Glad to have you, not really a tw motor anymore though hahaMaritime said:Ha, hadn;t seen this yet, caught up and ready for more LOL. Check out the Japanese market, they make all kinds of hop up shit for the TW
This is awesome. I'm planning on stripping it, pulling dents, then mudding it again. Just hopefully not as much mud this timecbrianroll said:

I wouldn't be opposed to an xr/xl lump if I could find one cheap enough that doesn't need a bunch. Yamaha blaster motor has caught my eye too, if only because kiley hates two strokes lolirk miller said:I was kinda hoping for this, or maybe an XR/XL motor or something. I know there is the CS issue with the fat tires, but I figure machining up an offset to weld to a sprocket or something might work just as well.

I grew up riding a Yamaha blaster, they really are good little motors. I sure tried with no avail to destroy mine. Well actually I did grenade 3rd gear. Wish I had kept the lump aroundfarmer92 said:I was about to suggest a blaster engine
Like jimmer’s little black blaster bike

Here's a few pics of where I'm planning to go next.
One of the neat/ quirky things that has always drawn me too the tw's is the balloon rear tire which in stock form is mounted on a 14" x 4.5" rim. Tire options are a bit limited unless you go with an atv tire, which is what I planned to do. The kicker is that there are multiple cases of people either having to trim the beads or use upwards of 100psi to seat the beads on the tw rim, of which there are several reports of damage to the tire and injury.
I am really hoping that it doesn't get destroyed too. At least it's insured but still it's a pain. That could be the case because I'm pretty sure it's like 80 lb.irk miller said:Man, I hope the same thing doesn't happen to your motor that happened to mine when I wasn't there to receive it the first attempt. I swear they trashed the motor having to take it back and re-deliver it.
Also, have they tried the ratchet strap method to getting the tires on? That's how I do all of my big tubeless tires like tractor tires and the trike tires.
