Is this for a TW125 – 200 – or 225 engine ?
Hi, does anyone know if there are part numbers for a full complete engine to be purchased should it be required , if the cost of repairing out cost a replacement engine ?
If this is not the case has anyone asked at a dealer in USA if they can be purchased from factory
Sorry , yeah 200cc ( 1996 model year )

Ha,ha,ha yeah the avatar is funny , but true in many ways
There is nothing wrong with mine at moment, but I thought if they were not to expensive if/when the original engine has to come out for repair/ overhaul you can slip another unit in and ride bike whilst repairing old unit , it was just something that I had been wondering about as you can do this with car engines ( reconditioned)
Might be cheaper, and definitely easier, to buy a spare bike. But if you want a spare engine buy a used one off ebay and rehab that. Then it'll be ready if you need it.

Good question, I know Japanese parts are not cheap , so would not be surprised if the new unit was £1000 plus ( great British pounds ) plus vat at 20% and then you would poss have shipping on top of that , unless that was absorbed if a uk Yamaha dealer would order it, who would require part no .
The issue I have is that there are not a lot of 200cc models here in uk as they were not an official import , the inconveniences of buying a partially spent motor to rebuild back up using new/ used parts could out-way cost of a new motor by the time you have shipping on from USA and parts bought, you guys are lucky as you have plentiful supplies out there so it’s more viable for you to buy poss a full bike or blown motor and do it that way
