes? Is this a good alternative to stock brake rotors? I thought of replacing what I've got the bike with, as the rotors look pretty worn and they corrode already...
    Thx

    Welcome to the forum. Sorry I can’t advise about Lyndall brakes. Mine all have stock setups.

    Hi and welcome. That's a nice looking bike. Congrats.

    I've never heard of those brakes but that doesn't mean they aren't great. I've just never had the need to change mine.
    Most stock components on the TW are fine for the life of the bike and replaceable with the same. There's only one rotor on a TW and like an oil thread, as long as you stay with the recommended spec's it's one of those "if it makes you feel better then...

    First thing I did was change the Lilliputian foot pegs to better-than-Yamaha foot pegs. So yeah, there's better stuff out there. Other than changing the front disc brake hose to a stainless steel one (not yet) it already performs way above average. How did yours get corroded, 2013 is not that old of a bike?

    Thanks for the recommendation! I have picked up the bike this fall, and noticed the brakes were somewhat thin. When the is sitting in a garage for a week or so, the rotors get covered with rust. I am not sure why they rust so badly, but I read a bit online on that, and this may be caused by chemicals that got on the bare metal once. So I'd rather have my rotors replaced, as I don't like what's happening at all.

    As for those brakes, I was looking online to see what my options are, and came across those rotors. They are quite different from what I've got the bike with, so I wanted to see if anyone can comment on that.

    I've heard of wave rotors, but these look different from the others... I will see what I manage to find about them or maybe will give them a call... Just curious.
