I have a carburetor that I bought off of ebay that looks to be a 1999. I will be trying to register the bike in California, so it probably should have a California carburetor. The California carb is indicated by the model number on the carb. This carb has PD cast in the body, and the number stamped below it is 97ACPK. Can someone with a legit California bike tell be if that is what their number is like? I think the other 49 states may be different with respect to the A and/or C. I suspect that AC may mean California, and A means the other states. It's also possible that California has a B instead of the A. It looks like these labels apply to 1998 through 2002 models. Also, If someone has a manual for these years, that information may be in the manual. Thank you, Toby
Hello Folks I am looking for some help with some carb issues I am having with my basket case 2002 XR200R. This past summer I purchased the bike cheap. It had transmission issues and had been sitting outside for 4 or 5 years. As it turned out it had a broken countershaft. So after finding a countershaft on Ebay I began putting it all back together with a good carb cleaning as per Chucks guidelines (thx Chuck) . Upon completion I was able to get it fired up and running pretty well. It was a little difficult to start but once started it idled and ran beautifully . I probably put on 60 miles over a couple of rides with no issues. Yesterday I was out at the cabin to close up for the winter . I put stabilizer in the bike and was going to take it for a ride to get the stabilizer through the fuel system. I could not for the life of me get the bike to fire up. I checked for spark and fuel in the bowl and both were good.The plug was pretty black like it had been a little rich but the spark seemed good.It was cool out (5 degrees C) and I tried all choke setting to no avail. After about 40 kicks I tried a shot of carb cleaner through the spark plug hole. It fired up on the second kick and idled beautifully. Here is was really has me baffled as I was warming it up I was playing with the choke and it had no effect on how the bike idled. It idled perfectly at all choke settings from full on to full off. I took it for a short ride and when I returned I shut it off and then restarted it. It took a couple kicks but started ok (not great). I repeated this a couple times with the same result. To Summarize 1 Poor starting near impossible when cold out. 2 Idles perfectly and runs well once started. 3 Choke has NO effect at idle. 4 Spark seems good but shows to be a little rich. 5 Carb settings at or near factory specs. Any insight is much appreciated . ext-7
