The valve adjustment locknut backed out on my '04 (I obviously didn't tighten it enough) and it scrambled the motors internals, so I'm looking for a replacement. Will consider buying a whole bike depending on price. Thanks!
I have a motor out of an 87 if your interested.
damnit - thought i posted a reply an hour ago. sorry about that - i am in the Washington DC metro area, living in maryland and working in northern virginia. i am willing to travel for the right deal; i bought my tw in kentucky
I have a spare most-of-a-bike I was thinking about fixing up and using as a dirt-only one (no title) with a good motor. The guy I bought it from took out the CDI for another TW, and the wiring harness is hacked to shit but I have a replacement of both on their way to me. I'm located in Ellicott City, north of DC by like 40 minutes if you're interested. Not sure how much I'd let it go for, but not too bad. Can send pics if you'd like.
Damn that sucks man I had the exact same problem with my TW.
KJ, just KJ, ok.

There's a motor on eBay now if your still looking.. :-)
any one in particular? i see a few on there. are you the seller of any of them?
No, I'm not the seller.. just saw it while browsing then saw this post and figured I would try to help.
so i 'won' / bought an '88 motor (kicker and all )...and i realized i'm not 100% positive the motors are REALLY the same throughout the years (at least up to my '04). can anyone verify they really are identical (other than the kicker-related parts) or not? will it really bolt in after swapping over the carb/cdi, etc?
