This is the type for DR350 and DRZ400, comes also in 16T:

Those guys have a different part number for DR200 but not in 16T

the inside spline is the same
make sure you have a 520 and not a 428 chain
that is the planned upgrade for my dr125 is to 520

I believe that is correct. But the offset of the sprocket on the shaft is not the same, from what I can tell...

Does anyone know how many ponies a stock DR200 puts out?

sprockets

Hi ,

Checked out the sprockets on my Dr over the weekend, they appear to be 12/47 is that even possible? Need to replace them soon, and want to get the revs down at my normal cruising speed. At the moment it seems that 70km/h is about best, sounds best without the engine going crazy. There is still plenty of "power" at 70 and the bike accelrates freely from there if i open up the throttle. Going to work back from the tire size to engine sprocket and then back again to get about 80km/h at the same revs as i was getting 70. Is this too much or not? As it stands first gear see;s me changing up half way through a single lane robot! and second is fine for take off although i still take off in 1st. second may be a tad under powered at first but is much more usable than first once the bike starts moving. any thoughts on this?

It might depend on the year model, but for most DR200's here in US the stock sprocket sizes are 15/45.
I'm going to go to 16/45 since our DR is not really ridden off-road. From small county roads and dirt roads all the way to occasional short hop on a freeway where you better be doing close to 70MPH.

12/47 is VERY short gearing. See what larger front sprockets are easily available to you and order one. No need to over-complicate this with trying to hit some magic RPM number at certain speed.

Where are you getting the 16T sprocket? Will it fit w/o a new chain?

Good question.

There are conflicting reports out there about this but SOME say the front sprocket from DR350 and DRZ400 fits the 200. Some say it's not a perfect match....

So I ordered a 16T DRZ sprocket from "Sprocket Specialists".
http://www.sprocketspecialists.com/P...roductID=15815

The DR200 sprocket is model "589", this DRZ400 one is "536".

As soon as I get the sprocket I'll send a comparison report.
From what I gather, the splines on the countershaft are identical, so the sprocket "fits" but the offset might be little different. I'll send pictures and measurements after it arrives.....

Oh, the chain. It's only only one tooth larger and there's some "room" at the chain adjusters so I hope it fits. If not, I have a longer 520 chain laying around somewhere

ADJUSTING REAR SHOCK ON MY dr 200

Has anyone adjusted the preload on their rear shock? I have my tire off changing rubber and thought it would be a good time to look at adjusting it. There doesn't look like any easy way to get at the adjustment ring unless you pull the shock. Looking for suggestions or a "How To" from those that have done it. Thanks Wardie

I've adjusted the shock preload right there in place.

Used a large flat screwdriver and mallet to slowly tap & turn the adjuster ring.
It's little slow that way but certainly easier than to pull the shock if all you want to do is adjust preload.

If,OTOH, you plan to do more maintenance in the rear suspension area (read: lube the linkage bearings) then might as well pull all the junk out and do the adjustment on the bench.

shock preload & headlight rack?

Thanks for the tip I'll try adjusting it that way.

Has anyone installed a headlight rack like the one from Turbo City? I just ordered my saddlebag racks from Happy Trails and thought I see if one of these headlight racks would fit.

I am installing a pair of irc-GP-110's. I 'll give a report on how well they work later. Wardie

I put a turbo city headlight guard on my 650 after losing a $80 headlight to a rock from an oncoming dumptruck. Good investment. If you find out they make one for the 200 let us know.

I also did the happy-trails luggage thing and am very satisfied. 1 word of advice; if you're gonna replace the rear turn signals, go ahead and do it during the rack install.

looking forward to hearing how those 110s work out,
Will
