    I'm interested in keeping a low profile from the bug-n-bunny huggers seeing as I live in California. Trail riding is akin to wearing a Make America Great Again hat or shirt in this state.
    But I'll tell ya, as far as being seen, not a problem. EVERYBODY sees this thing in California! I get the stink-eye worse than if I were a Hell's Angel riding a loud Hog. Ha! Especially when the rifle scabbard is on board. I also get a lot of thumbs up from the redneck crowd. Ha!

    Maybe you should have an ax on the other side also. This would keep a low profile for the tree huggers as well. Very cool bike.

    Here is the link = not cheap, but made of Chinesium, longer, wider and mucho sturdy, a solid large base. A warning, don't ride bare footed with them! after only 20 miles my feet were spewing blood!!

    No need for any lecture…..totally kidding about bare footing it, These have sharp top grips, but get wide quickly so they don't shred your boots. Also do need modification to fit properly and articulate

    They come in other colors -

    Of course, they don't ship to Canada. I'm trying to spend money, and they won't take it.

    I have done a lot of mods to the T-Dub since I bought it. I ride it pretty much every day. The one mod that stands out on a daily basis is the Cycleracks rack. I haul all kinds of stuff on it pretty much every day. From tires to ice chests to camping gear to whatever I need to haul that day. I like all the mods I have done but if the rack was gone it would drastically change what I can do with the T-Dub. Yes...I towed my concrete mixer 2 blocks attached to the rack. It worked perfectly and saved me a huge hassle. .94A1700C-0B61-4528-AE61-28D78A3F27F1_1563068094111.jpegBC1A58F7-C64C-472F-9EF8-2B80A4D5ECD5_1563068129539.jpeg0EC9AAD3-9A12-4BE8-92D6-C8461F9D13EE_1563068187073.jpg

    My favorite mod is probably upgrading the electrics to the latest version. Harness, stator, flywheel, CDI, etc.

    I just took off the Chinese VM26 clone carb and replaced it with a genuine Mikuni VM26-606 today. That seems to be working great. The Chinese carb ran ok too, but was very rich at idle; out of the pilot screw adjustment. I basically bought the real Mikuni so I would know exactly what I am getting when I buy jets. That way I can also try them in the clone carb to see if they work properly there. If they do, I'll probably use it on another bike.

    A bigger tank is in the plans; in fact I have an XT600 tank I'll probably put on it.

    A Cycleracks rack is probably in its future as well.

    It’s hard to list them in the level of favorite, but the progression of how they happened as follows:

    1: Bars/risers so you can stand up comfortably. Add ProGrip 714 Rally Grips in at this time as well. Add handguards in at this time too!

    2: Larger foot pegs - once you start standing up, you will want larger, more comfortable foot pegs.

    3: Suspension: Once you are standing up, riding more spirited, you will quickly find out that your 6-inches of travel is... well, 6-inches of travel.

    My bike has an Ricochet skid plate as that came after my spirited riding engaged my crankcase into rocks that exceeded the factory skid plate levels of protection, FMF Powercore 4 exhaust with carb tuning, JNS LED headlamp, CycleRacks rear rack, Shinko 241 front tire.

    On my want list:
    1: Seat Concepts
    2: Clarke fuel tank
    3: MORE RIDE TIME!!!!!

    You can read all about my bike here on the TW200 forum! https://www.tw200forum.com/#/topics/46265

    You said “proper oil level in the front shocks”. Is there an inherent issues with the level that causes shock issues?
    I have a weird clacking noise on small but sharp bumps like dirt road puddle edges.
    It’s very annoying. I can make the noise just cycling the shocks sitting still.
    Wondering if oil level is the culprit.
