    You know, TW has a pretty study engine and I think you'd be ok putting on many more miles before a rebuild. I have rings put in my at 7,000 miles, just because the engine was apart. I wish I hadn't. Another break-in period....was hell. There are members here, or at least on the previous site that reached miles into and over 20,000 miles. QWERTY, I believe, has put over 40,000 on his, w/o a rebuild.



    I say put the money into good tires, steering bearings or other mods you deem most appropriate. I'm sure your TW with 9,800 miles is in good health. Unless of course, if the oil was never changed

    thats good to hear, i will give it a test run and row it through all the gears.



    could be fun to send it to Maxpower RPM's and see what kind of bore and stroke he could come up with, lol

    If it's been taken care of and not badly thrashed it should be good for another 20,000 miles at least.

    I just rebuilt my 07' at 30K miles. You will probably need a valve job before that so go ahead and do the rings when you do the valves. I had to bore mine because of scoring.



    I did a valve job at 23k and now I'm doing the valves again at 30k because I have the engine apart for the rings.

    If buying a used bike with all that mileage on it, I would rebuild it or have it rebuilt. You probably don't know the history of the bike. Besides that, you know you will have a dependable bike for a long time if maintained properly after the rebuild.

    Being the frugal sort, after changing the oil and filter, I would set the valve clearances, and check the cylinder compression. If all is OK, I would ride it until it doesn't go anymore. Then think about a rebuild.

    10K until overhaul ---I sure hope not. If in doubt do a compression check on the bike, and ride it to see if it's running alright.



    I don't know how many miles between overhaul on a TW200 but I have had many small displacement bikes and found that around 15-25,000 miles I get some noticeable piston slap and oil consumption starts to increase. When I don't like the rate of oil consumption I go to the first oversize set of piston and rings and bore out the cylinder.



    I'm not sure how many miles for the valves 40-65,000 miles maybe - unless something strange happens before--I would guess that carbon build up and/or the springs getting weak over time would be common causes for a valve job. I plan to remove the head at 25,000 miles and look at the valves. I'm hoping that they (the valves) will last until I have to go to the second oversize of piston and rings. And bottom end should go over 100,000 miles--- I would guess.



    But I don't see too many people putting those kinds of miles on these bikes and I don't know if I will live long enough to see that many miles either.



    That's one persons wild assed guess based on my ownership of other small displacement bikes.



    Do a good pre-buy inspection and good luck.

    The TW200 may be slow but the Earth is patient.
