    Here is my 2009 TW200. I purchased it used in November and It's my first motorcycle.













    The bike already had:

    - FMF PowerCore pipe

    - 47T sprocket

    - aftermarket blinkers

    - stainless steel xt 225 header



    Here is everything I did:



    - Removed all decals (I think the Yamaha graphics are horrible!)

    - Replaced aftermarket blinkers with OEM blinkers

    - FMF Quiet Core Spark Arrestor (I loved the sound, but don't feel like getting hassled by the rangers)

    - Tusk D-Flex Handguards/Spoilers (no more cold hands from wind, and tree branches are no problem now!)

    - Pro-Taper Pillow Top MX Grips (comfy)

    - Tusk Handlebar Riser Kit 7/8" Bars, 30mm Height (I can stand up comfortably)

    - Renthal Rider 7/8" Handlebar Jimmy Button Bend

    - Yamaha rear rack

    - RAM Mount with X-Grip cradle

    - LuckyBike mirror riser extenders 10mm (These were super helpful with the stock handlebars, as I could only see my shoulders before)

    - Clarke Gas Tank (I did this mainly because the graphics are not removable on the stock tank, plus I now get more distance)

    - Kisan TailBlazer 20W-D Brake Light Flasher (Helps wake up the drivers behind me, I have noticed that people will keep greater distance after I hit the brakes now)

    - Jimbo Windshield (It's covered in bugs, mud, and rock chips -- I guess it works)

    - IMS foot pegs (This is a must, the stock pegs were like toothpicks. I got the real $80 IMS pegs, as I don't want to trust the cheap ones on eBay -- These pegs are made specifically for the TW200, but I still had to grind down the hinge a bit to get them to fit)

    - 12v accessory outlet (Couldn't figure out a more elegant way to mount it, so I just used zip ties and it hasn't moved yet)



    I also have a white Acerbis Supermoto fender, but I would have to fabricate a mount and I rather spend my time riding now



    That is it for mods on this bike, I really hope the XTW250 RYOKU is my next one...

    Very nice. It's also nice to have/see a list with the benefits of the mods listed. OM

    Very nice looking bike. The tank looks sharp. I have a set of those Lucky Bike extenders too, what a difference!
    If you can't find it, grind it
