    For those of you interested in the relatively simple lowering mod to your TW200, the perfect shock is the Yamaha XVS1100 VSTAR. These can be readily had for about $60 including shipping on ebay.



    I have come across what appears to be an exceptional quality XVS1100 pull from a 2008 Yamaha. I was oringally going to lower my bike for my 5'5" frame, but I have decided I can live with the stock configuration.



    This one looks near new (see link to my skydrive photo) other than some minor scratches. It is super straight and appears to be lightly used.



    Here is the shock in all its glory



    If you are serious about this type of mod, look no further as this appears to be a gem. I am selling for $55 including shipping to cover most of my costs, but I did pay a bit more for condition. I want to give something back to us short folk out there!



    For easy instructions on lowering (this shock gives about a 3" lower seat) see The following thread



    Let me know if you are interested. $55 delivered and for a 2008 in great shape you should be happy!

    Not only is this a great shock for lowering, in my opinion, it is a very nice shock to use as a replacement for the stock TW unit. It is more/easy adjustable and I found it to produce a much smoother ride off pavement (for me). When I had that unit on my bike, I was about 170lb and always carried a fair amount of weight out back. The mod to the shock to allow the bike to sit at stock height is pretty straight forward. Just my experience/opinion Gerry



    Take care my Friend.........
