Nice ride.

Thanks

It is amazingly clean. Motor needed a full overhaul when I got it but other than that it had great potential. Repainted the exhaust, redid the number plate backgrounds but other than that just a good clean and polish. Still has original mirrors and signals! How often can you say that about a 25yo dirt bike.

Abandoned gravel pit
Decent view on this ledge.



View from below

The dudes working the scales were "blown away" when they saw how light the DT is



Then...
A not so abandoned gravel pit mine



Gravity well that runs 24/7

Jfman,
Any chance you could post up a good, detail picture of the '200' decal on your right side panel? I need to have some made.
Cheers

No pictures handy but here's a crappy walkaround video I made in '09 of my 1996 DT200.

Bought it in '07 with 14K, now has 24K.
New Wiseco piston at 20K other than that, it is bone stock.

As far as I know, DT200's never made it onto US soil. I think last year for Canada was this model in '96.
I guess 2 smokes were deemed to dirty for street legal status after that..

K, I am going to represent for my riding buddy who is having some tech problems in getting his pics up here.

Here are his stats:

2 DT 200's = 40,000+ km's

Here are some pics of his and my 2T's:



























That DT is a way more reliable platform then my TS 200 was when it was in it's stock form (glad I got that changed). His DT is bone stock as well, and just as a point of reference, two years ago he did a 2100 km ride on it where my TS broke half way through. I would not hesitate to buy a DT.

And I tried to put up the pics with the DT in the front......

And here is proof that he uses it as it is meant to be used. During his winter upkeeping, inspection of the clutch basket demonstrated that both the machine is tough and that he is not afraid to use the machine:



Think a new one is in order, eh???

'89-96 DT200rw Canadian model

So I figure I will add some info on the DT200R model in above pics.
The various parts can be had through Yamaha USA, Canada(if it happens to be model specific) or aftermarket.
Yamaha Canada has the parts Fiche on there site and I use Partszilla to check PN availability in the US (nice thing with Partszilla is you can see what other bikes used that part if you wanted to dig up a aftermarket piece....possibly)

Motor:
Piston and Rings can be had through Wiseco as well as head and base gaskets. I 99% suspect the WR200 cylinder and head will bolt on with the exhaust flange being the difference...be a good replacement should one kill the DT cyl.
Clutch:
As in the pic above the stock one is toast after about 25-30 000km
Ordered a new one from Yamaha Canada (PN 3ET 16150 for $255) and it is slightly different in width of the 16 tooth driven gear. The new one is 2mm wider over the original. Now this makes me think that the WR Basket and the DT one are the same other than the how the gears are attached to the basket.
So had to shave 2mm off the 4mm washer behind the driven gear or I suspect the use of the WR200 washer (PN 90201-180P2-00) is thinner and is what is required. Steel Plates and Fiber Plates etc are the same for both.

Clutch cover gasket is the same as the WR.

The Tack fitting that goes in the case is a US PN as well.

Sprockets can be had through JT (Front PN JTF 564.13) (Rear JTR 853.pick your teeth, I use 46 so JTR 853.46)

Front wheel Bearings are 6202 2rs times 2

Rear wheel bearings are 6004 2rs times 3

Suspension Linkage bearings are HK202720UU times 6 (2 stock bearings are narrower but these ones fit in no problem) and these bearings are also rubber sealed as a bonus. The 6 stock seals are not available in Canada so do not loose them.

Shock can be disassembled for fluid changes easily. Pull the dust cover off the main body then the shaft seal inside has a notch on its outer circumference...use that notch to get the circlip out by rotating the seal and working the circlip out. Pull the seal out and there will be another circlip further down the body. Pull that and the whole shaft and valving stack comes out.
The reservoir has one circlip and 2 caps will slide out...there is no nitrogen bladder. The nitrogen is held between the 2 caps which are o-ring sealed.
Nitrogen charge should be at 213psi upon refilling.

Top rubber shock bushing is PN 90387-127G8

Lower shock spherical bearing is PN 93399-999T3 (this does not show on the DT fiche)
And the 2 seals for the lower spherical are PN 93104-18077

Brake pads can be had aftermarket ie through Dunlop Pad (PN DP406) both front and rear..just cross reference for another manufacture of pads

Headlight lens was available in the USA but has been discontinued...have not checked in Canada yet

Front fender is a US PN
Same with Speedo cable, Steering head lower taper bearing and upper bearing assembly as well


Surprisingly a lot of parts can be ordered through Yamaha dealers in the states so depending on the CDN $$ can be way cheaper

They never made a street legal 2 stroke WR, I think.

If they did, I want one!

I bought a brand-new Canadian market 1990 DT-200RA in February of 1991.
Very good bike, I felt.
These bikes were not sold in the USA.

The engine design of the 1989-and-later DT-200R is what the USA market 1992 WR-200R used as a base (the rest of the bike was completely different).
The engines were not exactly the same, but close, and while many of the parts were the same, some of the biggies (like the cylinder) were different.
In fact, the 1992 WR-200R sold in the USA was basically a foreign market model called the DT-200WR stripped of it's street-legal equipment like the battery, turn signals, oil injection pump, etc.
This was one of the gripes the magazine testers had with the WR-200R back then, actually:
It was a stripped dual-purpose bike, and they saw that as a cop-out in place of a more serious dirt bike.

Anyone know if there is a large tank that fits the wr200? I heard some rumors about the yz tank and seat off a 88-92 or 93-95 yz fitting the bike. You can get a 3.7 gal for both those bikes.
