  1. Does anybody have a good video on top end repair they can share?
  2. Thanks for the info! When it broke down while riding, it was a relatively internal click/crack sound and the motor died. Didn't feel like any major internal damage. I could be wrong. But, hoping its a small thing. The previous owner had taken the XR200R to a Honda dealership and they bored it out to the next size up piston and rebuilt the entire top end...from what they told me. I assume they went the next size up in piston and that I'll be able to replace the parts with readily available size parts, if needed.
  3. Okay, thanks! I have a service manual. Looks like it could be a few different causes. And, from scanning through the service manual looks like I’ll need a few specialty tools like a valve spring compressor...
  4. Was riding down a country road in 6th gear and my bike broke down. Looks like something happened to the top end. Lost compression. I’d like to fix this myself, open it up and take a look at the cylinder. But do I have to take the motor out to tackle this problem, or can I fix this with the engine in the bike??? 2001 XR200R
  5. The engine doesn't look right to me...
  6. Can anybody recommend a stocked tool kit for my 2001 XR200R? I'd like to have a proper set of compact tools with me when I ride in case of emergency, etc. Thanks.
  7. Cool. What about the front disc brake system? I didn't think XR200 came with that except for drum brake? Good stories!
  8. Where do you generally get all your motorcycle parts that you have on your bike?
  9. Joe, I notice you have raised your handlebars. What's the story with that? I assume that's for a more comfortable riding position. Does that also allow you to stand more comfortably when riding, etc?
  10. That makes sense. My trails are wooded as well so I'm gonna keep the hand guards on... Thanks!
  11. What's people's thoughts about hand guards. I see you don't have any. Some folks keep them on, some remove them...
  12. I like mixing up the colours of the plastics and seat. Looks pretty cool. What's the black rectangle on the side cover?
  13. Looks great! What model and year is this?
  14. Thanks for the tip about xrsonly.com! Okay, I'll get to it next week and let you know how it goes, thanks again!
  15. Hmmm. Thanks for the info. The previous owner gave me a bag of old parts with the bike and it included the old timing chain, so I assume I have a new one. But, won't know until it's disassembled, thanks!
