1990 Yamaha DT200R from Canada
« on: November 18, 2017, 11:19:05 PM »
I have always lusted after the DT200R, since seeing a brand new one in the Dealership. Saw one on Kijiji in 2005. Went and looked and purchased. It had only 1200 k.m. on it. Original tires were still on the rims, in good shape. He had bought the bike for his daughter to learn on, but she wasn't too interested. Score! It was mint.
   Never ended up riding it that much, until 2016, when I decided to either keep it as a Collector bike or just use it as intended. Decided to just use it! Joined the "Dual Sport Forum here in Alberta and started going on some rides. Have really found this "little" bike to be very capable. Learning to ride off road, as I have come from a street riding background. I once owned a 1983 Suzuki RM125, which I rode sparingly. Have found this bike to have enough power to do what I need it to do, but the suspension is really lacking for my weight. Am going to try to improve it by respringing and maybe even adding "Emulators". Any other DT200R owners who have modded their bikes who'd have some advice for me would be appreciated. Also am looking for plastic for my bike. Thanks for having me!

Those bikes look awesome! I'm sure there are none here in the US cuz of all the tree hugger laws! Living here in NY is pretty close to Nazi Germany.. I'm waiting for our gvt to outlaw all two strokes including weed eaters.. cool bike!

Thanks! I never understood the big fuss over 2 strokes. Though they do pollute more, they are such a small part of the overall picture, to not really count. Unfortunately, Canada now follows U.S. Emission Reg.'s.
