    Unless you also get the TTR225 right ride cover the assembly will be a little too wide for the stock TW right side cover unless you shave cover and trim bolt on clutch assembly as TW-Brian pointed out in the thread about using PlacerLode's output shaft extension for mating a XT or TTR engine in a TW frame. It should be possible, just not a simple plug-n-play...do yourself a favor and get the TTR right side cover.

    I am not familiar with the TT225 engine, but it appears to be a different animal than the TW200/TTR225/XT225 engines.

    I do not think that the 6-plate clutch baskets from the TTR225/XT225 engines will be a direct bolt up onto a TW200 engine as I believe that the splines on the shaft that the clutch baskets mate to are different.

    That's all I got.

    i remember someone posting about the tt225 hub having the same splines, ect thats why i bought it, but me and the search function are not finding it,

    since i have it i was gonna install it till i get a shaft extension and install a xt225 engine, probably dont need it right now, but the big atv tire and the areas i elk hunt with 13-65 gears is hell on the clutch

    13/65 should be easy on the clutch.

    Get a Barnett Kevlar clutch.
    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    Sorry, thought it was a TTR, not TT clutch pack under consideration. My mistake, know naught of TT engines.
    However am surprised to hear of the overworked clutch. While I'm not dragging elk carcasses my 13 x 55 gearing seems to haul my carcass without complaint up many a sustained ascent. Maybe 300stw's steep trails are steeper than my idea of "steep".

    Kickstater hole's knock-out receives an oil seal prior to kick starter installation. Presumes case has corresponding machining for other end of kicker shaft.
