I just had me 83' Xr200 engine rebuilt. The cam for it cost around 70$ and the bearing was another 25$. Had toorder the cam straight from Honda. Good luck

Re: xr\'s a money pit

i was reading through my clymer book to see if i can start putting the thing together before i forget where stuff went. I came across a problem in the manual it says you have to take it to a dealer to get the counterbalancer aligned. is this true? so far the book has said like a dozen times to take it to the dealer for various things. they also said i had to take it to a dealer to get the crank out. A over sized socket and a few light taps from a hammer took care of that. I just don't want to press the crank in and have the balance off. the cheap bastards cant even tell ya what position to put the balancer. i would asume it would only fit one way or it would hit the crank weight. definitly dont want to tear up the crank!

See if you can take a boo at the Honda shop manual and check if the info is in there. Sometime they'll recomend the dealer perform a task but if you want to do it yourself they'll explain how.

Re: xr\'s a money pit

WHEN PUTTING THE CRANK BEARINGS into the case, freeze the bearings and torch the case with propane thay will fall in. then let the bearings/case sit in the sun and put the crank assembly ine the freezer for about 6 hours or till real cold then put the crank into the case bearings. when you heat things they expand, freeze vice versa. thats why they say never work on a hot motor, everthing is expanded and tight, unlike your mother, sorry had to!
