    Which year or does it matter?

    So I've been looking around for a used TW and was wondering if there are any particular model years I should be staying away from or things I should be on the lookout for regardless of age. Hopefully I can find one that hasn't been beat to death.

    2001+ have a front disk brake. Which is nice.

    To my knowledge tw's haven't really changed too much over the years, other then a slight makeover in 2001.

    1987 has a unique electrical system that has had some issues for some owners in the past. 2000 and below have kickstarters and drum front brakes. 2001 and up don't have kickers.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    Thanks for the information. Overall my impression is they are pretty good little bikes. I've owned Hondas and Suzukis in the past but have never a Yamaha. Thanks again.
