  1. Carburetor torque specs

    Technical Help
    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...
  2. Compression vis-a-vis adjusting the carburetor

    Technical Help
    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...

  6. Looking for the tube that connects the airbox to the carb

    TW200 Classifieds
    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...
  7. Snorkel installation

    Technical Help
    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...
  8. Pink OEM Fuel Lines are way too small

    Technical Help
    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...

  11. ***PITCHED***Free: Horrifying 1987-2000 Carburetor

    TW200 Classifieds
    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...

    Does anyone have photos or dimensions for the part pictured below? (photo taken from another thread here on the forum) It is the small slotted black plastic plug that fits into the outside of the carburetor right beside what I believe is the air-cutoff valve. I've managed to partially destroy...

    TW200 Classifieds
    Hi everyone, I bought a 1989 tw200 that didnt run. I was told it needed a small part in the carb. I bought a rebuild kit, and when I went to install it, noticed that the area where the nozzle/main jet holder screws into had a small chip in it. I installed the kit anyways, but the bike wont run...
