Reminds me when I put a ct 110 motor in my ct 90. I think I gained 4mph. What a letdown.



Then I rode a trail 90 that had a Chinese 150cc motor in it and HOT DAMN then I really felt a difference

I would love to see a small twin cylinder, more torque & more Hp. Use to have a CM400 Honda, was a great engine and easy to service.

25cc and no other changes? No, don't think so. Not worth the gain in power to pay the shipping from Japan. I'd still be saving for a 73x63 bore and stroke, headwork, cam, square slide, 6-speed build.

Extra 25cc? No thanks, love the 200cc and if it was any bigger the TW would need other alterations to keep it handling safely. Let's face it,Yamaha has a winning recipe here, in production now for 15+ years? Outlived even the XT500, now that says something!

How about I pay myself the money and just loose 25 pounds?


Wouldn't that be just about like gaining 3.5 HP?


And it would equate to a spring/shock upgrade too!

I have been looking at 225's on yahoo japan with mild interest, essentialy because of the gearbox. I plan to get some engine work done to my bike in the future once i get it finished and get to ride it for a while. but i figure it's probably best to just go for a 6 speed box build at the same time as the engine mods, like querty is planning, cheaper. However if i could find a Complete 225 bike here i would snap it ip to make a second more standard trail bike as apposed to my hollow mod.

If i needed an engine I'd pay max about 550USD for a mint one. I see on yahoo Jp a good one is going for about 20 000 to 45 000yen 200-580USD BUY IT NOW PRICE, plus shipping, agent and all the other costs and headaches. 600 USD buys a hell of a lot of engine mods and spare parts

Nice buy it now going cheap here, 18 000 yen. http://www.rinkya.com/new/en/auction-c230651321 if the costs involved in importing where low i'd consider this as a nice project engine to work on whilst using my bike.



Not read Rinkya terms and condition regarding what they charge, and customs here are the most corrupt goverment agency. could cost me an arm and a leg if not done right.



Off subject, (sorry risingsun) SR400/500's are the most popular Japanese import bikes to customise here, with the TW being second.

Is anyone in this forum interested in SR's??.

I wonder if the SR engine is a possible swop candidate?, with some serious frame mods and the usual bearing offset etc problems? They output 30HP standard and very easy to mod apparently with lots of scope. I read one guy dyned his at 50BHP. Single cilinder is inkeeping with the TW. This is beyond my knowlege scope just a thought as we would all like more HP.



I wanted to but this beauty in BKK but my missus threatened to do unspeakables if i did. $2600 USD. i am still lusting after it though.

It's funny, I'm 5'11" and about 20 pounds on the heavy side. Since buying my TW200, loosing weight to "fit better" on my bike has been my motivation for exercising. LOL Its frickin' hard to get rid of the ol beer gut.
