I had a blue 1990 DT and loved it. The only prob I had was when one of the crank bearing cages came apart and made its way up to the top of the piston and stopped the engine dead while it was idleing. I rebuilt it and ran it a few more years. Wish I still had it. I will have to look for some pictures.

I know there are better bikes out there but for the money I really enjoy riding mine. I bought a bone stock '96 DT200R with only 10K in '07. New Wiseco piston last summer due to high speed highway cruising riding home from a dualsport event. Suspension is lacking but makes a decent low buck dualsport and is a real hoot to ride. Lots of midrange torque with the power valve for a small engine. Watch out in hot weather for overheating when crawling through single track in first.

Just picked up my '89 DT200 for $500. Another $500 in parts (tires, tubes, fluids etc) and it's on the road. Great little bike for hitting the trails etc or zipping around town. Buddy had it stripped down for dirt, but after all the lights went back on...she good for the road. Parts are limited in the US as they weren't sold down your way, but look at ebay Canada, or ebay Australia and you can find all kinds of parts/info.

FYI The engine from an '89 (there may be other years) is the same as the Yamaha Blaster quad.
