Hey Charlie from Arkansas here
Just picked a 09 TW last week and then joined the forum
1st TW but not the 1st Yamaha though
The TW had 700 miles on it & had never had it's first service
So I took care of that (valves loose & chain dry ) and cleaned the pilot jet too
Today I added a Moose skid plate, UNI airfilter, BatteryTender brand Lithium battery
and have Emgo handguards and EBay pegs coming
I am also waiting on a new clutch lever too
11 old grandson stalled it on a steep hill and let it tump over, only hurt his pride & the lever
1st of many to come I'm sure
I'm a slow typer so I won't post much.
Just wanted to say hello & thanks for all the awesome info here
I did fill out my profile, so check it out for a little more info on US
1st John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Thanks for the welcome
Only the boys ride
They all rode as kids
The boys ride them HOGS, but they were eyeing the TW!
Nice to see a familiar face/ handle here
I bought this sickle to flip, $2k
very clean, extra low miles, needs a TLC in the maintenance area. Prefect candidate for me
BUT the power/coolness of the TW got us
and the grandson loves it & so do I
Replaced that clutch lever & added the emgo barkbuster/ handguards today
Ready for the grandson now!
Thanks again for the Awesome info, hope to see ya'll on the trail!
Welcome aboard, brother!
