I had my TW since last year and I had done a few minor things to it so far. I just thought it would be great to show you guys what I have done. I am not finished at all. Winter is here and all I can do is look at the new shiny parts to go on the TW lol. Anyways here we are so far. Attention to detail!! installed a fancy red oil fill cap (My first mod).

And my friend's TW in the background.

I had to change up the skid plate, that thing was ugly and had to go. I bought the Ricochet skid plate. Well worth the money.





Next was the foot pegs, switched them out to the "ebay" ones. They are not bad and for the price I could not say no. Also changed out the shift lever. I bought a folding one "Sunline". Works great.

Looking real nice! You're going to love that skid plate and the shifter. The longer shifter gave me cleaner and quicker shifts. Is the shifter for a YZ250-year 2005ish?

Rainman I agree you do get better shifts that's for sure, and to answer mrbracket's question as well I purchased it for a Yamaha YZ250 1996-2009 I wish I still had the package number so I could help you guys out. I think I paid $35.00 for it. I want to change out the brake pedal as well however it is hard to find something that will fit.

I felt that I would like a headlight guard so I ordered "TCI Products headlight guard". Bolted up very nice, and fit well.

I replaced the stock exhaust header with a Yamaha stock 2001 TTR 225 header.





I had to clean it up a bit first
.





Nice and shiny.





The new and old side by side.





I didn't take too much effort to make the TTR header to fit other than to cut 1 inch off the pipe.

Looks like you have some work ahead of you! I'm envious.



I bought the same stainless steel bolt set as you did. Make sure you use anti-sieze on the threads. You don't want the stainless to permanently bond with the motor.



I love the bolts. They look nice and are easier to remove when needed.

Thanks for the comments guys. I'm itching to get these parts on, Mrbracket the header did come out nice. It only cost me $35.00 on ebay. The stainless steel bolt kit is worth the money and thanks for the tip Rainman. I will keep everyone informed about the cam results, I think will wait a bit before that install. So here's a question for everyone, my bike has been sitting for a bit in the cold. I have pulled the battery, put fuel stabilizer in the tank etc... The other day I tried to start it, it wont start. It was minus 5 outside I think it wasn't that cold. Should I just use a space heater on the engine to help it to start. The bike is in my shed in the winter cold. I think that I might have to drain the carb and maybe shoot a bit of gas in the cylinder head to give it a boost. Any thoughts would help.

Mine sometimes won't crank when the temp is in the 30's. Make sure that you put a trickle charge on your battery and put it in the garage with a heater for a while and it should start. I have a Walmart battery tender on my TW and a Battery Tender Jr. on my Triumph. Both work fine and are about $30. Good luck!
