Update...
So far I found the the air gap on the pulse generator was too big. I asjusted it and I now have a better spark. I haven't done any continuity or resistance tests yet.
I couldn't line up the marks on the coil though when the crank was in the correct spot. Either the cam is off a tooth or the timing chain is streached really bad. time to dig a little deeper.

It is great to see a thread on the XR200. I had a 1980 model and then a 1990 model when I was in high school. I bought the 1990 model new in 1991. They were great bikes! I just bought a 1983 Honda XL200R on friday for $375. It is in excellent condition and runs great, it just needs a clutch. I already have parts ordered and the clutch disassembled. It is a fun project and should be a great little bike! We need to post some pics!

I've had the best of intentions on getting some pics up. It started with camera troubles, then sick as a dog followed by rain/hail. I WILL get some up in the next few days. Glad to hear you guys love these rock solid bikes as much as I do. I hope it's as tough as my Mini trail 50 & 70 were

1L (just more than 1qt) when changing the oil, 1.2 after a rebuild.

What's the difference between the xr200 and the tlr200?

Just brought home a tlr200 today. Have a little work to do on it.

engine wise yours has smaller valves, bigger fins on the head and cylinder, a different cam, and different gearing in the trans. should be the same carb just with different jetting.

for what it's worth, here is the rebuild thread for my xl185s (just a small bore street version of the twin shock xr200)

hey now!

i have an 84' xr200r that i bought new in, well 84'!!

it was a blast, unfortunately living in Los Angeles you really need a metal plate so mine is for sale. it was always a bugger to start but when warm, one kick....whew my foot would get sore trying to stat her!! its the twin carb model.

as for the tail light, i will have to look. if it is the same as my xr400 they put a dual element bulb in the fixture but don't install the second wire for brakes. so all you have to do is solder a wire to the bulb socket and switch it and viola, your in business!!!!

glad to see this thread and some respect and appreciation for the redheaded stepchild of offroad!

Ok. I'm stumped. Motor runs good down low. Higher rpm and under load it cuts out. I have 2 things that are buggin me. The pilot screw on the carb appears to be missing. It runs well at lower Rpm with good throttle response and also will get to the higher rpm if I bring it up very slow. Also, the ignition pulse generator did not ohm out to within spec. I don't know if this means it's getting weak and thats why it dosen't run at high rpm. Does this bike have a rev limiter? Could it be bad? I've so far cleaned the carb, checked the valves, checked resistance for coil & ignition pulse generator. As far as checking timing, my timing light has a positive and negative lead in addition to the one that goes over the spark plug wire. Should I hook these to a 12V car battery just to power the light? Thanks for the help and ideas guys.

side note. for the rear brake to trip off the light. The ct70 also has a drum brake switch that is similar if you can't find one. you can try dratv.com and hooperimports.com for the ones for the CT70 or trailryder or minitrail 70.

I bought an 88 XR200R last fall as my first 2 wheeler. I'm the third owner and I love it. Its been a great first bike and it keeps suprising me in what it wil do.

Welcome to ADV. That is one super clean bike. Thanks for posting the pic.


Has anyone played around with sprockets to get the RPM's down? I currently have 13/47. Would 13/40 be way to low?

The carb was so easy to rebuild and a 118 main jet with a little airbox cutting really woke it up ( 5950' elevation)

Saving for a new light and stator. Maybe a BD dual sport kit.
