I love the height with that shock  ;D  It fits the front forks completely.  Should be just right for my height.  What shock is it?

That shock looks like YZ125 J or at least IT/YZ 81 or 82.
No rush, there's plenty of time. Do it next week, what could have been done today.

You have a nice project bike. And a Good one as well. :D The 200 is a great bike and you cant hardly kill that engine. I have had crank seals go out and the engine just keeps on running.





If your shock is to long it may cause some bad handling issues. A few guys have tried to put YZ shocks on with out much success. Get us a center to center distance of the shock bolts and we can compare it to the correct shock. The only YZ shock I am aware of that is even close to use on the IT200 is the 84 YZ125 and it had both compression and rebound clickers.

Is that a new side panel or did you clean it up?? If you cleaned it up what method did you use?? AL

The 84 YZ125 shock is just a few mm's longer than the IT200 shock. In your case it might help a lot being you race the bike. I will see if I can find my shock lenght chart. Check the link below. It shows, Make, Model, Year, lenght & etc. Al

the reason i'm going to try the yz shock is to get a little height, and racetech lists a bigger range of springs available for it...

Yes will be interesting to see how it goes.
I have to go the other way actually as I am about 5'4
So will need to lower the suspension ...
That site should come in handy

Have a look on the shock at the top of the body near the reservoir hose to see if there is a compression/dampening adjustment nob. This was a feature on J model yz's. If it's not there, it may be a 
IT shock due to the length of the reservoir canister.

Brilliant!

Thanks for that link, has confirmed a few things I have been spruiking about lately and will help a few mates chase down replacement fork tubes.

Now we just need a stock length and spacing chart..... ;D

It doesnt take much to pull these things down does it..
WIll be a long process to get it back together again however,
Have not decided yet on what to do with the frame ..ceramic coated or painted ..
I have some frame bits ceramic coated on my XJ600 which seems OK
Anyway the motor needs to be split now and find out why the crank doesn't spin !!
I have located a parts bike so I will have a few spares coming in ..
Will help in the rebuild.
Frame and other bits and pieces seems to have a bright green paint under the grey primer.
Look familiar to anyone???





This green is all over the place..

Compliments the rust and has that "Flower Power" look to IT.

Moss.....sure it's not algae growing on the yellow under the primer..... :D :D



Good luck with it mate.

No problem and thanks for letting me know.

As for what to do with the frame. If my bike was tore down that far. I would have it blasted and do any repairs that it needed then have it Powder coated. There is shop about 40 miles from me and his powder coating is about indestructible. You can hit it with a large ball peen hammer with the ball end and you will dent the steel but not chip the powder coating. His shop does awesome work. See if you can have it powder coated but do a small piece first and check it with a hammer. Not all shops go the extra mile like the place I take my stuff to. Al

Well that is definitely a project. Be interesting to see how the frame comes up after its been blasted,  must admit it looks fairly straight from the pics.

I must admit I like the powder coating option as well but a vht rattle can also does the job.

Good luck with the resto.

IMO powder coating bike frames is pooze !!!
 It looks to thick and to glossy
 then after awile moisture gets in through stone chips and
 it peels like cheep crome.
Id go with 2k at least you can touch it up.

  Sorry just the way I see it  ::)

Bruce, This is what makes this forum great. Every one has a idea and it gives more options be it better or worse there is options. Personally I have seen powder coating peel as well and that is why i mentioned to have a small piece powder coated first. Some places do a better job than others. Al

I have had a frame powder-coated and there are pro's and cons over the ones I have painted....all well covered elsewhere. I think they both have there place. Al has a made a point of quality and that is generally the key to it's longevity. My P'coated frame was done by people well versed with biker's needs. Their prep was first class and neat attention to detail with threads etc. The frame numbers only got a thin coat. The only issue I had was tolerances between cases and frame engine mount lugs.....very very fight tit.

Have had the bike in virtually all terrain over 5 years and only has a slight stain from fuel overflow...powder coating is white on my old DR650 and are powder coated as stock. The other bike frames are fixed with a rattle can in no time....which is good coz it's often.

Guess that's why they are all black..... ;D ;D :D :D


Cheers,
Chris.

thanks for all the advice..
I have had the fairing frame on the XJ ceramic coated ..came up OK
its a satin black colour..

But...I know what you mean it looks thick and not yet convinced I like the look....

I like the idea of being able to touch up with paint if I go that route.
They don't sand blast their work but chemically strip everything ..

I will decide when the time gets a bit closer ..

Two things to consider, you can specify a thinner powder coat and painting a cleaned up rust pitted frame doesn't hide much unless you do a lot of hi-fill primer sanding.

...actually there's three....I often use a black texta to touch up too..... :D :D :D

Split the motor today
Cant get the crank out of the right crankcase so its soaking overnight in inox
It has two seized main bearings and a gearbox bearing..
one gear is damaged so assume there will be more.
I have come across a  low hour engine so will be able to rebuild the lot ..
This has been dismantled before and put back together ...
Either it was too hard to rebuild or not able to!!
I will find out as I check the gears etc.
This guy who has the 200 parts also has a low hour 83 IT175
He wants to sell it to me however I have no need or desire for one.
Its an american model so dont know how rego would go in Aus.
I will start another topic on that one....

also have decided to strip the frame myself and just paint it .
I'm with bruce and al ..not keen on the possibility of the powder coating coming adrift ..all comes down to the quality of the job and I would rather not gamble on it .
I have heard about some red oxide primer that will be able to hide any pitting so will give  that a try .

No .Its still in the US actually ..

Got that other bearing out.
Workshop manual actually says to place it in the oven to heat it up evenly so did that and out it came.
Thats all I can do to the motor for now..
Just waiting for the parts to show up which probably wont be until November..
Should be a lot warmer then and keen to get back into it..

Just curious. Is you engine stock or ported?? If he is building you a custom pipe can you have it made for a ported engine?? Regardless lets see some pics of that pipe when you get done.

And still waiting for the exhaust as i have deferred the build of it for a while as I have had another part that took priority!






Many thanks to Al ..

This is a barrel I picked up on ebay US and had it sent direct to Al for porting ,
I think he has  done a terrific job on it..
Just needs to be sent over here now!!
It will be bored to 1mm over or 47mm
The barrel that came with my bike is also 47mm  so I should be able to run the std one and then swap the ported one with a carb set up to suit and note the difference ......
hang on tight I have been told!

I fixed up the left switch  ..it had a broken  switch and lots of corrosion
I used bits off a TT350 one which was  identical ..
What I do need is a picture of the wiring connectors off an original 200 switch block  ..
The one I have has been rewired and I am not sure if it has a plastic connector or if it is just all  bullet terminals
The wiring harness at the head stem is also butchered so cant tell from that angle..






pretty boring ....   any way this is what I am left with on the switch block wiring loom .
I am after any info or a picture to help with the rewiring ...

I just went through bigshorts build and it appears he has used the bullet connectors for the rest of the wires..
reason I am asking is I am going to order connectors etc and need to know which ones I need ..
I suppose I could just make it up as I go....

Your manual has the male and female ends depicted in the wiring diagram along with the block connectors.

mine is a little different as i used an aftermarket switch block, however all the above information is true and correct, connectors are in the manual you can source them however your better off using what is most robust rather than original and my only other advice is get the right gauge wire. just finished putting a 6v horn on the 175, works a treat

I should  add that  I live  five hours drive from broadford ..that's the main reason why it took a year to get done...
I organized drop off and pick up when ever it  would fit in with my travels..
He was very understanding and helpful in this matter !
geoff would of have it done in the expected time frame!

That porting looks kinda like some thing I would have done.  Even the spring tab fix looks similar.  :-X

Any way I thought after doing a few keys I would check some bolts etc and change the  oil..

Found the sump plug loose and not far from dropping out !
Some advice to any new rebuilds ..........check the sump plug as well..
Could of been costly..
