PostSubject: New TW rider in Florida   Sat Jul 09, 2011 4:44 am

Just picked up a 96 TW200 that has sat in a carport for many years.
Carb looked like a quart of paint was poured in it and let dry.

With knowledge learned here as a lurker I got it running. Awaiting some new carb parts to smooth it up.

I rode a DT-1 many years ago (as in 40+) and looking forward to riding again.

I know the old days of riding just about anywhere you wanted to go are gone forever but it is those memories that have drawn me back.

Use to be able to ride on the beach at any speed you wanted. I think the only beach you can ride on today is Daytona and then you will be riding next to a Mom driving a mini-van.

Welcome, you are now a "Mule" owner. Sounds the the TW sat around not being used much. Hope you have some good fun and enjoy riding it.

The TW seems to pique the interest of many of us 'older' riders. Indeed things have changed since my Dad and I looked at that used Yamaha 80 GYT kit on it back in the 60's. Enjoy your bike and the new adventures that it will surely provide. Gerry

Sounds like you need some of the legendary Yamaha carb dip :)

Welcome, ezman. The TW is just like a DT1, but better in every way. Just ride down the road and look off to the side for trails. If you see one, go and ride it. You never know where you might end up.
