valve adjustment on TW 200

Can anyone point me to a website that has instructions for adjusting the valves on a Yamaha Tw200?

try here
www.tw200forum.com

better yet buy the manual, my tw is getting its first oil change (60 miles) tommorrow and when I buy the filter, I am going to order the manual as well. I hear that it is very easy to adjust the valves but I don't have any first hand experience yet.

good luck

This is for an XT225 but they are almost identical.

I think its wise to change your oil and filter at about 50-60 miles. I have a 2007 XT225 and the forum for that bike mentioned from many owners about how much "swarf" the oil filter had on it. When I changed mine at 60 miles I did find a lot of metallic crap on the filter.Yamaha has you going to 600 miles before doing the first service. I feel better having got that oil out early.
