XR200 piston & ring interchangeable

Recommended Posts

I am looking for rings for my standard bore '85 XR200. Everything on the internet has pistons and rings up to '83, then skips 84-85, then resumes with '86 and later. Does anyone know if the piston and/or rings are interchangeable? I would think the rings are based piston bore, so another year XR may work...??? I have measured the ring end gag and it's slightly out of spec. I/m thinking a cylinder honing and new rings will freshen the upper end quite a bit. Thanks !!!!

Besides the bore size rings are very unique to the piston, so Honda rings for Honda pistons, Wiseco rings for Wiseco pistons, etc.

85 XR200 is a XR200R and rather unique in the XR200 world because it is based on the 84-85 XR250R RFVC engine. So if standard bore buy Honda rings.

Thanks Chuck. I always appreciate your advice and experience. Having a tough time finding the rings, so I was hoping there may be an interchangeable set, or a universal set for a 67mm piston.
