Hey guys, I've got an opportunity to purchase a Bw200. It looks to be in decent shape with a cycle rack. The bad: the current owner says the bottom end is "siezed up". I asked him to elaborate and he said that the "gears for the crank are all screwed up" and "the bottom end gears need to be replaced". I asked if he's had it apart and he said "Nope, but you can feel it through the kicker."

So, what do you guys think it's worth and how much do you suspect it would cost in order to get it repaired? I've done a little research and didn't come up with much, but is there any other more common engines that are a direct swap into this bike?

Thanks for any help. :)

$250-300

It's worth more in parts.

I have a complete running BW200 engine that's ready to bolt in if you pick this one up. Also a TW200 engine will work, as previously mentioned. So will a Yamaha TTR225.

I actually have 1986 Honda ATC250R forks, triple tree, front wheel, brake, and hub on my 1985 BW200. It's a HUGE improvement over the stock BW forks and drum brake setup.

And by the way, just in case anybody is considering buying DMOBill's new eccentric swingarm adjuster kit, DO IT! I got mine and it is top quality and MUCH better than the factory Yamaha design. Thanks a million, Bill!

Tw200

Lads,

The BW200 uses a jackshaft setup whereas the TW200 uses a longer countershaft setup. That means the XT225 and TTR225 engines are direct bolt-ins, but the TW200 would need a bit of modification. Compare the parts drawings for the two transmissions.

The 250R forks are 37mm and the BW350 forks are 33mm, so the stock BW triple trees would need to be bored out to accommodate the 250Rs.

I can't comment on the Tri-Z/BW wheel compatibility, but I think I remember reading they are compatible in an earlier post.

Can others share on the Tri-Z/BW wheel factoid?

I think there are a few people looking for air box pieces. If you're getting rid of stuff, I'm sure one of the members here would take them.

What did I miss?
What are you going to use the swing arm for?
Building something interesting?

Ah yes...the airbox too I'm keeping. The one I have, the plastic stud is broken off and tabs on top are gone. Too bad it's such a miserable job reinstalling them!!! My existing swing arm is bent or crooked...I have to squeeze them together to install the axle and even then I can only tighten the nut so much.

That's odd. I remember you writing about that now.
With pipe, when we need it to bring it a certain way, an oxy-ace torch with a rosebud tip can be really handy. Just heat up an area in the shape of a diamond. It'll come that way a bit.
If you did that on the indide of both sides of the swing arm, you may solve your problem.

Forks...

Redman66,

The Tri-z triple is a bolt on to the BW frame, but has a greater rake. The rake is more extreme with the 86 Tri-Z triple and forks than the 85.

The BW triples can be bored out to accept the 85 Tri-Z fork tubes. But the larger diameter 86 Tri-Z tubes would require too much material be bored out of the BW triples.

"HRE" has done a lot of these bore out jobs and doesn't overcharge.

The 85 Tri-Z tubes are 35 mm. 39mm is too much. Not sure about 37 mm. Mike at HRE will know.

Here is a link to HRE. They do a lot of three and four wheelers, but are familiar with Big Wheels and the various front end mods.

http://www.hreatv.com/index.html

And on the front wheel, same rim, different hub.
