Hello all! I joined yesterday and bought my first TW200 today. It's a 2009 all stock and with only 88 miles on it - looks brand new. I found it shortly after it was posted on Ebay classified ad. Paid only $2500. The bike has sat for some time so it runs but when choke is pushed in it dies even after it is warmed-up nicely. Probably have to clean the carbs and put fresh gas in it. I will probably add some hand guards. I look forward to browsing the site. Thanks for all the helpful posts that I will be reading.

Great find! I would have snatched that up in a heartbeat. Looks like you've had plenty of time in the fast lane. Now its time to slow down and take in the scenery! Enjoy your new bike

Thanks. I do like the scenic rides. I also like the off road ability. Gonna be a pleasure.

Replace those crappy float bowl screws with some sturdy allen head screws while you're in there. Something tells me you'll be back in there a few times once you run across the carb tuning thread on here.
You stole that '09 for that kinda coin by the way. Enjoy.

I had a 02 gixxer, too... the blue and yellow Telefonica edition. Sometimes I miss that bike, but then I remember how my wrists and lower back felt after 90 minutes of riding.
Welcome!
