Hey Chuck, will the TLR triple tree accept the XR forks, or do you need
the XR triple tree?

The forks will not work for trials.

84 XR 200~free in Sedro Woolley, Wa. Have the brake hub but there is a tab broken off that holds the cable.



On the air thing, I ran a 75 Honda CR 125 in three races in Oak Harbor in 1979 with out springs in the forks with no trouble. The blowtaco guys used to run air in their forks to keep the seals from leaking.

Nice set of forks. Do you realize what these will do to a trials bike with 3 more inches of height and travel to a trials bike front end. At the best it would be a chopper. Did you watch the factory supercross guys last year trying just air and failing at it. Maybe you can give them some pointers.

Lets see, the forks are in good shape. And I realize that raising the front of any bike would change how it handles, also anybody can take the old forks apart and make a spacer to limit the travel[and ride height]. And I didn't see one factory supercross guy running a sub 200 lb 39 yo 125 two stroke. And if I were to give them some pointers I would tell them to get ahold of you.

Fair enough, but I think Honda has forgot how fast the 125 2 strokes really were.

The XR200 forks are all basically the same from 84 to 02 (36mm), but in 91 the travel was reduced to 8", might be a better starting point. And you also need the triples. And as others posted travel is easy to reduce. The TLR forks are much smaller at 33mm.
The TLR front end has a lot of rake for Trials riding and cutting the frame to reduce rake is common. My only concern for Trials riding is the offset on the XR forks may increase trail more than the TLR front end. But hey, they will be a lot more rigid than the TLR forks and you should be able to feel the difference so give them a try. The aluminum rim should also make the front wheel lighter. It would be interesting if you could weigh the components and post the weights.

While the hub may not be the same part number as other Hondas the brake shoes are used on a lot of others Hondas like the CRF150/230 and XR200s, so good brakes.

The TLR front wheel use 6301 bearings to suit the 12mm axle, the XR200 use 6202 bearings to suit a 15mm axle. Unfortunately the bearing ODs are different so it is not easy to swap bearings to adapt an XR wheel to the TLR axle, or vice versa.

Info on the `91 on is good, nice touch on the offset. Imagine putting the reflex forks on the XR.

does anyone happen to know the amount of fork oil for the reflex 200? I have the smaller forks, (not the tlr200). When I drained mine today I only got around 4oz of oil out of each side.

4 ounces seems about right. The manual say to drain the forks, remove the spacers and springs, collapse the forks fully, then fill to 4.65 inches down from the top of the tube. Then install the springs and spacers and screw on the caps.

The correct amount is 205cc, which the OP had answered by my buddy Glenn on 8/10. Just for anybody who might be looking.
