    Brock, your TW looks great. What can you tell me about that Acerbis disc brake cover?



    Bart



    Thanks Bart. I bought it simply for vanity reasons. I found it on ebay for $40 back in 2010. It was brand new but was intended for an 1994 XR 400. Pretty much all the Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki standard forks used the same Acerbis guards. I have posted links for the different sites somewhere here in the forum. It was under the performace column.



    P.S. I am the FIRST to admit that my tw spends more time in the garage than on the dirt, AND I am the first to admit that I am more concerned with it looking "COOL" than being fast. Because how fast can 14hp really go?



    Have a great weekend. Thank you for the nice comments.

    More concerned with looking cool? I have no idea what you are talking about.

    Me either. I was never and I am still not cool. But the oil cooler kept my TDub cool for the ride Sunday.

    Supposedly the TW203 and TW204s are supposed to be dual sport tires for on and off road.

    They appear to be more street ready than off-road. Looking closer to stock with a different pattern.
