Add a large, good quality inline filter as well.
Yes, already did. Although the rust was so fine I don't know if a filter could have stopped it.
Just picked up this 2005 DR 200 3,900 miles, runs great but the previous owner laid it down pretty hard on the left side. Bought it for $1100 and figured I could fix it up for pretty cheap.
Bought some Kenda 270 tires, 3.25 front and 4.60 rear. I also picked up a polisport front fender, 13 tooth front sprocket, front brake pads, front and rear wheel bearings, gold chain, Tusk handguards and pro taper ATV hi Bars.
I replaced my handlebars with some Protaper ATV hi bars and when I removed the throttle tube I realized it was damaged and not reusable. I cannot find a replacement throttle tube, what is everyone using to replace the factory tube?
OEM not available? https://www.cheapcycleparts.com/oemparts/a/suz/506b31fcf870022ba8af99bd/handle-lever
Thank you, I don't know why I did not even think about a factory replacement!
Another quick question, torque specs for triple clamps, front & rear axles? I do not have a manual yet and I have searched everywhere for specs and came up empty.
this was free download for me yrs ago
Thank you, found the specs off your link!
So finally got evrything mounting up and torqued to specs. Pretty nice transformation, wish I would of taken more prior pics!
List of everything I installed or maintenance....
Micro halogen turn signals
Polisport free flow front fender
Kenda 270 tires 3.50-21 & 4.60-18
13 tooth sprocket
Oil change with HP4 oil
Cleaned & lubed UNI filter
Adjusted the bar mounts & front fork from previous owner wreck
Plastic welded the headlight shroud
Degreased and detailed bike
I am happy with the progress so far.
I did notice this when cleaning the bike today. should I be worried?!
Nice build so far, pretty similar to what I just started. I am pretty familiar with DR650s but first time with a DR200. My son and I are building it as a spare bike for family and friends. 1996 with 3600 miles.
Shinko 244 tires
Tusk hand guards
Generic folding mirrors modified for easier adjustment
New Fly handle bar and grips
Maybe grease the starter as it has a high pitch whine- or is that normal for these?
New Fork Seals, does the standard Suzuki fork tool fit these?
plus a few other things.
Little multiple choice question. You’re about to go on a ride and you check your gas and it’s probably enough to get you home. Do you A- say to yourself it’ll be fine. If I run out I’ll just walk home. B- say to yourself it’ll be fine and then proceed to worry about it the whole day. C-get some fuel. D- fill up the tank and an extra fuel bottle just in case.
A-just run it with the gouge
B- put it your the list to get it welded when you can.
C-ride it straight to the welder shop
D-get a new or used swing arm
E. Cover it with a Metal Mullisha sticker
I was thinking bandaid
Weld it up if it bugs you, and you have access to an amenable welder. A few minutes work for a good tigger
Thanks for all the responses regarding my swingarm. I am OK with having it welded or even replacing, I geuss I am just wondering if it is even needed? Will it be fine to just ride it as is?
IMHO if u see crack/s with 5x magnification then repair and/or replace, if not then u are fine as is, unless u plan to do big jumps and motocross with it. but it doesn't look deep from the pic and only scraped the raised thick area.
are those tires one size larger or OEM size? looks good thanks
Still looking for a gas tank, mine has so pretty big dents in it.
