2001 XR200 decompressor cable replace

Recommended Posts

The cable on my sons XR200 broke and I want to replace it. Has anyone done it, and have any tips? Not sure how to fet at the bottom part yet or what might need to come off. Thanks

 

Edit: False alarm. I didn't realize the bottom of the cable had another disconnect behind the dipstick, so it was very easy as mine was broke only at the very top where it attaches to the cylinder, so no need to dig into the motor.

Just find TDC on compression and adjust until you have 1 - 2mm free play at the tip of the lever on the cylinder head.  Tips.............lube the cable and pivot points before adjusting.:thumbsup:

Thanks - do I check free play by pushing down on the kick start slightly?
