    Hello Everybody ,

    I follow this forum for a while and decide to introduce myself with a second post.

    My name is Peter and i'm leaving in Columbus Ohio.

    I just purchased a Tw200 2010 with 900 miles this week end.

    Thanks for everybody that help me find this !

    I just took care of it , mostly cleaning and some Lubrification ( chain ).

    Should I do anything special in term of maintenance ? It's pretty much brand new.

    Moreover I notice two little details :

    - There is 2 dots of rust , should I touch it up now ?

    - There is some kind of mix of water and rust on several black parts of the bike ( exhaust mainly ) is there any treatment to remove an prevent it ?

    Thanks a lot for your help , it's such a great community!

    Welcome very nice bike. Time to mod it . I would say that you should do a oil change if it has not had one already. 900 miles/1448 km's in the manual it says to have its first oil change at the 1000 km mark (621 miles).

    Welcome, nice bike.
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    6 months later,I know,I'm late...oh well. Take care of the rust now or you'll buy new parts or take care of more rust later. Yes,oil change,rejet the main jet and rotate the pilot screw 2-2.5 turns out.Your bike will run much cooler and stronger.
