The little DR is a pretty low performance bike so not many go through the trouble of sourcing, installing and tuning a direct-lift carburetor for it.

That said, I have a Mikuni TM31 on our DR200. The TM31 was a stock carb on couple year models of Suzuki dr250 dirt model.
That carb works really well on the 200 but they are almost impossible to find.

I've played with TM33 and TM36 on my KLX250, I'm pretty sure the 33 would be too big for the 200.
