Re: XR-200 honda missing throttle slide needle help ?

Try the Honda dealer. They are surprisingly good at providing parts for ancient bikes. Also, you can look at their diagrams and compare it with what you have to see exactly what you are missing.

Alternatly, look at the locak bike classified ads. These 200 cc engines were made for more than 20 years in pretty much identical form. Possibly somerone is parting one out. If so, get the entire carb and throttle cable and put it on.

BTW I seem to remember in the early '80's they made a 4 valve XR 200 for a couple of years (not good for parts) but they went back to the 2 valve engine like yours for many years afterwards.

hi there thanks no luck with dealer, parts are long gone i did find the retainer clip so far but still no needle

no luck on ebay or anything for just a needle or even a slide assembly with the needle from any honda even similar to this

its crazy

yeah mine is a dual shock standard XR two valve basic model

i also need to find a front exhaust head pipe as well 80-83 or 84 years single pipe style mine has been misplaced somehow but i ahve the seals and hardware and all that,

figures..



thanks
