    A few weeks ago I took my 2002 TW on a ride through the Ouachita National Forrest. My friend Juan and I drove out from Round Rock, TX for a 4 day weekend and had a blast!! The roads were all very well maintained... a little too well for our taste but the scenery was great and we found enough...
  2. Align sprockets

    Technical Help
    I took my TW200 in for servicing, and afterwards it wouldn't roll in neutral very well. It rolled much better before. I'm assuming they did something with the chain and tightened things so that the sprockets weren't aligned. I greased up the chain pretty good but that didn't seem to help...

    Technical Help
    OK so I was rocking my TW around the Pink Coral Sand Dunes near Zion in southern Utah (definitely worth a visit).. when I finally derailed my chain and got it tangled up realllllly good under the crank case. I was able to loosen it by turning the bolt on the left crankcase until it slackened up...
  8. Need Help finding Replacement part. Not really sure the name of the piece.

    Technical Help
    So this piece of my bike broke off. I was hoping someone here could tell me the actual name of it so I can start looking for a replacement piece. I figure it is an important part of the bike and I shouldn't really ride without it. It is basically a sort of rubbery track that the chain slide on...
  9. San Francisco Mechanic Recommendations

    General Discussion
    Hello TW Forum! It has been a while since I have posed on this site. I just completed a cross-country move from Washington, DC to San Francisco, CA--and it is riding season here! But, before I can hit the streets, I need some urgent maintenance work to be done on my bike. While its urgent, it...
