Picked up a 2001 XR200

Recommended Posts

I went last night and picked up a 2001 XR200 with my son-in-law. Bike was in immaculate condition. Still has the original tires, 90% front and about 60% rear. Original hand grips with no scuffs on the ends, so I doubt the bike was ever down, if it was it couldn’t have been hard. The owner replaced the muffler and re jetted, otherwise it’s bone stock. Ingenious muffler job. He put the can off of a 2003 CRF150F on the XR200. All he had to do was cut off the mount bracket and relocate it. That muffler sure woke up the XR200. I was expecting a real dog, which is common for a stock XR200. But this thing was pretty snappy! It will be raced in Post Vintage Innovation MX and PV Hare Scrambles. Should be a fun little bike.

So if you are looking to wake up an XR200, just buy a cheap can off of a CRF150F from ebay, a little cut and weld then jetting, and it would make a nice little bike.
