Picture of plugged vacuum inlet on carb

The attached photo shows (at the end of the piece of pine straw) a rubber cap sealing the vacuum inlet of the carb on my 2007 DR200.

When you convert from the OEM vacuum petcock to the Yamaha manual one, you swap out the petcocks (no mods required), toss the vacuum line and plug (as done in photo) the vacuum inlet on carb. Thanks to Magestyk for helping me with posting the photo.

Thanks for showing where the plugs goes, BadDawg.

This is retarded question but I must ask anyways. Do I have to drain the Fuel tank, and unbolt/take it off to change the Petcock?
Or is it possible to do the change without doing that?

I'm gonna do this on my bike. I cleaned the Air Intake box twice in the last 2400 miles and I find a small amount of fuel on the bottom. From what I read that might be a sign of my Petcock is goin bad.

I guess you could go two ways on this:

Approach #1 Remove tank. Remove the two side covers, then seat, then the two bolts on the tank. Drain most of the gas from the tank. (You can leave a little in the tank, probably the amount of "reserve" or less is okay.) With both hoses (gas and vacuum) detached, lift tank off. You can then lay it on its right side (so petcock side is higher) on a soft surface. Then the old petcock can be swapped with the new one. No spillage. [Note that most of the gas needs to be drained so that the gas level will be lower than the height of the gas cap when the tank is placed on its right side.]

Approach #2 Do not remove tank. In this case, you need to drain ALL the gas from the tank. Swap petcocks. Of course as soon as the old petcock is removed, you will have an open hole in the bottom of the tank through which any remaining gas will pour. Do this outside.

I took Approach #1.

Finally someone got a reply. I'm definitely gonna buy the Michelin T63 Dual Sport Rear Tire - 120/80-18 (Yours was 120/100-18) So I should be good to go with no problems.

I'm not sure where pioneer is, though I did see several bikes listed there. This one was in Pine Grove, near Sutter Creek.

Here's the tire choices folks have listed to date on this thread. Klay does a pretty gosh darn good job of keeping page 1 updated for us, and the link is there too.

Sp 200

Well, this is the closest thread I could find that fit my bike. Last year I purchased a Suzuki sp 200 for 300 bucks. As Im sure everyone knows, the sp models came right before the dr's. I owned a 1997 DR 200 and besides a few plastic pieces and other small things, they are essentially the same. All I did to the sp 200 was clean the carb and added a few things to try and make it look less dated.lol
I also included a pick of an SP 125 that I picked up a few weeks ago for 100 bucks. I did have to replace all of the gaskets , clean the carb, and recover the seat. They both run pretty good considering Im not much of a tuning guy.

Looks like I'll be owning one soon. ( again )

A friend of mine is going to sell a 2002 back to me after owning it for two years. It now has 2600 miles on her. Seems like a no brainer for $1000. I think I'll keep it and let others ride her as an introduction to the sport. It will compliment my TW 200 well, I think.
