DT125R base manual:

http://www.mediafire.com/download/7z4jbwqm5gp/Yamaha_DT125R_88_Service_Manual.pdf

To be used in conjunction with DT200R supplement:

The DT200R supplement doesn't seem to be about but I can send it to you if you PM me your email.

BE WARNED: the manual is correct for AUSTRALIAN models, whenever I copy parts of it for Canadians they tell me I'm wrong. And the float level in the manual is wrong, it says 22mm with round floats when it should be 16mm with rectangular floats.

No,no you're wrong! I think you're right. The Canadian model and the rest of the world seem to be the same. Do you remember some differences?  I can see 2 very minor differences with the engine and frame serial number. Ours starts with 3MH, yours 2YY.

I think there are differences in the electrical system on different models, the Australian models only put out one and a half amps on the charging circuit and the tail light, head light and instrument back lights are on a different ac lighting circuit that only comes on when the engine is running.

And I just checked, it was a South African not a Canadian who told me that their models have the brake and instrument back lights come on with the ignition and that their charging circuits must put out more.

I'm mainly looking at assembly of the bike for the moment.
What I have is several boxes of bits, never a good way to start a restart a resto I know. The engine is together but unknown condition, that makes me cringe  :-\

Just remember that when the DT200r was assembled in the factory they started with the airbox on a stand and built the rest of the bike around it.

If I recall correctly (I may not), there is some conflicting information regarding carb jets across some manuals, perhaps due to elevations of different markets

You do recall correctly, the air jet size in the manual is wrong, it says it is a 0.5 when in fact it's a 1.2 or something similar, and the float levels are wrong.

Australian models have no air bleed/idle mixture screw adjustment whereas I think some other models do.
