Would I have to remove any links from the stock chain If I were to install a 39T rear sprocket ? Would a larger front sprocket counter this ? Thanks !

I was told adding one tooth on the front was like taking three offa' the back.

I'm sure this has been mentioned ALOT on this thread, but with a 39T rear sprocket how suitable would this bike be for a long highway trip @ 60 mph or more if needed ? I'm sure it's not comfortable no, but how will the motor itself hold up ? at a constant 5500- 6k rpms.

Take a look at www.gearingcommander.com. Select the DR200SE from the list of models and then see the effect of varying the rear tire size, front sprocket size, and/or rear sprocket size on engine rpm. With a 15/39 sprocket combination at 60 mph the rpm would be about 6100. That's about a 13% reduction in rpm compared to the stock 15/45 sprockets. I suspect that with 15/39 even a moderate head wind or incline would require downshifting to 4th gear.

Based on discussion in this forum, it seems that the 16/45 or 15/42 combinations are the most popular alternatives to the stock gearing for more relaxed highway riding.

What's your definition of a long highway trip? The fellow that I bought mine from put over 30,000 miles on it commuting to/from work at 55+ about 60 miles each way to/from work, and it ran fine when I bought it.I put several thousand on it and it is still OK, AFIK.

Heyo Everybody- I just purchased a Suzuki Djebel 200 which is far as I understand is basically a DR 200. It is running pretty rough but the price was right and where I am living there are few options for motos--- It has a hard time starting. It feels like it wants to start, but then just doesn't get enough gas to fully fire up. I need to start cleaning it out, but there is a pretty huge problem. I am living in the People's Democratic Republic of Lao, a place where getting a quality cell phone battery literally requires a trip to Thailand. Proper parts for a bike this "big" are basically unheard of.

So I was thinking that the resourceful people on Adv might have some suggestions on how to do some work on this with very limited resources. I have a few problems:

First- Any suggestions on where I could download a service manual for this bike? I have a service manual for a gsx 250 which might be similar, but I would like to have something specific for this bike.

Second- the previous owner left the bike sitting for a few weeks and the carbs are gummed up- I am in the process of cleaning them out, but need suggestions on cleaners I could use other than the Chinese crap the local scooter shops are trying to sell me. I just don't trust what the locals are using on their 50 cc low quality Kolao bikes. I can't mess up any of the delicate parts and just order new ones, I either have to have everything shipped from Thailand, or I cross over and go to a city to buy stuff myself. Both options are expensive.

Third- There is an oil leak between the top an bottom of the engine (I don't know the proper terms for this- see the pic). Is there a way to make a gasket for this without going to the store and buying one? Can I use rubber cement or something?

Fourth - is likely the real problem. The bike has a pinging sound at low rpms. I don't know how to describe this other than it sounds exactly like a tuk-tuk. The quality of the gas here is an absolute joke, and the previous owner was using the bike for trips into the countryside, which means he was buying petrol sold out of beer bottles on the side of the road. The fuel filter has turned into a reddish color. Should I try to fix the other problems and hope that this fixes the pinging? Or should I do something while I have the engine apart?

Thanks for any suggestions -- I know that lots of these questions have probably been covered before, but with my crappy internet connection it would be pretty difficult to search all 400 pages on this thread. I know you guys like pics, so here you go.....

????Front Fender????

Can anyone tell me the part number for a 2006 Suzuki DR200SE front fender? I have been all over the web and, for the life of me, cannot find the OEM part number. Do they not make one?

Thanks much!

From an early search on my part, I found 'universal ' front fenders, but not a single reference to OEM front fenders.

Hope others fill us in on their finds.

Yep, stock 15/45. It is a bit buzzy at speed, but the DR200 does not mind revving.

Yes, I think I had to remove three in order to have enough chain adjustment. I do not think you have enough room to go big enough on the front to counter this, plus you would start to counter-act the reason for going smaller in the rear.

On a side note, I am not sure your reasoning for going to a 39T on the rear, but if you are doing it for fuel econ. I would NOT do it. I dropped from 70's MPG to 60's MPG as soon as I reduced the rear sprocket to a 39T from stock 45T. I am considering going back to stock. (I think the engine likes to run at 8k RPM)

Pics aren't showing here. What do they use for carb cleaner over there? Some people just soak the needles in Pine Sol.
