dt230 basket case
« on: January 19, 2012, 03:27:32 PM »
Glad to see a section for this odd bike,thanks!
My 99 230 basket case is finally running! Many thanks to all who helped. A WR200 piston fitted spot-on, bit of sorting with the harness(my fault) then it started straight away. Cutaways in piston werent EXACTLY the same but heights were fine. Just need to give it a proper run now, pics soon.  :)

The DT is now ready for RWC! Running very well, only a few km on the fresh top end. Unfortunately i now have to sell my beast to finance a VMX project. If anyone is interested let me know. 2k is a fair price i think. Any interest? Will try to attach pics and put in the for sale section on this forum before i go to ebay. I dont quite know how to post the pics but i will give it a go.
Cheers Shane
