    Hey there ladies and gents, I’m about to jump into some serious work on my bike I have some questions about some basic mechanical stuff and parts, let me know what you think!



    Below are some links as well as some quotes from those threads.





    Air Filter:

    Should I go with a K&N or UNI?



    https://tw200forum.com/forums/96690/ShowPost.aspx

    Uni Filter dual stage pod filter ~ UP4182ST

    Uni Filter crank breather ~ UP103



    https://tw200forum.com/forums/1/72456...ost.aspx#72456

    "Crank Breather 62-2480

    Air Filter RC-1890 with stock rubber hose used as extension

    You need to get a 16mm crankcase breather. Can get them from any car/bike shop or about $10 on ebay. Crank Breather 62-2480. Air Filter RC-1890 with stock rubber hose used as extension "

    http://www.knfilters.com/search/wrap.aspx



    Jets

    I have a FMF exhaust, I also wanted to the air filter above, what jets should I buy now so the mechanic will have a choice? I am a complete noob, is a shim another part? 130 seems to be the size everyone said they got.



    Here is a line about removing the gas tank:

    https://tw200forum.com/forums/66264/ShowPost.aspx

    “Piece of cake. All you need is a 10mm socket. Remove seat by removing two bolts under it, cut of gas from tank, remove gas hose from tank petcock, remove bolt from base of tank and slide tank backwards....... done.

    Good luck!! Willy.”



    “When you have if off the frame put some rubber spray ( ArmorAll, PB Blaster) type stuff on the rubber pucks & bushing before you put it back together. Stopped a squeek I had.

    BillMichaels “



    Removing tank paint:

    aircraft stripper

    http://www.wmbarr.com/product.aspx?catid=82&prodid=136



    Then Scotch Brite and WD40.



    Clean the tank after the paint is taken off:

    What should I do to clean the tank before putting it back on and adding gas?



    How to protect a metal tank?

    What should I use to to protect the tank?



    I found this:

    Or spraymax 2k

    I had a UNI filter. I liked it over the K&N because it was easier to clean and oil, and I preferred the sticky PJ1 oil on UNI's foam over the K&N's gauze with oil sprayed on it. This is a good video showing the process of cleaning and re-oiling a foam filter (he uses ALOT of filter oil, I always used PJ1 because it's super sticky and tacky and never used nearly that much http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...ilter-Oil.aspx):

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-ETKomHST4





    I had a 130 jet for a UNI filter and stock exhaust with the spark arrestor removed (I never left roadways with my bike). The 130 is the go-to for many people. Jets are pretty cheap with respect to the amount of work you are planning on doing, get a few...127.5, 130, 132.5. Shouldn't need more than a 132.5. The shim is a separate part, but not a yamaha part...depending how well stocked your local hardware store is you may find a tiny washer that meets the needs, but the size needs to be 0.125" (1/8") inside diameter to slip over the needle. Best bet is to buy (5) 0.010" thickness shims and add/remove shims as necessary, as opposed to buying a single shim. Here is a good option if your hardware store doesn't have them...http://www.mcmaster.com/#99040A310





    Sounds like you are wanting a bare metal tank? I can't help with that one





    Batteries are all over in price, get a sealed/AGM and call it good. Can't help you with what's best, I'll let others chime in. There's some good info on the site already for a good sealed alternative, just don't remember who made it.





    As far as bolts, I have no idea. I think some have had good luck with the eBay options. May want to do some searching on there for what's available.

    I'll bite. How?
    The greatest trick that Jay64 ever pulled was convincing the world he did exist.

    Amazon, go to Amazon.jp. You have to register a new account since its in another country click in english. Search TW200 or TW225 happy hunting. They site will assist you if you need help.

    That is what I love about this site, there is so much great information! Thank you guys!!!



    Here is the shopping list so far, still feel free to give me your opinions (and if I have a size messed up)! And awesome info RisingSun, I am going to check that out. The vendors in Japan have great parts like fenders and seats!



    ----



    Airfilter:

    Lets beat a dead horse. I like the K&N look, especially the metal versions, but I am an idiot if I don’t get the UNI? UNI seems like the beter choice for protection and ease of use.



    K&N

    http://www.amazon.com/RC-1890-Univer...sr=1-1-catcorr

    and

    http://www.amazon.com/K-N-62-2480-Ve...5486326&sr=1-1



    or the UNI?

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...tomotive&psc=1

    and

    Crank Breakther:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000OO0XLS/



    ----



    Bolts:

    There are three contenders now. Another thread:

    https://tw200forum.com/index.php?/top...kit-wpictures/



    Edit I am leaning to:

    alloyboltz

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/YAMAHA-TW200...ht_2908wt_1391

    ----



    Shims:

    http://www.mcmaster.com/#catalog/118/3247/=ha25d2



    ----

    Battery (the link you sent had great information Point37):



    http://www.batterystuff.com/powerspo...09L2-BS12.html



    Screw it, it is silly expensive but it looks good.

    ----



    Oil:

    http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...ilter-Oil.aspx



    I am assuming this is right for UNI, not good for K&N.



    ----



    Jets:



    130:

    http://www.powersportsplus.com/parts...343-65-00.html



    127.5 AHHHH there is like choices! Which one?

    http://find.powersportsplus.com/?r=t&q=127.5&x=0&y=0



    Same with the 132.5

    http://find.powersportsplus.com/?s=1&q=132.5&x=0&y=0



    No idea what to search to get the right answer.

    ----



    Paint remover:

    http://www.amazon.com/GAR343-KLEAN-S...5486085&sr=8-3



    Any better ideas?

    ----



    I like statements like "If you don't get this you are crazy"! I rather buy something good once, then feel like an idiot that I got something subpar.



    Thank you again guys! I am an awful parts shopper.

    Big thumbs up for the Shorai battery! And have you thought about going with a lager tank? Right now you can get in on a sizeable discount thru a special deal that Lizrdbrth set up for us, Clarke Tank Group Buy From JustGasTanks, check it out here:



    https://tw200forum.com/index.php?/top...-justgastanks/



    $178.20 with shipping. Mine was $186.55 cause I’m in Californication, & gotta pay that tax! Still a great price on a great tank, but only through the end of this month. Use code TWGB to get the discount.



    Modding gets quite additive, no? m.

    I sent you a PM ceramite. But will post the jet info for everyone.



    I bought the 135 and 138 jets for the late model TW carb at jetsrus.com. The Keihin jets are the same size as the OEM(the Keihin 135 was the next step up from the OEM 132.5) , but are slotted screw head instead of bolt head.
