DR200 1st mod

The best thing I've done to my 2003 DR200 that I got last year ($1500, 728 miles, but scratched & dented tank) is a 16T countershaft sprocket. It's so much more versatile on pavement, so unless...

Is the DR cold blooded or what!

Another question oh wise ones on the forum: does removing the plug from that screw under the carb (not sure what that screw is called or what it does) and adjusting that screw have any effect on...

Clutch cable adjustment

Thanks for the heads up on the 2nd cable adjuster. I thought there might be one but did not see it the other end of the cable, and it didn't hit me that it might be in the middle. At the moment I'd...

Changing the clutch engagement?

This may not be possible, or it may be an indication of some other problem, but on my new-to-me 2003 DR200, with less than 2000 miles, the clutch does not engage until the lever is at least 90% out....

DG slip on muffler

My questions are for those who have a DG muffler on their DR200s: Do you have the O-series or the R-series? Is there any difference btw the two besides the end cap? I have already emailed DG and have...

Loose ignition key

Got sometime new for you all. I've never had a cycle do this before. The key is so loose in the ignition while riding my 2003 DR200 (bought it the end of Feb. w/ 728 miles on it), that I can hear...

Turn signal connectors

Just a thought, if you don't have a wiring diagram, the connector with the green wire is the connector for the right turn signal-with the black/white stripe wire being the ground. The other...

Tire Pressures

I would go with what the bike says to start with-22/25 solo or 22/29 two-up or heavily loaded. Setting the tires at 32/32 just sounds too high for that weight bike. I'd bet you would have a very...

Rear shock question

I saw a reference somewhere that someone might have installed a DRZ400 rear shock on a DR200. Can anyone confirm a successful installation? If so, what was involved? I've done the ZZR1200 shock on...

AKohler,
The Avon street tires that caught my eye are the RoadRider AM26. Available in 90/90-21 and five different rear sizes from 4.00 to 120/80-18 that look like possibilities. The price is...

Off the wall tire question

This may be off the wall, but has anyone put street bike tires on his/her DR200? The reason I ask is my riding will be 90-95% pavement, and at times aggressive cornering. I was looking thru the...

Anyone change the front t/s to running lights?

Just got a complete set of shorter t/s for my DR and noticed the front ones have three wires-dual element bulbs. This got me to thinking-admittedly not always a good thing for me-how hard would it...

Torque specs

Very good timing. I have a service manual but no owner's manual. I don't see where it says the torque spec for either the oil drain bolt or the spark plug in the maintenance section of the s/m. ...

petcock failure

The saga continues on my new to me 2003 728 mi Owensboro, KY, DR200. I'm even more convinced the seller was less than completely honest. After my first ride when it wouldn't idle I was prepared to do...

The bike will not idle

Just picked up a 2003 with 728 miles on it. Drove to Owensboro, KY, 400 miles. 6.5 hours of driving time each way. I've since found out the seller had less than fully disclosed some details about the...

Replacement tires?

That's a very open-ended question. The answer depends on what kind of riding you'll be doing primarily: purely street, mostly street with the occassional gravel road-such as myself, more aggressive...

Big Gun exhausts anyone?

I'm still looking for a DR200, but can't seem to find one in my price range that's within a reasonable driving distance from me. I'm considering one with a Big Gun Evo R exhaust on it and wonder if...

Street oriented tires

Thanks lobsta and Andyinhilo. The GP-110's look like exactly what I wanted-90/10. Since I don't plan on doing any track days or touring coast to coast on my DR200 I don't need anything more...
