I miss my 200 EXC. It was a great woods bike and it was "street legal."
2018 Ice Season begins!
Hmmm This thread has been sleeping awhile. Any 200 guys out there?
Here my trusty 07 200 XC that Shane Watts rides when he comes to Michigan
Does 230cc count? My GPX TSE250R (based on Yamaha DT230 motor in a 2017 Husky like chassis). Aside from some hiccups, it's been a fun machine.
Andrew, just curious, but which country manufactures your bike?
They're Chinese made. I believe the motor comes from the loncin plant. Suspension is made by FastAce. I'd have to dig for some more specific details.
Here’s my 06 200 xc-w. Was my first real dirt bike. By the time I turned 50, I was getting tired of riding rough stuff on the DR350 ( street version) and GS. I really wanted to learn how to dirt ride and a guy I respected suggested the 200. At the time, it was about the lightest trail bike you could buy. Put lights on it and licensed it right away. I struggled with this bike for years. I hurt it and it hurt me BAD. Finally, I had Slaven’s do the suspension, put a heavy fly wheel in it, and then a Rekluse clutch. The clutch transformed this hyper active beast. In all these years, I’ve put one set of rings (no piston) in it and it’s never left me stranded on the trail ....knock wood!! Just finished giving it some long overdue TLC in the maintenance department. After all these years I am totally in love with riding this bike....we bonded! Here in Colorado, most guys pick the 300 over the 200, but I believe these are hugely underrated and a great value.
Sweet looking 200 Randingo. Most guys I know have other bikes, but always keep a KTM 200 in the garage. If you own/ride one you get it! Nothing wrong with the KDX 200 either. BETA just released a new 200 this year along with GasGas making a comeback with their 200. For years I always rode larger displacement bikes. As I get older the smaller cc dirtbikes are much easier to ride all day. I went down from a KTM 250 to my current KTM 200. The 50cc less is more for me.
I always said that if I hadn't gotten the KTM 200, the KDX 200 would be just as good for the type of riding I use it for.
I do have a 400 XC-W for when the riding opens up and gets faster. Additionally, I have WR250R and DR650 for dual sporting and taking long camping type trips (BDR stuff). All these bikes are older, but set up well and fairly well maintained.
I'm with you on the lighter is better (..and a lot more fun), especially as I age.
Where are all the Yammies?
They never had a DT200 in the U.S. They had the not-road-legal WR200 for a couple years and it just wasn't as popular as the KDX200.
Does anyone own a Yamaha WR200? You know, post IT dirtbike? I passed one up last year. It was selling for little money. Kind of regretting not buying it.
95 200 auto clutch, left hand rear brake, yz front and an olins rear. Making DC to run the light bar.
Really drooling over the beta 200. I think its 208 lbs tiny frame. 300s can stress me out lol.
Just picked this up yesterday - '91 KDX200. After over 100 motorcycles come and gone through my garage over the years, my very first "dirt-only" bike!
@Sub Zero owns one that's got supermoto wheels on it. It's a sweet little ride. Very smooth.
My friend has a CA street plated '92 WR200. I've been wanting to get another dirt bike so he offered to sell it to me. Motor is fresh, but needs a new CDI. FMF pipe, upgraded forks but he'll revert to stock before he sells. I'll most likely get it, just need to work some OT!
