It is with great sadness that I start to part out my TW.
Here is a lesson I learned the hard way.
Changed my oil at 9000 miles or so. Road 500 miles to my brother's house in Charlotte, NC where I relocated. Proceeded to use the TW for a daily driver in hot weather. Temps in the 90's consistently.
Riding consistently at highway speeds in excess of 60mph for weeks. Mileage reached 9900 and I experienced a sudden loss in power while riding. Motor quit and I coasted to a stop.
Inspection revealed almost no oil in the case. I was able to add 2/3 of a quart to reach the proper amount. Unreal!!
Lesson. Check the oil before every stinking ride!! I'm bummed.
A stupid and preventable mistake cost me the motor. Rod disconnected from piston, snapped the connector (so I'm told by a shop) and I cracked the case.
I'm told I need a new motor which it seems will be more than the bike's value.
So....here's some stuff I've added.
Mounted a Pelican case to it.
Three tractor fuel tubes. One holds the tool kit, the others more fuel.
Upgraded foot pegs from the guy from this forum.
Hand brush guards.
She's white with blue accents.
No scratches, plastics in great shape.
Everything but the motor is in good shape.
Pictures to follow soon. She's at the shop until tomorrow or so.
