    Howdy and noob from Sweet, Idaho

    I was looking for some info the last week or so on the tw200 and came across you all. Cool.
    Just picked up the deal of the century (for once) and brought home yesterday a 2008 with 196 miles. Rode it a couple of times and he stuck it in a barn and got it out once a summer and started it.
    I couldn't get it started when I got it home so I charged the battery, took off the carb and cleaned it out and got fresh fuel. Started right up but it's a bit rough and can't get it to idle very well. Seems to be fine once I get going. Anyway, gonna enjoy it and I'll be hitting the hills with it shortly.

    Welcome to the forum from your neighbor in Garden Valley. Enjoy your new to you TW.

    Might want to clean out the tank and clean the carb one more time. Just to be safe. In line fuel filter maybe.

    Nice find.

    Definitely look at the pilot jet again.
    Great find!
    I'd just replace the jets and not waste more time cleaning them.
    Then have some fun!
