    New Member!! New Project!!

    Excited to pick up my 1999 TW200 project tomorrow and thought I would saw hello and show off my new prize. Haven't seen it in person but hopefully with the low mileage it shouldn't be that hard to get going...hopefully.

    Welcome to the forum DrTerrible,

    Here's hoping you don't encounter major problems getting her up and running!

    Hopefully for $300CAD I can make my money back if I can't get it to go and thanks for the warm welcomes. I am keeping my fingers crossed that she is a runner.

    It was running when it was parke a few years ago she told me. She just doesnt have time or the knowhow to fix it...not sure I do either but going to try. Any suggestions on where to start? I was thinking of putting some lube down into the cylinder and let it sit in case rings are stuck, change oil and spark plug, air filter then just go from there. Anything else i should do before trying to run it?

    Welcome! Hard to kill any TW, specially a '99. I got mine for way more than that and it was rough, but I have refined it over the years and love having kick and electric start. Keep us posted on progress.
