Found the forum searchin for some info! looks great! Anwyas I ride a Honda Shadow ( phantom in thailand) ta 200. I love this bike and bought it over a kawasaki eliminator (el250 i think) based on condition and price. in hindsite i believe the el250 is the same motor setup as the zzr 250. vrmm vrrmm Anyways after owning my shadow for over a year and ready to trade it in I discovered there are restrictors placed in the end of the exhaust. they are caps with the tiniest of holes to push through. Remove these and she has heaps of pickup, cruises at 100-110 easy tops at 130kph after a wind up. It also now sounds how it looks! so dont do it if you like the quiet sound. I also read another thread about brakes. the ta200 has a rear disc on its solid wheel and twin spot front caliper. so my newly derestricted ta200 may get to hang round for a bit longer. Thought Id share this info for any others looking to buy these bikes or anyone that has one!
