Happy Trails makes a tail rack and sideracks for the DR200. This is Steve's setup:

I looked at the rear TW302 Trailwing on my wife's DR200. In one spot:





And the other side of the tire is cracking also:



Looks like I'm putting new tires on that bike sooner than I thought.

Klay;

Is that an OEM supplied tire? How old do you think it is. Sort of looks like it might have been an old tire at time of fitting. What kind of pressures do you run?

My OEM's (97) are just about worn out (tread) and the is some sidewall and base of lug checking. That's the dilemma I now have; what tires to choose.

Still leaving tomorrow?


Coop;

Let's see that purple seat. Malibu Beach here we come.

Whoops, I forgot I was on the DR200SE thread. Just can't help myself. Show us on the MT thread.


klxrdr;

Other shots of my pannier setup on the Minimalist Tourer thread. As mentioned there, very happy with system.



Another great ride....

It's a replacement Trailwing...we went through a rear tire on both of the bikes. We run the pressures at 30 to 32 pounds for the street. My original never did anything like that. None of the cracking or weather-checking. I ordered both rear tires together so they're from the same batch, and mine saw more miles and harder use. ?? We're switching to K270 Kendas.

Folks, I've always wanted to take my little 200 on a long road trip, so tomorrow I'm taking off for the North Dakota badlands for a look-see. Should be about a 1700 mile round trip. I'm going to ride down the valley of the Little Missouri River. I want to stick to gravel and dirt roads as much as possible for a fresh look at the Dakotas. Beyond that, I don't have any set schedule or itinerary.

Australia has a "Farm" DR200 called the Trojan that has a rear and front rack, mud flaps front and rear, two kick stands (L & R), hand guards, skid plate. Haven't found out how (or how much$) the items would be.

Did you guys notice the kickstart! Now we know where to source those parts. All that we need now is for one of you Aussies to guide us to an Australian online parts source/fiche and we'll have something.

It is pure Suzuki in Australia.

I've looked for parts for sale on-line like some of the US dealers have, but have been unable to locate a website that shows parts for sale in Australia.

aussie dr200

hi gang
this is the little mrs. dr200 and she loves it
i've been looking at the trojans at my local dealer and they can't be road registered which is a huge pain in the ass ....
the aussie government wont allow the dr200 to be road registered any more so it looks like the little 96 will have to do for a while

i'm off riding for the weekend so next week i will go to the dealer and get some prices for the racks and bash plate

derek

I just purchased a stock 98 DR200 and would like to change the stock tires to a larger off road type. Any recomendations on size and tire options.

Why on earth do you need more than 3.4 gallons on a bike that gets almost 100mpg? That's more range than most big dirtbikes with 7 gallon tanks.
