finally snagged me a 200
« on: September 04, 2009, 10:31:16 AM »
Well heres my next project. 84IT200 complete with teenager paint job and decals. Found it on the local craigslist,
price was a little high but it was local so...... Needs alot of work, but it actually runs good. Ill start on it as soon
as the 175J is done. I have a DLS 43MM frontend off a 84 YZ125 waiting for it.
Gonna try the YZ shock too.

Nice one Pete! Looks like it needs some love but I'm sure it will come up nice!
Can't wait to follow the resto.  ;)

Cheers

The YZ rear shock will work, but you may need to get creative mounting the reservoir. The dampening adjuster gets in the way a little. It will also increase suspension travel and ride height a little. Be sure to check that there is still enough room for the lower chain roller with the suspension fully extended. I have a YZ shock on my son's bike, and we are very happy with it.

That doesn't look that bad mate, I'd love a project like that. Have you got another IT200 you don't want.  ;D.  Look forward to seeing it done

Good one Pete looks complete too! You will love that DLS front end mate, its a huge improvement on the single set up.
