How about resistor in plug cap? :applause:


Had a stainless screw cut to length already before trouble. First thing I checked was continuity of plug and cap.

The tank says 250, but the frame and engine say XR200.

The forks are worth more than the rest of the bike!

The motor is an XR200 but the frame is from a CR 125.

Damn, you're right.

That's especially interesting for me because I'm starting a project much like that one only I'm using a 1995 CR500 frame and 1999 XR600 fork. On Monday I'm going shopping for an XR200 donor motor and ATC200 (big fin) barrel. looking at the CR125/XR200 it looks like there is more room than I thought... that's good news.

BTW ignore the date on the pics(forgot to reset it after charging batteries) and the damage on the muffler caused by previous owner when he highsided it.

I love it that dog looks like it hunts

The front down tube and under cradle (among other things) were changed to better fit the 200cc motor. Tons of mods and hand made parts are in that conversion.

Oh, a pig with a paddle!

How is it in the sand with a paddle? Does the tire rub the fender at full compression?

Well, lets just say she is better in the sand with a paddle than on the street :applause:

Yes, the paddle hits the stock fender at full compression, just barely though. If you get a MX or smaller fender she clears.

The bike is 100% street now, supermoto is too much fun :applause:

all of these bikes are sweet. its nice to know i'm not the only 600r freak! i have an '88 california plated thats in pieces at the moment but will be assembled by next weekend -fingers crossed-.

my bike has dual pipes tied into the rear stock muffler and i didn't see any here of the 1988 vintage. was hoping for inspiration on replacing that heavy pig of a pipe.. i did find one at http://www.staintune.com.au/index.html but its friggen 400 bucks! i'd rather not replace the header pipes.

anyone out there know of some options?

cheers

Go on ebay and pick yourself up a nice used White Bros E series or similer exhaust pipe for a newer XR600R for about $100-$150. Then take it to a quality welding shop and ask them to build you a simple slip fit adapter to make the stock head pipe you have fit the muffler you buy. Should be a simple and inexpensive mod.

Good luck. Jeff

I just got my 89 xr600r running this morning full rebuild on the engine. I know what you're talking about on the exhaust if you buy new for that year model the only way I've ever seen them for sale is the whole system because of the dual head pipes.XR's only sells one that's $475.I got lucky and found a full supertrapp system on ebay for $75 but i had to weld a muffler mount back on.The only way to get off cheap would be to use a later model exhaust with the 2 into head pipe and whatever silencer those are pretty common used.

:applause:

hmm, so you think that a header pipe from any later model xr600r would fit onto an '88? if so i see one on ebay right now starting at twenty bucks from a 1998.. if thats the case then it would be a no brainer wouldn't it? buy that then TONS of options open up for exhaust pipes. unless tuning or performance is affected somehow (?)
mounting?

I doubt it... If that were the case there would be one after market pipe for all years... which there are not.

Actually, all years are interchangeable. I've had a 1995 XR600r aftermarket pipe on my bike and a stock 1997 XR650L pipe on there, and they both fit my 89. The L bolt for the heatshield is close to the kickstarter pedal but it clears fine.
