What seems to be the most popular rear wheel for the bw200? And what size? What is a fair price for a running bw200?

Anybody know if these will fit the early '80s XT250? Sure looks like they would. Otherwise maybe someone could post a few key dimensions for me of the mounting area? Like the height, width, depth of the mounting boss, and the size/position of the pivot hole? Appreciate any help, thanks.

Modern XT250 footpegs use a 10mm pin, where as most other Yamaha footpegs, including the TW200 use an 8mm pin. Yamaha seems to make a specific footpeg for every model that doesn't interchange with other models. The left BW200 and left TW200 footpeg are the same part, but the rights are different. If you get a cheap ebay set, they fit the BW200 due to the poor quality, because they are made too thin for the TW200 which is slightly wider than the BW200.

I will have some brand specific footpegs for both the BW200 and BW350 in May.

Bill

Well thanks Bill, now I know they have an 8mm pin which is what my XT250 has. I guess I'll just order them and see how it goes.

The second one was dropped off for me. The owner brought it down from the Yukon.

It's in OK condition. It's had a rough life but is mostly complete. The rear brake linkage is missing and the carb or the throttle cable seems to be seized. The cable does move a bit, so my money is on the carb... Another $30 special will be ordered. I'll try the Wyncycle kit, this time. It looks like it's got part of a road sign in front of the back wheel. Not sure if something is missing behind it or not. I won't have time to get into it for a few weeks.

Anyhow I scored this one, with E start, for $300.

Finallly Complete!

Hello,

This 1987 bw200 came to me looking really rough. After many hours of sanding and brushing I had finally completed it. As soon as I had seen the bike I knew I needed to have it. Then that's when my obsession kicked in. Now done, don't want to get er dirty. Thanks to all that have provided the help in order to get it done, especially Bill for the swing are kits, awesome...

Now time to ride!

Greg

Does anyone have any advice for getting my BW350 legal to ride off road only in Arizona? Short rides up and down the street are fun but I want more! All I got was a hand written bill of sale.

I had my BW full street legal before they came out with the OHV program. Then I just got the OHV tag (since I don't plan on rolling down I-10 on it anytime soon).

Not sure about the Bill of Sale. I'd head to a third party or straight to the DMV and start the process. I had to deal with a no-title transfer once and if you can't get the original owner to go to the DMV with you, it can turn into a PITA.

Tire selection

Ok so I know this has been discussed over and over but I'm still hesitant what size tires to buy to replace the worn out ones on my BW200. ITP makes a MudLite AT in 25x8x12 which is a direct replacement for the front. And they make the same tire in 25x12x9 which is 2" taller but the same width. Or a 22x11x9 which is 1" narrower and 1" shorter. Any of you guys run these tires ? I mostly ride in mud and trails. No snow. What are you guys running and how do they handle?
I know it's a lot of questions but here's more....has anyone bought the plastic kits on eBay ? How did they look and fit ?
Thanks
JB

Swapped the rear sprocket out for a new one on the BW200, then took her out for a trail ride. This little bike so much fun! I spent 2.5hrs out exploring the trails and fire roads that start about 5min from my house. Lots of mud and big pools left over from the spring rains, but she handled it like a champ.

You can really keep up a surprising amount of speed on the trails, the big tires just float over the rocks and roots! Really fun and surprisingly quick and nimble!

Also stumbled across a couple burned out /stolen vehicles ..... the (Volvo?) sedan was WAY back in the trails .... shocked it made it that far!

The (ranger?) truck was at the top of a big hill climb on the edge of a massive gravel pit.
