Suspension on Honda XL200r

Recommended Posts

I've just bought a 1983 Honda XL200r, and I've never worked on motorcycles before. I was wanting to either upgrade or restore my current suspension, because it is extremely worn out. Anyone know where I can find any parts, or fix what I have?

I've heard some people say you can use parts from the XR200 models, but like I said, i'm a beginner at this.

Not much to do. Damper rod forks have the seals on the rods, an oil seal and dust wiper in each slider, maybe a bushing in the slider.

It's a 37 year old bike, and the XLs were the dual sport versions, don't know if the suspension were "lesser" that the XR versions. Either way if you can still find parts you may be able to bring it up to how it was supposed to perform 37 years ago.....which wasn't spectacular.
