230 body on 200

Does anyone know if the crf230 seat, tank, and rear fneder will fit on 2002 Xr200R

LOL, I doubt it but if they do I want to put XR200R tank and seat on the CRF230 and get rid of the play toy fake radiator scoops.

Dwight,

Scoops.............all this time I thought those were air brakes!!!:moon: I'd also want the XR tank, seat......and fenders!:thumbsup:

yo ethan!!!

anything is possible, the bolt positions will be different, but just weld the tabs so they're in the right place! plus, i think that you actually CAN swap the tank and seat, i have seen it done........ Clancy.

I don't have access to a welder though

Al, did you see the project that I am working on ? Turning a CRF230F to a CXR250F. Untill it is finished I will be continuing to race my XR200R. Hare Scramble in Tenn. this weekend. :moon:

Ethan, I put a crf250/400 front fender on my bike as well as a universal UFO MX rear fender. The UFO fender had to be trimmed to fit and the holes had t be drilled. I was able to put it on so the back was a little higher making it more like the newer bikes. I also used a headlight/number plate off of an XR650. It game my bike an updated look. I wasn't really interested in the fake radiator scoops of the CRFs so i was fine with my stock tank. You can see pics in a thread I started titles 82 XR200R introduction and some questions. You can see each step I took in a full rebuild of the bike actually as well. Check it out and look at the pics. You might like some of the simple changes I did to make the bike look a little newer/better. I also retained all of my old parts so I can make it look just liek a stock 82 if I want too by changing some plastics.

Dwight, Tell me more about your new project, sounds interesting.

BTW how's that Old School 200 been treating you?

Hope you have a great/safe race!

The XR200R is treating me well. I plan on racing it once more in a couple weeks then send my WORKS shock in for a rebound revalve. A bit more needed. It will then become my PV Racer and Modern Backup bike.

I pick up the CRF230F on Friday. Rear Disc added and the 250 big bore kit with 11.5:1 compression ratio and # 2 cam , with XR250R 30mm Carb.

Over the next month I will be putting on lights, speedo, XR250R forks, Works Performance Shock and other mods.

Stay tuned,

Dwight :bonk:

      I got 2002 XR200R and I got ‘88 forks for it and they will not fit into the triple trees for they are too big. Do I need the triple trees off a ‘88 xr or is there something else going on with this.
       
      P.S. I’ve checked part numbers and everything is correct.

      Wanting to buy a TK link for my '89 XR100R. I have looked on the internet high and low for a used one so I don't have to shell out a ton of cash for a new one. If someone could help me out or point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.

      So I just picked up a 1989 XR100R in awesome shape. I plan to use this as my pitbike/parts getter. I have done some looking around at cool mods people do to these bikes and the aussie lift has come up multiple times. I fully understand how the lift is done but I haven't seen anyone say how long it lasts or if it breaks eventually. Obviously the longevity of the lift mostly depends on the quality of the welds, but are there any inherent risks that come with doing this to the bike? I honestly just think it makes it look better and I also plan to put the front headlight and plate from an XR600R on it as well as a tool bag and a few other things, so my main goal is to make it look like a baby 600. I have had these bikes before and I love how they ride and how reliable they are, I'm just worried the aussie lift may cause me issues in the future. I do not plan to put different shocks on the bike and will not max out the rear lift as to not make the bike super squirrley or twitchy. Any insight would be appreciated and if anyone has documented the process of how they did their lift I would love to take a look!
       
      (For those who do not know what an Aussie lift is: It is essentially relocating the bottom shock link mount slightly higher [most say no more than 11mm] so that the bike sits higher in the rear)
       
      I will post pics of my bike as soon as I get a chance for those who would like to see.

      Howdy.
       
      Got myself a CA-Plated '90 XR100R, which is awesome. Used as my little slam-pig. Fantastic bike.
      ANYHOW; Just raised the front end with some 03' CR85R forks, which was a swap from the 80's disc-brake 19' KX80 forks I used to have on there. 
      (The KX front end wil lbe up for sale soon, btw)
      Just wanted to ask the best possible way to go about raising my rear suspension, and it seems like users have gone 3 ways;
      1) Cut some 7/8 or 3/4 steel plate into spacers and use a longer bolt in the linkage to extend the travel. (Easiest)
      See Link (1)
      2) 'Aussie Mod/Lift' the rear end by cutting and re-welding the linkage mounts higher on the bottom of the frame (Mid-Difficulty) (thank SoCalXR, et-al.)
      See Link (2)
      3) Modify an existing swinger from some other bike, or even a whole new frame (CR85R? / KLX110? / SX65?) to fit, and then running linkless. (thanks SettinTrendz, et-al.)
      See Link (3)
      What do you reckon the best REAR END SUSPENSION LIFT OPTION for a play-bike/Minimoto?
      I'm 145lbs, 6ft tall. (ya, string bean) and before these mods, was riding the bike pretty much as hard as I could. I want something that'll hold up to the abuses of a full size human railing on it off road at the OHV or in the city. 
       
      Thanks ya'll.

      Hey everyone, new member here.
      I recently traded my 2001 Honda 250EX for a 1985 XR200R. The bike is tight all around and looks like it wasn't used much in its life. However, there is a noise coming from the engine that's not from the crank. It's up in the head somewhere. I adjusted the vales and started the bike up, only to hear a slightly quieter noise which led my father and I to believe that it's the Cam chain. If the bike ends up needing one, where can I find an aftermarket chain? I've checked eBay, xrsonly, and the normal part sites and I am not able to find anyone who has a chain in stock. I called my local dealer and they said they could get one for $70, but I just think that I can find it online for cheaper. It doesn't have to be OEM.
       
      Thanks
