Polished the slide
Yamaha Rear Rack
New seat cover
Bridgestone 203/204 street tires
Power Madd hand guards

Looks great! Ya done good.
Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!
Looking pretty good!
But if you're looking to go full-motard, how about a high fender and an Acerbis Cyclops headlight? I've been wondering what that cyclops would look like on a TW.
2011 TW200 - Sold - after 9700 miles and 1,000,000 smiles. So long Tee Dub!
2012 KLR650 - Sold
2013 Tiger Explorer XC
2014 CB500X - RRP L3
Thanks Guys! Yeah i have thought about the high fender modd several times and think it looks great but I think the T-dub is unique with its stock low front fender. I also wonder how the cyclops light would fit on the T-dub. has anyone ever done it?
how about longer front forks and smaller front wheel surely for a proper super moto look?
2001 TW200 - supertrapp stubby exhaust
1996 CRM 250 - 2 smoker - FMF exhaust
1998 Honda CB600 Hornet - ( a.k.a Honda 599 ) - micron , ohlins rear - CB600F3 front forks..
Thanks tire biter. and I agree dubstep that would give it that official flair but I have no idea what other sets of forks fit the TW.
looks great Alex!!! ...time to enjoy riding it!...how'd you end up mounting your tail light bracket?
also i had a buddy mount a cyclops ripoff headlight from ebay on his buell and it just melted the plastic lens
Thanks ryan! I took it on a quick 40 mile jaunt up into canyon lake yesterday. weather was perfect yesterday. The edge 2 light kit w/ bracket and hardware is a highly recommended buy. I mounted to the 2 bolts under the rear fender that hold that rear pad on the back down. All I had to do was measure the distance between the 2 bolts, then measure how far I wanted it under the rear fender. Mark the spots where I wanted the bolts to go on the light's bracket and drill. I did have to mod the license plate a bit to get it to fit on there but not to bad, just had to re-drill new mounting holes and file the very top center of the plate to get it to tuck up by the light, because before it was touching and wouldnt lay flush. The whole process from taking off the old light, re-wiring the new one and mounting it took me about 45mins, and its super sturdy. That sucks about your friend buying that light, that would kinda tick me off buying something then it doesnt work how its designed. bummer.
hey ryan have you see that DRC makes the edge 2 in a programmable tail light mode? Its kinda cool, see here: EDGE 2 on WRX tail light
