i have an alaska leather seat cover that helps quite a bit.

it's still a dual sport seat, but it's an improvement.

Well someone has to.
It's got a 6 speed box, 2 spark plugs and is a little quicker than a DR.

Torque and Timing Specs

Hello Everyone, It's been a while, but i'm still lurking.

I've been searching the thread for an answer and haven't had any luck finding it-

Could someone please help me with the Timing and Torque specs on the bike (mainly top end).

I've managed to blow up my DR at about 30k- so new piston, rings, timing chain, guards, rocker arms, gaskets... while im at it: jet kit, air filter, breaks... She should be road worthy in a week, give or take the number of beers consumed each night

Please donate your knowledge; I've spent all my pocket change on parts and have nothing left over for the manual $$

Thanks in advance.

i believe the code for a discount is "deadsheep" but they might have changed it by now.

i bought that cover for my f650, but it works better on the 200.

north central michigan, probably in some state land in the atlanta-lewiston area.

1996 dr200 advice

Hello all. Im the proud new owner of a dr200 that cost me a whole tank of gas to take it off someones hands. Cleaned the carb and it fired right up. It does need a new sprocket and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to what size front and rear I needed for 50/50 on/off road riding. Was also wondering if anyone is running one of these air filters or know any pros or cons with them. thanks

My butt

Good grief. I logged about 110 miles yesterday on the stock seat and man, did my rear end ever hurt till the end. I don't have much padding on my butt, and as we all know, the stock seat doesn't provide much cushioning!

I guess it's time to start looking into seat covers...

Front Fender

Does anyone remember where to get that modified front fender? The shorter, more streamlined one? I get an awful lot of vibration and shaking from mine while riding at higher speeds and since I do mostly street riding, I'd like to get rid of the front fender I have now and get that sleeker looking one I know that I saw in this forum...

EDIT***

Nevermind! Just ordered the front fender I was looking for!

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000MQ8CJI/..._JrdbD.1PSDS1Y

Not a bad price at all and free shipping!

Cool2 Nice weekend for riding

Took two day-trips this weekend; Saturday ~100 miles and Sunday ~150. Still lovin' the little bike - but I can see the need for a rack & bags in the near future... ala the Superbug (TM)

- someday, when mine grows up.

it says thats for yamaha?

are you sure it fits?

Also, let me know what you decide about your seat cover, and I will do the same, Im going for something very budget minded

Does anyone have any links to a good tank bag? Id like something to stick my cell phone in so I can listen to Pandora on a longer ride, last thing I need (or I THINK I need) is a sprocket for better road speed. I can comfortably go about 55-60mph, Id like to hike that up to about 65 without vibrating myself to bits, any suggestions?

Yeah - it fits - someone else in this forum put one on their bike. Check it out:

Oh and a tank bag:
That's discussed here:

Or you can just look here for some good deals:
