Welcome to the mad house .....
Hi everyone! I'verecently picked up a 2002 tw200 in pretty good condition and I'm having a blast with it. I put a shinko 241 on the front after reading the recomendations on this forum and it really is a great choice. I'll be removing the carb soon in hopes of finding the cause of some issues it has so I'm sure I'll be requesting some input and advice from you guys as I work through it. Love the forum and looking forward to being a part of it!
Welcome to the forum!!
Throw 3 or 4 ounces of Lucas Deep System Fuel Cleaner in it and you might not even have to open the carb later...
1st John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Welcome, you are not too far from GaryL, he is a wealth of information on these machines. Wurtsboro is a beautiful area, I went up in a glider there a bunch of years back. It was awesome.
I ran sea foam through it just to clean it out a bit but the issue I'm having persists. It sputters and stalls only on very chattery terrain. Runs perfect on the road and semi rough terrain though.
Welcome. Read the tech section on carbs. Lots of good info and the best pictures. Start with the tweaks that cost little or nothing but time. Cheers

When you remove the float bowl, look for this white plastic thing. It is an anti-splash ring, supposed to keep the main jet fed with gas while the rest of the gas in the float bowl is sloshing around.... like on washboard. If it is missing, it will cause your symptoms. So will dirt in the float bowl. The photo is from https://tw200forum.com/forum/technica...ification.html
You don't have to remove the carb, just loosen the clamps and turn it to get at the four screws (JIS screws, not Phillips!) Replace them right away with SS Allen head ones for the next time you go into the carb.
