    so i bought an 1989 tw200 the other day for $200 it has been siting for quite some time i have drained the tank cleaned it out, changed oil and filter, spark plug made a gasket for it and fired it up started on the second kick i have changed the oil again because it picked up a bunch of sitting particals lubed everything and so on. The question that i have is this the bike runs but if i give it gas to quick it dies i have to roll on the gas, second question crusing around the nieghborhood is easy on it until forth were i believe what is going on is the cluth plates sticking cuz when i release the clutch the rmps stay the same for a few seconds then fouth goes and fifth is fine. Any ideas what i could be looking at.

    Did you use an oil that is specifically for motorcycles with wet clutches?

    Open the pilot jet screw 2 1/2 turns. It is called the idle mixture screw if you are over 50. Check out the carb tuning tutorial. This was the only adjustment I made on my carb and it made a huge difference and the engine runs perfectly.



    BTW, a most excellent score! Congratulations!
    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    So I guess I had made a big mistake (possiably) apperently I put my synthetic in for my truck instead of the yamalube from the dealer so I removed the oil cleaned clutchs rapleced with oil and now it revs fine and does not try to pull with the clutch in. But still slips in fourth so I think I am going to order a new clutch kit for it next week. (well see how that goes)but I have another question my tw has an XT tank on it the seat does not fit all to well, it could be a different seat as well, but I was wondering if antbody has tried putting on an xt desert tank, it hold 4.1 gallons vs. the oversized tw tank that only holds 2.7g any input will help im just getting back into bikes after a long time.

    Probably a bad camera or shaky hands?



    It's probably running too lean. Adjust the pilot screw!

    Hard to really tell much based on the little of the video that actually loaded, but sounds like the basic idle speed is way too low which keeps the engine from being able to transition correctly when the throttle is applied. I keep my idle up to help the beast maintain a bit of oil pressure.
