Looking good Alex...i have the same mirrors, handlebar and hand guards as you and i clamped/mounted the mirrors right to the bars (not on the bar ends)...remove the bar end piece and clamp them right onto the protapers...here are a few pictures of mine...no drilling necessary, they are less likely to get knocked off than the stock ones (or if they were on the bar ends for that matter) and i'm now looking under my arms at traffic through the mirrors instead of having to move my arms to see traffic with the stockers

THNAKS POINT! yeah i bought those mirrors because you showed me where to get them haha. Would you mind taking a pic of the way your controls are mounted and how you ran the cables? I Think thats my issue is I may have re routed the cables wrong thats why i dont have enough slack to move the contols where i want, to be able to fit the mirrors in. When i originally bought the mirrors I wanted to do them the way you had them haha.

Cool Mirror's! Your bike is looking good. Here's my Christmas present, a new Ricochet skid plate.

i must have forgotten
...i'll take some photos tonight or this weekend sometime of my cables and controls...the difference may be how my clarke tank connects vs the stock tank...i may have had to reroute 1 cable but i feel like i didn't reroute any just had to run it under one of the connections to the tank and that was it

i also noticed that you mounted your grips, handguards, hand controls then lever perches and i went grips, hand controls, lever perches, mirrors then hand guards...might give you a couple extra inches with the cables...i'll try to get a good photo of where the bars clamp on too since there are measuring lines on the bars...how far you rocked the bars back towards you and how you twisted your hand controls and lever perches will have an effect as well...obviously everyone likes things a little differently...i'm 6' tall for reference

awesome thanks point! I will see if i can arrange the controls like you had it and see if I can get it to fit those mirrors. I just remember when i had the light control next to the clutch lever when i would pull the lever init would hit it, so I will have to just mess with it some more to see if i can get it right. I am 6'3 and i put it on the middle adjustment mark on the protaper bars between the 2 bar clamps if that makes sense.

hopefully these help a bit...sorry for the crappy cell phone photos...i didn't cut the handlebar at all...





the center of the crossbar pad is about 4" from the light display

























as you can see the clutch cable and the 2 cables to the carb run above the bolt for my clarke tank...i believe you can manage this with a stock tank?

no problem Alex...let me know how you make out or if you need anything else...the cables going around the head tube are tight only when you crank the bars all the way over as shown in the photo and who does that unless you're pushing your bike around so it doesn't really affect riding

I am going after the "super moto" look and feel with my T-dub. The tires I have are classified as enduro tires but i wouldnt recommend them for actual off-roading. just street and light fire roads. I have not taken my T-dub off road and dont plan on taking it in the dirt, thats what my race bikes are for because I race motocross
Point would be able to give you some great info On tires though i am sure.

How you like your tire set up? Have you road many trails yet?



I'm trying to make up my mind on which new rubber to get

thanks Alex but i think there are a lot more qualified guys on here to help Twowheeler with his tire choices...from what i have read a many seem to like the Shinko SR244 "Golden Boy" up front cause it's a good all around tire, better than the stock offroad, rides well on the road and cheap...with the stock tire in back for the same reasons...you can get into the big ATV tires for the rear which will give you better offroad capabilities but road riding usually suffers...i would say it depends mostly on your on/off road riding percentages

looks good Alex!...glad everything worked out...keep us updated
...my next set of tires may be similar to yours cause i ride mine on the street more than offroad so i'd look at the smoother bridgestones or the shinkos...but this year i'm hoping to get a couple guys together from my area that ride TWs and do some offroad riding...if i start doing it a lot i may pick up a golden boy for the front...or a 250cc 4 stroke dirt bike
...if you like the sumo style TW look for Sebastian (macbig2k1)...he did a great job with his...my other bike is a sumo bike so my TW won't be going that way



picture of Sebastian's bike...

Thanks very much, it isnt done yet. The last 3 upgrades are in the mail so when they get here my build will be done. I will make a new thread called " ITS ALIVE" or something of that nature so look out for it if you get the chance.
Also so far I love my bridgestones only put 200 miles or so on them but so far so good, make the bike handle great on the street.
