There are "year segments" to supplement the basic info. Bought one a few years back, it's handy.
Rear Shock Adjustment. Does anyone have a link to the proper tool or should I just use a hammer and screwdriver?
H and S is all u need. check my post about replacing the spring with a better one from a yamaha. I had to crank the oem all the way down to keep from sagging. with the yamaha spring only need to crank half way for a great ride.
Thanks. I wanted to try adding some sag for a vertically challenged rider who wont use all of the susp travel.
Short 80km loop around my backyard today. Very enjoyable ride on the junior DR
Well folks, i've had a great ride in DR200 land...but it's time to change the garage fleet around a bit. I've sold the DR to a nice young lady and wish her and you fine folks the best.
Happy trails and safe riding!
I hope you keep following this thread to lend your experience, thanks.
That's a very nice "backyard"
Yes, just like the Mojave desert but without the distracting trees and lakes!
I ride 5 minutes up the street to the fsr which leads to many many miles of backroads, im so lucky. I also ride some rugged single track in the same area.
Hi all. I am looking for some used side panels / fairings in white that would fit a 2007 dr200se. Can't find anything used on ebay, craigslist and new ones like on bikebandit are a bit expensive. I want to have some Pakistani truck art painted on it as a second set of plastics. I am bring back to Islamabad a white front / rear fenders and would like to complement it with some white side panels. New or used but reasonably priced. Any ideas? ... Photos attached show my bike in Colorado as well as examples of Pakistani truck arts so you get my idea.
Thanks in advance,
Just bought an 87 dr200, I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get a service manual for it? I can only find 96 and up Cheers !
From the first page:
'96 and up ought to be good because the DR200 didn't change untill recently.
87 dirt model? I always wanted to ride one. Six speed pumper carb yay. Kick start only. Looks like fun. Good luck.
Yep. Cheers mate
Ok cool. I thought it may be the case that it hadn't changed. Thanks mate
Same to you too Old wanderer - and thanks for the info you've shared through the years.
I've now done valve adjustment to 0.10mm on both intake and exhaust - seem to notice slightly better idle sound (no more noticable clicky/hissy sound). I haven't rode the bike or put it into gear yet since the valve adjustment though.
When I checked valves before adjusting - the intake (back of engine) was above 0.20mm (too loose), and the exhaust (front of engine) was under 0.04mm (too tight). - Would either of these valve settings possibly damaged engine as I rode it for a further 5000km (or so...)?
My scientific opinion is: Nah
nope since they got that way during operation. if u set them that way and then ride, yes it would cause damage, esp the exhaust
I received my ebay led headlamp after 3 months wait, installed it and tested in the shop. Nice improvement over stock.
But somehow at some point the key was left on
The battery reads 1.9 volts with the meter. Is there a chance this battery could recover to being reliable or should I replace?
Im going to let it rest before putting a charge to it.
