    I have been fiddling with this stupid carburetor for ages. Right now I have the #114 main jet and stock main jet holder, one small shim on the needle and the air/fuel mixture screw is backed out 2 full turns. That is the best I have been able to get it but it's still not great. I can do about...

    I have an 87 TW that I can't get to run right. I recently rebuilt the carb with some Chinese rebuild kit off Amazon, and after fiddling with the adjustment screw it runs fine at idle and low speeds, but it does not run well in higher gears and I can't get it to go above 35 or so. I have messed...

    I have an '87 TW and I think the stator has failed. It's not charging the battery, when you start the bike then take the battery out it measures like 2-3 volts, and when you take the plug off the regulator and check resistance from the yellow and white wires to the frame there is very...

    Hello I am new to this forum and from what I have gone through so far, it seems to be a wonderful place to find information. I need a stator for an 87 and can not find one anywhere not even aftermarket. Does anyone know where I can find one? Or does anyone have one for sale?

    Hi guys, im having a bit of trouble with my 87 TW. With the lights on, the engine misfires at high revs and has really low power (max speed 60kmh), but if i turn the lights out the thing turns in to a Beast and has loads of power. Currently when i have the lights on on idle, the lights are...

    New member here, relatively new to using forums and brand new owner of a TW200. I know enough about forms to know that older members sometimes don't like rehashing issues that have already been discussed, that said I will gladly read anything already posted if someone could point me in the right...

    I just got my motorcycle permit and decided to go with a TW200 as my first street legal bike. It is an '87, 2,300 miles, I paid $1500 for it. I've had it for a few months, but just now got it plated last week. I added a new fender, DG slip on exhaust, and some cheap hand guards. I'm loving this...

    Hello Everyone, I just wanted to start by saying I absolutely love my 87. I bought it a few months ago in July and put about a thousand miles on it through August but started to have problems with it. The symptoms are as follows: 1. Battery is dead but I could kick start but it was very hard...

    I splurged recently and ordered Yamaha fuel lines for my bike. I see no freaking way these fit to the carb or petcock adapters, so I am using some 1/4" tubing I picked up at an Auto Parts store. Why does Yamaha sell this line for our bikes? I'm sure this has been covered here before but I...

    Ok, I promised LT I would post up about what I'm working on. Maybe others can add their experiences and knowledge so that we can all learn more about these little burros. :icon_thumright: What I'm doing here is really not very original. I've read about at least one other TW owner who made a...
