I am curious about the benefits of this mod? I am a commuter and a trail rider, sometimes some pretty gnarly goat trails. I am thinking maybe a 2" extension. Will that give me any improvements on trail? Any possible negatives to consider?
A little more stability due to longer wheelbase.
Gives clearance for big ATV tires.
Increases rear suspension travel.
Decreases rear stiffness i.e feels like as softer spring is installed with longer travel.
Good opportunity to install sealed swing arm bearings in lieu of hard to install OEM seals and bushings.
Can improve hill climbing ability.
Allows more mud, water, debris to be tossed up past rear fender.
Increases turning radius.
Brings tire closer to rear of rear fender ( not a conflict issue with a 2" extension).
Makes wheelies more difficult.

Looking at changing out my stock bars for Pro Tapers (or Tusk Chubs Big Bars), but can't figure out which model is closest to stock.
I plan on using 1 1/8" style. Will use ROX risers to convert from 7/8" to 1 1/8". Don't want to extend any cables.

I love my new to me 2014 TW200! It had low kilometers and was in mint condition, and it's my first bike which is great to learn on.
While it seams most people here modify the tdub for more utility purposes, I thought I'd share my first customization geared a little more towards the street...
