Hey Guys, great post. I have a 1996 TW200 I picked up with 3700 miles. It seems to have a problem. It runs like a champ but it tends to break up around mid range. It will do it while running down the road or just in the driveway holding the throttle open. If I let off a little or crack it open no more cutting out or breaking up.

The carb was off and cleaned and cleaned right. I even had a Mikuni makeshifted on it for a little ride and it still did it.

Could this be the coil, CDI, stator? I am baffled. I ran it up to 60MPH once i got past the dead spot. It won't do it in the high rpm range. All I hear is good about these but I am havign some issues with mine. I hate to drop 160 bucks on a cdi if it's nto needed.

Help if you have ideas...great site and great post...Johnny Whaler

Does that model have a CV carb or a direct slide carb? If it's CV, perhaps you have a vacuum leak that is not allowing the slide to raise completely?

You might want to check out http://tw200forum.com, there's a bunch of guys there that might be able to help.

Charles.

My TW all set-up

here's what I use to explore the trails and logging roads in Northern Calif. Great bike when you want to go slow in the real rough stuff.

Tw 125

Hi everybody, as my first post on ADVRiders, I would like to show you my TW125. Excelent little bike. A bit underpowered, but with strong personality, joy to ride. I think TW200 was not available in EU.

Greetings from Croatia

Hello there in Croatia, good to hear from you! Nice looking bike. What tyres are those? I am selling my wifes Honda 230F, my Yamaha TTR250, and my Montesa 247T, and buying two TW200's! To me the TW200 is basically a trials bike with a little higher gearing, the tyre combination make it a go anywhere bike. I read an article were a Japanese guy did round the world on a Honda step through, so this is a Cadillac compared to that!

Tyres are stock, Bridgestone trail wing, 130/80-18 front, and 180/80-14 rear. I think 200 cc is better, 125 is a bit weak. But good enough for city run or some back roads. For longer tours I prefer one of my airheads :)

125..

That engine in the TW125 looks identical to the TW200... I wonder if you can just bolt the TW200's cylinder, piston, and connecting rod right on...

Might be worth looking into.

Charles.

Probably possible, but I don't mind, bike is still new, with only 2000 km. I don't ride her a lot.

My TW



That was after my first dirt test ride. Goes through deep soft ploughed sand that quads can, but on my DR650 it's a real struggle.

My first real ride:
