    Update: 100,000 Kilometers on my Zong

    I have now ridden over 40,000 miles on my Chinese copy of the Yamaha TW200, my 2006, Zongshen 200GY-2. Here are some photographs I took during this evening's ride.















    I rebuilt the top end of the engine at 31,500 miles, and my bike has never run better than now.

    Hey Spud,



    LTNS. Glad to hear that your Zong is giving good service.



    Do you know of a source for a parts breakdown on the Zong? Particularly the flywheel and CDI arrangement.

    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.

    Howdy, Liz! You can download a parts catalog for the Zong from the following link at the China Riders website.



    http://www.chinariders.net/transfer/...GY-2_parts.pdf



    A wiring diagram for the Zong is included in the last pages of the bike's service manual, which you can also download from the China Riders website.

    I see you guys are looking for a less expensive alternative to the Yamaha CDI unit. The Zongshen CDI units are much less expensive; therefore, I keep two spare units on hand. However, I'm pretty confident the Zongshen CDI unit is not compatible with the TW200 electrical system. Nevertheless, one could easily install the Zongshen stator and pickup coil in a TW200, and then switch to the Zongshen CDI unit. The cost for this coversion would probably be less than the cost of a Yamaha CDI unit.



    I'm not soliciting business; however, I am a Zongshen parts dealer. Therefore, I could get the parts for you guys if you were interested in some kind of group purchase.

    Thank you, Gerry. I hope you are well; I always enjoy reading your informative, helpful posts. I have traveled with my Zong to Montana, Wyoming, and Utah, as well as my home state of Idaho. The Zong/TW200 is a rugged, reliable, wonderful little motorcycle!

    Howdy, Racer! You aren't the first person who has suggested I should start a tour service. I initially dismissed the idea, but perhaps I should reconsider.



    As you know, I don't plan to put any KTM decals on my Zong. I'm proud to have my bike bear the Zongshen lettering on the saddle, and the right crankcase cover!

    Howdy, Rodney. I have used Rotella T6 in my Zongshen engine for many miles; it's a great motor oil! However, I have recently starting using the conventional, 15W/40 motor oils, and changing the engine oil every time the odometer turns over another 1,000 miles.

    Your Zong looks more like a XT200 than a TW200. Miles = smiles.
