    Does these Twisters cut out after highway driving when they get hot?

    Nope they don't. I drove mine to Pietermaritzburg without it cutting out. Fuel blockage, dirty/old fuel, dirty air cleaner or spark plug might all be a possible cause

    Had a similar issue with mine a while back - air filter to blame in my case.

    Big shoutout to Hobbes for assisting me with help , he took the time to guide me nicely , I got a decent ride this morning , and she didn't cut out once when I came off the highway , the rpm just slightly dipped to around 900 but then came right back up again , suppose that is normal , other than that , I am super happy with the bike , she drives extremely lekke , very nippy and stable

    @Neltfyou did a really good job and needed very little help, just ran through the basics and you figured it out, small stuff like this is really simple and easy if you do it slow, ask all the questions and do as much research as possible, well done bud, i would like to meet your lady some time
    Lifes like riding the open road. its got its up hills, down hills, its thunderstorms and sunshine, doesnt matter where your going as long as you enjoy the ride

    Hi All, this is my first post on the forum, I thought I would start here as I am looking to get a Twister! I will post in the welcome forum soon. I'm new to biking and doing a course with Biker Safe soon. I'm based In the Western Cape. I would like to know if I am on the right track.
    After the course I will be looking to get a Twister, I have been looking already, there are two options currently. 2006 - 39000km -R15500 - Private or 2005 - 19000km - R22000 Dealer. I wouldn't know the first thing to look for on these bikes as I am a complete noob. Is there anyone here in the WC that can possibly help me out who knows these things and what to look for or when to walk away. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks. Jay

    Hi , and welcome to the Twister owners , I always like to choose the bike with lowest km on , provided the exterior is still good...
    Advice from me us , go test drive the bikes , see that it starts first time around , it must not sukkel , choke on probably will start first time round and choke off goes back to normal rpm after a minute or so , check oil level and look at it on the dipstick , look for oily residue on exhaust tailend , feel how they pull , feel for any jerking or slacking , notice for any smoke on startup also. Bike must ride smooth , smooth gear shifts , look at handles , look on forks & spot any leaks , you might find some sweat on motor perhaps yes , but other than that check for chain for slack & wear and tear , look at the sprockets , see that they still got some "meat" left...
    check rubbers & check for cracks in the tyres , This is what I would check for , test all buttons & knobs and see that all switches work.

    Thanks Neltf, much appreciated. Looks like the private seller has sold the Twister, Dealer said he can come down to R20k, also he said no road worthy certificate, he is like a dealer on Gumtree selling cars, bikes etc from what I can gather. Would it be best for him to take care of the Road Worthy?, I think so as I have seen on the forum some discussions regarding this. I will go have a look at this Twister next week. Also,I have been browsing the net and ive seen 2005 - 2006 models for R15k with higher mileage, is R20k a good price assuming bike is in pretty good nic?

    Ja rather try get him to sort the road worthy out, as you may run into problems... 20k seems reasonable for a clean Twister under 20 000 km, and match the number on the frame just below handle bar with the papers. The above advice seems good, check for accident damage, scrapes on indicators, bar ends. I'd also continue looking around perhaps? possibly test ride other Twisters to compare the rides...

    yes it is , however this one is really really loud , sadly I took it off because it started to hurt my ears , also she spits at 8000-9000rpm so I need to up the fuel jet at a later stage

    Ok, ja there's no muffler on that setup,plus the free flow, so it will be, but it helps with saftey in traffic as people can hear you... A bike shop, a skilled welder could help you dampen the noise somewhat, they weld some type of ring on the inside at the end of the cowley, don't know what its called. It narrows the exhaust exit at the end of the Cowley, ultimately helping with noise reduction and back pressure. Seen a few guys do it
