Im looking to buy a used TW on sunday. Anyone have a few pointers on what to look for?
It needs a set of keys and a battery. Is there any way i could pop start it?
Any pointers would be awesome!
I:, damn.. i was hoping for a way to bypass the electric system . Any other thing?s i should pay attention to on these bikes
How long has it been sitting? How much are they asking? What year?
If it has been sitting a while, smell the gas tank -- take the cap off and get a good whiff -- if it smells like shellac the price goes down. Tank and carb will need major cleaning.
Look for oil leaks around the cylinder base gasket and valve covers and under the engine / on top of the skid plate. If you find any the price goes down.
Look at the chain -- if rusty and stiff the price goes down.
Do the tires have rubber on them and do they hold air?
Good luck and post what happens.
Long live the internal combustion engine!
Hopefully its in decent shape..
Well I bought a bike. When I got there it turns out it was a Yamaha ttr 225. Any thoughts?
They said Yamaha tw200. I got there and its a ttr225. I never even knew the ttr existed. I'm thinking about gutting the motor and looking for a two that needs a engine. That way I'm 25 cc bigger and have a six speed trans
