    If you need to outrun lions, get a faster bike. These little bikes are great for anything but speed.

    Among other things, you will have to account for the countershaft issue. Engine swap: xt250 - Yamaha TW200 Trailway Discussion Forum

    Tdub2 is 267cc and peak torque is almost double stock, with significantly more area under the curve. Better have a fat wallet. The EFI alone was almost $900.

    Displacement alone won't make much difference as the air flow limits of a mild cam and small carb choke the stock displacement. If you have a few hundred dollars to spend, a mild cam and matching springs will provide the most bang for the bolt-in buck. Follow that up with a bigger carb and custom airbox with a free-flowing filter (low buck trick would be a TT-R 230 carb) and you'll notice a big difference in power without much compromise in efficiency or durability. Aftermarket exhaust will tend to add peak power, but at some cost of low/midrange and torque curve width, which can be a problem with the wide ratios of the top gears of stock transmission. Exhaust would be the last thing I'd change if I wanted more power--the stocker is actually pretty good, other than being heavy.
