    Sorry for the long delay with this build. I ran into a few problems and not mention life stuff that kept me from completing what I hope to be a fun, giggle factor machine. I started it up tonight and it sounds real good, fast rev and a little more vibration due to the increased stroke. I will include the details this week about the outcome good or bad. I ran out of time to put the chain back on and ride it around the neighborhood. It shifted through all 6 yes 6 gears and back into neutral, this is good!

    200 start I believe. This has taken awhile; I've been watching. Totally possibly though. Anything's possible.

    The TWactor comes to life. Cool!

    That's just wicked, makes me wish I had even the slightest clue about how to do things like this so I don't have to rely on them to do it.



    It's time they follow suit. Throw in 6 gears so the TW is much more comfortable at 55-65 with the extra power of a 250 and some architectual mods to make the thing run a little cooler, and we will have the perfect bike. Not too big like a 650 and not too small for real highway use like the 200 is. I know I know it will do it now, but it's no fun riding something that's so dang wound up even at 55. My stock Nighthawk 250 runs 60 mph at only 6000 in 5th (top) which is nice and smooth for a 250, actually it's only a 233cc. I know a TW250's 6th gear could easily do the same or better!

    Congrats on the progress!



    Can't wait to see some pics and specs, and of course your riding opinion.

    I started out with the Tw 200 and yes it can be done again. I tried to use all the TW parts I could so it could be done by others on the site. I took my first ride and there is a lot more torque a smile factor for sure like the bike is 150# lighter. It is running a little lean and stumbles at 3/4 throttle right now. I need to jet it before I test it again.

    As for the 6 speed...1st and 6th feel about the same as 1st and 5th on the TW. Having 2,3,4,5 in lieu of 2,3,4 definitey keeps the bike in the power band, at least for now that is what is felt. Kind of a odd felling down shifting 6 gears on a TW when you are used to 5 for so many years. That is a pic of the 6 speed ready to go into the TW. More testing to come.

    Holy smokes, now that is super cool. BTW I started my own build thread, and it's been super hard to keep momentum going on the build, life stuff (my job) really jams things up. Haha! SO I can relate.



    So is it a stroked 200? Do you mind giving the basic details here on this thread?



    Really cool work man!
