 I spent a bit today getting some things wrapped up on the old xr200. It took it's maiden voyage around the yard since the rebuild. The front brake is dragging and the rear chain slider is missing a big chunk, but otherwise it ran well and felt fairly strong. At least as strong as an xr200 can with a 250lb dude on it. Lenny liked it too, but Miss Cassy didn't think he was quite ready for a ride yet ;)

Yeah, go for it. Judy and I will come down and keep Cassy occupied and looking the other way.  Can't deny the little dude his first ride!

I had some help in the garage the other day too.

Hey Hurco, where did you find the timing access plugs you installed on page six, and in your research do you recall coming across anything similar but looking a little more factory?

These are the ones:

PRO CAKEN CNC Engine Timing Plugs for CRF150R CRF250R CRF450R XR250 BAJA XR400 TRX400EX https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07GL161JV/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_C.fDDb12EQH3G

I really did want to find something closer to factory, but I couldn't find any and for the money I figured why not on these. They have worked just fine so far.

Those are very reasonably priced. If only they'd resisted the urge to lighten, badge, and anodize them.

I didn't realize the CRF, 250, and 400 all used the same plugs, so that's helpful. Thanks!
