next question,does anyone have a head lying around?
Cylinder head?

Have you removed yours, to check what's wrong with it?

Maybe you can fix, or have it fixed?

Chopperpilot:
the intake is about 5mm higher than the exhaust valve.when i removed both the adjusters,the inlet has almost no free movement,where the exhaust has.does this mean a new(secondhand head) or can i just get away with replacing the inlet valve?

I'd say have a look what's going on first. My suspicion is that some hero wanted to save R250 for a new intake valve and fitted something which was lying around on the garage floor ::)

Replacing a valve seat and / or valve guide is not a major operation compared to replacing the head which will cost you around R6k (for a new one and new valves)

My son's DR200 is fouling plugs at a rate of knots. The jetting seems right and I've set the float level.
The carb slide is worn, it actually jumps up and down and vibrates badly when the bike is idling.
The plug also seems to get this groove on the side electrode after a few hours, the piston does not seem to touch it, I'm not sure if it can be caused by arcing?

Plug se kleur lyk vir my goed. :thumleft:

Die merk sal ek se word deur metaal kontak veroorsaak.

Het die ou plugs identiese skade? ???

Wag maar vir LeCap se opinie, voor jy iets doen! ;)

Kyk of jy die kamera op die punt van die plug kan fokus. Dalk kan ons beter sien, en jou adviseer. :thumleft:

Skuus ek type in Engels, ingeval Le Cap hier loer....

Some of the previous plugs had similar damage, but not all of them.
Also, one source says DPR8Z, and the other DR8EA, which is physically a shorter plug.

How much shorter is the "short" plug? There has to be physical contact to close the spark gap! What plug is prescribed by the manufacturer?

19mm vs 21mm. Manufacturer says DPR8Z for early models and DR8EA for late models. This is a very early model.

Also, DPR8Z's are becoming difficult to obtain...

My wife has a 2012 model. I might only have time to look on Sunday which plug is fitted to it.😭

I have a suzuki DR200 and want to know if it is a good idea to switch out the standard air filter for a cone filter?

Like in taking the airbox out, and fit a K&N type cone filter?

Since your long plugs look as if they get smacked I'd say maybe try the D8EA / DR8EA

It's a bad idea. Nothing filters better than a well maintained and oiled foam filter. K&N is for race tracks (as in paved and low in dust).
