The Library



  • I'm a bit of a Japanese Auction addict, whilst picking up parts for another project I found these gems.

    As I designer I love automotive brochures and presentation of the original product. These seem to be extremely rare and the Japanese material of the time the most compelling,

    Was it better than the Kawasaki KDX200? It's an odd motorcycle.

    1994 DT200WR

    Note Yamaha dropped the curved Kickstand in '94, not the easiest to fit onto a DTR, but an amazing upgrade if you can find one!

    Finally, the JDM DTR. Not as special as you might of thought. The 3FW is the Japanese version of the DT125R. They came standard with Alloy wheels and Electric start sprocket cover and wiring.

    The biggest note, pretty sure all 3FWs came with the original Mikuni VM26ss carb, so we didn't miss much..,

  • Great brochures there!

    I'm currently on my second DT200WR and cannot understand why they were not sold here as they would be top sellers I'm sure. Having owned x3 DT125R's I can compare the two and the power / suspension and braking from the more enduro focused 200 is a big improvement.

    I have a genuine workshop manual for the 200WR which is very helpful for repairs if you happen to speak Japanese

    I'm currently looking for a DT200R engine for my Belgarda TDR125 build I've got in motion but its like looking for a needle in a haystack, although I have sourced an aluminium swingarm from the 200R for the project



  • I’ve always fancied the 200s, parts used to come up all the time 5+ years ago,

    The WR is a great looking trail bike, a little ergonomically challenged compared to a KDX200,

    Very collectable now, 2stroke prices in general are going mad.



  • Yes very rare now and you have to hunt high and low to find anything at sensible prices I'm afraid
