2022, not even out of warranty and I had to void it. And yes, this is as clean as it gets. Too busy riding it. That tire turns it into a tractor, basically anywhere an ATV can go, this has no trouble as long as the water doesn't go too much deeper than the seat.

My most memorable ride was two weekends ago. There was a huge rain storm approaching. I was exploring snowmobile trail, and ran into some hard packed snow. It was fairly easy to cross, but it was deep enough to worry me if I started breaking through a mile further down. So I decided to ride through a field that looked like it had recently been brush cut. I made it about half a mile down this field, bumping in and out of deep water filled holes and giggling at what wouldnt' stop me, when finally I jerked to a sudden stop. I couldn't push the bike forwards or backwards, so I layed it over to attempt to break suction.

Then I couldn't pick it up again! It was in a water filled hole, where if I applied force to the bars, it would shove my legs deeper into the ground instead. Finally I pulled out a section of webbing I had on hand, and standing on firm ground, pulled the bike upright. I was then able to ride away after noticing there was a huge stick bound up in the brake linkage. The only thing stopping me.

After I rode out, I discovered it was actually swamp, and it was settling from my own weight.

How does one get 16 hp out of a seemingly stock TW200? Nitrous bottle hiding somewhere? The few dyno
charts seen show a peak H.P. value around 12 hp at the wheel.

This is my second TW and it’s a keeper. As you can see I kept it pretty much stock! 😂🤦‍♂️😜

But honestly it’s a fun bike to kick around on. “El Burro” or “Donkey” will climb every mountain, follow every byway, ford every stream, and take every path you know.

I keep 10 pesos glued to the gas cap in case I need to fill ‘er up.

Some of the mods are, removed front fender, Tech Industries tail tidy, swapped out the cowling, Speedo, cluster, for a simple cable speedo and large LED headlight. Tank has been scrubbed, sanded, and clear coated. Regeared the front and rear sprockets for better all around riding. Removed the kickstand switch, removed blinkers for low profile rear and integrated fronts in headlight, lots more of that type of unnecessary nonsense.

Thanks
