    Hi evryone, i´m new here, so forgive me if i use the wrong thread...

    Since some weeks i own a 1997 TW200. The former owner told me that the CDI was "open", what ever that means. I suggested that it had no speed limitations, but, the max. speed still is about 106 km/h. I wonder, because this is the max. speed on official sites. So, what can i do do speed it up to about 125km/h or so ? Is it f.i. possible to use a different CDI from a Yamaha 250 ? Or just crack the CDI ? However, how does the CDI work ? What controlls what, and, is the speedometer involved or not ?



    Thankx,



    Robin

    There is no speed limiter, but there is a rev (rpm) limiter.



    106kmh (65mph) is about "average". On a stock TW, 125kmh (77mph) is not going to happen, sorry.



    I don't know about the CDI's. The TW manual shows the timing curve with respect to rpm.



    Give Sebastian a phone call (Macbig2k1). Here is his website... http://www.tw-parts.com/

    Straight from the owners manual:



    Shift up points:

    1st → 2nd: 15 km/h (9.3 mi/h)

    2nd → 3rd: 20 km/h (12.5 mi/h)

    3rd → 4th: 30 km/h (18.6 mi/h)

    4th → 5th: 40 km/h (24.9 mi/h)



    With stock gearing the bike goes into top gear at 40 km/h... and people still expect it to exceed triple that at WOT?




    Unbelievable.

    Ummm...yep. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFRvU...eature=related



    Okay, fair enough mine isn't stock. But 65mph on a stock bike is not unheard of.

    I've hit a GPS indicated 64 mph on a stock 2010 TW, with Happy Trails panniers on and loaded with tools and gear. I wasn't down on the tank, no fairing or windshield. Last weigh-in I was 229 lbs.

    Yeah... 65 is still only 2.6 times the shift point, and I regularly do 70 (112 K/PH) with only sprocket & carb mods... that is still a tad less than 3 times the last shift point. And short of mcbabels goal.



    By the time you get the engine reved up to 75 plus, even with sprocket mods, you are talking about a lot of strain on this machine.



    It's a scooter with knobby tires. An off-road capable Vespa equivalent.



    Yes it can be made to go very fast, but be prepared to pay for it in mods, maintenance & repairs. New cylinder, new cams, new crank, etc. etc.

    It's gonna take a lot of work and experimentation to get it to run like an XT. It's been done, but not with any single item mod.

    Top speed on most stock TW should be around 70mph.

    Ok, thanks for your helpfull info. I guess i gonna play a bit with the sprockets. If 106 is about standart different sprockets gonna help to speed up a bit without missing too much force. I did not mean to have a racer, just flow with the avarage traffic.



    Thanks again,



    Robin

    About 10 sec 0 to 60 mph, nice.
