    Any ideas on where I can get a complete DR200 engine? Local friend blew his engine up and is looking for help rebuilding / replacing it.

    I wanted to test the waters before I spent a ton of money on a windshield. A guy on Youtube did this to his DR200SE so I decided to spend the $7.52 for a 3M Tekk Replacement Faceshield and $3 for the Scotch Adhevisve Strips. Like the video recommends, I used a Dremmel to make a small indention for the brake line. It sits on the turn signals and behind the speedometer perfectly. So far, it has been a complete success. The wind is diverted from my chest and you can duck behind it if your helmet visor is too dark at night (like mine).

    And now, the pics!

    Well bought a 2003 dr200se
    With 216 miles on clock. Bike runs ok up to about 35mph. Then falls on its face like it hit a wall or something. Any ideas? Here is what I'm thinking.....

    1. Change petcock to old school manual.
    2. Block all vac lines on carb.
    3. Spin carb and remove jets and inspect.

    On the petcock, gas should be a stream when on prime correct? And res and on only should work when engine is running, cause of vacuum? Mine do nothing when engine is off. And prime is a broken dribble.

    Also I'm
    Guessing bike bogs and looses it self past 30-35 cause gas is not being supplied to carb bowl... Or could it be the jet (s) are cloged?

    And what jet supplies fuel at speed main jet right? Pilot jet is for starting bike?
    Trying to get bike to keep up with traffic at 45mph...

    Gas should run continuously with the petcock set to 'prime'. Sounds like it's clogged. DR200s that have been left to sit for a long period usually have clogged jets, too.

    Can anybody help me?

    My girlfriend rides a DR200 (awesome bike) but I need to do a frame swap. Long story.

    Anyways, I need to know what SIZE steering stem bearings the an '05 DR200 uses. There are plenty of them available, but that's not what I'm after. I just need the SIZE

    Can anybody give me the measurements? Planning a very silly project using 100% leftover parts for a mish-mash motorcycle :evil

    The rubber grip on the throttle assembely is ripped on my dr200. If I was to replace the full handle bars, grips etc what parts would I need exactly.

    Wait... you have a ripped grip, and instead of buying a $7 set of grips, you're going to drop $100+ on new bars and controls? :huh

    Its a good excuse to upgrade as ive been wantibg to replace the handlebar setup for a while and get some barkbusters.

    As for the stock grips, is it just a grip or the whole throttle assembley. What parts do I need to remove to replace thr busted part.

    Take a razor blade, and slice the old grip in half. In less than 5 seconds (no, really, 5 seconds) you can have the old grip off.

    I believe that the throttle side is vulcanized. As such, it is somewhat a PIA to remove from the tube. You can't just "peal" the grip off like you do on the left side. I tried a few things, but the 3M wheel to sand it off worked the fastest.

    Go to a place which sells auto parts and ask for vacuum plugs, select the right size and install on the port where the hose was removed, done. If for some reason you think it may come off, put a small zip tie around it...that's it.
