Hello and welcome! Start by looking here:
I just picked up a 2010 TW200 yesterday with 984 miles. I live in central Pa. I am going thru what I think I should do --- like change the oil ( still need to get a oil filter). I put Shell Rotella 5W40 synthetic ( non energy conserving oil so should be good for clutch) since I use in my Virago 1100 and it works great. What is the best place on line to get supplies?
Also the chain is very loose when the bike is not running-how do I adjust to spec?
The battery in the bike is a Bike Master- is this OEM?? If I need a new one please give suggestion.
How do I do a search on the forum? I did find the "Search" but when I put in "How to adjust chain?" I got nothing.. What is a good maintenance manual to get and what is best place to purchase?- I like to do my own work.
Please give any suggestions for my new baby or how to best use this forum.
Thank you for your input.

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.
