Need a chain guard

Just picked up an '04 dr200, great shape but missing the chain guard.
Anyone know of a source, or should I just bite the bullet and go to
$usuki?
Thanks

Ebay is the most likely place to find one.Then the stealership.

Got my carb re-jetted and FMF pipe on.
I can now start the bike without using prime, or choke.
Hold throttle open a tiny bit and hit start, BAM!
Fires right up.

Renthal CR high bend bars fit great, too!

Can't ride yet because I ordered the wrong flippin' size inner tube.
But the new one should be here pretty soon.

Kientech rules.

I uh...
Forgot! LOL
I just bought the kit from Kientech, it's a little leaner pilot, adjustable needle, and an adjustable fuel screw. I haven't played with the needle position but I did fiddle with the fuel screw a tiny bit and it runs great.

It's been sitting in the shed all night and I'm going to see if it will start today after work without using the choke or prime like it did yesterday.
I imagine it will.

I have a DR200 and an F650GS an '07 and I think it's a perfect combination. Lucky for me I don't have to get permission from a wife to buy a bike.

If the ambient temperature is fairly warm then that's fine but if it's cooler out, say below 60-70F or so, you're probably a bit rich on the pilot. The choke is on there to fatten up the mixture on cold starts. If you jet to bypass this feature then you're running rich the rest of the time that the bike isn't cold.

I haven't ridden the bike yet to play with it any.
I started it yesterday after work and let it idle for a bit before I changed the oil.
It started right up with no issues. It was about 65F in my area yesterday?

My new rear tube comes Wednesday so I'll get that one and go for a test ride. It'll probably pop on decel, and I'll take care of it.

I was mainly just noting the difference in how it used to be, had to sit with the choke on, or even ride a bit with the choke to get it to warm up.
I bought the jet kit after it took me half an hour to feel the bike was warmed up, only to have it stall if I didn't rev the piss out of it all the time.

I've also removed the airbox lid along with the fm exhaust.

Open side always faces in to limit dirt intrusion.

New (to me) DR200

Hi all ! I just went out and bought a 2005 DR200 , gonna use it as an extra bike for guests and to play around here on the property . The previous owner could not find the owners manual and I cannot find one anywhere online . Anyone know where I can get one ? Also , the petcock has reserve , on and prime . What is prime used for , if I run out of gas ? Also , is the garage going to flood with gas if the float sticks in the carb? thx guys looking forward to seeing what this bike can do !

Reserve and On are controlled by vacuum. They're only really on when the engine is running. Prime lets fuel run into the float bowl regardless of whether the engine is running.

Hi all ! Thx for the info , that makes sense now that i think about it . I think all of my street bikes had vacuum operated petcocks , just no prime setting . Whats kinda funny is my son and I each have a ktm 450 in the garage but I'm really stoked about this bike . By reading a lot of the posts on here I see alot of other people love their DR too ! thx again for the info

Got my Kenda K270 on.
I dig it.

Went for a short putt-putt.
Bike is LOUD but sounds good.
Hesitation between 2nd and 3rd, full throttle and slow acceleration.
Turns out my flippin' choke was out half way when I first started - but did not ride - the bike after jet kit install.
So, this weekend will get the carb set up proper.
