    XR200 pilot jet adjustment

    Ended up lifting the needle. For some reason this bike fund a little lean.

    1995 xr200r lean condition?

    I swear I've done all the basics. Clean not over-lubed filter, Tight intake tract, no leaks. It runs best 110mj 38pj about 2-1/4 turns out and the needle lifted all the way. Float adjusted. Carb has been thoroughly cleaned. I still feel it would run a little better with a slightly larger mj. Ever hear of bikes with variations like this?

    Pd 97AC is stamped on the carb.

    1995 xr200r lean condition?

    That's the crazy thing. My other xr200r uses the stock jets and the needle positions and about 1-1/4 turns on the idle mixture screw and runs great. Float is set level. Which is about 12.5mm or around 1/2" I've cleaned the piss out of that thing, multiple times. I did switch to a 40p jet once and it ran worse, although it the jet was not a keihin brand jet. BTW I'm at about 300ft above sea level where I live so no great shakes there. No air leaks in the intake tracts either. Everything looks good.
  5. I've mostly got my 95 xr200r running well. Had to really blow out the passages for the pj and the emulsion tubes with carb cleaner then with air. (any way to remove those two little brass jets in the throat of the carb to make this easier?) It idles nicely now with pj screw out about 2--1/2 turns out. Bike had a hesitation under full throttle which I mostly corrected by lifting the needle all the way. Still pops a little on decel. I'm running stock jets 38pj and 110mj. Should I try cleaning some more? Should I up the mj and how much? Thanks in advance.

    Cross Trainer Duribility and Maintinence

    I Love my xtrainer. I bought it for several reasons. One was anticipated low maintenance. Its a large displacement 2 stroke that makes lots of power down low. I figure that if I'm not winding it out all the time I'll get lots of hours before a rebuild. It also has a slightly lower seat height than other bikes. Helps when putting a foot down in seriously rocky terrain. It also has the magic button, so No more kicking. So much easier than my old rmz250. with all the hot start levers and figuring out what to do and when to start. Constantly pulling the engine apart to check the valves ugh! I do miss the smoothness of the 4 stroke though. Xtrainer has such a light and maneuverable feel. Perfect for slower trail use. My only complaint so far is it could have wider ratio gears for if your blasting down an open road or something. 6th is pretty low.

    Cam chain tensioner failure

    I don’t want to screw around so I got new factory parts. I was able to replace the tensioner through the flywheel opening btw. It’s a tight fit wiggle but can be removed/replaced all from below.

    Cam chain tensioner failure

    I picked up both my 200s about a year ago. Both not running. And both needed lower cam sprockets and had worn out cam chains. One bike was neglected and looked like it spent time at the bottom of a river and the other one looked like it had been seriously “tested”. Lol.

    Cam chain tensioner failure

    I recently pulled the motor off my other 200. To go over the top end. It had a slight tick that I couldn’t get rid of. I thought it might be some wear on the lower cam sprocket. But I wanted to check the valves too. When I pulled the flywheel off I noticed that there was a little slack in the chain so I loosened the adjuster to check it out. Looks like the spring on the adjuster had gotten a little weak over the years and wouldn’t push all the way up. I did make a 3mm thread tool to be able to pull up on the adjuster for future use. That’s actually how I figured out that this one broke. I could engage the threads and the adjuster would just pull up and down with no tension. Hope pic below helps explain the tool. I just threaded a nail and made a handle since I couldn’t find a 3mm screw long enough.

    Already have that and the tensioner on order.

    Cam chain tensioner failure

    Good to see you’re still around. I have found much wisdom in your posts. Helped me to resurrect two of these 200s. One is a 1995, the one in the pic is a 2000. Both are mostly stock except for 80s suspension. Will do on the cranking, but not till my clutch parts come. Got the other side apart too. Btw did you see my other Q about the clutch basket?

    Clutch basket loose

    Got a clutch basket on my Xr200r that has not only lateral play between the gear and the basket but a slight rotational wiggle to it. I bought a used basket off eBay which is rotationally tight but has a slight lateral play. Is there supposed to be any play whatsoever between the gear and the basket it is riveted to? Thanks in advance for any wisdom.
  13. Hey, anyone see one of these fail. Took a little ride this morning, noticed the motor ticking at idle. Tensioner felt weird. Decided to pull it apart. Note that top part of tensioner is pulled up into shaft and bottom part is broken off. Part is called tensioner setting bar.

    XR200 pilot jet adjustment

    Oh and to correct, I am running a 110 main jet. One other thing is that bike pops on deceleration. I also checked and tweaked ignition timing. Was super close,

    XR200 pilot jet adjustment

    Just wanted to show the carb. Also tried a 42 pilot. Kinda scratching my head on this one. Both emulsion holes and jet seem smaller than the 38.
