    Adventure Ready TW200 in Joliet, IL - Lower Price

    It's a 2003 Yamaha TW200 or TW-200 with 4100 miles on it and is street legal with clear title in my name. Bought it and built it for the wife to ride with but she decided she doesn't like riding. I built it for her so all the best parts are into it and was set up for adventure riding. I use it for around town now but that's about it. I’m asking 3600$ OBO with all the work and mods that have been done to it but still taking a loss. Now About the bike:

    Motor has rebuilt and tuned carb with several mods, Filter box mod with better filter, race coil for better starts, kicker kit added, stainless front exhaust pipe with rebuilt muffler, new Kevlar clutch pack, oil changed earlier this year, new battery, stainless bolt kit, all new top end gaskets when valves were adjusted. So much more but can't remember

    Chassis has new front trail tire w/tube. Heavy duty front springs and with Racetech gold valve emulators, replaced bearings, rear heavy duty spring on 3" extended swing arm with modified shock mount (stock one comes with it), new brakes both ends, heavy duty wide foot pegs, folding shift lever, tusk skid plate, LED lighting all around with Cyclops front and tucked up rear and taillight, Jimbo windshield, Cycleracks rear rack, modified seat with seat pad, XT metal 3.4 gal tank, tool tube, Pro taper bars with riser lifters, heated grips, Cycra hand guards, 12v socket, etc. plus many more updates and add ons..

    This is a great and fun bike for anyone from a younger rider to an advanced dirt biker to an older person looking to ride around. It’s also good for the shorter rider and handles like a dream. If you have any questions please ask. Have a box of spare and original parts including springs if they are to stiff, service manual, and owner’s manual and other items to go with it.

    Hey, I am way too poor to afford this bike, but I'm from Elwood! I've never seen another TW rolling around the Joliet area. Anyway, bump for a local dude!

    Can't say I have read any post on the forum regarding the install of "emulators" or fork valves on a TW. The thought of a variable fork oil orifice valve for compression impacts sounds like a real plus. Please share your impressions and opinions with the forum or post a link where we can read about the benefits, if any. I recently ordered a pair of YSS emulators for my scooter but have not installed them yet. Thanks
    Take care my Friend.........

    I found them to smooth things out and definitely helps with the impacts and nose dives.

    That is a fine example of a sorted out TW200. The things you did to it has a lot of labor involved. To buy a used stock one and put those accessories and features on it afterwards would be way more. If I was close by, I would look to buy it and sell mine!

    Neat bike! Do you by chance have any rough idea what it might cost to ship that bike to the west coast (Las Vegas)? I'm slowly looking for one but IL is further than I would want to drive for something. Good luck with the sale!
