[QUOTE=DCC!!;17617992]Hey guys

I not sure if im in the right place so be kind. I have a 1986 sp 200 that i have been teaching my little brother to ride on. Throughout this entire time the bike has been nothing but problems, and almost everyone of those problems are carb related. It has the stock mikuni bst31ss cv carb on it but the thing is worn out bad.

So my question is what is a good replacement carb thats pretty cheap (sup $100 would be nice) that i could just throw on and get some more life out of it. I was thinking about just throwing on a vm28 or 30 and tuning her up and calling it good what do yall think??


Thanks
I used to own from new a 88 200J which was fitted with a TM28SS
carb id no 42A20

DR200 pilots, check your front brake pads regularily. They wear out quickly, probably as a result of heavy use at highway speeds since the front brake is a bit marginal.

Anyone know of any upgrades for better brake performance and longer pad wear?

oem pads are organic GG friction rating, mine are stamped with this on the back. go to aftermarket HH friction rating, if u go off road with these pads front wheel will lock up quicker in the loose stuff but stopping will be greatly improved on the street, again if the stopping ability of the new pads over comes the friction contact patch of the tire to road, than the tire will skid/lock up.
best braking is always a balance btwn brake pads/disk and tire/road surface

Check out pictures from my post last year. I went 80/90 front and 120/80 rear. They were both taller than stock.

Cheers,
Con

How many miles do they typically last? My bike has done 4400 miles on stock pads.

I've gone through four sets of pads I think...I'd have to go back through my records to be completely sure, but i don't think it's worth the effort. I went out in the garage the day before yesterday and noticed that both 200s were in critical need of new pads again. 13,000 miles on hers and 14,000 miles on mine.

My wife prefers the K270s. She's used up the stock tire, one set of K270s, and started on her second set of K270s this summer. I put more aggressive knobbies on mine for the trail. I think I'm going to switch back to something streetier, though, unless I get a TU250.

I know that's right.I upgraded my GS with a Katana 750 dual disc front end,SS lines,and HH pads.I can haul my heavy GS down from sub light speed with one finger.To many fingers equals a bad day real quick like.
