    Site search .....

    Searching the site for specific information is best done by entering the following into a new page on your browser –it goes into the address bar at the top

    Site tw200forum.com (followed by what you’re looking for)

    So – if you are looking for tires – type into the address bar - site tw200forum.com tires

    This will only pull up links to pages from this site, ignoring all others – there’s often quite a few, and you can narrow down the results by trying different search terms, such as – site tw200forum.com front tire

    Likewise, if you have already posted a question, it’s always a good idea to then scroll down to the bottom of the page you have posted on – until you get to “Similar Threads” - this is where the site automatically searches for similar terms, giving the links to pages from the past

    If you can’t find what you’re looking for, don’t be afraid of starting a new thread to ask for advice – we’re always here to help …….

    Yes, the Google search syntax has changed....it used to have a colon after site....that no longer works. The space after .com is required, same as before.
    I have found over years of searching that using several different search terms, from general to more specific, i.e. tires the first time, then front tires, then Shinko, provides a better chance to find what you are looking for. As always, the Forum search bar is nearly useless.
