    2005 tw200 customization complete! (for now)

    I just completed my first motorcycle customization! Its a tw200! I love this bike! Super fun! I purchased her with 1000 miles on. Just turned 3000 miles on the odometer when the fmf slip-on finally came in from back order. Now I could pull off the rest of the internal plastics, rejet the carb, add a hi flo air and crankcase filter. I ordered a jet kit from Japan and one from a company in the us (pro-cycle). With help from my pops, we pulled off the carb and tried to use the japanese kit, based on the diagrams. Instructions were in japanese. We tried about 5 different combos and couldn't get her to start or run without bogging down, or revving really high. We tried the kit I bought from procycle. The instructions were in English! We tried the suggested main jet, with the new needle, shim, and pilot jet. Fired right up! Runs like a champ! Fells much smoother when holding the throttle at a constant speed. More power and feels much more efficient. I like the sound of the fmf! It is louder when accelerating, but I don't mind. I live in downtown Austin, and have had some close calls with dumbos not paying attention, and not seeing me. Sounds like a racing exhaust. Sounds nice! Good tones, glad to find a header that is stainless as well, to match!

    Well, how do you like it overall? Anything you would do differently if you had to start over? Looks good.

    Tom, I love it! It's my first motorbike. It's been a fun ride. Great to learn on. I'm a little guy, 5'8" 135lbs. So this bike is a great fit. I like how it turned out. I was inspired by a lot of the custom japanese tw's. I still wanted it to look like a dirt bike though. I am very pleased with it! Having a great time!

    Yeah...I was kind of on the fence about the sticker too. I thought it matched the shock a little, but it is kind of bright. I usually don't like brands/logos on things either.

    just cause you got a jet kit from japan doesn't mean its for your area. The jet kit is based on a lot of things = modifications, elevation, temperature even humidity at times. Don't lose hope on your project. You can actually cut down your seat and have it reupholstered. That is what the first tuners did before everything was made.

    I am going to leave the seat as is! I like the dirt bike look.the bar on the back gives it a nice finished look I think. As far as jetting...I might try another shim under the needle...and a larger main jet next time I have to mess with the carb. The rejetting process was a great confidence builder, as this is my first bike, and I am a novice mechanic!
