Hey

I purchased a 94 tw200 about 2 weeks ago and since then have been researching about turning it into a jap style street tracker.

Living in Sydney, the Deus shop have sparked me with the motivation try tackle a custom myself. As the shop probably does to most people.

Here are some photos.







Haven't done much as of yet besides research and ordering some parts.

I have an extended swing arm, brooklands fender, fender eliminator, new chain and some grips on the way from japan.



I'm about to purchase a air box removal kit which will reduce the size of the battery. Which means to start the bike I'm going to have to use the kick start, which i have a bit of trouble with at the moment.

It kicks fine when its warm but when cold i cant get it started, do i just require persistence and power?

Here is a photo of my carb, i've looked in the manual but cant find out what the red pull does im sure its associated with the kick start but what is it called and exactly what does it do? (sorry about the poor image quality)





Should be a few weeks before the parts from japan arrive but will update as often as possible.



Thanks a lot

Harry.

not sure about the red plug, mine has it too... in black. deus makes some sick looking bikes, no lack of inspiration from them.

btw: your color scheme corresponded to 1995 in the states.



ride on!

The red knob is an air bleed. It allows you to lean your mixture at higher elevations. It works in a manner opposite that of the choke.



The passage for it is not machined on U.S. models cuz the EPA is cool with polluting stuff at or above treeline?

You need a high capacity condenser if you go without a batter. Daytona a Japanese company sells it in Japan called a Battery lesser.

Some parts have arrived.





Still waiting on an air box eliminator kit, Service manual and some bridge stone tw203 and 204.

Once these other packages come i can start the tear down.

Sorry for the lack of updates.

Finally got starting tearing it apart. First day got the air box, battery, rear wheel and front wheel off. Along with the tires of both wheels which was a bit difficult but with the help of a friend got it done.

After the first weekend of the disassemble it was raining consistently for 2 weeks which was quite frustrating.
The sun finally cam out and, so i got another day to play with my TW. Got the tank, swingarm, wiring harness, and forks off.


Any advice on removing the removing the handle crown assembly? From the diagram in the manual it look like it has a lot of loose parts.

Today was good. Got the engine out, remove the steering column, removed mounting tabs for plastics and bearing out of wheels. Next wheels and frame to get powder coated satin black.

Just finding this thread now, check my blog, I finishing a build just like this last fall. It was fun and pretty damn easy. I have most of my build process documented on my blog. Can't wait to see your final bike!

Yeah saw your blog a while ago, great build. Would of loved to do a 2000 or after but could only get my hands on the 94. Here in Australia these bikes are hard to come by.
