    TW200 Heavy Duty Adjustable Chain Guide?

    Hi folks. I've had a few TW200 riders ask me to manufacture a heavy duty adjustable chain guide similar to what I offer for the DR650 (photo below). Before I proceed with the project I wanted to gauge the interest level here and also ask what rear sprockets are most common/popular. If you have any input please post here or send me a PM.

    Thank you,

    John

    If you build it they will buy it. Well you got the high speed guys(LOL) with 42 T, then a lot of stock at 50 T, then 55T is popular and it seems there are 60-65T on some.
    Twin 2014 TW200's made side by side on the assembly line, Moose rear racks, Protaper Bars one with risers, DG oval pipes. rejetted carbs, 130 main jets, 2 -.020 shims on the needles and @ 2 1/2 turns on the pilot screw, #34 pilot jets, Aserbis hand guards, Shinko 241 front tires, modified Krator foot pegs, 14-55t sprockets, Ricochet skid plates and 90 degree fuel filters.

    Just a thought as it might be easier to gather the numbers than it would be to sift through each reply. You could start or conduct a poll which I think would better way to see the answers to your questions.

    Something like:

    Interest in guide

    Yes

    No

    What size sprocket do you use

    (list some sizes)


    To post or start a poll I think it is in the "additional options" section when starting a new post. I don't know if you can modify the post you started here but click on go advanced options or ask a mod. You might have to start a new thread in order to create the poll if you're not allowed in the edit function.

    I don't know....looks more sophisticated than anything else on the TW. Would hate to give my bike delusions of grandeur.
    Actually with a properly adjusted chain I have never experienced a chain derailment nor suspected excessive side-to-side play of the chain so close to the rear sprocket. What need is this guide addressing?

    The need to spend money! We are all guilty of it to some degree or other.

    Not sure if you've posted the poll, yet, but I'd be interested, and I plan to use either 42, or 47 teeth.

    Good Luck!
