Thanks for the feedback. I imagine stock is quieter though.


Quite a bit quieter. The FMF is loud even at idle, my 12yo loved it.

I have a CRF230 with a CHM System that has a very acceptable purr until you crank on it.

Has anyone found/installed a "sportier" rear fender?

It's a DR200, I don't think "sportier" and DR200 are allowed in the same sentence.

Question Idle issue.

Question for all you mechanical brains.

My wife's DR200 is having an idle issue. I got on and rode around on it to see what it's doing, and it will not stay running when downshifting if you don't keep the gas applied. There is no chance of it staying running just sitting there in neutral without gas. I figure it's something to do with the idle, but I don't know anything about it. I feel confident in working on it, if somebody knows what the issue is.

Any advice will help. It's bone stock btw.

Plugged Pilot jet. Remove the float bowl, locate the pilot jet, unscrew and clean out the tiny hole. Reassemble and it should be OK.

Sweet! Do you have a picture or a diagram. I really am new to this.

Edit:

I got to the pilot jet. I don't really see anything in there that would be clogging it up. I'll clean it anyway, and reassemble and see what happens.

Quite often you can't see anything when a jet is dirty or partially plugged. I went through this same trouble with my DR200 at one point, and cleaning the jets thoroughly even though I couldn't see anything fixed the problem. Actually, it took a couple tries.

I have a cleaner file set for Oxy/Acetylene torch tips and the smallest cleaner was too big for the miniscule pilot jet.

So I soaked it in Chem-Dip for an hour, reassembled and it idled fine.

1+ on Klay's comments. When that pilot jet is clean you can barely even see through it. If you are going to stick something in there to clean it, use something no harder than copper wire, so the jet does not get burred or scratched.

Sometimes the clog in the idle circuit is further downstream from the jet itself and the passage to the venturi will need to be cleaned and blown out. I throw this in if cleaning the jet makes no difference. Does it run better with the choke partially or fully out? If it does you can be pretty sure you need to clean out the jet or idle circuit. The rich mixture from being choked helps relieve the lean mixture caused by the clog.

Let`s start with the easy one........ Left side of the carb.....follow the throttle cable down to the carb.....Little screw with a spring.....Should engage the little wheel when throttle is at idle.... Make sure that screw is engaging..... That is how you adjust the idle rpm.... If the screw vibrated out.....the engine will die......
Does it other why run fine??????
Second Pilot jet is plugged....... You need to rotate the carb to gain access. It is done through the fuel bowl, on the bottom of the carb...

I hope the link works. It's a TSR 200. Very neat.

Maybe what the DR200 could have been.

I suppose you could drill a hole into the tip of the broken off lever and screw in a screw part way to form a ball of epoxy around. But the purpose of the ball on a ball-end lever is to reduce the chance of puncture injuries from the lever in a crash. If you've got bark busters, that's no longer a factor.

Pissed Pilot jet cleaned, now won't start!

Completely disassembled her carb to clean everything. Sucker was dirty. Re-assembled and it started right up and ran fine. Ran out of gas, got gas, wouldn't start, ran battery down, and put it on a trickle charger for a bit. Opened up air box, completely flooded, so I drained it and promptly got it started. Only thing was, it was super rough. It died when I ran to get a shirt to ride it around the block with my wife at the gas! Now it won't start again. I imagine it's flooded, but I haven't had the time to crack it open again.
