DR125 converted to DR200

It can be done. A DR125 can become a DR200. It's just a matter of engine, carb, and sprocket transplant.
On the trailer, ready to go to a friend's shop.

On the lift at the shop.

My daughter wanted to drain the oil.

I like to take pictures of her learning about motorcycles.

Interesting. Seems like it was a bolt-on swap? Anything special needed? A friend has a dr125, I'll point him this way for sure. That bike could use another 75cc's.

We put a DR200 carb and a sprocket set along with accompanying longer, beefier chain. As I recall, some bracket on the top of the engine attaching it to the frame had to be bent a little for it to line up. While we were at it, we replaced the fuel valve with one that has an off position.

I love having the increased power, especially going up hills.

Upper motor mounts from a 200 would help

But not absolutely necessary says Ben...
You could just do some jet swaps in your carb - same carb body...
I have all the jets if anyone wants to buy em as Ben just swapped a spare carb onto obsidian's bike.

When the time comes for more power, I heard the DR 125 cam bolts right in and really wakes up the 200 engine. Haven't tried it, but I heard it works well.

The DR200 cam is the better of the two.
