    Hello Everyone So i just bought a 2004 tw200 with 3k miles for 1,800. It looks like i got a deal!?

    I have to have it shipped (or else drive 7 hrs!)

    Any tips on who to use for shipping? Or who not to use!?



    Also- once i get it, what sort of problems should i look for as i refurbish it? I dont want breakdowns on the trail...And im a bit of a maintenence freak.



    Finally- to store it... Any pre-fab or knock together compact sheds out there that fit the bike closely?

    The yamaha specs show the height as 3'8" (44.1")... Does that include the mirrors?

    That thing most likely needs no refurbishing. Change the oil, grease the chain, make sure the crucial screws are tight and twist the throttle. Welcome to fat tire freedom!

    You guys make it sound too easy- so really there aren't any known issues with these? Gotta love Japanese reliability! The quotes I'm getting to ship are $500 btw.

    It would really help you out if you would answer the question of where is the bike and where are you.
