hey gets. i am considering dual sporting my 95 xr200. the yamathumper is my race bike, so the 200 doesn't get any use anymore except in backyard, so i thought i'd d/s it.
i already have the expensive lighting coil needed to add lights to it. my dad used to d/s a 76 xl125, so i figured this bike had power enough for backroads (not much highway use), but i could re-gear (sprocket sizes, not gear box) for road use and put dot tires on it for light trail use. what do you think? i just need some advice on a direction to go. that or spend the $$$ to get my dad's old 76 cb360 on the road. but i imagine insurance would be less on the 200 ($201 /yr. on 360, not including title, registraition, inspection, etc.),and it would be more fun/ sportier.
lists of stuff needed to be done and aprox. costs would be appreciated, and/or comments, views on project (still in planning stage)
what i thought of so far:
turn signals
lights (already have front)
brake light switch installation
plates & title
key break in ignition
inspection & insurance costs ???

Go here for your dualsport kit.
This should take you to your objective of street legal XR.
They have a very comprehensive kit. It probably plugs into the stock Honda connectors.
Have Fun !
