    Before and After - TW Style

    Got this idea from another site. Let's see yours!

    My 1992 TW200, before and after.

    The way I got it in late 2015:



    Now, June 2016:

    Impressive.

    Not to rain on your parade; but are those ammo boxes plastic?

    Not that it's necessarily bad. Cuts weight; but I didn't know you could buy plastic replicas

    Yes - plastic utility box, from northern tool. Plastic, but thick and rigid. The real, larger sized ammo cans are HEAVY! These are nice and light, easy to take on and off. At $20 each, I had to try them out.

    Quite the transformation. I'm always amazed at how we can make these TW's look like they went through one of those "make over" shows!
    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    They both look ready for about anything.

    The header is off a 2000 Yamaha TTR225 Exhaust Header Pipe. I got it off eBay for $40. could hardly tell it was stainless, but I soaked it in an oxalic acid solution and some steel wool elbow grease. I had to chop about an inch off the end, as it is a tad too long stock. Otherwise, it bolted right up!

    The main reason I got a SS pipe is because it's a lot quieter than the stock pipe. The SS pipe is a lot thicker and I guess that makes it quieter.
