    Proud new owner

    Just bought my first tw200 today. It was owned by a 50 year old. He bought it last year as a left over he put 500 miles on it. The extras that were on a bike included dg exhaust, jet kit, k&n air filter, aftermarket seat cover, Renthal tall bars, different wider foot pegs, 4 oil filters, a extra lever, nice ricochet skidplate, rear rack with a 1.5 gallon gas can. Its a 2013 it looks like it never saw dirt no scratches anywhere. I paid 3500 for it was that a good deal.

    I think you did good considering the new 06's will be $4500.00 or more. You have several hundred dollars in extra's already.

    Go change the oil and clean the filter.

    Change the oil anyway - it's only a quart - gets rid of any moisture it may have in it while sitting ........

    To make it last a long long time, it should probably have 3 oil changes or more by the time it hits that mileage. The bike will love you for it!! Lots of junk comes out with that oil the first few oil changes.
