If anybody needs parts, I have an 86 XR200R that I'm parting out. Some stuff has been sold, but still have a lot left, including the windshield/headlamp assembly.

Could you tell me a bit about the light kit? I have a chance of getting mine plated, but would at the very least need a head & tail light. Did you have to get the stator re-spun? How did you get the tail light to activate upon braking?

You'll find it will respond well to a SuperTrapp muffler (or opt for complete Big Gun header and muffler package) and a Uni-filter with some minor "fish hook" curve tuning for your altitude on the pilot, the main, and the needle position.
Get rid of any snorkle type arrangement that the airbox might have, and a good skid plate will run about 75 bucks or so and offer much better protection than the stock bar type deal.
Powroll make some decent products, too.
The o-ring chain isn't really worth it IMHO if you maintain the bike well. Probably the easiest bike to maintain as oil changes are so simple and valve adjustments so infrequent and easy. Honda really got it right with the small and midsize XR range of bikes. The oil filter is only a little thimble like screen but you can change oil so easily and it's only a quart so it's worth it to change it as often as you can.
I put more than 20,000kms on one with not one failure and I sold it for half of what I paid for it and it was going to need a new cam chain and sliders. Never needed more than three kicks ever to start it.

Nice DS set-up on the XR200! Is it from a specific kit or did you just piece it together? I just finished tearing down an '87 and I'm slowly starting to piece it back together. I ride an eduroized YZ250 to go fast and hurt myself but I can have just as much fun on an one of these. Can't wait till I'm roosting on mine!

xr200r

I watching CL for a 200r. I know the older versions have a better suspension. 1-2 years had the rfvc, and would like to stay away from those years (odd duck, more expensive)

I have an xr650L, the xr200r would be more of a trail/play bike of course.

I've been riding my daughters xr50, and it's making me want a lightweight, cheap, reliable dirt bike.

Hopefully you stayed away from the south loop. That trail is so whooped out my arms are getting sore just thinking about it.
