1994 DT200WR from Finland
« on: November 04, 2015, 06:05:44 AM »
So I sold my '84 IT250 and same day I bought this little bike:









It's almost in original condition. Only 2 previous owners, under 28k on the clock. It has new cylinder and piston fitted. Runs nicely and feels good to ride. I dreamed one of these since I was 17 and still rode my '06 DT125RE. This feels pretty much same, there is just much more torque and power to use. Also suspension is a lot better.
It just needs rougher tyres and some nice exhaust. I had Doma pipe in my 125RE and I think I'll buy Doma for this one too, they seemed to have WR200 pipe on the list.
Then I think it will be really awesome little trail runner.

Thanks.
Antti

Yeah, Finnish Yamaha importer Arwidson brought some bikes here during early-mid 90's. These are rare bikes here, I have seen maybe 5-6 of these for sale since 2009 when I first time heard about these "Big DT's". I heard rumour that Finland was only north-european country where these were even imported.

well Finland could be the only EU land that ever imported Dt200wr.

what is the usual price for a second hand one in a normal and acceptable shape ?

   That's a great find McPaavola (it's Andy isn't it)! This is a great example. Congratulations on a great buy! This is my favourite bike. Anything you might need ask and maybe I'll have access to it. Enjoy!


Cheers, fanis


PS: Why did you sell the IT? Do you still have the TZR?

I find myself agreeing with you!



Nice purchase Antti. Pity about all the gremlins that were in your IT.



Cheers,
Chris.

Thanks Fanis.
Well, IT was just rough bike for me. And I have quite limited space to store my bikes, so if I wan't to buy one, I have to get rid of one. And as I wrote, 200WR was one of my dream bikes since I was 17.

And yes, I still have my TZR. It's one of those relics that I won't ever sell. I rode approx 4700km's during this season.
