1997 DR200SE Supermoto / Motard build.

Recommended Posts

Thinking about selling the motard wheels, they work great- wife has had no interest in riding the bike (been on it twice since built). I own a 450 motard so this one seldom gets ridden.                I put a set of oem wheels with knobbies on it and am currently using it as a dirtbike.

Reviving this thread.  Are the motard wheels still available?

Unable to see pictures on this thread. The only picture showing is one with a DR tank with flowers on it.

I can see all pictures now. Thanks for a great write up and a great build. Here’s my DR200SE, that I messed a little bit with since 2011.

Here’s how my DR200SE has evolved. I got it in 2011. It’s a 2006. I put a rack from Cycleracks and a case for a cruiser on it. After a while I found it lacking in power and got a DRZ. Later, I revisited the DR and noticed that the seat was low. I built a new seat in wood and had it upholstered. It has a secret luggage space under it. After that, I noticed that the bars were low. These new bars are called “BikeMaster Chrome Nighthawk Handlebars 7/8” ”. Voilá the transformation from a dual sport to a Mexican utility motorcycle! There’s plenty of luggage for a shopping round or a trek to Panama. 1BB57177-1D5A-4AF2-A478-99B17DEB5CCE.jpeg.e4a1561cdfbef302de9ae0f793c4372c.jpeg
