Vir n hulp wat slegs op n plaas rondry sal ek net n TF125 2stroke koop.

Geen valves :thumleft:
Geen olieruil stories nie :thumleft:
Letterlik ry en parkeer :thumleft:
Beter wringkrag laag af as soortgelyke 4slag :thumleft:
Loop BAIE koeler as 4slag :thumleft:
Ruik aansienlik meer aangenaam as 4slag :thumleft:
Uitlaat stiller as 4slag :thumleft:
TF125 definitief taaier as enige 4slag. :thumleft: :thumleft:
Ek stem nog n slag vir TF en een plus punt is dat die werkers nie sy kickstarter gaan afskop in die winter soos met die four strokes gebeur in koue wreld. Vriend van my het juis n nuwe TF by Hannes van Grabouw Suzuki gekoop jare terug vir gebruik naby Middelpos. Hy was nog nie een dag spyt. Lekker laag vir kort manne en hulle kan maar deur meganies onsimpatieke ore gery word niks sal pop want hulle kan rev.

I don't think a TW is very comfortable in ruts and sand. How available are those chubby tyres? You probably have a bigger chance of a puncture with a fat tyre.

Those fat wheels are a bad idea for sand, they follow every line and contour, and because they do not penetrate, they do not steer.

Jy ry ook moeilik n doring of spyker mis met hulle.

Vriend van my het vir lank plaas bikes reggemaak vir n ekstra inkomste. Hy s die TW 200's wat by hom beland het het nie ho kilos gedoen voor hulle ringe gekort het.
Gemiddelde klink na so 15 000 kms.

I bought a Suzuki Van Van 125 a while ago as the yamahas were crazy expensive and we needed a bike for a area which is all sand. This one is unbeleivable, has over 50 000km and all that has been replaced is the injector. The starter has now packed up (18k from the stealers!) so it has become a push start model for now.

My biggest issue with the TW200 here at the coast was frame rust. I don't know why they even bothered with that thin layer of paint, could just as well have used lipstick. Other than that, the leaking base gasket is a well-known issue with certain year models, mine had to be done 4 times.

Solid all-rounder otherwise.

I've had and used them all over the years. The best farm bike I ever had was a YZ 250 with am 18 inch rear wheel conversion. Cheap to buy, endless supply of free second hand tyres off my endure bike (and from friends), lots of fun, not boring, easy and cheap to maintain, goes faster than a lion can run (it's happened to me twice  :biggrin:) and it will help improve your riding skills.

Fok di motorfietse en kry vir hulle perde!! Oh ja, perde is deesdae duurder as motorfietse....

4slag werk beter as 2slag, want hy kan so poer poer aanvoeter waar di 2slag poeier soek, anders carbon hulle op soos genoem is.

Die AG se ratte is lekker kort, 1-4 is soos n bakkie in lowrange, sterk.

Kyk na bigboy se XTG125/200, copy van Yamaha se XTZ125, Enjin is n Honda copy van di indestructable CGL125. Of self die Puzey STR200. Cheap, alles ander hou op werk maar die enjin bly loop.

Die 2slag wat op-carbon is n storie wat nog uit die BSA Bantam dae kom. Die Japanese met hul akkurate oliemeet stelsels het nie daai probleem nie.

Baie van die werk op n plaas veroorsaak dat n 4slag te warm loop, stadige ry, lank luier, ens, en 2slag masjiene loop bai koeler as 4slag goed.

Soveel so dat n 4slag uitlaatpyp baie maklik jou droe koring aan die brand steek, wat jy NOOIT sal regkry met n 2slag pyp nie.

Nou ja, daashy, 2slag vir julle.

Ons buurman wat ons plaasie huur verkies nou weer di 4slag, want hy kan op di lande aanfoeter, agter di vee aanpoer, en bietjie vinniger ry ook.

Hy wil niks weet v n 2slag nie, want di ding vrek op stadige spoed, alhoewel hy n 2slag verkies vd spoed en illusie van krag.

Getting back to this topic.
Would the TF not be much heavier on fuel than the 4 strokes for slow farm use?
Regarding the mixing: does it mix itself or do you need to do it?
