XR200 Fork change over

Recommended Posts

Can anybody tell me if I can put 86 xr200 Forks on a 2001 xr200 without having to change the triple tree. And can I use the rear shock from an 86 on the 2001? Thank you for any help on this.

Yes, the fork legs are both 36mm. The '86 fork will slip right in.  The big difference is that the '86 clamp has more aluminum used and is lighter.

The '86 shock will bolt up no problem with the exception of the reservoir witch doesn't have the mount tab on the frame on the '01.  Not a big problem.
