XT200 Info

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, (& gals)

I recently took a chance and bought an '82 XT200.  The bike came with a cracked clutch side cover, and spare kick start parts, otherwise everything else is there.


Any information someone wants to share with me on re-assembling that side, gummed up carb, no battery (does it matter for the spark?),  or anything else, is gladly accepted and appreciated.

does not need battery to run.


my brother went through 4 or 5 side covers on his.  he kept breaking them from the kick start hole until he found a solution.  as he had nuked a head on it when it got swamped once,  he put the head from a Yamaha 200cc 3 wheeler that had a decompressor.  after he started using the decompressor he never broke another side cover.  I do know the bottom end off of the xt225 was the same if it was a 5 speed one.
