I personally have the DG and like it a lot. A buddy has the FMF, very similar sound, just make sure you get the silencer cores. Without the silencers they sre both way to loud imo..
I think the FMF is a better looking pipe, but again very similar with sound and seat of panties power increase
I have the DG. The 1.25 inch silencer makes it change in tone from oem, but not loudness. FMF and DG are distinctions without a difference. A rejet is in order. After I slid my pipe on I was popping and snapping and could not idle. My test drive was an immediate beating on a one track for about 60 miles. I was running pretty lean. Dennis Kirk is great to deal with. The install is about 20 minutes.
I put a Chinese carb on last month and it’s running great now. I’m in the process of rebuilding the stock carb. I live at 2800 feet elevation and spend a lot of time at 5800 feet elevation. I’m assuming the stock jet is a .125 so I’ll try a .130 jet with the FMF pipe. I ordered a silencer on Amazon so the install wont happen till late next week. Did you raise the needle in your carb too? The jet in the stock carb was a .118 and it ran fine. I going to pull the owl off of the Chinese carb and check the jet size today. Thanks.
With the FMF at least, even the spark arrestor makes a noticeable difference to volume. It's pretty loud as is, but remove the screen and the bark gets even a bit sharper, too loud for my taste, especially with the cam and extra compression which ups the bark factor a bit also. I think the low end runs a little smoother with the screen in place also, seat of pants can't tell any difference to top end. I'm guessing it flows well more than the engine can really make use of considering the exact same size muffler is used for much larger and more powerful engines also.
I'm at the end stage of a major mod to my TW. It follows closely with what the Japanese are doing with the TW in a naked/scrambler style. With that goes away the airbox which is replaced with the small filters (see pics). And of course, this completely and dramatically changes the air flow so...
So heres the position Im in.
Im considering buying a new TW200 as my very first motorcycle. The price point meets my budget (max I can spend)
Ive read thru tons of posts about maintenance, and have watched just about every video on youtube.
Ive been riding mountain bikes my whole life, and...
This project may take a while to gain momentum, but I hope to have it up and running by mid-spring.
I've got one of PlacerLode's counter shaft extenders, so I've been looking for a suitable XT/TTR engine donor.
Well, I found this little gem on Craig's List, only 8 miles away! :cool:
Muffler change...2018 ?
Post #5 in this thread states that the muffler mounting changed in 2018. Does that mean that aftermarket pipes like the DG and FMF will no longer fit?
In May of 2018 I enquired to Precision Motorcycle Racks to see if they had thought of making one for the TW. Got a quick reply that it was next on the list...
Behold, this morning I received an email that it was on the web store.
And surprise, there are side racks too...
