Good Morning Everyone!

I am new to the TW forum. I just recently purchased a leftover 2013 TW200 from a South Florida dealer. I have always wanted a TW and I finally made it happen! I plan to ride this bike as my daily commuter to work. I have changed a few things in the last two weeks of ownership to my specs of riding style. It’s a great bike! I get lots of compliments on it!
I ordered a Yamaha FZ6R shock to see if that tightens up the rear suspension….I will let you know how that works out.

Nice meeting everyone!

Dave

Thanks for the welcome! Sure, no problem with picking my brain but let me posts some information before I forget! Winter is too far away and I will not remember anything! LOL The most expensive upgrade was the DG exhaust ($185.00). I needed to purchase the Battery Tender Lithium battery (BTL09A120C - Amazon $67.00) for its super small size....the stock OEM battery hindered my under seat storage compartment. I rejetted the carb (Sigma Jet Kit - Ebay $40.00) and installed a K&N air/breather (K&N R-1100 - $20.00 - Ebay) - (K&N 62-1600RD - $8.05 - Amazon). I had the headlight, foot pegs, grips, headlight bracket, brake light, blinkers (not shown in picture), decals, tail light bracket, etc. Some things had to be slightly modified to fit properly but it all worked out for the best. Now I hope the Yamaha FZ6R shock works.....the red one is the FZ6R shock. shock_compare_2.jpg If it lowers the rear of the bike, I will drop the front to match and whack the kickstand.....if needed. This is my street ride only machine. :>)

Thank you! I had some highly modified Honda Grom projects in the past. This time, I wanted something a tad larger to ride. This is a very easy bike to modify....almost like a Harley! :D

The 2013 is the fastest, most comfortable, and best looking TW ever made. :p All the cool TW owners have at least one. Right Tom?

Sorry bro.;)The 87 is the fastest. That's why they had to change things in 88. Too many riders were killing themselves, due to the easy wheelie factor and high performance engines.:p
