iv got a 07 dr with 3000 miles today when the bike drops to an idol for anything over 10-20 sec after running and i go to take off the engine cuts out. other than this it runs fine, i find myself starting it at every other light. even if i roll the throttle as light as possible it does this. i have the valves between .08 and .10 leaning more to the .08 any ideas about this? thanks and happy riding.

I would suspect a plugged up pilot (low speed) jet. With only 3000 miles in three years that scooter has been sitting idle quite a bit, and that is when the fuel problems hit. Take the carb apart and give it a good cleaning, and check the air filter, too. They tend to rot away if not serviced regularly.

I'm headed for Hells Canyon this week for a gathering of ADVriders to do some riding and socialize. By the time I get home about 1000 miles will be added to my bike.



For this ride I'm trying something different using trials tires.





This will be interesting. Wahhhhhoooooooo for the Superbug we're going riding.

I broke a rear turn signal(stupid tree jumped out from nowhere), from what i'm finding I can get two after market ones cheaper then one OEM. I thought I read something about LED's not working but is there any other issues I might have if I get a pair of after market ones? any ideas for some?.

Thanks
Mike

I went through about 4-5 pages after this question was asked, but found no answer. Anyone know where to get a new throttle tube? I'm trying to replace the grips on my wife's 200, but that stock tube/grip are one in mind, body and spirit!

If you google the o/e DR200 grip/throttle tube part# 57110-14D00 some sites list it as the same set up used on DR350's

Try Motion Pro as they do a plastic throttle tube for the DR350 Part# 01-0093 ....

I am trying to decide which exhaust header to use with the Big Gun muffler. Does anyone know the size of the exhaust port? The stock has a fraction wider ID than the the Big Gun header.

Cheers.

Nice idea on the tires. Trials tires are actually really nice all around tires. I have IRC GP1's on mine and they work great.

1000 miles on a DR200! Your butt won't stop vibrating till August.

How many miles do you get out oft the IRCs? The ones on my bike are Dunlop and more expensive than the others. Next time I want to try something less expensive.

1000 miles on that bike is a piece of cake. My first ride on it was in three days riding from East TX to Yuma, AR then headed south into Baja and back until I hit snow in near the CA/OR border totalling about 3500 miles. The ride report has everyone's ride in it and mine starts here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...321329&page=10 but that was a short bit of it and I finished up here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...321329&page=20


My second long ride was this one: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=391912

OK there have been a few upgrades to help with vibration. Aluminum bars, gel grips, the foam has been removed from the seat and replaced with a gel pad, and I use gel insoles in my boots. The foam coming out of the seat was so I could touch ground. I'm a tad short.

The bike is tons of fun - I own two BMW F650s and end up riding my 200 more than I ride the 650s.

Hi there. Just in the process of installing heated grips for the colder days and also found that the grip is well glued to the tube. I scraped most of the grip off with a sharp blade and the inside edge on scissors. I then used the wire wheel on my bench mounted grinder to carefully remove the rubber that was left. It did quite a good job as I was gentle and it left all the ridges in place on the tube. From experience any single cable 7/8ths 22mm throttle tube will fit if you have one.

Cheers from NZ

You need to take the carb off and clean it...... Most likely the Pilot Jet is clogged. The orifice is so small that it nearly impossible to clean. Get a kit from kientech.......it is well worth it......

And another new participant in this thread ... yesterday we picked up a 2001 DR200SE with 529 miles, some scratches, carburetor reworked, fresh oil, fresh gas. Hope it was a good pick:

Looks good. Get a new air filter, oil it and you're good to go. Ditch the tires for something a little more dirt worthy if desired. There have been some reports about the stock TrailWings cracking, especially if they are a decade old.

DR200's are completely bulletproof.
