    The music on that vid is called sitar madness. That video was shot with an iphone but all the rest are shot with a gopro. Glad you like them. Its alot easier to shoot video from a fatcat than a tw because the cat has an automatic clutch which leaves you with a free hand.

    I use a photobucket account. It is free. There are others out there beside photobucket, I just can't think of any of them at this moment. Download your pics to photobucket, and is will give you a url address which you can paste within the thread.

    The world is ready to see your TW/BW.

    You can use a variety of on line photo places{Photo Bucket is one}...I use Picasa Web Album....but you can also just post photos to your personal computer, and copy and paste to this site...see mine from earlier this week...I took the shots with my digital camera, loaded them to the computer, hit copy, and paste on the thread post....:deal

    Ok, put the carb back together and bike idled sweet as can be but when you give it throttle it is dead...does not die but there is nothing there and takes forever to rev up esp on the road and in third gear.
    It actually ran better except for the long warm up when there was no small spring and Pilot jet clogged.
    There is no difference in 1/2 throttle and full unless you want to wait then you can fell it surging and gaining rpm.
    Will Sea-Foam/colonic it and ride again and still no worky

    New Carb:dunno

    I'm good on the TW, already got one and it's enough for me lol. I just like the blue fender and headlight mask. Even though I don't have a stock headlight anymore lol

    I'm kicking around the idea of financing something inexpensive, to try and give my non-existent credit a boost. The TW200 has caught my eye for some time, and it appears Yamaha still makes them, and they are really pretty cheap.

    So my questions are these -

    How does this bike do on the road? The fat tires might make it handle funny - "1960's Ford truck with posi and no power steering" funny. What kind of top speed can I expect out of it?

    I have a DR650 that flatly refuses to overheat. Can I expect the same thing with the TW200?

    Every motorcycle seems to have it's issues - the KLR and the doohickey, the first gen EX500 and the flywheel, the DR650 and the neutral switch... What goofy little issues does the TW have?

    Last, and this is a weird one - I have a Yamaha raptor 350 with an awesome engine and a chassis that has seen better days. Has anyone swapped the 350cc six speed engine into a TW?:lol3
