    What kinds of TW-specific parts, bling, performance or problem solver items do you most wish were available for your TW?



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    I have a few ideas, but TW people are kind of thrifty and I don't think you'd sell many of them.



    -A nice bolt on bracket to mount a Trailtech Vapor computer in place of the OEM instrument units. Something super sanitary.

    -Brackets to mount Trailtech Vapor speed sensors to both disc and drum brake bikes. There's no sanitary option for drum bikes currently

    -Billet aluminum footpegs. Something nice like IMS, but aluminum. They sell them for the biggies like Teneres and other higher dollar ADV bikes.

    -Adapter brackets to put other oversize tanks on these bikes. Seems like the threads covering XT tanks and the like all use various handmade brackets.



    You'll notice a trend in my ideas. I like sanitary stuff. I personally won't do a modification until I'm confident the final product will look absolutely factory when completed, whether using my parts or bought aftermarket parts. That's why I haven't bought one of your oil cooler adapters yet. I'm still trying to figure out where to put the cooler to make it effective, well protected, and look factory quality.

    I second this one!



    An all-in-one kit with adapter, hoses, cooler, brackets and detailed instructions (including new larger oil volume measurements) would be well worth paying a little extra for in my mind.

    Almost forgot!



    Also in the kit, some kind of petcock assembly to bypass the cooler for when it's cold out. Something rigidly mounted to the adapter would be preferable to an in-line valve flopping around.

    i second the all-in-one oil cooler kit. Maybe a rear spring upgrade?
    If you can't find it, grind it

    Maybe a rear disc (although the drum really isn't bad if maintained), an oil cooler ready to drop in would be handy. Big one for me would be a 2-piece left case cover. That could get tough, but it's not impossible.

    Inexpensive reliable larger front footpeg or reputable source for one.

    My my, yes, this would be very nice. Complain about it all the time, myself



    The purpose though is probably to get some outside support on that long countershaft, so need to take this into consideration (Jontow and I were discussing this in the past few days)

    What I wish is that Yamaha would take our best idea's and make them O.E.M. on a new model and retro fit on older ones.
