Hey folks, just wondering if anyone else was in the land of kimchi?



Here is a picture of my 2005 TW next to the Korean Hyosung knock off. I do want to get the oil cooler in picture #3.

The Hyosang is interesting. It doesn't llok like a knockoff, more like a competitor. It looks like a double overhead cam engine, bigger rotor that's drilled, rear rack, updated styling, and several other differences. Is it a 200?

Kinda looks like a slightly bigger gas tank, too.. in a weird way, I think I like it.



I do disapprove of the lacking kickstart.. but I disapprove of that on newer TWs, too, so whatever.



qwerty: any idea what the deal is with the pair of arms heading toward the rear wheel from around the brake pedal? I don't like them being underneath like that, but .. why two?



Edit: it looks like most of their smaller bikes are 250cc ..can't find much on this one, though, but maybe this sheds some light:

Did you by chance happen to notice if the back rim was steel or aluminum?

The bar under the swingarm is to stop the brake backing plate from rotating. TWs, use a boss on the backing plate that fits into a tab on the swingarm to do the same thing.

Thought so.. was too lazy to edit my post yet again
I still think its a bad idea to stick all of the underneath the swingarm on a dual sport bike.. but to each their own!

Did I mention the back rim?




I'd sure like to ditch 10 or 12 pounds off of that pig of a rear rim.



Did I mention checking the back rim?
