The one and only serious DR200SE problem I found so far are the lousy fibre reinforced plastic bushes in the swingarm pivot.
I did two mods with some high end sintered brass bushes and grease nipples.
Found matching size needle bearings in the meantime. (Non standard size, difficult to find)
TBA soon :)

Le Cap, why don't you start a Djebel 200SE restoration/pimp-me-up thread? There seems to be very little documentation (on earth as is in cyberspace) available for either the DR or Djebel versions. I can't even find out what the service intervals are.

Fun bike isn't it?

And maybe a comparison thread with HP, tank capacity, price etc?

Seeing as I have only just read this how about throwing in a few curveballs, misfiring at higher revs, are we talking all the gears or just the top gears, if all the gears is it always at the same rpm or does it vary. Trust me this is very important info.
Also the problem mentioned with the needle and seat sounds more like the slide needle and needle valve, Suzuki tend to use mainly Mikuni carburettors and they have been known to give problems in that area, but it tends to screw up the fuelling in the 1/3 to 2/3 rpm range, a needle and seat that is worn would more than likely create problems in the idle to 1/3 area.
OK I have created enough confusion for now. >:D

Just the two top gears. If it happens at lower speeds at all while accelerating I don't notice it because of the acceleration. I'll try constant and rolling acceleration in the lower gears, but so far it only happened between 80km/h and 100km/h in the two top gears (it's max speed with the current gearing and carb problems).
Don't waste any more time.
