    Hello all! I joined yesterday and bought my first TW200 today. It's a 2009 all stock and with only 88 miles on it - looks brand new. I found it shortly after it was posted on Ebay classified ad. Paid only $2500. The bike has sat for some time so it runs but when choke is pushed in it dies even after it is warmed-up nicely. Probably have to clean the carbs and put fresh gas in it. I will probably add some hand guards. I look forward to browsing the site. Thanks for all the helpful posts that I will be reading.



    My bikes of past: (sold each before moving on to next)



    2003 Honda 600RR

    1976 Harley Sportster

    2001 Yamaha FZ1

    2001 Yamaha Road Star

    2004 Honda 600RR

    2000 Yamaha V-Star

    2002 Suzuki GSXR600

    AND NOW ... 2009 Yamaha TW200

    Replace those crappy float bowl screws with some sturdy allen head screws while you're in there. Something tells me you'll be back in there a few times once you run across the carb tuning thread on here. You stole that '09 for that kinda coin by the way. Enjoy.
