Head troubles

Has anyone fitted a GS/EN125 head to a DR200? The top end was starved of oil, and I cant find a reasonably priced used or new DR cam cover/head, but I can find pattern cam cover/head assembly's for the GS125 cheap. I think they are very similar.

If i remember the EN125 has 25.5mm inlet 22.5mm outlet

longer gear shift lever

I have searched the site but have been unable to find a answer. Does anyone know where to find a longer gear shift lever for the DR200? Have a case of Bigfoot.

i would think the cheapest thing to do would be take it to an auto shop or anywhere with a welder and have them extend it for you.

[quote=dduelin]This is a 110/100-18 Dunop 952 non-DOT tire. (not for highway use) It has about 1400 miles on it with about half that on pavement. The road miles seem to "sharpen" the knobs back to square-edged. With 14 hp and 75 mph max it isn't exactly ripping the knobs off.

I am pleased with the wear so far and the tire works well in the soft sandy terrain around here. It's noisy as he** on the street and it is wonky cornering on the outer knobs but it works good in the dirt which I got the bike for. I ride on the street minimum 10 miles to the woods and as much as 60 miles. It's paired with a 3.00x21 Kenda K270 on the front. I'll swap the K270 for a more dirt-biased tire at some point.

[Looks great and is what I just tried to do on my DR200, except wondering if you have any clearance issues in the rear? Or maybe I put on tires that are too big. I used D606 130/90R-18 and I can't pull the rear wheel back far enough. Thinking maybe the prior owner shortened the chain since the bike had bald street tires on it when I got it. Any thoughts before I start counting links?]

Pirelli MT21 on DR200Se

I replaced the Bridgestone TrailWings on my wife's 1996 DR200SE with Pirelli MT21 tires. Front 90/90 21, Rear 110-80 18. They were easy to install. Much better off road and also better on paved roads. She has 3500 miles on her bike. We bought it a few years ago with only 500 miles on it. It had been sitting outside for a few years so we got a great deal on it. Anyways, she really likes the new tires. The bike sits a little higher with these tires by the way. Here's a view of her bike at this weekends ride through the Clear reek area near Hollister California. (Click on the image to link to ImageShack)

I went with the MT21 as well. I have not given a full report yet as I only have 150miles on them. So far with about 10miles on-road, rest off-road, they have more traction than the OEM ones and on-road, I feel very comfortable with them. My size was different than yours. 80/90-21 up front and 120/80-18 in the rear. Both were taller than OEM even though the 80/90 should have been very close on paper. The 120 rear is huge but fit with no problems. 110/80-18 would be a better size match in rear.

I looked at the D606 as well since it was DOT but the sizes available were even larger than the MT21.

The tire chafed the chain guard and wore the necessary clearance in the guard in a jiffy. No clearance problems otherwise.

Anyone have any problems with the rear spokes on their bikes. I've got an 07 with 6000km on her. I haven't ridden her much this year but a friend has been learning with it and finished off the rear tire. I levered on a K270 and rode it just long enough to scuff it in and handed her the keys again. I rode it to work a couple days ago and almost chucked it down the road as the rear end got all squirrelly like a flat tire. got home and checked the tire and it was a little low but I also found all the spokes on the rear end were loose. Got at least 1/2 turn on some and a full turn on most. As soon as I find my dial indicator I will double check it for true but it feels and looks good to the eye
Is this a common occurrence with this bike, something I'm going to go through a lot or just a onetime thing with just a periodic check.
I am 210lbs but I don't really abuse the bike, no jumps but some spirited runs through some rocky stuff on occasion.
