I found a 2002 TW that has 140 miles on it and has been garage stored. Are there know problems that will cause me problems prematurely. First thing would be changing the tires. It just had its 100 mile service and suppose to run great. Thanks for your help.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
Just keep an eye on anything to do with rubber. Fork seals, countershaft/gearlever/kickstart seals, engine might smoke due to valve guide seals, check the wheel bearing seals, engine o-rings etc. None of this would deter me if the rest of the bike is in good condition.
are you in the sacramento area?
if so, i'd say $3000 is on the steep side for a totally stock 2002, regardless of the low miles.

3K would be about it... I paid 2,000 for my 2003 Dub about 2 years ago.... It had unknown miles on it because the speedo was hacked to get it into calif. The tires looked new. The bike was used to run MJ out of the mountains up around George Town, CA so it was DIRTY. I cleaned the carb, adjusted the valves, changed the oil, serviced the chain and replaced the tires. That is about it....
Read about doing your own service... Know about the wrong oil filter problem...if you decide to get it.
Welcome to the forum!
I edited this because I checked what I paid for it... Thought it was 2.5K.... Paid 2K for it...

Be careful this might be an out of state bike! If it is the Speedo has to have over 8,000 miles on it... If not Calif DMV will not let it in... Check the registration and make sure it is a CAL bike!
The tires should have the little "new knobs" on it with only 140 miles on it....
There will be some extra $ for not NO OP if it is a Cal bike... and registration not paid.
It is a Ca bike and registered in CA Just a hole in the speedo lense. Speedo works. Owner is to check back reg fees Monday . Had it non op but don't know if current.
