I believe so. It has kick & electric start with a tapering steel swing arm, I think that is the Japanese market model.. Some had alloy swingers too I think. I'm just finding my way around the bike at the mo. Spending more time riding it than researching it.

Hi all, signing in. New purchase 91' DT 200 for $200. Needs some work but looking forward to it. Watching your builds with interest. Cheers, Jono.

Kia Ora,

Has anybody used a lowering link on the DT 230? My girlfriend is using it to learn to ride & she has ickle short legs. Getting a bit more than her tip toes down will give her confidence to ride a further than tar seal. Cheers.

Sorry Harvey, only used the raising linkages. Where are you getting the lowering linkages from? Can you send me a link and I'll post it at the front of this thread?

I'm looking at the moment. Nothing available locally. When I get the chance my friendly local mechanic is going to take the pertinent measurements to see if something for another bike fits. If not he will knock something up for me. Either way I will keep you posted.

A mate came in the shop today who has a buddy in Japan. Apparently because of some weird legislation the DT's are worth their weight in gold over there & appreciating. More expensive than DR's etc. Maybe that's why they are 230cc. He is going to try & get more info & piccies for me.

Found this thread from a few years ago on another forum. Sorry mods if I'm naughty, blame google. A bit of info scattered throughout. YZ 125 pipe eh? Hmmm.
And I found this link for a TTR link. Might get lucky..

Hey Harvey,

I knew I'd seen some lowering links for the DT230 somewhere when I was looking for raising links for mine.



The European 04-06 DT125R/X is virtually the same as the DT230. I got the raising links from the 05 DT125R, $85 delivered.

Have also posted some links to the DT230 Owners Manual, Service Manual and Parts Catalogue at the beginning of this thread.

Cheers
Robo

Finished work on my adventure screen today and it works perfectly, quite surprised really, thought it would have been a lot of frigging about to get it right.

I'm feeling a bit of a numpty.......

On further inspection the pre load is wound right out so all I need to do is wind it back down & the jobs a carrot. Now i just need to find a spanner I can wriggle in..... They have good adjustment for a wee bike..

What brand of sprockets are you using motormail? I'm struggling to find anything over here. Computer say's no...
I'm going to go down 6 teeth on the rear for the road rims. 51 instead of 57

Lovin the screen, I get blasted at highway speeds.

Harvey,

I buy from Chain Gang, have been a long time of fan of their work.

Scroll down about half way to find the DT230 specs.

I've done the 520 chain conversion which means the largest you can go on the front is a 13T and the smallest on the rear is a 42T. I tried the 14/40 combo but doesn't fit.

Cheers
Robo

If I can't dig anything up over here I could end up having to change both sprockets & get a new chain. The things you do for love.
Cheers for the linky dink!

Another NZ DT230 here.
Did you buy that DT230 from Kaiapoi? If so I know the bike & it was originally imported with lowering links already on it.
Also going bigger on the rear sprocket allows larger front sprocket for off road work and less wear on the swing arm sliders etc.

Yup, that's the bugger. Their is nothing on the links to show if they are standard or modified but I have at least 2 cm to play with on the ride height. Soon as I can get my hands on a 30mm spanner I will be giving it a twist.
I have an extra set of rims with road tires but still a 57 sprocket, I want to raise the gearing on this set for the road. It will give my girlfriend a bit more leeway on the highway when she gets her test.
Looks like the bike has been well looked after, I'm very happy with it.
If ever you want to part with yours let me know
Cheers for the info.
