    New guy with a problem

    I found myself at the local Yamaha dealer ordering a 15 tooth front sprocket, what the problem is I don't have a tw yet. Saturday I will.

    Congratulations MT and welcome to the forum!

    You have completed the first step which is to recognize that you have a problem, the next step is to acknowledge that there is no cure. You are also at a significant disadvantage if your pockets are already empty. Part of our mission here is to do that for you.

    Where are you located at?

    Post some pics when you get your bike,

    Brian

    Welcome mtpockits. =empty pockets?

    When I saw your post headline I was hoping your problem was with the TW and not something more personal like toenail removal er supp'in! Thankfully it was TW related. Good luck with your TW...this Saturday!

    Welcome New guy! I can totally relate!!! However, you've come to the right place for therapy(TW therapy, that is) As TW-Brian mentioned, you have completed the first step and denial will only make it worst. Now that you have made your first purchase for a TW enhancing part, even before possessing one of these wonderful, addictive machines. You must now take out a second mortgage in order to quench the thirst and start your parts search for the elusive kick starter, mega big bore/ stroke up grade, 6spd. conversion, rear disc. brake setup, etc. ........

    I can totally relate! ......and the cool thing about this place, is the kindred spirit, they tell me I am normal!

    What kind of guy buys parts for a bike he does not have yet? You will do well on this site. I had my kicker, barkbusters, a new tire picked out, and some other parts a few months before I found the right bike.

    You might as well pickup a left side gasket while your at it. May need it after pulling that cover. Hopefully not but what a bummer if you did and had to make another trip.

    Welcome aboard!

    I ordered my rack before I picked up my TW but the TW was already ordered and payed for. Not even two months of riding and I ordered a better tire for off road.

    Welcome from Maryland. Make sure you use a torque wrench on the two bolts holding the front sprocket. They strip easy.
