My son just picked up a running 1990 XR200 for $100!
Here are the problems so far:
1. Smokes more than my 2 stroke outboard, but runs and idles good.
2. Kick starter skips when kicked, but will start with a short stroke.
I suppose I will have to do a complete motor overhaul, pistons rings valves etc. I've ordered a shop manual but would like some recommendations on where to get parts and any other experiences you experts have had.
Also... What is the cable going from the bottom crankase to the top valve area? I thought maybe a compression release, but can't wait for my manual to find out.
Thanks in advance
