  1. New to the forum, but have been browsing for some time. Just getting my 99 XR200 from a "friend" that held onto it while I was out of town for about 3 years. "Friend" beat it up pretty good. Bike didnt start. Cleaned carb, drained gas and oil, replaced air filter. Now the bike starts and idles! Thats all well and dandy, but as soon as its put into gear it bogs a little and when i try running it, it has really poor response to the throttle and eventually kills out. Would someone please point me in the right direction or link to similar threads? I am confident with the idle adjustment, it only has the problems when in gear and responding to throttle twist. I have tried searching and it seems everyone has a lot of confidence in these motors lasting forever, Im just not sure where to go from here. Thanks!
