Check post #2 of this thread for more tire options.

Morning all,

Still having fun with my 200 and it's high RPM surging. It's a 2000 DR125se but fitted with a 1994 DR200se Djebel (japanese market) motor.

It was running fine until I hit some deep water. Swapped for a fresh plug and it went fine again for about 5 minutes then started this surging.

Originally it wouldn't rev above half throttle but over time it's got a bit better and will ride all day at about 3/4 throttle.

It didn't look to hve ingested any water, more sprayed up at the electrics under the tank. I'm dubious that it might have damaged the CDI as tht was still clean/dry and there was no sign of water in the oil to have got to the stator.

I'm 99% certain the carb is clean (have done it three times since), I've checked and cleaned every connection and earth, disconnected/bypassed every safety switch at some stage and even just fitted a brand new coil and it's no better.

It seems to be RPM related rather than throttle position related too.

Pulls fine from the bottom and most of the mid but once it gets quite high it's surging. I can hold the throttle wide open and it just surges and bounces, it won't rev through it at all.

I'm a bit baffled now.

Fender: Cinderella's Shoe

So the first fender for the DR250/350 was believed to be a bit too big. So, I bought a fender for a RM80. As soon as the box came out of the mailbox, I knew it would not be the one. Now, I feel like I am buying Cinderella shoes and that one's too big...this one's too small. It's wicked short and much narrower than the frame.

But in the meantime, I think I am over another hurdle with mounting the tail light on the DR250/350. So, more pics and hopefully more progress this weekend.

And in the meantime, time to go look for more fender options

I can't think of anything beyond what you've covered. I suppose you've inspected the diaphragm.

If the main jet is good then maybe you clogged the fuel screen inside the tank? Sounds like its running lean on top.

What about the vacuum operated petcock? These things always give me trouble so I replaced mine with a Pingle gravity feed type.

That's a very good point - I think we had it out when we first stripped the carb but didn't really have a good look over it and haven't looked since. The bike the engine (and carb) came out of had been in storage for several years so there's a good chance it might have perished some.

I'll have a look at that, but the tank itself is gleaming inside. Spark plug doesn't look too bad though.

Thankfully over here we don't have to suffer the vacuum petcocks - just a standard tap with on/off/res.

I feel you on this issue. Maybe we should start documenting, taking photos & brand/type of fender we bought. Maybe someone else like it. So far I have gotten two of them, and I dont like them. One Small, One Big.
I might cut this last one and make it shorter.

This is an 'Acerbis' front Fender Black for a Yamaha YZ250F/450F
Length wise is perfect, but it's too danm wide on the front.

So, I've started a spreadsheet.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...Xc&usp=sharing

Here's my pics:
Details of the DR250/DR350 fender thus far is post 7647 and post 7649.

I've decided to run that one til I break it off. Then maybe look for another one. However, will take pics of the RM80 when I get back to the garage.

Have any of you put a super moto fender on the DR200 yet? I put one of those on a XR80/100 and it looked pretty good. They are of similar size, so it might work on the DR too.

Yes I have.
The first fender I got was 'Acerbis Universal Supermoto Front Fender'
$23.99 on Amazon.

I did not like it because it's too short. One problem you will have is that when it's wet/raining the water will splash on your face when going over 35mph. The fender is too short/small.
