    Bought left over 2014 today, looking for input on mods.

    Hello, I bought a left over 2014 today and want to add a few parts. What do you recommend for wide pegs that bolt on. How about lever guards like Moose bark busters or Acerbis? The bike will probably be used mostly off road so I will need them. How about a tank bag or bag on the rear rack. I think I am going to get the Yamaha rack. P1010007.JPGP1010010.JPGHave a few questions too. Are the front directional lights supposed to be on all the time? They are lit up even when not blinking. The rears are not. I checked the air filter when I got home. It appears it is not oiled. Is that right? Most foam air filters are oiled. Thanks

    If you go to the search bar and click "advanced search" you can do a search by title and type in the info you are looking for this site is a gold mine of TW200 information you will find what you need. Congrats on your new purchase, I have 25 miles on mine now. I just ordered pegs off ebay that are bigger and wider, only like $18 shipped. For lever guards I will be in the market soon too a friend of mine recommended Acerbis but not sure which way I'm going.

    Congrats! That other yamaha makes the T-dub look like a big brother. As for a luggage rack my research has found that only the Manracks and Cyclerack don't put weight on the rear subframe. If you want the Yamaha accessory there are many new on eBay now. I think one was cheaper.

    i'm biased towards the DMO pegs, as i helped get them to market, but they are pretty bullet proof.
    www.dmospecialties.com
    (FWIW i don't get anything from them)

    i have 5000 miles on acerbic bark busters and they have saved my levers on road and trail a 100x over.

    the light should be on, so swap out your front tire and ride that baby. enjoy!

    Tusk D-Flex are rugged and well priced hand guards. Congrats on the new bike!

    Yes the front lights should be on. Filter should be lightly oiled.
    Everything else is personal preference. I've tried cheap wider pegs they didn't feel right for me. I have el cheapo hand guards on mine they are a copy of Acerbis, only issue is cheap hardware. I have something different to try for this year. Not needed but wanted. My bike, bought used had a Yamaha rack. I added a ryobi tool bag for a grocery getter. No tools needed to remove bag.
    Chain and tire are often replaced. Chain with an O-Ring and a Kenda or Shinko front tire. If you swap chain before you add a lot of miles you won't have to remove case side cover to change sprockets. And sprockets with an oring chain should last longer. Other wise always change sprockets and chain at the same time.

    I've got about 25 miles on my 2015. There are a lot of TW200 items on Yamaha TW200 Parts and Performance - ProCycle, just fyi. I've been looking at racks, think the Manrack BBQ rack might fit my needs, as I want to mount a Small Motofizz bag that I use on my 1150GS. It would be nice to just swap the bag back and forth. Also looking at a handlebar bag, the one from kathysjourneydesigns.com. And those small footpegs gotta grow. I have a set of Hyperlites that I'd like to install but need to check with my dealer since its new and I don't want to void the warranty or something. Here's a pic of my new toy, in the sexy dark grey and white.

    I have the $90 Acerbis handguards, and my buddy just bought the cheap ones that look the same on ebay for $29.00ish, and except for the name stamp on inside, and outside sticker, I swear, they are the same. No different at all. I'd get the cheap Acerbis look alikes. Very strong, with the barend wedge mount bolts being the better ones out there.

    Before I got my bike, I had a list of stuff I wanted to get. The Tusk D-Flex with built in LED Turn Signals, were on that list. I didn't get them because my bike came with Acerbis guards. But those guards with the turn signals are exactly like the D-Flex ones. I like that they on the bottom, and set in out of harms way. Plus, it puts the front signals out wider, so much easier to see by others on the road..... Sometimes the front signals are hard to see being next to the headlight.

    Here are the Tusk ones. Search for different colors.

    Here are different Zeta brand. Search for different colors.

    Ordered the cheapest steel pegs on ebay and the generic Acerbis lookalike handguards on ebay too. Probably going to go with the Yamaha rack. RMATV has them for $95.
