Just picked up a 1995 tw200 with 2200 miles. Seems to run great, but the back blinkers don't work...looks like someone taped them up, possibley layed it down at some point??

Anyways, love the bike so far but wondering where the best place to order parts from? Wanting to change the filter/oil and also replace a few things.

Not in love with the paint scheme, might do something about that later, but for now I can live with it


Any help or advice with these machines would be greatly apreciated.

Thanks,

Rob

Each shop online has best prices on certain parts so you need to shop around. There is also a pretty good chance you have a local dealer, which sometimes are cheaper depending on the part since you wont have to pay the shipping (for example, I bought my air filter from the local shop.)



I have seen Stadium Yamaha mentioned a few times on the site, also an extra discount code for it at the moment.

Many members also swear by Rocky Mountain ATV, though personally I have had issues with them.

Bike Bandit has been pretty good to me recently.

Hope this helps.



Oh, and grats on the TW, welcome to the club.

Thanks for the info and welcoming me.

I'll try some that were mentioned.

I'm in olympia Washington and do have a local yamaha shop I'll try also.

Haha...yes, the fruitloop bike fits it well....though I don't like it..haha. Still a great bike so far.

A little dusty from siting in my buddies shop for a long time but other than that it seems amazingly clean for a 95.

manuals downloaded, will change oil, clean airfilter and clean it up a bit tommorrow.

Also,

I'm in Olympia wa., my buddy said he'd sell me the bike for $850. I offered him $500, a 10oz bar of silver and a few fresh salmon steaks and he accepted. Seems like a good deal for this bike to me but not really sure. What do you guys think?

Wow twRob! I'd have paid $850 for that bike!! I'm just south of you in Oregon, I had to pay $1400 for a 1994 that was not as nice as yours!! I'd say you got a steal!



Check out www.ProCycle.us for parts link here I'm partial, I work there...



Welcome to the forum, these are truly great little bikes

Congrats on the bike! Yes, that sounds like a very good deal. That, sir, is a classic paint scheme -- altering it in anyway would be an affront to all things, uh... classic, er... Japanese, um... wait ... never mind.

I was trying to figure out why the blinkers didn't work. I downloaded the owners manuaul, found where they said the fuse block would be...I only seem to have one inline style fuse, not a small fuse block like the owners manual says.

Anyone have any ideas?

Congratulations! That’s a great price for that bike. I would have snapped it up in a second.



Oh, and you have to keep the color scheme - it is perfect camo for when you are driving around inside the ball pit at your local entertainment-themed pizza parlor.





(Notice how you can’t even see the ’95 T-dub in this pic.)

Had a nice ride over to my buddies house.

I do have a question though.



At low throttle (even throttle, keeping speed) going down the road, I seem to have a miss or surge. Also at low throttle around the property (first/second gear) it seems to have a random stumble...almost cuts out for just a second.



Also at idle in neutral if I ease into the throttle it revs fine, but if I do it too quickly it just does nothing...almost "bogs" out and if I don't let off the throttle it'll actualy just die. Starts right back up like nothing happened.



I checked the plug and it didn't look lean or rich....golden brown



Any suggestions?

Your carb probably needs to be cleaned and/or re-jetted. I assume that the fuel is fresh? There is lots of info here on carb servicing and re-building. It's really simple.
