On that subject, instead of buying a carb kit for mine, I bought a used carb (same brand and size) off an XR200 from a wrecking yard and swapped out all the guts (needle, jets, air screw etc.). Since the TLR was originally street legal, most of the adjustments on the carb are not adjustable.
As for exhaust, I never swapped the pipe out, preferring to keep mine nice and quiet. As memory serves me, I believe the only pipe ever made for that bike was the old style Supertrapp (much louder than stock). EDIT: just saw some posts about a WES exhaust for the TLR200 so my info here is not correct.
One suggestion I have for you is to also swap out your stock steel rims with some aluminum ones. I picked up some used ones at the same wrecking yard and respoked them myself. The less unsprung weight the better.
Another suggestion is to ditch the stock shifter and linkage. It works great for riding around on the street or trails, but in a trials event you will bash it on a rock and jam it up. I found a very long shifter off some old Yamaha that was the correct shaft size. I bolted it on and put it high and forward. It required me to take my foot off the peg to shift, but I never again bashed it on a rock.

Let's hope the aftermarket is a little kinder to the TLR then it was for the TL. As soon as it hit 20 years old Honda turned off the tap and the OEM market disappeared for my old bike!

im running an 86 tlr200 engine in my 99 xr200r and iv put a frontsprocket for a xr200r on it,it stripped the sprocket hole,there is a little bit of play on the shaft .i was wondering if any one knows if there is a different size shaft on the tlr then the xr?should there be any play from the sprocket on the shaft when it's new? thanks

What you can learn is which parts are specific to that model and which are "borrowed" from another model.
TLR200 specific parts will have this part number.
TLR200 '86/'87 XXXXX-KJ2-XXX
Once you know which parts are "generic" and which parts are TLR specific, it makes finding old parts much easier.
I used clutch parts left over from my XR200 to fix the clutch in my SL100.
