    Ordered a 19', and, and,and.

    First post! Thanks for having me..

    Yupp, I ordered 2019, I could have saved some scratch on a carry over, but I love the new color scheme.
    I also ordered..
    Front and rear racks from Cycleracks
    JNS Engineering LED light assy.
    $ 170.00 of stuff from Superbrightled's
    128 main jet
    130 main jet
    3 pack of 0.4 mm shims (all jets and shims w Yamaha part numbers.)
    IMS Super stock foot pegs

    I plan to completely convert to LED's.
    I also will be adding some extra safety lighting. (I was run over from the rear at a red light on my 650L)
    Things like a brake light pulser, and a pr. of 18 watt amber strobes that I will use the horn button to activate briefly to be seen at intersections.
    No plans for a slip on exhaust at this point.
    Just plan to get the bike safer and tuned right
    Don't get the bike till late March Probably have a thousand bucks worth of accessories waiting to go on! Still need hand guards and prob a skidplate..
    I am really looking forward to this project, I build one cool thing each yr. and for 2019 it's gonna be a T-DUBB!

    Thanks again I have already learned a lot poking around here!


    p.s this will be my 5th dual sport... 650L, 250KLR, 650 KLR, 400 DRZ, and now the T-DUBB.

    I think we see eye to eye on what to do to a new TW, you have lots of fun ahead, getting her "just right" for YOU.

    The only thing you are missing is a Shinko 241 front tire to get a prize for the most tricked out TW!
