Re: easiest way to get the most hp

you can only bore it out a couple of cc's. Pipe is good, but you won't notice that much of a change on an XR200....save the money and throw some new piston rings and valves in their...

josh, methinks you can get more than just a few cc's out before you run out of water jacket/sleeve. ive heard of 125's bored out to 140's

Re: easiest way to get the most hp

Put you first money spent on the bike into getting the suspension better. It is the best bag for the buck you can do. Even on the pro level the suspension is the largest differect between a privateer and a pro.

Don't force it, just get a bigger hammer.

Re: easiest way to get the most hp

I love these questions [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
seeing as how he never replied with what kind of bike, I'll say the best way to get more horsepower is to GTM!!

and to adjust your tire pressure LOL

but really set the bike up to you and become a better rider because 90% of ridding is half skill....

Re: easiest way to get the most hp

I know... I saw the other post about the cold starting and fell out of the chair [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

I don't know what it is about XR200's that wanting to hop them up just really makes me laugh... I mean its a PERFECT begeniners bike BUT as soon as you ask for MORE power, that means your ready for a BIGGER bike.... is it that diffficult to understand??
But I'm all for pumping up a XR100 [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img].....

.....can I sugest the "gas cap" trick again.....
