2002 Honda XR200R


Great bike for a newbie!!


The shifter broke, but that is all.

General Comments:

This bike is great! I ride enduro and it does more than I ever would imagine!!!

The only thing I don't like about it is the drum brakes.

It ALWAYS starts on the first kick. Very reliable.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

Is is possible to swap out the XR200's drum brakes with regular caliper disk brakes? If so, is it needed to change the whole wheel to fit the brakes?

Great fun bike


Nothing major has gone wrong with this bike so far. Just the basic parts that gain wear and tear over 15 years.

I replaced the front brake cable, put new tires on it, and replaced the chain. But the bike still runs great and is a beast.

On any dirt bike, you can expect to add new boots, chain, replace tires, replace a stretched brake cable, tighten the rear shock, and change the spark plug. But no major problems beside the brake cable, which was replaced.

General Comments:

This is a great bike for beginners, and also if you want a good trail bike. It handles and drives great, can rebound a jump, and starts on the first kick (even to this day).

It is easy to use, I taught two people how to ride it and it took them only a few minuets to control and handle it. It can pop a wheelie, tear up a yard, and really be fun.

Honda makes a good bike, and if you are looking to buy a bike to ride around your yard or to go on trails with, this bike is great.

Did you have any problems with your engine? I have a 99 model xr200r and I'm just putting a new piston and rings into it, and clutch plates.
