Hello,



My name is Jean-Luc, I live in France, I am 43 years old.

And I have a big problem with my 89 TW 200.

The 2 screws of my exhaust are broken. Screw are welded in the cylinder head.

In France a cylinder head cost 740€, very expensive.

I have seen on ebay there is one 2005 head cylinder.

Do you think is it compatible with my 1989 TW.



I would like repair my TW, because i like it and tw 200 is very rare in France. (Only 63 TW was sold in 1989 by Yamaha).

Pardon for my bad english.



Regard's

Your English is much better than my Franch, absolutely no need to apologize. Yes, they are the same part numbers:

2005

CYLINDER HEAD ASSY

15A-11110-04-00



1989

CYLINDER HEAD ASSY

15A-11110-04-00 (replaces 15A-11110-01-00)



That said, you can get a new head assembly at http://www.cyclepartswarehouse.com/fiche_section_detail.asp?section=13115&category=Motorcycles&make=YAMAHA&year=1989&fveh=320 for $314.28 plus shipping and gaskets, etc. That's only 249€. Worth a check anyway.

I assume you have broken exhaust studs that would hold the exhaust pipe flange



They are stuck but I am sure that they are NOT welded into the head and usually can be removed albeit difficultly



If you know someone clever let them do it but the cylinder head can be stripped



If you can file the end flat then using a center punch make a good dimple



Heating the head in an oven to like 200c and spraying with a penetrating oil will also help



Get LEFT HANDED drill bits that turn counter clockwise like unscrewing and starting with a size about 1/2 the stud size drill the stud out. do a 2nd a little bigger if you have to



Lastly even if you drill it all out then simply retap them the next size bigger and buy new studs

I am saved.

Yes, my new mechanic has finally succeed to get the screws as Stromper said.

A new problem, there is no ignition to the spark plug.

I suspect that the previous mechanic has pinched beam electric by replacing the chain kit ...

Thanks

JLUC, as has been suggested. Your English is fine, and few of us speak anything else. Good to hear you have fixed the exhaust problem. Not sure about (previous mechanic has pinched beam electric by replacing the chain kit ). If front sprocket has been replaced, maybe when engine case was put back on a wire was pinched (grounded/short circuit). That problem had recently happened to another member. I/we will search and see if we can give a connection to your problem. Take care. Gerry

You are right, my first mechanics has really pinched wires.

My new mechanics will weld again the wires this week.

Take care.
