    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...

    Hello fellow T-Dubbers, First post here after lurking and marvelling at the vast knowledge and experience of those who have come before... After a couple of years trying to find one in my price range where I live (on an island in Latin America) I bought a TW200X in April 2021 and have been...

    I was looking at a TW carb diagram online OEM Parts (rockymountainatvmc.com) and I see that the diagram shows an air screw at the bottom of the bowl #27 on the diagram. It also shows the pilot screw #16 and plug #32. I read posts on this site and folks are talking about air / mixture...

    It’s a 2021 with 40 miles on it, was stored for the winter and will not run now. It starts up but dies when you use the throttle. It was only idling on choke but after cleaning the carb, and putting in a new spark plug, it runs without but still sounds terrible (like it wants to stall) then once...

    Hello everyone! I’m new here. Here’s the story. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I recently bought a 2012 TW with only 100 miles on it. I took the carb off and had Yamaha in Houston go through it for me. After I put it back on the bike it started up great, purring beautifully. Once I would...

    So my 2005 has 550 miles on it now, about 200 are mine. I'm in Idaho, elevation ~2,500 ft and plan to ride up to 6,000 often. When I first got it, I noticed the revs would hold at idle and it made riding pretty stressful, especially on city streets. I changed the air filter, oil, oil filter...

    I have an '87 TW that I bought new in '88. My first bike. Glad I kept it. It fell into disrepair when my both my wife and dad had cancer. I've been a member for about a year, looking thru old posts for info on carb cleaning and tuning tips. Lot of good stuff, and many talented people who are...

    Hi folks, New to TW200s and this forum. Recently bought a 1991 with 9800m on it, sight-unseen (long story). Turns out the carb body had a float pin post sheared off, and original replacements are $250-$300. So, I thought I'd take a risk see if I could make this work for $45...

    I'm looking at getting a TW200 and I have an older DRZ with a terrible ethanol problem. I ride in California. The DRZ will get so crudded up that the carb has to be rebuilt. Are there newer model years of the TW200 that handle the ethanol-gas better? I see some posts on how to handle it, but...

    Hey guys! I'm new to the forums. I picked up an '03 TDub last summer. It's got 3000 miles on it and it runs like a top. I would like to get a DG2 slip on. The installation of the actual pipe is pretty simple from what I've seen. My main issue is choosing the correct jetting. From what...

    hi all, i've got a 2004 tw225e (japan model) which i've just bought recently from Japan. Done a couple of test rides and looked perfectly fine except for 1 thing, it was working quite lean. I came to this conclusion mainly cause : - Spark plug was on the white-ish side (quite a bit) - idle...

    Rebuilt the carb on my 2003, full acid dip treatment, etc. I also replaced the fuel line, added the filter and did a bunch of other "non-fuel" stuff that I'll cover in a different post. Since doing so, I get no fuel going to the carb. I can fill the tube to the carb with some squeezing and...

    I bought a nice looking TW few months ago that I knew had a carb problem. I cleaned it and it rode fine and then just got hard to start again. I have already ordered a Mikuni VM28-418 and new twister and throttle cable and eliminate the old air box. After reading through the forum I couldn't...

    Hey everybody, I'm 19 years old and a first time TW owner. Just bought a 1994 TW200 in amazing condition with 940 miles on it. Sat for 15ish years with sparse maintenace from what I was told. When we brought it home, it would run very poorly at idle but was able to take a spin around the yard...

    Hey guys, I have a feeling this might be a gummed up carb issue. Just wanted to hear some other opinions before I get down and dirty with the carb. My poor ol' tee dub (1995) has been under a tarp for the best part of a year last year. I have brought the old girl out so she can feel the wind...
