Hi all,

I'm from Sri Lanka & just bought a 2006 Japanese TW200E.
I'm posting this thread to introduce myself ;)

As i've observed this Japanese model has few differences with the US model.
It has a Kick Starter & a Round Head Light Factory fitted.
The rear tyre is a Bridgestone 204 & Front is a Shinko SR428. Both are in very good shape.

It has done only 10,000 Km & is in pretty good shape. I just changed the oil which was used in Japan & it was very dark(burnt i must say). I checked the Oil & Air Filters, but no noticeable damage. So i filled it up with SAE 20W-40 Oil this time. Then checked the valve tappet clearances and adjusted it :)
Only has 200 Km with it myself & hope to move in to Mobil 1 4T if everything goes well.

Here are some pictures of my new ride.

Welcome, wise choice with the mobil 4t. Can you show close up pics of your factory round headlight?

welcome to the forum! That's a great looking bike.

A buddy of mine likes to chase his girlfriend around the globe. She works for the ICRC, and she was assigned to Sri Lanka a few years back.

The trailway is the perfect bike, in the boonies of Sri Lanka, or the boonies of California! Welcome to the addiction! m.

Yes round blinkers too..! Just noticed they r very different from the US version.
Seat also seems bit different..! It does not have those big black YAMAHA logos printed.
Has a dotted matte finish..!
