So, has anyone plated the 350? Mine has a full Washington title, and when I do the switch I just have to ask for plates correct?

I have a Wa, state title and license plate for a 85 -200 and it has been plated for 27 years , when i bought it the gal at licensing just transferred it because it was plated before..dont think you can get one plated that had not been in the past...i am going to add turn signal's with L.E.D. flush mounts and a horn to be more compliant. I just know some patrolman is going to have a fit that the tires are not rated though...just a matter of time before that confrontation with the man..i figure its grandfathered in at this point as im not using it on highways ......

Washington is a PAIN to deal with plates... If your title or the bike says on it anywhere "off road use only", your toast. If you have a current plate, run it until they tell you you cant! Getting a plate- good luck. Idaho, on the other hand, lets you plate just about anything depending on intended use. You can get plates for straight up dirtbikes- but you can't take them on all of the highways.

New guy here - just bought a 1986 BW200 with about 40 hours on it. Need to redo the primary chain, then it'll be ready to go. Great thread with lots of good info!

PS - also have a Rokon Trailbreaker. I'll compare the 2 bikes once the 200 is going.

Welcome aboard Duster11. We await the results of your showdown. Of course, we are all rooting for the BW over the Rokon.

And thanks to yokoboko for the link to the owners manuals.

I recently returned from a three week trip to find out that some jerk had left the BigWheel filthy and covered in mud. So, to make reparations to her, I decided to make a minor upgrade.

Presenting: My Latest Hack Job (literally)

The problem:



As discussed previously, mud builds up under the left side engine case cover. It is hard to see and impossible to remove without removing the cover.



On your average dirt bike the countershaft sprocket is left largely exposed and is easy to get to with a pressure washer.



Since the BW is anything other than "average", the countershaft sprocket is almost completely enclosed and impervious to the ravages of a pressure washer.

The Solution:



Three jigsaw blades, two band-aids, a new gasket, 12 hand-rubbed coats of lacquer and new hardware (to replace those wonderful phillips-head fasteners made by the Tokyo Margarine Factory in the 80's) and the project is complete.

The New Problem:

Now the rest of the bike looks like hell.

It's been below zero fahrenheit for several weeks. Now it has warmed up and dropped a foot of snow on us. How am I going to find some mud so I can get that part to blend in with the rest of the bike?

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel

Anybody happen to have a bw200 parts bike? I could use a few things, mainly an airbox for an electric start model (with battery holder). The previous owner of mine ripped it out and installed a cone filter directly onto the carb... Not going to work for a dirtbike!!

Ah the joys of resurrecting 25 year old dirtbikes...

Perhaps this gentleman would have the parts you require:

http://hickory.craigslist.org/mcy/3474837201.html

It is a sign of a certain sickness that I know that someone is selling a BW in Hickory.

Someone help me!

Reagards,

Mr. BigWheel

You ride with shoestrings?

I usually just ride with losers and miscreants.

On that note: Hey Cliff, are we still on for tomorrow?
