I want to change the clutch on my new-to-me 2006 TW225, and I'd appreciate some pointers.
I've been doing some research and I'm struggling to find any concrete information regarding what clutch kit I need. I'd like to change the frictions, steels, and upgrade to some stiffer springs. I know the TW225 shares engine parts from the TW200 models, and also the XT225 model. Is the bottom end (including clutch basket) all TW200?
What I want to know is will a clutch kit for a 2006 era TW200 fit my TW225? Or would a 2006 XT225 clutch kit be the one I'm after? I have found a clutch kit for a 2003 TW225, will that work, or did the clutch basket change in 2003?
Same question applies to the engine cover gasket that I want to replace when doing the job - TW200?
Thanks for the help!

You can search by part numbers if you have them. There was no change to the clutch for the entire run (2002 – 2007). I’m trying to get hold of a set of details for the whole bike, but that could take up to a week from now
Parts from a TTR225 (Serrow) are more likely to fit than the XT225 – but the individual part numbers will tell the story on that ……
Thanks for the help as always!
I've found an EBC kit (frictions, steels, and springs) for 2002-2003 TW225. It's on eBay here in the UK, which is a good start. If they haven't changed anything, this should fit!
As for the gasket, would I be safe in assuming the gasket from a TW200 would be correct?
Perfect - you're a star!
I've ordered the bits... I'll let you all know how it goes!

are you changing the clutch because its gone or just want to upgrade it?
i have had many TW's over the last few years and when checking the plate thickness to the manual i found that they were all still good and the clutch just needed adjusting and setting properly and new springs, the ones mentioned above are good.
i have used the EBC kits too, but ive only normally had to change the springs
all the TW clutches are the same 200-225 all years, same as the side casing and engine gaskets, only difference is the metal head gasket as the 225 has a 71mm piston.
