1984 Yamaha DT200


Very good, especially for beginners


Coolant impeller broke off its shaft and caused the engine to seriously overheat. Needed a new piston, cylinder boring, etc.

General Comments:

Great little 2-stroke Dual Sport. Lots of fun on road and off.

I would recommend a Wiseco piston and Boysen Reeds, as well as opeining up the airbox and possibly removing the spark arrestor (if that's legal) allowing more airflow.

Agile, but definitely underpowered for carrying a passenger.

Liquid cooled - nice option, but adds a fair amount of weight.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
