Does anyone here know if the expansion chamber of this model will fit on the DT200?
Would really appreciate it!

Mate have a look on the pipe for the part number. DT200R part number is 3ET-14610.
Here's link from ebay for NOS one that'll give you idea where to look for the part number.

   Hello there, you can make it fit, but it will take some cutting and welding. The chamber fits the cylinder but the frame lugs don't. The stinger part also comes in a different angle. It is doable, yet I'm not sure it's worth it.

Wow forgot i made this post here!
Got the 2 part numbers from yamaha yesterday and they are different..
So this cutting and welding, is it only on the tabs that bolt to the frame?
The different angle at the muffler doesn't worry me too much, and is that from personal experience? or are you guessing?
Im hoping its worth it just for the sound and the look, mine has an after market silencer and its too quiet for my liking.

Considering there are no A/M options for the DT200 anymore (I think) your on the right track.  If you can get someone to TiG weld the lugs and OxyAcet heat and bend the stinger where you need your all the way there.

   So, did you like the bike? Was it as you expected it to be? A small review if it's not too much to ask?


   Cheers, Fanis

Hi Fanis,

The bike was great fun and just what I expected. I'll be happy to write up a short review for you, but for now, enjoy the videos!

   Hi Jimbo! I really liked the videos, especially the one with the riverside trail. It must be great riding there! The bike sounds crisp and lively! What gearing do you use? I use 13-48 but I also take it out on the road at times! About the review, I don't actually need a review for me, as I have been riding a WR200 for 13 years and still love it, I just want to make more people aware of that great little bike!  ;D ;D ;D

   Cheers, Fanis

Good stuff, thanks Fanis, I'm running stock gearing (13/52) as I have another bike for road use  ;)

The bike is running nicely enough in the mid range and up top but the off idle is rough, it won't idle and runs on with a closed throttle currently... I'll be borrowing the carb off one of my friends bikes to narrow down the issue.
