    Hello



    I just picked up a 2005 TW200 today.



    Put about 75 miles on it and I can't wipe the grin off my face.



    What a fun little bike.



    I'm sure I will learn a lot from this forum about these bikes.

    Here is a picture



    As far as I can see it is bone stock.



    It only had a little over 2000 miles on it.



    Young kid drove it back and forth to school for a year until he got a truck.



    It runs great and has very little wear and tear.







    Can somebody delete the other two posted duplicates.

    Welcome! You can find a link to the TW service manual in the tech section. After reading the above quote, I would start with a thorough lube job and your service interval recommended adjustments.

    Hey Congrats! Nice lookin' bike! I just got one myself 2 weeks ago. Put 100 mi. on it right away, had a big grin, and it got bigger when I checked the gas mileage. 78mpg! Enjoy!

    Where'd you pick up that beauty? There's one just like that where I live in Oregon for sale, love the color scheme.

    Took your advice JP

    Oil and filter changed

    Plug replaced and chain tightened

    Everything lubed, greased and inflated

    Replaced a broken clutch lever too



    Now I'm just riding the heck out of it everywhere, my truck hasn't moved since I bought this thing.



    It is too much damn fun!

    Keep an eye on the chain. It wears really fast.

    Thanks qwerty, I'll probably put on new chain and sprockets soon.
