    Welcome Austin. There's a pretty good bunch here. Longtime riders and very knowledgeable. Oddly, I've had several TWs, but somehow find I really like my 1987. It ain't much to look at but runs superbly.

    There is an aftermarket cdi that makes up for this shortcomming.



    It's programable!
