what motor will fit in my 87 xr200r

Recommended Posts

Bought a 87 xr200r, very nice bike but someone tried to rebuild the motor and now it wont start, there is spark, fuel and all the goodies seem to be working but no luck.  So I would just like to replace the motor with a running one but I have no clue which motor or year range will fit on this bike.  Please help.

Any engine from 1986 to 2002 XR200R is identical to yours and will bolt in with no modifications. The engines from the earlier XR200R (pre 1986) have a different length countershaft, which means the countershaft sprocket doesn't line up with the rear sprocket.

+1 on the sprocket alignment issue.
