The 4.50 is a 6 ply, that is why it weighs more. Most riders here either go with the 5.10-18 (6-ply) or the 4.60 (4 ply). I haven't heard of anyone using the 4.50, probably because it was not available two years ago.
Being an oddball, I chose the 120/80-18 4 ply because it was the lightest of all. I haven't changed my mind in the ensuing 4 years. I got a chance to swap bikes with a friend with the 5.10 on some moderately loose gravel roads and found the 5.10 to be slightly more stable when leaned over, and less likely to turn in as quickly. For slow rocky technical stuff or sand I would prefer the 120/80 for the same reasons.
On a light bike like this I don't see any reason to go for a six ply, but then I ride rather slowly and carefully, avoiding sharp rocks most of the time. If you really like to bash through rough stuff, get the 5.10.
Do any of you have any direct knowledge or experience with this "Tusk" product, or with the brand, in general?
It looks well made and the price is right.
Anybody successful yet jetting a 2019 TW200?
Although it's just a camp bike right now I still would like
to ride it this winter. It won't run off-choke presently.
I've jetted all my racing dirt bikes in the past 50-years but too old and lazy now to experiment.
So to the best of my knowledge, tinted headlights arent legal in Pennsylvania but I wanted to get some protection for the plastic lense on JNS headlight unit. I always liked the look of yellow fog lights so thought I'd try that out. I think it looks pretty cool honestly but since it isnt legal...
Man, a guy here in Washington used to own a tw200, bought the pipe and put a few miles on it, feels bad for his neighbors, puts it on Craigslist for 150, pretty much brand new.
For those of you with the DGv2... are you using quiet inserts? Which ones are you using? How do the insert overall...
