  1. Check your kill button first then go thru what the other contributors mention and maybe look into finding another wiring harness on eBay
  2. If you drill it out use a lefthanded bit it will drive the screw out instead of in so you don’t have it use an extractor
  3. Check the needle main jet clearance. Could be a lot of dirt or sand getting thru the vent hoses
  4. Clean it off with a wire brush as best you can. Then pull the carb and spray a lot of pb blaster into the rotary & crankcase and let sit overnight. It should be loose the next morning, if not maybe pour some diesel fuel in the crankcase and let it fit a few days. Got nothing to lose
  5. If it held a bearing it was machined. Tolerances for bearing fits are usually-/+ .0005 of an inch
  6. If the screw extractor doesn’t work. Use a left handed drill with pb blaster.
  7. You might want to look into a later suzuki trail bike with a disc brake front end . Maybe a dr 200 might work
  8. j b weld first and clean it really well with alcohol & scotch brite, first & use mesh. Always worth a try first
  9. Put magnet on it. If it sticks it been sleeved
  10. Have a 2002 400 exc & could a few things first try a good plug and gas. If that doesn’t work take the air filter out to see if it’s glogged and as a last resort check your valve clearance
  11. Replate. Doesn’t look good around the power valve
  12. Just replate the cylinder to what it is now & then replace the chassis bearings as needed. For single track your bang for the buck will be new tires to match your terrain.
  13. My crank bearing always fell out by themselves on the grill. Aluminum expands more rapidly & further than steel so if there don’t drop out wear thick gloves and work on the bearings while there still warm.
  14. Ktm switched back to inverted forks in 2000. Try getting your old back. Just pulled an old used bike trick
  15. Bought both bikes brand new back in the day, & let me tell the it200 was a piece of junk. Cramped seating & a motor that seized twice on me from having a leaky crankseal. 94 wr250 absolutely reliable and a total rocket ship. Get the wr do up the suspension and roost away.
