I used to have to continuously lay over the tank on mine or that front wheel would come right up!So I ran it around the neighborhood. Ran pretty good. Forgot how much this little bike likes to pull the front wheel off the ground. Even with my fat ass on the seat.
But I parked her in the driveway for about 40 minutes and when I came back out there was a small puddle of gas under her. So I went ahead and ordered a carb kit. Should be here in a few days. With 30+ years on her I guess I can't complain about spending $20 on the carb.
On my 1993 wheelies can be done but you have to compress the front forks, hit the throttle and come up on the fork rebound while working the clutch and throttle.You guys must have versions of the TW I’ve never seen. We recently acquired an ‘07 with only 582 miles on it and, I’d have to yank pretty darn hard on the bars if I wanted the front wheel to come up. I mean, the bike runs great, like a top but, it’s no wheelie machine for sure. At least mine ain’t.
