Page 15 (Chapter 1 - 8) of the Suzuki DR200SE manual:
http://www.scribd.com/doc/40540261/DR-200-Owners-Manual

950ml with filter change
850ml with no filter change

When I bought my bike, I changed the filter with the first oil change because I didn't know if the previous owner did or not. I was just trying to be safe. You should only have to change the filter after every other oil change though.

Is it an easy swap or would I need to modify?

I look and look but I don't see any issues with the tires. Any ideas?

So I took the bike back to the shop where I had the tires put on. They balanced them for me but it didn't help. They seem to think that the belt inside the front tire may have warped or something. They said to ride it for a while and see if it flattens out. I hope it does. I don't really feel like spending any more money on tires right now! But the guys at the shop were great. When I asked what I owed, they said nothing! Even though I called on a Saturday and they took me in at the last minute. Couldn't be happier and I'm gonna miss them!

It's an easy swap if you use the petcock listed on page 1 of this thread.

"tony the tiger" did report fitment problems with it, but he has never reposted to verify that the petcock he received was actually the right part number. I have that petcock on mine and it was a plug-n-play swap, just had to get a cap for where the vacuum line that went to the original petcock attaches to the carb. You can search this thread for more information. The outlet on the Raptor petcock is larger than the inlet on our carbs requiring jerry rigging to connect them.

The guys at the shop were great???? To each their own but I think this is appalling. Tires don't fix themselves, you have a defect!

If anything happens to you as a result of this tire, I hope you or the loved ones you leave behind sue them out of business.

SHO_GuN screwed with this post 07-04-2012 at 01:40 PM Reason: correct typo

That's a bit of a stunning thing for them to say.

This one sits a little closer to the tank (it's smaller than the stocker) so I took a Dremel tool w/cutoff wheel to the inside edge so it'd clear the lip of the gas tank - otherwise you wouldn't be able to rotate it to reserve. 'bout $10 though.
Such a fun word...

Do you still have the package your's arrived in? If so does the part # match?


EDIT:

I just did some research - This part number is still valid, however the number in the parenthesis are an old part number: Yamaha 23F-24500-11-00 - FUEL COCK ASSY 1 (4X8-24500-02-00). So the new number should actually be: Yamaha 23F-24500-11-00 - FUEL COCK ASSY 1

- wonder why I never answered that... I remember having the part box handy, right there by the 'puter once upon a time. wonder if it's still down there or off in the recycle.

Sorry 'bout that!

Anyways - sounds like the Raptor petcock outlet is similar to the one I got, whichever model it was. I put a brass fitting between the two different sized fuel lines to connect them. Wurx gud bye me

Although this one is $30, it fits perfectly, no modification required, and is 'fully rebuildable', whatever that means...

Plenty of info on the raptor petcock - think I specified it was a 2004 when I ordered mine. Drain the tank into a portable can, unbolt the old, bolt in the new, reconnect the tubes, cap off the vacuum line. Easy.

Thanks everybody for the info on the petcock and oil change.

Does anybody ever use the prime setting?

As I said above, you might use it to prime an empty float bowl, after jetting or removing and cleaning the carb. Where I live (Thailand), the gas evaporates very quickly, and if I don't ride for a few days, I need to prime the bowl.

Another use would be to drain the tank prior to replacing the petcock.

In any case, I can't stress strongly enough: if you found gas/oil on the floor overnight, you need to replace the needle seat o-ring. Or not. As the girls at Nana say, "up to you."

They've still got plenty of life in the tires and we've been very happy with them.

I've been riding offroad for 23 years, road bikes for 17 years. The stock tires that came on the DR easily had the worst grip I've ever encountered for either terrain. A full set of offroad knobbies feels more solid around a tarmac corner than I felt with the Trailwings. Offroad, the only time I've felt that unstable was when I rode an old silverwing running touring tires down a gravel road. That's why they get a bad rep.
