Hello and welcome! Congrats, nice looking TW!
I'm from Sri Lanka & just bought a 2006 Japanese TW200E.
I'm posting this thread to introduce myself
As i've observed this Japanese model has few differences with the US model.
It has a Kick Starter & a Round Head Light Factory fitted.
The rear tyre is a Bridgestone 204 & Front is a Shinko SR428. Both are in very good shape.
It has done only 10,000 Km & is in pretty good shape. I just changed the oil which was used in Japan & it was very dark(burnt i must say). I checked the Oil & Air Filters, but no noticeable damage. So i filled it up with SAE 20W-40 Oil this time. Then checked the valve tappet clearances and adjusted it
Only has 200 Km with it myself & hope to move in to Mobil 1 4T if everything goes well.
Here are some pictures of my new ride.
hi and welcom ,nice color combo .
Welcome, wise choice with the mobil 4t. Can you show close up pics of your factory round headlight?

welcome to the forum! That's a great looking bike.
A buddy of mine likes to chase his girlfriend around the globe. She works for the ICRC, and she was assigned to Sri Lanka a few years back.
The trailway is the perfect bike, in the boonies of Sri Lanka, or the boonies of California! Welcome to the addiction! m.
