    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...

    Just shipped my brand new 2022 TW200 to Germany only to find out that I will never be able to register it here in Europe and make it street legal due to long standing EU emission norms. What to do? Does anyone need one??

    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 bought a new 2021 TW from a dealer a few months ago in the middle of winter. When I brought it home, I put Stabil in the tank and put the battery on a trickle charger. I'm in MN, so it was subzero outside at the time, but the bike is in a heated garage. Last week I started up the bike to take...

    So this all started about midway through a week long trip to camp. I first started noticing it in the woods if I was going real slow and went to roll on the throttle or when I was taking off from a stop, id have a very noticeable stumble in low rpms where the throttle would flatten off and...

    I believe the bike is having a carburetor issue I ain't sure. It's a 87 TW200, with the original carburetor on it. Been looking on Amazon and eBay for a carburetor that would fit it as a replacement. Wouldn't mind some recommendations from you all and the link to the carburetor if possible...

    Hey now, I'm just buying a tw200 and it needs a float bowl for the OEM carburetor. The former owner mis-plsced and can't find it. Also, i need the rear turn signal lights with stalks and all hardware. Thanks in advance, I'm looking forward to getting this thing running after a few years...

    I plan on doing a carb clean and partial rebuild soon since I'm dripping gas from the overflow hose. Based on what I've read on here, it's probably either a worn o-ring on the valve seat or my float isn't seating properly. I plan to replace the float chamber gasket, the entire valve seat...

    I'm resurrecting a '82 XT200 and an finding getting the bike to idle is a challenge. Compression is only 90 psi and I'm looking for validation that this could be some of my issue. I added a tablespoon of motor oil into the cylinder and compression picked up to 130 psi, so it would appear rings...

    I bought a 1996 TW200. Odometer reads 1650. Battery was dead and replaced. Throttle rusted and froze. I freed the throttle. Compression is 140psi cold. Fuel system is clean and fresh. I did not run it before bringing it home. My bad. I started it up with the choke full out. It ran very fast and...

    Hey guys, fresh to the page and the TW200 Game.. Just picked up a 1992 and want to simplify it by removing everything not needed.. Started tackling the spaghetti wiring mess last night but I figured i'd hop on here and ask the pros.. Basically I want to keep the headlight/taillight (Would like...

    Someone on this forum posted a link for this carb in the beginning of this year but unfortunately I couldn't find the original post Anyway, US $47.66 for a brand new carb, cables and a throttle housing grip and 2 pro taper grips was an offer that I couldn't ignore so I proceeded to order one...

    Hi I'm new here. I bought a 2006 TW200 that needs a little work but overall is in good shape with 5000 miles on the clock. It's surprising to see that parts for a fairly popular bike are so hard to come by. I need the hose that connects the airbox to the carburetor. Nothing on Amazon nor Ebay...

    So as part of my bike "restoration" I treated myself to a new snorkel. I ripped the mouse-eaten, rotted one out. Now, I cannot get the new one in. Perhaps it's because I have the upper body strength of a 10 year old, but I'm also open to the idea that I'm doing this wrong. I've got it oriented...

    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...

    I was riding my 2005 tdub home from work the other day and all of a sudden it ran rough and died. I was able to start it right back up and limp it home barely with the choke on. basically in a high idle. It starts up fine even without choke but won't rev at all off of idle. I ran a bunch of...

    Float post was broken by P.O. in an attempted rebuild. Carb was then ultrasoniced in some kind of solution that immediately tarnished everything. Then it came to me whereupon it was placed into a bucket of Chem-Dip and forgotten about for over 2 years. Chem-Dip had transformed into a terrifying...

    I have a 2005 TW200 (I bought new) that hasn't been run for about 4 or 5 months. I can get it to run only with the choke wide open. After it starts wide open and I slowly close the choke, about halfway in it stops. I have taken the 2-year old carb apart and cleaned and blown out everything...
