  • Suzuki ts200 restoration

    I am going to restore this 1990 TS200R back to ride-able condition. I have a spare frame powder coated in black and the engine is ok.

    I would be keen to replace some of the plastics and metal tank with rmx parts if anyone knows if they are compatible.

      Thanks. I'm surprised I would have thought there would be a lot more common parts.

      I was specifically hoping to upgrade/change the tank, shock, seat, head stem bearings, shrouds and plastics same as RMX. I'm ok to modify them to fit if necessary. In pics they look very similar

        You won't know until you try - the TS200 was a good bike that was released about 3 years too late, so hardly anyone bought them and hardly anyone knows anything about them.

        If they'd come out before the DT200R and the watercooled KDX200, they'd have been the hero bike for a while and probably have a cult following now. Instead, they were an inferior (but not terrible) version of the much loved blue bike which was an inferior version of the under-rated green bike.

        Just keep an eye on the power valve!

          I'm having trouble finding any ready made head stem bearing kits for this bike.

          Am I correct in assuming I can just measure the inner (headstem shaft) and outer (frame race) and get some standard bearings from a bearing supplier? Any tips with this?

          The bottom bearing is the same as dr250,350 (tapered) but the there is no tapered bearing in any diagrams for the top, only ball bearings and races.

            You may be able to knock out the top race to retro-fit and go for a more modern race and adapt to a roller bearing like the bottom 30x55x17 tapered bearing

              What year is the Bonnie ?

              Why is it in pieces ?

              And why is there not a thread on the Triumph ?

                  Ahhh - good thread.

                  I see that you have been at it since Jan '16

                  - nice color on the tank btw !

                  Do you have an ETA for it on the road ?

                    Hoping end of year should be done. But no rush because i dont want to take any shortcuts. not a concourse restoration but close as i can do myself with what ive got.

                    engine is buttoned up ready to install, next big job is wheels.

                    after that is just chasing up correct brackets, screws etc.

                    The colour is "Olympic flame" and was standard colour for 69.

                      restoring bikes is great fun - when you have the money that is -smile

                      i restored a 1955 BSA for an old boss of mine about 10 years ago - luckily it was all there - would be near impossible finding parts for it - i did have photos of it somewhere

                        after some searching i believe it is

                        Top steering stem bearing 25x47x15
                        Bottom steering stem bearing 30x55x17

                        ill visit the bearing shop tomorrow and hopefully they can help me out.

                        The bottom bearing is the same as basically all DR200,250,600,750

                        the top. who knows!

                        Edit these are correct:


                        DR200,250,600,750, RM80/125, TS125/250
