Most in common with a wr200. I have a Dt200r and wr200. The wr is currently disembodied. Lately I'm thinking I should turn it is a dt200wr. 
Dual sports are awesome. I can't provide any sm info though

« Last post by dt200chris on Today at 09:01:45 AM »
My dt200r project, bought it last October for $450, as a pile of scrap in a milk crate, PO was trying to restore unsuccessfully.. she had good crank bearings... No play what so ever, crank seals had been installed backwards.. so over Xmas I replaced all gaskets, seals, hoses, new wheel bearings, new brakes. 97 yz250 front fender, 2001 dt230 rear fender, DEP S2 silencer, KTM indicators and also fitted slim alloy pillion pegs.... This is not an original resto project, it's resto mod, waiting on boyesen 666 reed set to arrive, already have it registered, awesome lil 2smoke to play with..

Obviously posting about a 200WR in the DT200 section was as successful as posting about a DT200WR in the WR section of this forum :(

...... Bearing in mind that this is the Aussie IT forum, you are going to find that the 200WR is a bit 'Specialist Interest'!

Cheers,

You can run any bike without a battery as long as you fit a condenser in its place which is commonly referred to as a battery eliminator.

I'd imagine but am not 100% certain that the YPVS will function correctly with a running engine and obviously do nothing at idle - my 200WR works like this and has a small condenser mounted behind the headlight which probably weighs 10% of what a traditional battery would do.

Turns out the preproduction bike Yamaha supplied to Cycle Canada had a mismachined cylinder head. This caused the cold running and subsequent poor gas mileage

DT 200 / Shock rebuild/revalve
« Last post by Glenngt750 on Yesterday at 10:55:23 AM »
Was thinking of revalving my shock. Am not sure how much to increase the damping by, though. I have increased the spring up to 7.75 kg/mm, from 6.8 kg/mm (stock spring). That was a 14% increase.  Am not sure a 14% increase in damping would be enough? I went through Race Tech for my front fork, to revalve it. I used their "Cartridge Emulators". Am very very happy. Also increased the spring rate up front, to .402 from .350 kg/mm. Not sure what the changes were up front, as there is a new damping system there. Race Tech said they do not have specs for the shock, but would "work with me" to divise a new shim stack for the shock. I'd like to do the work myself on the shock.
   Does anyone have experience rebuilding/revalving a DT200R shock, or any shock? Your help would be appreciated.
