    Some nice PUB in the article as well. Way to go guys!!!!!!







    To read the comments on TW200forum.com, a website of hard-core TW devotees,

    Yamaha needn’t have bothered, as there was nothing

    wrong with the front drum in the first place. True to the original

    TW, the rear brake is still a 110mm drum.
    Founders for militia definition: ..[T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.” The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788. No founder is on record arguing with this definition - many support it. Then there's Patrick Henry: "I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.

    I had to chuckle at the comment on the clutch action, which of course is one of the first questions every new TW owner asks, me included.

    One feature of the TW, and the main reason I have one, wasn't really mentioned that much if at all. And that is it's stability or rootedness. Regular dirt bikes are designed to be able to react quickly at speed, and the result is something like a flighty half broken horse. Fine if that's what you're gonna do, but if you just want to go relax and take a dang ride without giving the bike ALL of your attention, the TW is where it's at. I don't know what the feature should be called, maybe "Relaxed handling?"

    TW Brian came up with this one a while back.

    Seems to be one of the first articles about the bike when it first came out.

    Thanks, Tommy!

    I'd forgotten about that one (almost a year ago).

    So many newer members lately. I remembered these two articles from when I was a newer owner and had really enjoyed them, they will too.


    Yamaha couldn't have dreamed back then what these TWs would turn into over the years.

    Odd fuel economy. I've got as high as 96.6 mpg on the weekends. Never lower than 70 mpg during the week. It would require some heavy braking and WOT to get it down to 60 mpg.

    It was through seeing an article about the TW200 in Grey Bike magazine that I first got to know about TW's
    There was a pic of the tester pulling a wheelie on it
    We worked out, judging by the size of the wheels, that I should be able to reach the floor ok, as they didn't say the seat height
    I bought my TW brand new from a Company that imported them to the UK, never having seen one in the flesh, as there were no 2nd hand ones around to try at the time
    It was love at first sight & as soon as I took it for a test run, felt right at home on it

    So you got a 200 and not one of the 125s?

    Yes, I don't think the 125 had come out in '97 when I got mine ?
    The 200 was only available as a grey import then anyway for me in the UK so I went to a specialist importer
    Some years later just the 125 was available in the UK from normal Yamaha dealers

    It sounds like everyone would want a 200 over there if they could get them now. They must be rare.
