    Can anybody confirm that the valve clearance for a 2010 TW200 is as follows

    Intake 0.05-0.09 mm (0.002-0.004 inch)

    Exhaust 0.11-0.15mm (0.004-0.006 inch)

    Found these numbers for an older model, not sure if there were any changes for the 2010 model.



    Since we are at that, anybody aware of ANY changes from older models to a 2010? I have the '87-'90 manual which I found on this site

    The manual you have is from '87-'00. The place you found that manual on this site will also have a 'supplement' manual for 2001 and newer bikes.



    Yes, there are changes...

    Checked the "main manual" which I found on this site, it states '87-'90. Supplement manual made not reference to the valve clearance.

    Am I correct to assume that your remark "same clearance for years" means that it is still the same?

    Yep, same clearances for all years.



    My mistake on the manual years (I see that on the manual now too), but get the supplement as that covers newer TW's CV carb, disc brake, and electrical.



    I hate to speak in absolutes, but everything will be covered in the main manual (spec's, procedures, quantities, etc.) except for what has changed on the 2001+ TW's, and that will be covered in the supplement. In other words, if its not listed in the supplement then use the main manual for reference. If a discrepancy shows its face then best to ask.

    Thanks for the tips. This site is really, really helpful.

    On the left side panel of your bike (the opposite) side of your tool kit. Remove the left side panel and all the specs are on the sticker on the back side. At least on my 2009 they are.

    But the sticker lies about the idle mixture adjustment.

    '07 TW200:

    15/50 sprockets, O-ring chain, D2Moto foot pegs

    tweaked carb (127.5 jet, 0.019 needle shim, idle screw @2.25),

    When adjusting valves, which measurement should be used? eg Intake is 0.002 - 0.004. Should I set valves at 0.002, somewhere in between, or 0.004? Is there a benefit by setting to the lower number or is there a benefit setting to the higher number? Which number makes the valves tighter, the lower number or the higher number? I ask these questions because I don't know the answers and I haven't been able to find the answers in any search that I've done.



    Thank you for your patience and answers.
