    Hey the dr200 is obviously geared for torque and maxes out at 100 km/h with the stock sprockets I have heard. I got a 09 dr200 I plan to do some longer trips with here in Mexico. Some stretches i will be driving on highways so it would be nice to be able to cruise around 120. then change out the small sprocket on the road once i encounter some challinging terrain. So I bought a stock 15/45 jt sprocket kit from ebay as well as a 16t front sprocket for longer driving on asphalt roads.

    A few questions:
    What is the top speed of this bike with the right sprockets for max top end?

    What is the biggest front sprocket that will fit on the bike?

    What tires are recommended for this type of tour, I will be driving quite a bit in sand.

    Is there any easy performance mods i could do to get slightly better performance? Upjetting? FMF Pipe?

    Is there a big bore kit available?
