    Unlike it's unruly BIG brother of that era the WR500, the WR200 is a great bike. Like most 200cc offroad bikes it's the 'perfect' dirtbike.

    Freshly rebuilt 2000 KTM 200 MXC. 2nd week on it. Bought it with a bad connecting rod bearing for cheap and rebuilt it myself. Have a little over 100 miles on it now and love it compared to all the other bikes I've had in the last 5 years. TW200<>XR400<>KLX300<>KTM525<>KDX200<>KTM200. Definitely way better than the KDX for the type of riding I do. Though I did put 2005 race tech valved forks and a shock on it which made a huge difference.

    Anyone have a 2002 200exc motor lying around?
    Mine blew up on me, and im trying to see if the cost of buying a used motor is similar to the cost to rebuild.
    At this point, im thinking it will be 1200+USD to get it back to running.

    Just saw your post. I have a 2006 200 XC-W that I bought new....actually was my first real dirt bike. I still have it and ride it a lot. This bike has been amazing! Due to my lack of skill, I have thrashed it, crashed it, over heated it more times than I can remember and until recently, did little maintenance on it. Ironically, it took me years to learn how to ride it well. The best thing I did was put a ReKluse clutch in it. I'm pushing 65, so I think this will be my first and last real dirt bike. I recently hopped on my buddies new Husky 2T and would take my old 200 over his bike any day. After 13 years with this bike, I've learned quite a bit about it, so if you have questions, feel free to PM me.

    I picked up a 2007 200 xc that a buddy had sitting in his barn collecting dust for years and the girlfriend rode it on some double track this past season. The only downside other than the kick start only (I mean I would love the magic button on my bike too) is the thing is just too damn tall for her. With no rear link I'm assuming the only way to lower it is to send the suspension out to a suspension shop. My questions are, has anyone on here had any experience lowering one and how much lower can it actually be dropped?

    Here's my old 1973 RD200. I sold it several years ago. I kept it around for tiddler runs. It would do 75MPH. 2010vac+rdpic 024.jpg

    Hey All! New to the thread. I bought a '92 WR200 3 years ago. I absolutely love the bike! its the smallest bike that I own and i probably leaves me with the biggest grin. I just bought an FMF pipe and silencer for it and Im hoping it gives me a little more grunt. Next are reeds. I was curious though, I need a right side, lower fork guard. Mine is cracked and not staying on. Im not comfortable riding without one. That said, they are a bugger to find. Does anyone know of any year YZ that might cross over, possibly 91-92? Thanks!

    Nice IT! Still one of my favorite bikes. I have an IT490. Its a blast, but it beats me up at the end of the day. The 200 feels 100lbs lighter at the end of the day. I hope to find and buy one myself!
